The space
At the eastern end of the beautiful Pauatahanui Inlet you’ll find our three-storey north facing home across the road from a wildlife reserve. Light, bright and bathed in sunshine all day - we live on the middle floor, your retreat is on the top floor.
Wake up to the sound of tuis, bellbirds and waterfowl in the wildlife reserve, and watch the sunset with a glass of wine from your private deck. Our offices are on the same level but you and your partner will be the only guests, so you can enjoy your own space.
If you feel like company, we are happy to share a glass of wine and local tips to help you get to know the area. Our mini-schnauzer Max, will be happy to share your company too.

• TV with Chromecast. Plenty of books & games to pass the time.
• Free fast wireless internet
• Tea and coffee making facilities and a bar fridge, to keep the wine chilled
