The Ark is a whole lot bigger on the inside than it looks!
The Ark is nestled in our garden with amazing views of the Kaimai Ranges.
Little skylights in the roof mean star gazing is possible from the bed on a clear night.
12-volt lighting creates a cosy and romantic atmosphere.
We have extensive gardens to roam, a river to explore and lots of outdoor spaces to relax in.
A new bathroom has been added with an outside shower with views to the Kaimai ranges.
The enclosed outdoor shower with a waterless toilet is next to the cabin and overlooks the Kaimai Ranges.
Located just off State highway 2, it's handy to some of the best beaches, walks, avocado and kiwifruit orchards in the Bay of Plenty.
We grow our own organic fruit and vegetables, which are shared with guests when in season
A shared guest kitchenette/lounge is available for guest use beside the main house. A guest BBQ and fire is located nearby in the quaint summer house with seating with a lovely garden view....
