New to the rental market, this beautifully renovated beach-style house has been completely rebuilt as a luxury hideaway. Located at the top of the Onetangi Hill, in a crow's nest location, with amazing views, it's totally private - surrounded by expansive gardens.

The meticulously planned ground floor living/kitchen/dining space opens up through 10 huge glass sliders onto a huge two-level deck where you can be entranced by the views to the north,west and east, relaxing with a chilled glass of wine on Coast beanbags. You'll overlook the 13m long pool, which disappears over an infinity edge into the vast Pacific Ocean horizon beyond. On an island renowned for fabulous views, this spot is truly breathtaking.

  • This property is just sensational

    This property is just sensational. We had grandparents come over from Australia to stay with the family (three little girls) and there was enough room for at least another family. The house is beautifully appointed, it is equipped with everything we could have thought of. No expense has been spared making this house the perfect rental property. Absolutely wanting to go and stay there again

    A magical place no doubt - the views from the deck are simply breathtaking and the design of the kitchen/living space on the ground floor makes it ideal for large family gatherings. We really loved the place and did not regret booking it a single minute

    This is a stunning bach! From the moment I emailed Claire she was very easy to deal with and prompt in any correspondence we had. We were met at the property and welcomed with a full explanation of everything we needed to know. The bach was beautiful, the view perfect, the fit out was to the highest standard and everything in the place was spotlessly clean. An amazing property to rent.
