All rooms have own entrances from patio. Each has a luxurious queen bed.

Entire side of the house opens to the sun. The house is heated by 2 logwood fireplaces. Warm in winter and cool in summer.

Peaceful outlook from every single window and room. Internally, top-end Miele fittings and appliances, polished wooden floors and vaulted ceilings.

You can explore the miles of walking and horse-riding tracks - the most stunning vistas ever along the cliff.

Picnic on top of the mountain with 360degree views or swim at the beach in gentle water or enjoy the good surf break with a Surf Lifesaving club 5mins walk down the beach!

There is abundant fishing off the beach - surf-casting or kon-tiki.

Wake up, jog along the beach to the village, pick up the papers, stop for a latte and a fresh croissant, explore the Farmer's market.

Let us know if you want Pilates workouts, nutritional and health programmes, including guided walks and activities such as Stand-Up paddleboarding and Tai Chi.

In the morning, the light starts from behind the Hen and Chicks islands and the valleys around you slowly unfold. In the evenings, the sky glows brilliant pink, from the cliffs you can see dolphins and schools of fish.

At night you see the milky way. You can hear kiwi in the bush and see glow-worms if you explore the grottos.

Restorative - emotional, physical, soulful

Such a wonderful property in every aspect.

  • 5 of 5

Such a wonderful property in every aspect. Looking out over the rolling hills, the farm animals that we made friends... The property impeccable - high end appliances, (Nespresso machine with Nespresso brand capsules) and fixtures, beautiful quality linen and towels. Lovely and warm with all day sun and a log fire. There was an extra heater although it wasn't needed. Fantastic walking tracks, adventures around the property. The homemade cake and bubbles on arrival a lovely surprise on arrival.

HIGHLY recommend.

  • 5 of 5

HIGHLY recommend. Home within a farm setting situated within a 1000 acre ranch right on ocean. Traveled NZ 2.5 weeks w/kids (2&5yrs), this was one of most memorable places we stayed. Home is comfortable, well cared for, had all essentials. Forests and tracks around farm were fun to explore. Beach and cliff walk were amazing/beautiful. Town near by has activities, good restaurants. Did day trip to Bay of Islands, easy to get to, great little towns along the way. Very helpful owners. LOVED IT!

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here in November and the house and location are awesome. Best place we stayed our entire trip. Must go on the cliff walk, the views are unbelievable. Easy beach access, very private. Must visit the chocolate factory too. Louisa is a great propery manager and very accommodating...had a bottle of wine and cake waiting for us upon our arrival. You will love this place if you stay here!

The Bach was impeccable.

  • 5 of 5

The Bach was impeccable. Well appointed. The nicest home of all our locations in New Zealand. The location was Paradiasical. Loved the farm setting with the Sheep, Cows, affectionate Horses and delightful llamas. Even the pigs were cute. LOVED! LOVED!! THE CLIFF WALKS AND THE MIDDLE TRACK WALK LOOP TO THE CLIFF WALK WAS MY FAVORITE. Our family enjoyed the tide pools as we saw so much. Lots of star fish, sea urchins even caught a magnificent octopus. Lots of sea shells too. Thank you so much!!!
