About this Holiday House

Te Hapu is remote and private, it starts where the road ends. This is unique New Zealand holiday accommodation. Miles of spectacular private access coast and 1000 acre farm set amongst stunning limestone landscape, yours to explore. Our Shearing Shed Retreat is situated by itself on our property at the head of a valley and looks out over farmland and native rainforest to limestone bluffs on the skyline. Take the fishing rod for a short walk/drive down the valley (5-10 minutes) to a beautiful sandy beach. The retreat is cosy, comfortable and clean. It has a spacious, open plan, fully equipped, living and kitchen area, an excellent wood range for cooking, heating and hot water, plus gas for cooking, a gas fridge and solar lighting. It has a separate bedroom and bathroom and a huge old fashioned outdoor bath. Extended farm and coastal walks (directions provided) offer panoramic views of the Tasman Sea and Westhaven Inlet. Sandy beaches, luxuriant low tide rock shelf, pancake rocks, swimming, boogie boarding, fishing, snorkelling, rock climbing and caves. Watch the surf, look out for whales, seals and birdlife. Breakfast or barbeque on the veranda while watching the light change in the bluffs. Plan your next vacation in Golden Bay. See other listings for 3 accommodation options.

This is the 5th time we have stayed at Te Hapu, the 3rd time here at the Shearing Shed Retreat. This place never ceases to amaze us with its beauty, peacefulness and privacy. There is so much to see and do but this time we just chilled and relaxed. For lovers of the outdoors or chillers who prefer to relax we highly recommend a visit here away from the hustle and bustle and mod cons of everyday life. We will definitely be back. Thanks again to the Closs family :-)

What a fantastic spot. Isolated and rugged. We swam on the beach, watched the stars. An amazing unique location that is perfect if you want to get away from it all.
