Wake to the sound of birdsong in this leafy oasis. Flanked by Nikau palms, mostly visited by our large Kereru for the red berries, a natural native bird sanctuary.
This contemporary cottage boasts sleek, modern finishes with desert-chic decor and up cycled furniture. Set in an subtropical garden with lush vegetation, private and tranquil. Home away from home, enjoy this piece of paradise. Great location 300m to Palm Beach, restuarant and local store. Large selection of excellent vineyards and numerous walking trails across the island.
“Completely private, cozy, and homely, within few minutes walk to cafe, restaurant, and Palm beach.”
– Neill, your host

We love this island and both my wife and I live and work on the island. We enjoy traveling and meeting local and international travellers. We spend a few months a year in Indonesian one of our favourite destination amongst others. Originally from Cape Town South Africa we immigrated to NZ in 1999 and made NZ our home. Our place has a Bali feel to it, subtropical plants and mature nikau grove protects our privacy and creates a sanctuary. We like our guest to enjoy their stay and we are available anytime to be of assistance. It's not only what you say but what you do that gets remembered.
