'Motuhora Rise' Retreat is nestled in the beautiful native bush with abundant bird life including the Kiwi. You'll love this peaceful and private 'retreat' environment. It is only a 7 minute bush walk to the town and a 5 minute drive to Ohope Beach (New Zealand's most loved beach) which is a safe swimming and surf beach. Nearby Ohiwa Harbour is perfect for stand up paddle boarding, fishing and kayaking. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.
