The block house was so warm considering it was the middle of winter, spacious and
really comfortable bed which is a must for me. Amazing shower as well. Very close to the glints gully beach and Dargaville. Would highly recommend it and would stay again lovely host Christin
Best of both worlds, Rural location, and fantastic NZ West Coast Beach close by, Christine the owner and will meet and greet, and can offer a wealth of local knowledge both past and present.
The property includes a small lake that has a walking track around so you can share some time with black swans, and a myriad of water birds, and aquatic life, take some bread and feed the eels.
In summer the lake offers a great swim.
Everyday you wake up the outlook changes, from a misty vista to a stormy grey, or bright and sunny day.
The Blockhouse is a mud brick building with great indoor and outdoor flow, with covered outdoor areas for alfresco dining all year round.
Lots and lots of space to spread out and relax.
This has to be one of the most excellent value for money places to stay, given the facilities and choice of activities.
If you are touring and want to pop up to the famous Kauri Trees, drive on the beach, walk for miles along the dunes, go surfing, fly a kite, climb the sandstone cliffs, or just picnic on the beach. Everything is on your doorstep.
The accommodation is well set up and very comfortable, with gas on demand hot water, you won't run out. massive kitchen and dining area, and very spacious bathroom, and pet friendly for well behaved dogs.
My best tip is to try and stay a few days so as to get the most from this very special retreat, and surrounds.
A beautiful country setting, very comfortable and warm. Loved the kitchen and bathroom amenities and king size bed. Christine is a pleasure to deal with and very knowledgeable about the local area, we will definitely be back to stay again.
We stayed here for a week and as artists found our stay creatively stimulating. Apart from the glorious landscape the setup of the accommodation made our art activities a breeze. The owner, Christine is an absolute delight. Couldn't recommend the whole experience more highly.
