Tangaroa Retreat is a comfortable and stylish family beach house boasting jaw-dropping views over Te-Uenga Bay. Set in two acres of native bush with a private track to the secluded beach below, this is the ultimate place to recharge your batteries in paradise.

Wake up slowly at Tangaroa Retreat, sipping your morning coffee in bed while watching the boats cruise across the harbour through the wall-to-wall window. Talk about a million dollar view!

With the whole day ahead of you, the options are endless. Tangaroa Retreat has three kayaks available - head out for a morning paddle before firing up the BBQ for a classic Kiwi big breakfast on the deck.

If you've brought the boat, there's mooring available at Te-Uenga Bay to spend the day on the water exploring the bays and fishing. Elliot's Bay surf beach is just 5-minutes drive away, and Russell a 25-minute drive for a day trip.

Even better, spend the day in total holiday mode at Tangaroa Retreat, sunbathing on the deck with a good book or swimming at the private beach.

As dusk approaches, make homemade pizzas in the outdoor oven to take down the track to the beach for a picnic. Watching the sun set here with your group is absolute bliss. End the day with a soak in the spa pool gazing up at the stars. Once discovered, you'll never want to leave your very own slice of paradise.

Magical memories await at Tangaroa Retreat!

Stayed December 2019

Loved our stay, private and relaxing with so much to explore and do! A wonderful view. Great layout with the bedrooms where they are, so everyone was able to have a nice peaceful sleep. We loved taking the kayaks out.

Stayed August 2019

The view was great, the house was relatively clean, but there was no water in the house.
