You will feel serene in our stunning, tree canopy purpose-built property, established to deliver an unforgettable New Zealand visitor experience. Now take a moment to transport yourself to our gorgeous tree top house as you stand on the deck overlooking Split Apple Rock and beyond, while you consider your itinerary options for the days ahead. Picture yourself experiencing the feeling of the breeze in your hair as you take in the panoramic views, mesmerizing birdsong and the humming of the bees in the kanuka trees, along with the sweet smells of our fresh native tree canopy and glow worm stream as it meanders out to sea. The morning sunrise and evening moon rise are quite a splendor to watch, as you sit in your bed or on the deck and enjoy mother nature’s show with your favorite hot or cold beverage. If your lucky, you will see the migration of dolphins and the occasional whale. Sitting outside on the deck, your surroundings will provide you with breathtaking views, and the serenity around you will make you forget the stress of daily life, while indulging in the local cuisine and beverages, from natural lemonade, craft beer and boutique wine available to you if you wish. We have an appreciation for simplicity and good old-fashioned values and hospitality. The airs and graces are left at the door, so that you can feel at home and among friends. However there is no awkwardness, as all your needs will be met and we leave quietly when you want to be left alone. The house has three bedrooms, the master with a beautiful custom made double bed and the two other rooms with wood split doubles for practical family or group dynamics. The optional malty purpose sleep out can be included by request. There are boat transports to the beach or road access to the close townships with a selection of eateries and activities. On request we can provide a cooked breakfast, lunch, high tea or dinner of home style dinning, using local produce where possible. We are passionate about our environment and share a great selection of local books from past and present information. Children are welcome and we encourage a fun experience in a relaxed atmosphere. We are specialist in providing a boutique event service for significant events, such as weddings, elopements and birthdays or reunions as well as corporate events. Please simply ask us for further information. We look forwards to sharing our piece of heaven with youMore
