***Finalist in the 2016 Book A Bach Awards - Best Setting Finalist (1 of 5 places selected within NZ)***
Neighbours are few and far between. The area is extremely quiet and traffic volume is very low. There are a number of locations nearby to launch a boat. There are some great fishing spots on and off the water. Elliots Bay (5-10 walk) hosts surfing competitions and is a popular surf beach for locals. Taupiri Bay (5 min walk) is one of the safest swim beaches in the North. Little Taupiri Bay (across the road) is your own private little bay (although the locals sometimes enjoy it as well). We regularly see dolphins, Humpback Whales and Orca's from the deck of our house!
You will get to enjoy our new Spa (Hot Tub). We now have a Hot Springs Aria Spa Pool installed. This 5 person spa pool is top of the line and has been voted the best Spa Pool (Internationally) by Consumer Digest on more than one occasion. Sit back and make the most of the 35 jets this spa has to offer plus enjoy the sea views and the stars at night. A luxury added just to ensure you really do get to relax at Little Taupiri, Stunning Views!

Double glazed windows throughout for warmth and quiet.
Guests have access to kayaks, gym equipment including a spin cycle and free weights. You will need a car. The nearest shopping centre is Russell which is 25kms away. There are some beautiful walks in the area including Cape Brett and along Elliots Bay (and the joining bays).
Someone will be there to let you in (or at least talk you how to check in via a phone call) and make sure everything is okay for you. Someone will also help lock up the place upon your departure, should you require this. The expectation is that you treat the home as if it was yours - with care. We simply ask that you leave the place as you found it. Please smoke outside.
Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$150.00 per stay); Linen (included)
Please note there are security cameras in and around the property. These are used by the owners to ensure the property is protected when no one is there. The two internal cameras will be covered when guests are there but uncovered when the house is empty (for security purposes).
