A retired farmhouse renovated as a simple but comfortable dwelling overlooking Tryphena Harbour. Faces west, so gets the full setting sun. Surrounded by pasture and bush, totally private. Guided bush walk available and it’s close to the beach and shop. The beach also has a boat ramp and is safe and great for children. Like all Great Barrier residences, the house is totally off-grid - solar energy and bottled gas for cooking and hot water. Two wood burners for winter warmth and comfort. Wi-fi and television (Netflix and Freeview). Lots of living spaces, 3 bedrooms, each with a queen bed. Extra sofa-bed and single mattresses if required for additional guests.

    This home was everything we could have asked for! We were 3 couples and each had our own room with comfy beds. There were 2 bathrooms, 2 sun rooms (one with an awesome view of the water) and a nice balcony. The kitchen had all you needed to cook and we enjoyed the fireplaces in the dinning & family room at night. Derek was an amazing host in answering questions before hand and giving advice on things to do on the island. Wifi worked well, plenty of parking and even a short walk away from a general store, cafe, bar/restaurant on the water. Do note the house, and the whole island, is off grid. This means rain or creek water to drink and no hair dryers as the house's power is from solar panels. Even with this, as it is part of the charm, all 6 of us enjoyed our stay and would come back! P.S. Sunset was amazing from the balcony!

    We stayed at this property for 3 nights and absolutely loved every minute of it. Being a large family group (9 adults and 2 children), we often struggle to find a place that's available to accommodate all of us and that doesn't feel too small. This property was perfect and so spacious too. It allowed us to be together without feeling like we were in each others space at every moment! Derek, the owner went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable for the duration of the stay, even providing extra towels and linen for the sofa bed and extra mattress that we required. Communication with Derek was great from the time we booked to the last day of our stay, which meant we knew exactly what to expect. And this beautiful, spacious property with magical views far exceeded our expectations. We were so grateful to have had the opportunity to stay at this wonderful property and create some unforgettable memories! We couldn't have asked for a better home for our family holiday and hope to co
