About this Holiday House

Come experience a piece of paradise. Tumu Toka Retreat is a brand new, spacious beach front house , with 2 queen size bedrooms (sleeping 4 max), open plan living with great indoor/outdoor flow onto a covered alfresco area and a sloping lawn down to the private access onto the beautiful big sweeping 4km beach of Porpoise bay. It has stunning 180 degree views of the beach, bay and beyond. With under floor heating, electric fire & double glazing it is warm enough to relax, re-energise and recharge the soul on the coldest of days or open up the doors wide to allow the indoors to join with the outdoors on sunny days.. You can rise early to catch a stunning sunrise, watch the dolphins & surfers from the breakfast table, and take in the views from the comfort of the living room, lounge or deck chairs as you wish. At night you can hear the lively conversations of the little blue penguins. This is a very warm sunny house suitable for a romantic night for 2 people or 2 couples in a very special part of New Zealand.

We loved this house and the location. We spent 2 nights there, but wished we could have stayed longer. It is spacious, comfortable and warm. We would like to stay there again sometime.
If you are looking for a touch of luxury in the wilds of the Catlins at Curio Bay, to recharge your batteries, reflecting on your good fortune at being able to enjoy nature at it's best, then "This is the Place!" We felt very priviledged that the owners Rex & Barbara have made their wonderful beach house available for us to enjoy, we felt Very Welcome!!! and Right at Home! A brand new, modern, beautifully decorated beach house in keeping with the beach vibe, offering all modern appliances and spotlessly clean. Add this to the amazing scenery and wild life right on your door step, from the front lawn right onto the sandy beach to watch the Hector Dolphins surfing in the waves and for long walks and swims on the pristine, safe beach, at Curio, Porpoise Bay. Also, if you are lucky enough you might spot yellow eyed penguins returning to their nests on dusk to feed their young. Thank you for your hospitality and a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back. Roddy and Ange Cromwell N.Z.
