About the property

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).

Loved the amazing garden, full of life! Paul seemed very passionate about his garden of eden and the property and that shows as soon as you step in. The walk to the beach is absolutely gorgeous. Highly recommenced this if you want to experience a serene country living!

Such an incredible place built with love.

  • 5 of 5

Such an incredible place built with love. Josephine really really has cultivated a garden of Eden, and the outdoor bath will keep you happy for hours. A ten minute walk through the bush takes you to a deserted part of pakiri beach. Really hope I get to enjoy this place again. Thanks for having us.
