The Glasshouse

The Glasshouse at Kauri Mountain Point Estate

The Glasshouse offers an incredible “wow” factor with this very special location. Set among ancient Pohutukawa trees at the end of a private peninsula, this is probably as close as one can get to being on an island, while still on the mainland. Relax in the hammock between the old Pohutukawa trees and it seems like ‘that’ other world simply does not exist.

Glass, steel and timber have come together to create a full designer kitchen and state of the art architectural bathroom. A large electric glass slider can be opened to allow you to shower in nature with incredible views to the Pacific Ocean.

The Glasshouse is an iconic Kiwi destination for its architecture and incredible natural beauty of its land.

Gannets patrol the headland while the muffled sound of another breaking wave filters up through the trees.  Distant islands dot the horizon, breathe deep and dream away…. This is a truly bespoke getaway that lives up to delivering an unforgettable experience in Northland.
