The Cliff House

Cliff House is Spacious and Family Friendly

When you enter the Cliff House you will definitely be blown away by the view! From almost every room in this spacious and family-friendly home, you will enjoy ocean views. The house has two wings making it a perfect place for larger groups. You can see the Poor Knight Islands in the distance and the Tutukaka headland if you’re looking North.

Take a bottle of wine and try out the European pastime of petanque. Game rules provided so you can learn as you play. Wander around the extensive grounds and mown pathways of this private estate, while taking in several stunning viewpoints. The Loop walkway is approximately 2 km and takes you through native forest. There’s also a great swing in the old Pohutukawa tree below the house. You get an amazing view from this swing!

The house itself is perfect for a family holiday with the two ends of the house separated by the living and kitchen areas. The large deck at the front of the house invites for long relaxing evenings taking in the expansive views.

The Cliff House lends itself perfectly as anything from a wonderful location for two to a gathering place for large family reunions or groups of friends. There are large areas of both indoor and outdoor dining.

Catering available, please view options here.
