Stunningly beautiful - not only is this a magic location, the house is the perfect blend of beach house and luxury, modern yet unpretentious, and truly relaxing. Sitting above Staffa Bay, you are just a stone's throw from Matapouri, Woolleys Bay and Whale Bay, three magnificent Tutukaka Coast beaches. No matter what the weather - glorious sunshine, stormy rain - the views are spectacular.

Like a good wine match, the house sits and fits into the environment seamlessly. Designed to capture the sun and views, the living area and bedrooms face north and open onto the front deck. The spacious master bedroom has a king bed, large ensuite (relax in the bath while enjoying the view) and large picture window. The garage studio with its own toilet opens onto a garden and more views! The open plan living area incorporates a very well equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge, with an open fire for the best in winter holidays. An additional outdoor area beyond the dining area is the perfect place to gather in the evening and relax around the outdoor fire.

The hardest decision you may have to make is which beach to go to today? Within a short drive is Sandy Bay (renowned surf beach), Woolleys Bay (great for boogie boarding, walking, swimming), Whale Bay (where bush meets the sand - an idyllic picnic spot),and Matapouri Bay (the jewel of Tutukaka Coast). Tutukaka is the place to launch your boat, wander the shops and cafes, or catch a dive expedition to the Poor Knights Islands. This is a fantastic place to stay while you explore the paradise that is around you. Whether you decide to spend your days on the water, at the beach, or lie back and soak up the vista from your lounger on the deck, the choice is yours. A word of caution - you may never want to leave!

    Just wonderful! Once you draw breath again after stopping for the seriously incredible panoramic view, you realise that absolutely nothing is in this accom without thought- it really was perfect. We were here for my father's 75th and brought with us our children, incl. a 2 yr old & adults and it worked for all of us. Ample space! Ample views in all bedrooms! Gorgeous finishings & 2 fantastic fireplaces. Thank you! Without a doubt best accom, don't hesitate book it!

  • Drop dead gorgeous

    Drop dead gorgeous. Just breathtaking - fabulous views. House is lovely. Hard to leave it and it was perfect for us as the weather was very wet so we had great space inside. And amazing neighbours too! (okay, I confess, we are the neighbours but with an overflow for an event this was just great).

    A superb property that we struggled to leave as it was so beautiful and relaxing! Amazing views, excellent features and great proximity to beach and bush walks...a credit to the owners who developed this. We will be back one day??

  • Stunning location with magnificent views

    Stunning location with magnificent views. The house treated us very well and great set up for a couple of families with kids. Enjoyed the use of all the outdoor decks, bbq and truly relaxed. Many beautiful beaches in the area (Whale Bay was our favourite) and looking forward to coming back to this special part of the world.
