What we will do

Day 1

Arrive in the afternoon / evening

Settle into in one of the 3 guest rooms in our home. All of our guest rooms are doubles, and one of them is  furnished with a double bunk bed for those singles that don't mind sharing a room.  Our home is a perfect place to sit on the deck and enjoy the views of the sparking water and sand dunes, walk across the road and dip your toes right into the harbour! If you have the inclination take one of our complimentary bicycles and explore the local townships of Opononi and Omapere. Enjoy a delicious home cooked meal and relax with Lenny and Antoinette (more often than not the guitar is whipped out!) or wander down to the local pub for a drink

Day 2 – Adventure time

Following breakfast, we head off on our Weekend Warrior Jetski Safari which combines all the best bits of the Harbour Explorer and Kaimoana safaris. Enjoy lunch at the beautiful Boatshed Café in Rawene.  As part of this safari you get to gather your own seafood without putting your head under…or you can watch Lenny do it for you!   You are out and about on the jetskis for about 4 hours.   In the evening an entrée using the fresh kaimoana (how much fresher could it be??!!) and a yummy home cooked dinner. 

Day 3 – Explore a little longer

After breakfast take your pick of a 3 hour activity – coastal walk to Arai Te Uru, land based fishing or kayak to the sand hills for some sand boarding.  All these activities are self-guided but we set you up with the equipment

Hi I’m Leonard Naera. I was born and bred in Auckland however my whanau has lived in the Hokianga for hundreds of years. In 2017, my wife Antoinette, and I chose to leave the city and move to the Hokianga. Not too sure of what to do, our love of people has brought us to the tourism industry. We have a history of being the “hub” of our family and friends. Whenever there was a gathering organised it would normally take place at our home. We welcome the opportunity to share our stories with you and also hear of some of your stories.   Lots of our stories are “our stories” that have been passed down from generation to generation and not found in history books nor taught at school.  We are passionate about our home and our beautiful area and we relish in the chance to share the awesome history with all our manuhiri that take the break and come here to see what the sensational west coast as to offer… so you will arrive as visitors and leave as whanau.
