The Pearl of Whakatiwai. A completely restored Bed/kitchen/dining room with separate shower and toilet. This house was built in the 50's and so we have lovingly recreated the whole 50's vibe for your enjoyment. Right on the edge of the Firth of Thames you can lie in bed and see the views that go on forever. A great little kitchen with new oven and fridge, plus all the tools you need if you want a "foodie" get away. Great fishing right on your doorstep.
“A beautiful, serene setting to watch the world go by. Loved our little getaway - Roimata and her son Hunter were great hosts and provided amazing homemade bread, fruit, eggs and more. Roimata's attention to detail really makes this a special place. A great place to explore with a beautiful coastline on your doorstep and regional parks nearby. Could have stayed longer. Thank you!”
A tramping-style A-frame chalet nestled against rimu trees on the edge of a stunning 15-acre native forest block close to the Hunua Ranges in rural South Auckland. Built by the owners using macrocarpa timber grown on the property, it was intended to be a place where their grandchildren could enjoy sleepovers in the forest and afternoon adventures. They soon realised though, that such a special place should be shared so they decided to make it available to others. Cosy in winter, cool in summer!
“This is a lovely little retreat with many thoughtful touches throughout. Beautiful land with many treasures to explore which we were shown by the amazing host Ken, including a glowworm tour which blew us away - there were eels and crayfish to spot too. Very special place to stay, highly recommend.”
