This lovely little cabin sits at the far end of our house with the deck facing the beach and has wonderful views.
It is totally private from us as it is a free standing building.

From your room you walk out to the deck facing the beach which has seating, lovely place to relax for two. On the other side of the deck is a cute bathroom.
If you have just arrived from Overseas I would suggest you stop in Whangarei to do some shopping perhaps at pak n save or countdown. We do have a local store with limited supplies or we can help if you arrive late in the day.
We have kayaks that you can use.
There are several surfing beaches approx. 10 minutes away.
If you are a keen fishing person we can guide you to them, just bring your own gear and the store has good bait and good prices. If you wish to bring your own boat there are two boat launching places, one just around the corner the other 10 minutes away.
There are some great walks in the area, short and long. We are very close to the Te Araroa - The Long Pathway - which is the walkway through NZ. On our property we have a Maori lookout Pah site which you can walk up to and further enjoy more wonderful views. There are other walks including walking the longest foot bridge in the Southern Hemisphere and visiting the crystal clear lagoon in the area.
This is a great place to set up as a base. You can visit other parts of the Tutukaka Coastline which is about 45 minutes south from here and has some great Restaurants and lovely beaches and beach walks. Catch a boat from there to the Poor knights and see this astounding place to snorkel and dive.

Other things to note
We collect our water from the rain and would appreciate you being careful when using our water as we can easily become short of water.
If are from NZ could you possibly bring your own towels to helps us conserve water? I would very much appreciate that.
I understand overseas travels dont travel with linen and towels and will supply these for you.
Primarily we want you to enjoy yourselves as much as possible!
We do ask that the cabin is left clean and tidy, dishes done. You can smoke outside but make sure the door is closed
