Otaha Beachfront Lodge

10 guests · 5 bedrooms · 5.5 bathrooms
Waves sweep a stretch of untouched sand in front of this half-rustic, half-modern designer villa in the Bay of Islands. Wood-paneled floors and ceilings envelop the great room for a cozy vibe, while glass walls offer up ocean views. The 2-minute walk to the beach means you can start the day with a meditative wade and finish with a glass of wine sipped with your toes in the sand.
 
Though the location of this vacation rental is private enough to feel like your own deserted island in New Zealand, the villa is ready to pamper with al-fresco living and dining areas, a gas barbecue, and, inside, a smart TV, Wi-Fi, and a fireplace. A Nespresso machine and baby equipment will please family members of all ages.
 
This luxury lodge is laid out in two sections, each with a gently sloping roof and fold-away glass walls. The wood paneling on the ceiling and floors means sunlight casts a golden glow across the open-concept living room, a dining table for 12, and a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar.
 
Otaha Beachfront Lodge has 2 master suites with king beds and ocean views, 2 bedrooms with 2 twin beds each, and one bedroom with a queen bed. All 5 bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. Like the great room, the bedrooms get a serene yet stylish vibe from botanical-print wallpaper, geometric-print area rugs and honey-toned wood floors.
 
From the lodge’s snug spot nestled between 2 hills, a honeymoon from the everyday, it’s a 2-minute walk to surfing on the beach or hiking the trails that wind up and down the landscape. Make a short drive to stand in the mist of Rainbow Falls or learn about the region’s past at the Whangaroa County Museum. And do stop for seafood during your holiday; the town of Kaeo was named for the mussels found in the area’s rivers.
