An experience like no other produces best weekend, ever.

Talk about allure. Its a genuine one with blue stone walls, thick macrocarpa oak beams and dark iron chandeliers that impart rustic elegance. We nab a seat within the glass conservatory for views that stretch across the rolling greens of the golf course. Later that evening we tucked into ‘the tidal rock pool’- seaweed, scallops, oysters and clams in Dashi broth and then savoured the wild venison with carrots, nasturtiums and Horopito jus. Our wines were perfect, coming from this area, NZ’s oldest winemaking region.
The rolling hills unfold into the Pacific Ocean with an option of two beaches for frolicking . We took a golf cart to the 14th hole, then hiked through the native bush to Waiaue Beach a stretch of sand fringing the clear waters that house small islands.
My preference is to cycle in preference to golfing, heading towards the pebbled Pink Beach with its gravel-coated tracks ensuring a workout. Its great for a spot of fishing and barbecues.

The interior decor is on point - wood panelled walls coffered ceilings and large fireplaces adorned with vases crowned with daisies. The wraparound verandah offers views over the golf course. Only as a guest are you privileged to access the property’s native bush untouched for decades. We stand at the base of a Kauri tree that’s 700-900 years old, a tree that has witnessed the arrival of the Maori , white settlers and now wide-eyed us tourists taking in the beauty reverentially.

Service and food Top of the Class
