Special Amenities

Great Barrier has limited cell phone coverage and with Medland's having limited Vodafone & Spark. As we are off grid for power and water we do ask that you are mindful of your usage. For this reason we ask that you do not bring or use toasters, electric kettles, hair straighteners, sandwich makers or other high use electric appliances. Please ask if you have any concerns.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

Swim, walk or play on the white sand beach just over the dunes, or bring your boat and car and fish from either side of the island. As Medland's Beach is a sand launch a 4x4 vehicle is required. There are small shops, cafes and restaurants on the Barrier but these are not situated in the Medland Valley. Claris is a 5km, 10 minute drive and Tryphena a 8 km, 15 minute drive away.

A lovely home which was well equipped and very clean located close to a beautiful swimming beach. There is also a lovely outdoor BBQ area and garden. Hosts were great and very accommodating. Would highly recommend this house for a family holiday

The perfect house for a break on Great Barrier Island. The house was beautiful, comfortable and squeaky clean. It was such a pleasure to come home after a long day out and about. I loved how well the kitchen was equipped, there was everything for baking and cooking proper meals so we didn't have to survive on pasta; even some tin foil and tupperwares to take food on the move. Last but not least, the location was absolutely perfect: super quiet, a stone throw from a breathtaking beach and quick access to the whole island. Thanks again for having us!
