Cabin is off the grid so there is no microwave or TV. However it has all you should need. LED lighting and a small inverter to charge cellphones and laptops. We provide a chillybin with ice which will keep your drinks/food cool. Next to the cabin is a cookhouse/shower/flush cassette toilet. Two burner gas cooker with pot/frypan/cutlery etc. Small BBQ available on request. Good sink and benchtop. 10l/m califont and good shower. Flush cassette toilet. LED security lights. Comfy, cosy and very unique.

Right on the beach. 5 minutes from Okato township with a couple of great licensed cafes, takeaways and grocery supplies. Right on Surf highway 45 with a heap of good breaks.

The beach is a typical west coast beach and not great for swimming though it's ok for a dip at high tide in the boat race. Oakura beach 15 minutes up the road.

Pet friendly place. Well dogs anyway. We have two that might greet you and lick you to death. However if you bring a cat it may be on the menu.

We have found it to much hassle for single nights so only take booking for two or more.

Dogs are welcome if they are fully house trained and are old enough to not be chewing things. If you intend to have the dog sleep inside with you please bring their bedding and don't let them on your bed. (You'd be surprised what some people think is acceptable...) Let us know if you intend on bringing dog.

Note that cellphone reception is a little patchy at cabin. Is ok a few steps up the road.

Please bring your own linen though it can be provided for $20/stay. Washing machine and dryer available up at our house.

Call 0274085414 for any enquiries

Special conditions: We would rather no kids. With the pond and easy access to the beach and the way OSH is nowdays it's just not worth the bother.

    Great location right on the beach, feels private and far away enough from the owners house. Very peaceful setting. A bit regretful that we didn't bring the dog as he would have enjoyed it there!

  • Lovely spot with a great view

    Lovely spot with a great view. If you are not looking for an expensive place to stay then this is perfect. Quite small and basic but cute all the same. The nearest town has great cafes and stoney river is good for a swim.

  • Awesome place to stay

    Awesome place to stay ... fabulous friendly easy going hosts, super considerate. The room was clean, cosy and warm and had everything we needed. Great location right above the beach, quiet and private. We were only there 2 days but left feeling refreshed and inspired, we'll be back for longer next time!
