An award winning luxury Eco B&B with stunning views of the Hokianga Harbour and sand dunes. Perched above the native bush, and accommodating only one couple, it is sophisticated and private. Relax and recharge to a soundtrack of native birdsong, and fall asleep to the sound of the sea. The lodge has been architecturally designed and constructed highly sustainably. We’re proudly off-grid, producing our own solar electricity and solar hot water. The 1.5 hectares of native bush, maturing orchards and gardens is managed organically. Delicious breakfasts are prepared using home-grown or local produce wherever possible and dinner is available on request.
