About our home

Our beachfront property has a gorgeous home full of special character, with easy indoor/outdoor flow onto a huge deck overlooking the bay. We have 10 acres of bush tracks, ponds and pasture right to the sea. We even have our own magical glowworm grotto! This is a truly private retreat where you put your watch and wallet aside and live with nature. With beach access only, you either walk the 400m of stunning, quiet beach, or 4WD down. All part of the adventure! We are in the heart of Golden Bay, surrounded by world-renowned national parks. Golden Bay is a land of artisans, boutique food and beer makers, and craftspeople. It is very easy to spend a few months here without running out of things to see and do.
