Bright, cosy, and enjoying a private and tranquil setting on 12 acres of bush clad land, this idyllic island retreat offers a sauna for relaxation and is only 700m from the water. Welcome to Frosty's Retreat on Great Barrier Island!

With a gorgeous outlook of the surrounding native bush, you’ll switch into holiday mode instantly on the sunlit deck. Plenty of seating options ensure you’ll have the perfect spot to enjoy an alfresco meal and your favourite evening tipple, while the lush, flat lawn offers up the space for a friendly game of backyard footy or cricket.

Inside this stunning four-bedroom home you’ll find a spacious, open-plan living area fit for the whole family. Furnished with comfort in mind, you'll have no trouble finding a spot to settle in for a movie night, with the fireplace bringing toasty ambience on those mid-year getaways.

The fully equipped kitchen offers everything you need to self-cater your stay, including a Stanley wood stove, and you'll find the Stonewall Store just a five-minute drive away to stock up on supplies. If you'd prefer a meal out, the Currach Irish Pub and Pa Beach Cafe are also only a short distance from this Great Barrier Island accommodation. Later, retreat to the bedrooms for a peaceful night's rest; the master bedroom even offering its own private balcony.

This Great Barrier Island accommodation is only a 14-minute drive from the Tryphena Wharf, the docking point of the Sealink Ferry to and from Auckland.

There are also plenty of other activities to get stuck into during your time on the Island. Take the available kayaks down to the water for a paddle, bring the snorkelling gear and check out the local marine life, or take the 12-minute drive to Medlands Beach for a day by the seaside.

Experience ultimate serenity from the outside world, here at Frosty's Retreat!

Special Conditions

This property has unfenced access to a large expanse of bush nearby, and there is a stream with small rock pools down a steep track from the house. It is essential that guests take personal responsibility for the safety of their group in and around these areas.

As there is a section of the deck without a barrier with a small drop on to grass, all guests should take care when using this area due to the risk of falls.
