My place is good for couples and sole adventurers. It's walking distance to the sea and native bush. 15 minutes drive to Whakatane. I am a creator of art, so my house reflects that. I'm Ngati Rangitihi from the local iwi (tribe). I live in a very peaceful spot, lots of bird life and I am into gardening organically and recycling, being kaitiaki (guardian).

Bernie is an awesome lady, and her place is abundant with cool artworks and peaceful vibes. We loved the cats and the dog, and hanging out with Bernie and her other guests by the fire at night. Lots of fun!

This is a very unusual place, lot‘s of art everywhere and Bernie is a very warm and welcoming host. Loved the cats and the dog and took a stroll down to the beach, a perfect getaway!

What a wonderful human Bernie is and what a beautiful space to relax. Communication was top notch, as were the views and the small touches that made this place a true gem.
