Leighton Lodge is our comfortable family home which we share with visiting guests. It is of modern wooden design with all facilities normal for a beach property in a rural location. Extensive landscaping and gardens complete the quiet and peaceful position 200 M from the safe sandy beach. Where possible we try to be environmentally aware wanting to preserve our unique coastal location.
Your hosts are retired professionals who enjoy hosting a wide variety of overseas and domestic visitors. Maire is a capable provider able to prepare a variety of healthy meals utilizing fresh vegetables and fruit from our garden and seafood when available.
Opito Bay is a remote rural settlement of around 250 homes but boasts of only about 50 permanent residents. We don't have cafes , street lights or parking and traffic concerns. Instead we offer peace , tranquility, abundant bird life, and a safe sandy beach for the enjoyment of boaties, fishermen and all water activities.
