The ultimate nature lover's paradise~ The beautiful hillside home and tree-top suite is nestled on over 20 acres of private and pristine native bush bordering Kahurangi National Park. This luxurious and family friendly hide-away lies between the wild beauty of Wharariki Beach, Cape Farewell and the spit to the North, and the charming Whanganui  Inlet, Kaihoka Lakes and Collingwood to the south.

The name 'Karu ō te Kiwi' translates to 'Eye of the Kiwi' in Te Reo Maori- The Spit forms the ‘birds eye view’ of Golden Bay into the shape of New Zealand’s very own national bird - the kiwi. Enjoy a 10 minute walk down the drive to the beach.

The views encompass the sweeping arch of Farewell Spit, the bright blue waters of Tasman Bay and the tree clad hills. Enjoy the private walking tracks throughout the property, encounter the birdlife, explore the astounding natural beauty of Golden Bay, take your bike for a ride, fossic for gold or simply sit by the fire and relax.

Just to top things off, enjoy a complimentary basket of local goodies on arrival.
