Gorgeous huts in a secluded cove, nestled beneath the old Pohutukawa and complete with dinghy!
This is a piece of Kiwiana nostalgia - feel the joy of camping but go to bed on a proper mattress with lovely sheets.

One hut is a kitchen/dining space with gas fridge and hob top, the other a bedroom with queen bed and two single loft bunks. Follow the path to the long drop dunny and your solar shower is slung outdoors. No detail is forgotten, your escape is ready and waiting.

**No wifi available in this accommodation option.

Nothing can compare to the relaxed, tranquil nature that Driftwood provides. As a Kiwi, I love getting off the beaten track, and the simplicity yet elegance of the huts really hit the spot!

You did it. You nailed the quintessential Kiwi dream... this is absolutely beautiful

If you want somewhere to get away from it all Reef Cottage is the place to be. The beach is practically lapping at your door... Truly beautiful.

Handy Information

What do I bring? Not much! Your bach is stocked with pantry basics (incl. marshmallows), gas bottle and more. If you wouldn't take it to visit your mum, leave it at home.

About your host, Vanessa & Richard

When Richard & Vanessa set out on their maiden voyage in the 1980's they had no idea of the great adventures in store. After 8 years at sea, two became six and the Owen family found their place to dream. Now firm locals, the Owen's love the laid back barefoot culture of the Far North. Richard, Vanessa live in Kerikeri with Milli and Reef. Dee & Poppy have flown the nest on adventures of their own.

We have a great passion for sharing the great Kiwi escape and creating an inspirational space to call home for fellow adventurers.
