The property was settled in the 1860's by the Sanderson family & the homestead built in 1905.
It has it's very own beach, with streams and a historic Maori Pa site which was in constant use before the 'Treaty of Waitangi'. The house was modernised in the 1990's and has been recently upgraded. It's right on the beach and enjoys all day sun. There's a caretaker who will open up the house and ensure all is running well prior to your stay (and is contactable during your stay).

This place is an absolute gem, Barrier is one of those magical places in the world and this kiwi batch with all the comforts is right at the heart of it. We had amazing fishing and diving right on our door step and the morning bird song was amazing. Best long weekend

This place is actually paradise. I thought it looked amazing on the listing, but it is 100% more impressive when you are there. We were blessed to have Blind Bay's bottlenose dolphins turn up and go berserk for over an hour - right in front of the house. Wonderful, wonderful spot…

this place is amazing, the location is fantastic - off the grid and away from world but close enough if you really need something. Paul's a fantastic host and everything is set up awesomely. If you haven't been to GBI before this is the perfect place to base yourself.
