Overview

Photos and Description of this Te Arai holiday apartment

Apartment, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2)

If you are looking for the genuine rural getaway (not the Hyatt) and wish to relax and recharge in the unique experience of Millers Ark, Paul and Josephine Miller can provide guests with a rare opportunity to access a pristine piece of the New Zealand coastline and experience the culmination of over 45 years of their artistry and dedication to creating this unique and enchanting property and grounds. Take an outdoor bath, wander through private gardens and established olive grove, lake and forest or stroll a gorgeous 10 minute bush walk to the beautiful unspoilt white sands of 20km long Pakiri Beach.

Millers Ark is a two story home with a unique vaulted wooden loft hand built by Paul and Josephine Miller, with their home upstairs and a private self-contained studio apartment on ground level, opening out onto the gardens.

The Studio is a private, cosy apartment with ensuite and has a comfy queen bed with private access with a breakfast patio and separate BBQ area. ( If you require extra beds please enquire) Guests are also welcome to use the glorious and private outside bath set in our tropical garden and banana grove.Enjoy the environmental activities at Pakiri Retreat which include peaceful walks in the garden and grounds, along the bush walk and the beach, as well as swimming, surfing and relaxing at the beach. You can enjoy your meals with a glass of wine in the dappled shade of our olive grove. There is an abundance of additional local activities all within a short 5 to 25 min scenic drive away; including Pakiri horse riding, Mangawhai cafes and chocolates, Matakana Wine Country (renowned for its Farmers Market, movie theatre, restaurants and sculpture trail).

Stunning and such a special place. Amazing garden, all the facilities you need in a bach. The walk to the beach is beautiful, the beach itself is pristine. A real treat

There was want for nothing in the property and once you get there, you don't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

There was want for nothing in the property and once you get there, you don't want to leave! The outdoor bath was a real luxury! We were there in the end of Spring and the orchid (which is more like a mini garden of Eden) blossoms filled the air with their scent. So many native birds to listen to and the room is extremely comfortable. If you did want to leave for whatever reason, Matakana is a half hour away but you probably won't want to leave at all!

We enjoyed our stay a lot.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay a lot. We rented the little studio. It actually is quite small, which surprised us. It's very cute though and the bed is super comfortable. The hosts and the farm and the beach made our stay very enjoyable.
