This rental is located on the Tutukaka Coast of New Zealand, known for its rocky shores, white sand beaches, and incredible natural areas, perfect for various outdoor activities such as diving, surfing, hiking, fishing, and kayaking. There are a multitude of beaches to choose from and wilderness areas filled with panoramic views of the coastline. Tutukaka also boasts a small yet thriving food scene, with seafood being a strong suit.

The Tutukaka Coast has been recognized as one of the best by National Geographic, and the diving and snorkeling are rated second to none. Swimming off of the property's beach is very safe, and the hosts provide kayaks and stand-up paddleboards for those who want to venture further out. Alternatively, guests can choose to take one of many scenic walks, from easy to strenuous.
