ON THE SHORES OF PORT ABERCROMBIE - amazing clear clear waters and a fishing and snorkling paradise.
A STORY BOOK COTTAGE - This place wraps you up in the winter or lets you bask in the ambiance of the bush and ocean on the large deck in summer. It has views from every room and is as sunny and light as you can get. Not that it is small - 3 levels leading from the lounge living dining floor up the bathroom laundry area and then up to your seaview bedrooms.
A COUNTRY KITCHEN that only makes delicious food. From the stove top coffee making gear to the awesome woodrange this kitchen has everything you will need. An LPG gas stove and oven if you don't want the wood range going. You will enjoy cooking and looking out at the small stream and bush, or turn and gaze out to sea while you stir your coffee.
A COSY LOUNGE for you curl up with one of the 'books galore' or watch SKY TV or a DVD
JUST 40 METRES OR SO down to the shore where you can fish, boat, swim, snorkel or just laze. Swimming with a mask and snorkel opens up a world of wonder as the fish life is superb - right there in front of your holiday home. Or take the dinghy (provided) and row out to the little island off the coast to explore. Some people bring a small outboard or you may be able to hire one, so you can motor around to Port Fitzroy for the morning paper or the takeaways.
TRAMPS GALORE abound on Barrier - if you want to get out and about you can go to the the famous Kauri dams or walk into the thermal stream at Whangaparara, or just go for an hours tramp from your holiday home to an idyllic isolated south pacific beach.
