Great houses on an incredible location, situated along antechamber bay. Hours were spent swimming and fishing off the private beach. Highly recommend trying some of the property's delicious South Rock Lamb too 👌🏻 10/10

Our stay at antechamber bay was amazing, the property extends along a beautiful stretch of coast land that is only accessible from their property. Upon arrival at Nats we were blown away by the views from the verandah and we spent most evenings eating dinner looking out over the amazing backdrop. There was so much to explore on the property...

We booked at Kona but was upgraded to the Nats as the previous occupier needed an extra day. And we liked the experience. Nat’s was a little too big for our family of 5 though. There was a total of 4 bedrooms but we only needed two. The large kitchen was well equipped and the views were simply amazing. Do...

Nats Cottage is nestled on a cliff top well away from all the hustle and bustle. This is the ideal place to go if you want to enjoy nature in its element. The views of the ocean are breathtaking so much that you can easily spend the day watching the boats and ships travel by. Wake to the sound of...

So much Charm in Nat's house we all loved staying here. When we arrived (from Brisbane) we walked in and Kate was stoking the fireplace, heaters were on and the electric blankets were nice and toasty. Such a warm and inviting welcome we received. We just wished we could have stayed longer as there was just so much to do....

Charming 1820's farm house well worth the stay to soak up the country vibes. Nothing like waking up to ocean views with sheep wandering the land outside your windows and then just a short walk to one of the nicest beaches on KI.

This trip was the third time back to this place. We have only ever had great experiences. Andy and Kate are friendly hosts and happy to assist with any questions/queries. Access to the beautiful beaches is easy or if you are a little more adventurous you can walk down the path which is steep in places. The roads out of...
