Simon Carnachan is responsible for designing a number of New Zealand's landmark beach houses. Calianne is a grand fusion of Simon's creativity, construction expertise and a substantial budget. The voluminous roof draws on influences from the communal buildings of the Pacific Islands. A theme that extends to the flow through ventilation, multiple adjustable louvres of cedar and glass: Air-conditioning courtesy of sea breezes.

Fringed with a clipped hedge of Hibiscus and surrounded on 3 sides by flat lawns large enough to zip flick a Frisbee. Out front and centre: Doubtless Bay. The front garden ends with the sand of Coopers Beach. A stand of 6 mature Pohutukawa lean right out over the sand. They provide a degree of privacy and infinitely adjustable sunbathing shade.

The property is ideal for a multi-family holiday. Encompassing 335sqm the home features 2 master bedroom suites and 3 lounges in the core dwelling and accommodation for a further 12 people in the Southern wing. Upstairs, fun bunk rooms for up to 8 children have skylights that swing open to reveal the Milky Way. A central courtyard is completely private from the outside world and serves as the entertainment hub.

Appointments and chattels are of a quality that are befitting a home of this standard. Coffee machine, 2 large fridges, 2 dishwashers, monitored security system, unlimited speedy wi-fi, 2 TV lounges (no TV in the main lounge). A pair of 2016 Viking Kayaks and accessories. One a Profish 400, a purpose built fishing kayak, complete with a kit that includes all the tackle you'll need to be grilling Snapper come sunset. The other an Espri model, a bay cruiser with a few rod-holders.

There are a handful of properties of this calibre in Doubtless Bay. Only one is available for a few select groups of guests that seek a stay in a Kiwi Beach house designed by one of our most revered architects. A combination of design and location that delivers a perfect sub-tropical cocktail of casual cool class.

    Calianne was the perfect place for our large family including grandchildren to stay. The house is beautiful with plenty of room for quiet spaces as well as for communal gatherings. The beach is close and great for swimming and walking. A truly magical spot and we’d love to return to enjoy this amazing house again.
