This fascinating house was started over 25 years ago by some of the original ‘Hippies’ in Golden Bay and has recently been restored and skillfully completed. It's a funky and fun design with all rooms on different levels. The house is perfectly oriented towards the sun and views.

The cosy feeling of the wooden interior with indoor/outdoor living and stunning sea and mountain views make it hard to leave this place. You can watch the ever-changing moods of the sea from the lounge, enjoy the sunsets from the large deck or soak in the outdoor tub under millions of stars.

This home is great for family holidays as there is space for everyone.

Nice house. A bit out dated. Outdoor bath was shabby. No keys to the property. Beautiful views from the deck!
