The tree house as the name suggests is nestled amongst large native tree. With large grounds there’s plenty of room for the boat or for the kids to play around. Elevated above the ground there are views of the surrounding hills and the sea. Inside the two large bedrooms will sleep up to about six people quite comfortably. The beds will be made up with fresh linen when you arrive. The kitchen and lounge are open plan and the range slider leads out onto the deck.

Great spot
Lovely area and old style property. Did a lot of day trips and it was a good base. The area is lush in the summer so take insect repellent.

True kiwi batch in a hideaway location, bit of a hill to get down to the water but very much worth the walk. Bach was absolutely spottless clean. I could back a 6.2 meter boat into the section but you would struggle if it was bigger. It's about 15min drive to Waihau Bay ramp which was no problem. Really enjoyed the wild life in the area and we would stay again in a heartbeat, thanks Margaret.

A Great Place to Stay
Whanarua Bay is a great spot for diving and kayaking. The Waihou Bay boat ramp is a scenic 20 minute drive away and the sandy beach opposite the Waihou Bay campground is excellent for swimming. The treehouse cottage has everything you need and is pet friendly so the pooch had a great holiday also. Margaret is right next door so is available to answer any questions or lend her kayaks. We had a lovely time and would definitely stay again. Thanks Margaret.
