Motupipi sits on a private peninsula consisting of 20 hectares of native bush with beachfront access. Accommodation consists of a fully self-contained two bedroom cottage which has spectacular views from the deck, which is only 50 metres from the shoreline. The property includes a 1.2 kilometre bush walk which is fabulous for viewing native flora and birdlife. At night, sit on the deck and listen to the morepork and kiwi calling.
The cottage is a 20 minute drive to the Kerikeri village to cater for all shopping needs including weekend markets. The seaside town of Paihia is a comfortable 40 minute drive and offers a wide variety of tourist excursions, including chartered trips to Ninety Mile Beach and Cape Reinga, for those wanting to see more of the Far North area.
For those wanting to simply relax at the beach, this is the perfect place for peace and tranquillity. Boats up to 6 metres can be launched from the beach with a 4WD.
Motupipi sleeps two comfortably in the main room (queen bed) with the optional use of a second bedroom, which has two single beds (with a quaint curtained doorway and three-quarter height wall separating the main living area).
The view and wide open green space beats TV. Sit on the deck and watch the sun go down and watch the birds on the lawn in the evening. Just relax, read, fish, swim, walk, play games outside on the big lawn area, sit under a pohutukawa tree and watch the tide come in and go out.
Motupipi is the perfect secluded place for either a relaxing weekend getaway or extended holiday break.
