Welcome to The Gannet Hatch. Unwind, unplug and relax in this modern day bach nestled in an old-school kiwi town. Sit in awe of the commanding views over Aotea Harbour, Mount Karioi, Gannet Island and beyond. Explore the community, beach and harbour by foot or don't leave the house at all. Full kitchen, BBQ, two living areas, and large deck are all yours to enjoy. A peaceful, perfect and picturesque getaway for couples.

The space
Built in 2018, this 180 sqm house is equipped with all the basics you need for a getaway from the city. The walls are constructed from insulated solid concrete giving the house a grounded presence on those stormy days and stays cool on hot summer days. Attached garage for your convenience.

Two spacious bedrooms, one queen, one double. Two lounges, large tv with freeview, dvd player. Dish-drawer, washing machine.

The kitchen has a full range of pots, pans, plates, bowls, glasses, utensils etc and we provide salt, pepper and oil for guest use. The beds will be made prior to your arrival with fresh linen and bath towels are included. Please don’t take the bath towels onto the beach. Soap, shampoo, conditioner and body wash is provided in the bathrooms.

There are some fruit trees on the property, when in season guests are welcome to pick fruit that will be consumed during their stay.

There is NO WIFI in The Gannet Hatch. Put your devices down, enjoy each others company and forget about life's worries. There is cell phone and 3G/4G coverage.

We have cleaners to prepare the Gannet Hatch before each guest stay, though we do not charge an additional cleaning fee and ask that guests keep the place tidy and leave it as it was found.

Checkout is 11am.

Kawhia, Waikato, New Zealand

Aotea Harbour is your classic old-school kiwi community, laid back lifestyle. Kawhia (6km away) has a general store, fuel station, cafe, (great) fish & chips and a pub. Nearest supermarket is in Otorohanga (60km away), so worth stocking up before driving out here if planning to dine in. Raglan is 52km away (1hr, 15mins) on a scenic gravel road.
