Immerse yourself in nature. Enjoy 180-degree panoramic views from the mountains to the sea. Awaken to the bellbird chorus. This is a genuine tree house for grown-ups. Perfect for large groups, families, or a romantic retreat. Our guests describe it as 'a dream'. The Lookout is a treetop hideaway. Situated on the protected Peel Forest Scenic Reserve, home to countless native birds. A genuine treehouse for grownups: from the top deck you're in the tree tops, with views all the way to the ocean. From the lower decks you're nestled in the forest, with even more stunning views. Secluded, private, warm, clean and comfy. Here you can relax and unwind, in total privacy. Take a soak in the clawfoot bath, listen to the incredible birdsong, enjoy the stunning walking tracks on your doorstep. The...Immerse yourself in nature. Enjoy 180-degree panoramic views from the mountains to the sea. Awaken to the bellbird chorus. This is a genuine tree house for grown-ups. Perfect for large groups, families, or a romantic retreat.

Secluded, private, warm, clean and comfy. Here you can relax and unwind, in total privacy. Take a soak in the clawfoot bath, listen to the incredible birdsong, enjoy the stunning walking tracks on your doorstep. The property is set on over 1 hectare of private forest which becomes the Peel Forest Scenic Reserve. At different times of the year you'll enjoy masses of Himilayan Lilies flowering, a stunning display from Rhododendron, and native plants such as the Kotukutuku (tree fushia). ​ In winter snows creates a magical scene. The home is very warm and cosy, well insulated, with wood fire and heat pump. Beds are made up for your arrival with premier pressed linen. Relax on the day of your departure - no need to clean the house before departing, we take care of it for you. ​ We pride ourselves on ensuring your stay is a memorable one - let us know if you have any particular needs. Weekly and longer term rates available. This property is not suited to the elderly with limited mobility, due to the steps and short uphill walk to the house from the carpark. ​More
