Wilderness & Ecotourism

The hectare site is managed on organic principles and is off-grid. We only use natural fertilisers and no commercial pesticides.
All timber was sourced from sustainably managed forests. Much of this was grown and milled in Northland. All wood used internally, including framing, is untreated in order to avoid the off-gassing associated with treated wood.
Two to three coats of ‘eco-oil’ from Natural House has been applied to all internal surfaces.
All paint used is low-VOC paint from Resene.
In order to reduce waste, off-cuts of untreated timber were used in our wood-burning stove to both heat our home and also frequently for cooking.
Shelving and cabinetry is almost entirely made from left-over and recycled wood.
We have used insulation with a far higher rating than required by the building code in order to minimise heating in winter.
All windows are double-glazed.
The house faces Northwest to maximise passive solar heating. The walls on the north side of the house are almost entirely glass, while the window area on the south side of the house is minimal, in order to best enhance this passive solar aspect.
Our builders and associated sub-contractors were Northland based in order to minimise road miles.

I left Kokohuia Lodge inspired.
This completely off grid, supremely beautiful accommodation is pleasing in every way.  The outlook, a vista of sea, sky and an everchanging pattern of sandhills is breathtaking. The interior of the lodge is ingenious in it's use of space and each adornment is thoroughly thought through and fits with the ethos of the property.
The lodge design combines the vision of both the owners and an architect inspired by a leaf lying gently on the ground, resting harmoniously in its environment. Sustainable construction was of highest priority.
The property is run on organic principles with locally sourced produce featuring in the cuisine.  Breakfast is provided in the lodge and an evening meal may be requested, a glorious new woodfired pizza oven (shaped like a garlic bulb) offers guests another dining experience.
This is an elegant, private romantic retreat, relaxation is guaranteed.

From Auckland: Head north up State Highway 1 until you get to the Brynderwyns ( 1 1/4 hours drive north of Auckland approximately) where you make a left turn onto State Highway 12 towards Dargaville. Drive through Dargaville and out the other side. Take a right hand turn when you see a signpost that says Opononi and Ohaeawai. If you keep on this road, you’ll pass through the Waipoua Forest (where Tane Mahuta, the famous tree is) and you will eventually get to the Hokianga Harbour. The first town is Omapere. Drive along the main road through Omapere, past the Copthorne Hotel (on the left) and past the G.A.S. petrol station (on the left). Carry on for a short distance and you’ll see the Volunteer Fire Station (on the right). The next turn-off to the right is our road – Kokohuia Road. We’re a fraction over 1km up Kokohuia Road on the left. Drive past our house, which has a phoenix palm and the number ‘101’ at the gate. The parking deck for Kokohuia Lodge is 50m past this on the left. Driving time is around 3 1/4 hours.
