Historic Waitangi, and the whole playground of the Bay of Islands – fishing, dolphins, vineyards, walking tracks and much more.

Features: Guests have three self-contained designer accommodation options to choose from on the 24 ha private eco-friendly property with direct access to the naturist beach.

The Barn is a designer apartment with a backdrop of native bush and a natural ambiance. On two levels, it looks right onto the organic vegie garden. The flax-planted roof, strong beams, purple heart floors and bold open architecture contribute to make your stay easy, comfortable and memorable. The large airy bedroom in the loft can sleep 4, in two queen-size beds. The bathroom is spacious with a generous shower. The kitchen is equipped with a 4-burner gas cook top, microwave, fridge and all the kitchen essentials.

The Potting Shed is a unique open-space building in the style of a plant conservatory. It has no full interior walls, but effectively employs lush palms and plants to separate the different areas: full kitchen with 4-burner gas cook top, microwave, fridge/freezer; shower/bathroom, toilet, bedroom (king-size bed) and lounge, all with continuous, stunning views to the beach and the bay. Suitable for couples only.

Te Whare Manu (Glamping Tent) is the latest addition to our accommodation options. Nestled above the vegetable garden, Te Whare Manu is perfectly located to catch the early morning sun on the large deck facing the sea. A king-size bed, fully equipped kitchen with small oven and fridge, plus a separate shower and toilet are provided.

Linen and towels for all areas are supplied. A washing machine for guests use is located in the Tower, with handy outside clothesline, as is an outside hot shower – just perfect when returning from the beach. Waitata Bay really is a little gem of naturism on the Pacific coast in New Zealand. In the heart of the Bay of Islands, this farm stay is ideal for couples and families wanting a relaxed and reinvigorating break in Northland.
