Most magical spot on the Kaipara Harbour. Secluded, walks, safe swimming, great fishing and views. Couples, solos, families (roll out bed, space for a tent).
Kitchen facilities and hot-water shower. It's glamping - use the nearby meticulous public toilet. Fish from the beach or boat - ramp nearby and space to park your boat) or kayak.
With historic Batley House - and us - nearby, you'll be on a peninsula on a 1000-acre farm less than two hours from Auckland and 20 mins from Maungaturoto.
