Our seaside retreat aka "The Sleep-out" is perfect for those wanting a quiet and relaxing place to stay. It is located 2 hours from Auckland, 1hr 30min from Tauranga and is 10mins from Whangamata where shopping, cafes and restaurants can be found.
NOTE: There is no shops or restaurants in Opoutere
Our quiet location overlooks the beautiful Opoutere estuary, where you can watch the sunset from your private deck. Tuis, Bellbird and Woodpidgeons flourish in the surrounding bush, while a short walk will take you to the main surf beach for a swim, the bird sanctuary to watch the Dotterel nesting or to fish off the local wharf. Maybe canoeing is more your style... we have one available for your use.
Zugang für Gäste
Access is up several steps to the side of the main house (not wheelchair friendly or easily accessed by elderly) where the semi self contained sleep out is located.
NOTE: There is a kitchenette (see photos) and although there is a toaster and hot water jug for coffee/tea, there is NO cooking facility, ie. oven, stove top or microwave. Plates, mugs, knives and forks are provided for already prepared food. I am happy for you to use the house kitchen at any time.
Interaktion mit Gästen
As we are both retired it won't take long to locate us in the garden or completing a project, however, we are happy to respect your privacy and will only 'appear' when called for.

We would appreciate it if our guest did not smoke in the unit, or have visitors (we live in a cul de sac and parking is limited).
I am semi retired small business owner ( child care) who enjoys gardening, walks, cooking, and knitting. My husband and I now enjoy our peaceful surroundings with the family cat, Tilly, after spending many years bringing up four boys in the busy city of Auckland. All four sons now live overseas and although we originally built the for their comfort, it seems a good idea to share it with others. We have always enjoyed meeting new people and love sharing our home and lifestyle with them. We would love to meet you.
