Whananaki Barn is on 15 acres of lifestyle block overlooking the sea. It is totally OFF GRID so if you love peace and tranquility this is the place for you! It has great views of both the native bush and the beach. You’ll love my place because of the beauty, the outdoors space, the sunrise and sunsets and it is off-grid!. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), big groups, and pets.

The space
If you are looking for a genuine "Kiwi Camping Experience", then come stay at Whananaki Barn!

We are located 3 minutes from beautiful Rockell Bay on 15 acres of beautiful farmland! In addition to rolling pastures, we have a small Olive orchard with approximately 35 trees.

We have fresh rainwater stored in our tank and a large compositing toilet. Bring your torch and candles as we do not have any electricity (so you can really experience the NZ outdoors!)

Please note: We have recently renovated this cabin. It is freshly painted and decorated and has a great double mattress! It is a great place for camping without the need for a tent, mattress or any of the hardships!!

Guest access
The guests will stay in a one room cabin on the property.

There are a total of 3 x Cabins available. (The others are listed separately.)

There may be other guests staying in one of the other cabins at the same time so common courtesy and respect is required.

There is plenty of room outdoors for extra guests that would prefer to sleep in a tent as well!

We have a large barn (Whananaki Barn) on the property. This is where we live when at the property. It is not available as part of the cabin use, but we always love to visit with guests when we are at the property!

We have a great compositing toilet for you to use. It is next the barn.

We have a solar shower that is really warm in hot sunny days! No good at night or when it has been raining. You will be clean but a bit cold! It is near the barn and you are free to use this.

All the water is collected from rainwater on the Barn's roof! It is perfect and clean to drink. There is a water tap near the barn and solar shower.

Other things to note
Please be aware that the gravel driveway is quite steep. With so much rain during the winter, the driveway can get a bit torn up at times. Most cars are fine However, some vehicle that are front wheel drive may struggle at times.

Not suitable for towing caravans or boats without a 4 wheel drive.

The grass paddock in front of the cabins gets quite soft during the winter months. You vehicle may get stuck! We would prefer during this period if you parking on the main driveway and walked the short distance to the cabins.

Please contact us to discuss if required.

We are near the end of the gravel road and have very few neighbors! The area is very quiet, and a great place to see the stars at night!

We have a family friendly environment and do not welcome loud parties or excessive alcohol use.

There is a total fire ban every summer period.
