Introducing: Moonlit Knights to the Bachcare Luxury Collection

Back to Blog

Boasting brilliant 180 degree views of Tutukaka Harbour out to the Poor Knights, this luxury retreat promises an unforgettable escape! Located on the stunning Tutukaka Coast; which National Geographic has placed in the top three coastal destinations in the world. This Tutukaka holiday house couldn’t enjoy a better location – introducing Moonlit Knights to the Bachcare Luxury Collection!

Originally a 1970’s house that had a fabulous outlook and aspect but needed to be renovated, the owners took the project on; tailoring the renovations to their taste, as well as maximising the postcard perfect views. This now luxury Tutukaka holiday house is exceptionally well appointed; including 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a solar heated swimming pool, indoor and outdoor gas fire places, and excellent outdoor deck areas to soak up that vista. The entire home is designed to be the perfect space to chill out and luxuriate on site. The deck cantilevers out above a sheer drop off to the bay below, adding to the dramatic landscape and creating an excellent spot for al fresco seaside dinners. Custom designed Bisazza tiles over the infinity edge of the pool finish the outdoor space off expertly, providing a delightful respite to cool off on hot summer days. There is also an outdoor gas fireplace both inside and outside. We recommend curling up in front of the outdoor fire with a glass of wine, and catching an epic sunset!

The master bedroom will take your breath away as you gaze outwards towards the Poor Knights islands and endless azure sea! Make the most of the private deck and enter a blissful state as you hear the waves crashing against the coastline below. A free standing bath tub complete with unobscured views in the ensuite, guarantees the ultimate relaxation and the perfect romantic retreat. Beautifully designed open plan living ensures an excellent indoor / outdoor flow, with floor to ceiling sliding doors to showcase the view, and keep the house cool during hot summers. Designed for entertaining; there is a beautiful designer kitchen, as well as the option to dine both inside or out. The sheltered outside dining area is located next to an exterior gas fireplace to keep you toasty! Or dine inside whilst still enjoying views of the bay. The entertainment system includes a Hi Fi system both inside and out, to complete the ambience!

Opportunities abound for adventures if you’re feeling energetic. Matapouri was voted one of New Zealand’s Top 10 Beaches by the NZ Herald recently, and is one of many spectacular beaches in the area reached within a 10 minute drive from your luxury Tutukaka holiday home. A 15-20 minute bush walk over the hill at the end of Matapouri beach is rewarded with a natural rock pool perched right down on the oceans edge – known as the mermaid pool. The walk to the Tutukaka light house takes you through native bush and across beaches located on the Tutukaka headland – a beautiful track to conquer! A local tennis court, golf course, as well as excellent fishing in the area round off the energetic pursuits. After a hard day of beaching, swimming, and walking – treat yourself to an ice cream or takeaway meal from the ever popular ‘The Dairy’. Moonlit Knights and the surrounding area are sure to surprise and delight you and your group, and promise an unforgettable holiday!
