About the neighbourhood
Hidden spot surrounded by water views and New Zealand native bush. Slightly off the beaten track but worth while to stay in tranquil, native surroundings. This is hosted style accommodation so whilst we know you need your privacy we are here for assisting with extra details or something you have forgotten. Kayaks available for those who enjoy a leisurely kayak around the bays. Land fishing for snapper, tides permitting. Pre order sharing platter if you don't wont to drive or cook. Kaipara harbour (the largest in the Southern hemisphere) was used for kauri logging and historically settled by missionaries.
