Location + Surroundings

Nestled under the foot of Mt. Aubrey overlooking McLeod Bay, this incredible and secluded property is in the ideal location of Whangarei Heads on the North Island of New Zealand. There are lots of great walks and tracks, and guests can delight in choosing their favorite beach, from the many sheltered bays to the lifeguard-patrolled surf beach, Ocean Beach. Ocean Beach is wonderful for surfing, bodyboarding, and just splashing in the waves. New Zealand's latest DOC marine reserve is at the end of the Reotahi road. The combination of deeper water and swift current flows has produced a diverse reef-fish population unusual for a harbor environment. Just 30 minutes away is the city of Whangarei, where guests can have a look at its quirky clock museum, which houses the largest collection of clocks in the Southern Hemisphere, or enjoy a stroll along the Kauri canopy boardwalk. Moreover, the city of Auckland is only three hours away by car.
