The Glasshouse

The Glasshouse at Kauri Mountain Point Estate

The Glasshouse offers an incredible “wow” factor with this very special location. The house is set among ancient Pohutukawa trees at the end of a private peninsula. This is as close as you can get to being on an island. 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 opens to allow you to shower in nature. Furthermore, the bathroom also has incredible views of the Pacific Ocean.

The only sound you will hear is the gannets patrolling the headland. Or the muffled sound of breaking waves that filters up through the trees.  Distant islands dot the horizon, breathe deep and dream away…. As a result, this is truly a bespoke getaway that lives up to delivering an unforgettable experience in Northland.

Swim in our salt-water reticulated rockpool or dive into the sheltered cove for a refreshing dip when conditions are right. Beanbags are waiting for you by the water’s edge.

If you are traveling with a larger group of family or friends you can furthermore incorporate ‘Te Whara’.  This facility is the larger residence on the property.  The Glasshouse including the main dwelling ‘Te Whara’ offers exclusively the entire Kauri Mountain Point gated peninsula.

Kauri Mountain Point becomes your own private, secure peninsula hideaway. Helicopter access and bespoke services available. Luxury bespoke accommodation for up to 7 people.

Catering available, please view options here.
