Located at Whananaki North, 40 minutes drive northeast of Whangarei. The cabin is a few metres from the sea on a 4 hectare bush clad property within private Tauwhara Bay.

Power and water supplied. Cooking and ablution facilities are a short walk to the house garage, which has been adapted to a kitchen and dining area. Alternatively, bring your own BBQ and dine on the cabin's deck. The garage has a flush toilet and there is a hot outside shower.

Swimming is safe, while snorkeling is often rewarding. Small boats can be launched from the beach but trailerised boats need to use nearby ramp facilities. Fishing is excellent. A large grassed area by the beach is suitable for games or just relaxing.

Local activities include kayaking, horse trekking, bush and beach walks, and surfing at Mouresses Bay, which is only a few minutes walk.

Takeaway food and general provisions are available at the Whananaki Beach Store, a 5 minute drive away.

Cabin accommodation operates in conjunction with our boutique luxury lodge, but your privacy is assured as there will be no lodge guests when there are cabin guests, and vice versa.

More information and cabin video is available on our website.

  • The location is surreal

    The location is surreal. Magnificent pocket of New Zealand coastline that will have adults and children entertained for days. The cabin itself is very basic as the site outlines, but also adds to the charm of the place. The relatively steep walk up to the bathroom/kitchen area is good exercise, with a full oven/stove, your own fridge/freezer and even a separate bait freezer. We could have stayed a lot longer!

  • AMAZING location

    AMAZING location. Beach serene. Huge pohutakawa to sit under. Safe swimming. Sun. Sand. Cute cottage. Bit of a trek up hill to kitchen and toilet but not a big deal. Highly recommended quiet and remote escape
