A little slice of magic accessible only by water, Allom Bay Cabin. This Great Barrier Island accommodation is perfectly set up for a couple who want an off the grid back-to-nature feel in one of the most remote locations you can find.

The space
Most guests arrive on Great Barrier Island by plane or ferry then hire a car. Your host, Fraser, will pick you up by boat from Okupu beach or Okupu wharf and deliver you to your lodgings. He resides elsewhere on the property so you have privacy, freedom and peace.

The cabin is perfect for a solo traveller or couple who want to unplug from city life and enjoy a tranquil environment.

Set meters away from the high tide mark, the cabin offers the home comforts of a hot shower, gas oven, solar powered lights and a flushable toilet. It's the perfect opportunity to let your mobile phones run out of battery and escape from it all (but don't worry, we can charge your device any time you require).

For those of you who wish to explore the rest of the beautiful Great Barrier Island, trips by boat to the main road can be made by walking a 3.5km or 40 minute long coastal walking track. Please see the map in our photos to see the closest car park at Okupu Beach. We’re also happy to assist with a crossing by boat to your rental vehicle if we’re available and provided that the weather is good.

Allom Bay cabin was recently featured in Sam Stuchbury and Hilary Ngan Kee’s enchanting new book "Hideaways". Click the link to read more about the project and their experience at Allom Bay Cabin.

Where you’ll be

Great barrier island , Auckland district, New Zealand

Allom Bay is a peaceful and remote location. Ancient pohutukawas line the shore and a fresh water stream flows meters behind the cabin. Fraser built the cabin in 1987, along with the stone house he lives in with his family up the hill.

You're unlikely to see any neighbours, but if you do they're friendly and love a chat.
