Te Kahu

Te Kahu – A stylish open space.

When arriving at Te Kahu, you are greeted with a spectacular coastal vista! In the distance, you can see the Poor Knight Islands floating on the horizon and the Tutukaka headland vying for attention to the North………..the blue South Pacific, a sparkling jewel.

Te Kahu lends itself perfectly as a retreat for 2 or a place to enjoy with friends and family. There are large areas for both indoor and outdoor dining. A large Chef’s kitchen is at the heart of the west wing. It is the perfect house for a group of friends enjoying time away.

The three-bedroom home is open plan with contemporary design and furnishings. Three different deck areas, as well as a BBQ, offer a great setting for creating some great memories. The large chef’s kitchen makes for great entertaining if you are a group of friends staying. The accommodation part of the house is in the east wing while the kitchen, living, and dining areas are in the western end.

Whangarei Heads feature jagged exotic peaks, covered in a lush subtropical forest. Furthermore, deserted white sand beaches stretch into the distance. Clear clean waters of the Pacific are all hallmarks of the area.

Catering is available, please view options here.

Guest review:

“My husband and I stayed in Te Kahu for the weekend. We had been to many very nice holiday accommodations, Te Kahu is definitely one of the best. The view is magnificent and the place is very private and extremely quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.”
