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, and a massive concert island bar.

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 5 or less, the main house is available on its own which you can view through the listing #45210

  • Very comfortable and well equipped house

    Very comfortable and well equipped house. The view of the beach and distant ranges from the main room and deck is spectacular. While there is no dining table inside there is a four seater bar and a large table on the deck that easily seats 8 people. The outside dining option is weather dependent. The kitchen is very well sit up for cooking large family meals. Use of the dishwasher and clothes washing machine would be useful for large family groups staying a week or more.
