This quaint, cosy former shearers quarters is a short walking distance from one of NZs best surfing beaches; Hickory Bay. You'll be staying on a working farm- nestled amongst trees and native bush, with an elevated view of the pastures and coastal cliffs eastward.

Before its renovation, The Cabin was used to accommodate the many shearing gangs that worked at Hickory Bay over the years. Walking into The Cabin you'll feel like you're instantly on holiday, which is kinda what it's all about, right?
