Surrounding Area

This truly subtropical slim finger of New Zealand in only 10km wide in parts so there are three magnificent untrammelled coastlines to explore within easy commuting distance. Experience the wild west coast, the east coast with its two harbours (Parengarenga and Houhora), and the mystical North at Cape Reinga and Spirits Bay. There are well marked hiking trails for the keen hiker or simply stroll along the unspoiled and uninhabited beaches of Henderson Bay, Rarawa Beach, Spirits Bay or Te Werehi, collecting shells as you go.Observe the amazing variety of sea, sand and land birds or maybe even catch a glimpse of dolphins in the surf. See the wild horses in the forest or on 90 Mile Beach.
An easy stroll from the Lodge takes you to Houhora bowling green or tennis courts and we are a few minutes drive to New Zealand's northernmost golf course. Four renowned surf beaches, (Ahipara, Rarawa Beach, Henderson Bay and Spirits Bay) located on three coasts ensure great odds of catching a good wave or borrow our toboggans and slide down the dunes at Te Paki Stream. Enjoy horse riding in Te Aupori Forest and on 90 Mile Beach, and through the spectacular scenery at Spirits Bay, or hire a kayak at Wagner Park and paddle around Houhora Harbour.
The waters around this slim finger of land are renowned for its excellent fishing, both sports & Game fishing, and charter vessels are available in Houhora Harbour


Our 5 year old architect designed cedar home is set in 3 1/2 acres of developing gardens and orchard with access to Houhora Harbour. The beautiful airy pavilion opens to the east and west to fine views and amazing sunrises and sunsets with original New Zealand art adorning the walls and during the colder months an inviting open fire warms the room where you can relax, listen to music, watch Sky TV, read or enjoy easy conversation. A large deck on the eastern side, and patio area on the western side of the house allows you to relax and enjoy the subtropical climate.


Two of our spacious guest rooms are on the northern wing and have their own entrances, ensuites, TV, king sized or twin beds with good views over Houhora Harbour and Mt Camel, and are peaceful and quiet. The third room is upstairs in the west wing overlooking the duck pond and farmland. It has a private balcony and bathroom and is also peaceful and quiet. The beds have excellent quality freshly ironed cotton sheets. It is possible to add an extra single bed to the rooms.


We are delighted to provide advice and assistance during your stay and can arrange 4WD sightseeing trips with your own personal guide, sports and game fishing trips, coastal walks to remote pristine beaches, trips to famous tourist spots (Cape Reinga, Te Paki Stream Spirits Bay etc) and to little known locations.
A complimentary 4WD trip is offered to guests who stay two or more nights to view 90 Mile Beach and the wild horses.
