Location & Activities

Located on five acres of coastal hillside sloping down to the water’s edge, you can relax and enjoy stunning views and nature’s beauty from the dining table, the daybed nook, or from your pillow! Watch the myriad of seabirds and native birds before you or go down to our private beach and dig your toes into the sand and gather New Zealand Clams for your kai. A private path winds to a grassy knoll by the water’s edge and a peaceful sandy cove. Wander along the beach shore and enjoy the clear waters that swirl by.
