  • Is your private beach next to the property or do I need to use a means of transportation to go there?

    We have a lovely walking track that takes you directly to it..a two minute walk down the hill. It is not "our " beach as other properties border it as well...but general public can not reach it easily.

Our place has many points to view the ocean from. If you are awake in early hours of the morning you just might hear the resident kiwi. We offer kayaks and paddle boards, or you may simply want to relax pool side. We also offer Day Trips to explore some of Northland's fabulous scenery, kauri forests, beaches...inquire about these new packages.

We enjoy walking and hiking around our beautiful and abundant country with at least one trip a year exploring the South Island . Wherever poss Foofie and Poochie come along for the adventure.

Our neighborhood is the fabulous coast line of Tutukaka. Not only can you walk to a safe swimming beach from our place, you are within minutes drive of some of the world's best...Matapouri Beach, Whale Bay, Sandy Bay. If you get bored with sunning and relaxing on the beach we have plenty of walks again within only minutes of our place. And ofcourse you can always charter a trip out to The Poor Knight Islands.
