Enjoy the panoramic views of Whangapoua Beach
and out over the Pacific ocean with the morning song of the tui. The
banded rail will appreciate any soggy bread or leftover toast you toss down
to them in the garden below as they chase each other around the trees. In
the evening watch the woodpigeons and mischievous kaka while sitting on the
deck having your pre-dinner drinks and enjoy a good nights sleep with only
the sound of the morepork calling.

the Whangapoua estuary, by Okiwi airport, are a 5 minute drive by car.

uninhabited beach. Popular walking tracks in the vicinity including the

Canyon track to Hirakimata (Mt Hobson).
It's a fifteen minute drive to Great Barrier
Islandís best, natural deep water harbour at Port FitzRoy where you can eat
a burger at the 'The Hub' down by the water and then walk off all the
calories on a walk to the waterfall or up to Lookout Rock overlooking the
harbour. In the evening take a break from cooking and indulge in a
drink and meal at the Port Fitzroy Boat Club.
