A beautifully designed villa that is perfect for an extended family or group. With a total floor plan of 230 square meters, this home offers the ultimate in space, style and location to ensure that guests have a truly one off experience in New Zealand’s award winning island wonderland.

Filled with beautiful original fittings from old properties previously located all around New Zealand, this one off property celebrates everything that is great about yesteryear while embracing today by including items like bose sound systems, a wonderful 900mm oven with an induction cooktop and flat screen television. The kitchen is big enough to host four people in it at one time comfortably, and it opens out on to arguably, the most stunning outdoor dining area complete with a beautiful electric louver system and expansive views of Huruhi Bay. Fill the old wood burner stoves in the kitchen and the living room in winter and feel the warmth upstairs as it feeds through to the bedrooms.

All four bedrooms are located on the top floor. Each room opens out on to the verandah and to more views. The generous bedrooms have wonderful high ceilings and feature stunning ceiling roses dripping with original art deco light fittings. The stunning light filled master bedroom with its glorious views will have you wondering if you need ever leave the room.

Beautiful gardens, a wonderful large grass area for children to play on, and a track directly to the beach below, and many wonderful walking options from 15 minutes to all day, will make this the property that you will want to come back to year after year.

Two of the islands most popular vineyards Mudbrick and Cable Bay, are located on the same road just minutes away.

Please Note: This property has dirt road access for part of the way off the main road and is steep in parts. You will require 4WD access during wet weather and we highly recommend a 4WD in general. These are readily available for hire on the island and taxis can provide a 4WD should you not wish to hire a car. People mover vans that are not 4WD are not recommended as they are generally too light in the rear end for the ascent.
