Interaction with guests
Auckland airport/city return pickup available on request. Guided hikes along Sir Edmund Hilary trail and scenic tours available. Harbour & Ocean fishing available. Mountain biking, kayaking tours possible.
Though close to the city, this area is is rural and surrounded by the sea, native forest, hills and escarpments reminiscent of the Marlborough Sounds and Coromandal. We access magnificent hiking trails that will take one up the wild west coast where there is no road access. Go for a short walk around the bay or walk all day through New Zealand Native forests, cross mountain streams and swim under waterfalls.
Or just chill in this very cool space.
There is no public transport here other than an early school bus so we offer quality transport to and from the city and airport on arrival and departure. If staying additional days, we can arrange transport to the city, the local village and onwards using a variety of transport options.
