Fantastic base to explore the Far North.

Our retreat is on the main west coast highway in a beautiful part of Northland. We're in the heartland along the west coast between the Hokianga Harbour and Ahipara Beach on the scenic road nestled at the base of Orowhahana Mountain and next to the Herekino Forest. Set in a hidden forest glade, this property will surprise you.

Easy access to all Far North attractions. A great base to explore Ahipara beach only 15mins drive, golf course, or similar distance to Herekino harbour.

The driveway is a work in progress and has two easy stream fords and a steepish hill that you need to drive assertively.

Lovely tranquil location, surrounded by native.

  • 5 of 5

Lovely tranquil location, surrounded by native. Privacy for couples having stand-alone buildings, but central communal area in addition. Great pizza oven, and nice to use the hot tub. Rented the place with a group of friends and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Would recommend it to others.

Awesome place! such an interesting place to stay - 10mins from the Ahipara surf. Comfy place to stay for many people with open fire & pizza oven, and even a hot tub. Would recommend

Very beautiful and nice place.

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful and nice place. Guest houses are very tidy and comfortable. Even though the place is ran by solar power, to be honest for 3 days we never had a need for any electronic device. The place has a nice mounting view that you never stop to enjoy. If you want take a rest from the busy city life, this is definitely the place you should visit!
