Studio house with great modern kitchen, lounge, bathroom and bedroom area.Your private deck is a lovely place to enjoy a wine and the amazing views.

Your privacy is assured as there are no neighbours around my property. So you wake up only to the sound of birds and the gentle of lap of the water.

You are only a few minutes walk from the sandy beach, with great swimming and a boat ramp right in front of the house.

A pristine harbour offers good fishing spots, plus ideal for sailing, kite surfing, paddle boarding or kayaking.Price includes 2 good sea kayaks.

With summer on it's way it is the ideal place for a relaxed get away, so you can curl up with a good book and a glass of wine to watch the sun go down.

We have lovely walking tracks in the area or it is a 15 minute drive to the Kawhia Golf Course.

There is a local horse trek available (in summer) or if you have your own horses we are happy for you to use our post and rail paddock facilities.

There are also Cafe's and some good local craft shops in nearby Kawhia.

This is also an area of historic cultural significance, with an old Pa site as our back drop. You can sit in the shade of our 1000+ year Pohutukawa tree and enjoy the ambience.

Although we are on the coast, Aotea is still central to a number of key tourist attractions in the region.

Less than 20 minutes you can be sitting in the Te Puia Hot Springs on the beach at Kawhia, watching the sun go down.

45 minutes south to the Otorohanga Kiwi and Native Bird House

45 minutes north to the Raglan Bridal Veil Falls

60 minutes scenic drive to Marokopa Falls and Mangapohue Natural Stone Bridge

    The property was so peaceful I didn't want to go out!! It was very clean and tidy. Everything you needed for a short stay was there!! The neighbours were helpful polite yet didn't invade our privacy!! My dog loved having a large area to investigate- I'm sure he didn't want to go home!!!! Owner was prompt with information!!!

  • Everything you need for a beautiful little getaway

    Everything you need for a beautiful little getaway. Loved being able to take the doggy. Some advance warning that the property isn’t fenced properly and there is livestock around would have been helpful - though our doggy managed fine and LOVED the beach and the space. Thank you so much for sharing your little slice of paradise.
