Created by an artist and interior designer, this bespoke holiday hideaway, the Barn at Bowentown is perfect for a romantic getaway. Every little detail has been thought of, luxury bed linens and complimentary robes, TVs in both lounge and bedroom, two person bath and full kitchen. Nestled into a private corner of reserve just a short walk to both Waihi Beach and Anzac Bay the Barn is surrounded by trees and has its own private entrance and courtyard with lounging chairs, outdoor shower and BBQ.

The space
The Barn was completed in December 2020 and was designed by local artist and interior designer Ange Lee Mackay as a bespoke romantic hideaway. The results are stunning and will delight guests. Enter via a Balinese bamboo fence into a secret courtyard garden featuring tropical planting, a Weber BBQ, copper outdoor rainhead shower, bar leaner outdoor dining table and low loungers for relaxing with that well deserved summer drink. Flowing from the courtyard into the lounge area with oversized leather couch and smart TV with unlimited WiFi and many preloaded apps such as Netflix, perfect for snuggling up to watch your favourite show. Open plan living area includes a full designer kitchen that also has a washer/dryer, air conditioning, dining table for two and all the appliances and kitchenware you will need whether you just want to make a coffee or cook a gourmet meal. The kitchen leads upstairs to a romantic mezzanine bedroom with king size slat bed that has a luxury Ecosa mattress and organic cotton linens. Relaxing in bed you can view another smart TV, we also provide Turkish cotton beach towels and linen robes for your use during your stay, these can be found in the antique Chinese wardrobe. The bedroom has an adjoining en-suite with full size double ended sunken bath for two, walk in rain head shower and feature art lighting. The Barn is carefully curated for a relaxing stay and you will want to return again and again to this unique beach hideaway.

Guest access
Please note, The Barn is a fully self contained 1 bedroom apartment, it is within a larger building that also has a garage for owners storage, separate three bedroom airbnb apartment (Apt A) and a smaller apartment next door (Apt B) used as an office during the week for two mornings only, you may occasionally see/hear the tenants of the other apartments but your apartment is fully fenced with your own private garden space.

Other things to note
Please be aware that this is not a party house but rather a romantic hideaway, as there are several apartments in one building we ask that guests be mindful of noise levels during their stay.

Also note that while wifi is unlimited and good signal, phone signal is weak here but will work well once on the driveway or street, the actual house is in a low signal blind spot so phone calls may not work well or at all within apartment depending on your phone provider.

Bowentown, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand

Our place is just a short walk across the adjoining reserve to either the beautiful white sand and waves of Waihi Beach or the sheltered Anzac Bay (no waves, boat ramp, excellent fishing). Anzac Bay has a resident coffee cart that also does real fruit ice cream and smoothies all summer long. There's also a small store just across the reserve at the camp-ground for any essentials. The adjoining reserve also has a cricket ground and newly updated mountain bike pump track. There's also a basketball court and coin operated tennis court within the subdivision of Pio Shores. From the nearby Bowentown reserve (next to boat club) there’s a walking/bike track from Bowentown up the estuary that ends near the award winning Surf Shack Café, a lovely excursion for breakfast or lunch. The nearby Waihi Beach village has a host of great boutique shops and cafes to complete your holiday experience as well as bike hire service. We also recommend the walk from the north end of the beach over to Orakawa Bay (approx 45 mins one way) and exploring nearby Waihi town and the walking and biking tracks in beautiful Karangahape Gorge.
