Catering between 2 - 4 guests at any one time, the intimate location is ideal for a special romantic getaway for couples' tramping double dates, or an outdoor adventure with friends. Perced at 1,300ft above sea level, Fern Ridge is one of the highest properties in Northland, New Zealand; the height of the vantage point means the property opens up to views of Ninety Mile Beach, Mount Camel, and North Cape. The accommodation's treetop location is also quite literally the epitome of natural living. Fully self-sufficient, Fern Ridge Hideaway is environmentally friendly, utilising off-the-grid power generated by hydro-electricity from an on-site waterfall. As soon as you walk through the doors, you will be surrounded by a magnificent holiday home constructed entirely out of Redwood. From the ceilings to the kitchen fittings, everything is nature-inspired. The owners' made a conscious decision for the property to complement the natural vistas, bringing the outside in. The log house blends modern design with the pleasant ambience of quality New Zealand wood. The final result is luxurious and fresh. A wrought iron gate and the 1km-long driveway prevents unwanted visitors from disturbing your perfect retreat. Sunsets at Fern Ridge are quite simply breath-taking - the sky bursts into a palette of orange, pink, violet, and coral a the sun gradually dips behind the horizon. As the evening closes and you're relaxing in the bathtub with a glass of red, you may spot glow worms flickering among the foliage, or hear the kiwi bird calling. Find out for yourself why the setting was love at first sight for hosts John and Erin.More
