Has amazing, unobstructed North-facing 270 degree views over Medlands beach, bay and mountains beyond. Just a few minutes walk to spectacular Medlands beach via road or a bush track. The entire house is eco friendly with drinkable rain catchment water and solar panels providing all electrical power.

The kitchen has a large fridge freezer with gas stove and hobs, with a massive solid concert island bench.

Pedestrian access via foot bridge (from camp ground) across stream and then an eight minute walk to the house. Vehicle access to all houses requires crossing of this Oruawharo tidal stream at low tide!!! A 4WD vehicle is required, but what I include is a 4x4 Toyota Hilux on opposite side of foot bridge to be used free of change (exclusively on this side only) during your entire stay for transporting passengers and luggage to the house. There's a meet and greet at the food bridge to exchange car keys and unlock the house.

All meals are self-catered therefore if you want specialty items it is suggested you bring these with you to the island although there are shops and cafes located at Claris, Tryphena and Port Fitzroy if you have your own transport.

Barrier is an amazing destination with world-class surfing, fishing and diving on your doorstep. The southern end of Medlands beach is suitable for boat launching.

Phone/ Internet / Laundry facilities are located at Claris adjacent to the general store.

Mount Hobson summit, Kaitoke natural hot springs and historic kauri dams are worth the walk.

Please note: For groups of up to 8 people, there is a studio available for the additional guests. You can view this through the listing #45273

  • Wow

    Wow.... Awesome designer home, amazing location and view over the most incredible ocean beach and coastline. The beds were super comfortable, we had everything we needed and more. Perfect place for a break. The appointed Manager, Chris, was extremely friendly, helpful and extremely accommodating. We would love to be back at some stage in the future and can thoroughly recommend the property to anyone wanting some downtime from the hustle and bustle of Mainland NZ! - You will love it!

  • I would categorize this special place as a rare gem

    I would categorize this special place as a rare gem. There are a lot of accommodations which are very basic which you expect on an island. However, this luxurious villa will make you feel like the king of the hill with a view to die for! Very well maintained and you can feel the love the owner has put into his house. We stayed here with our parents and we had an unforgettable holiday. The walk from the camping up to the apartment takes 10 min but the view is very nice.
