IslandStay is a family owned and run accommodation facility in the Okiwi Valley/Whangapoua Basin, NE Great Barrier Island. They are centrally located in the north, on the east of the divide, close to the ocean beach and tidal estuary, near popular mountain and coastal trails yet easily accessible from the main bus route and not far from the Okiwi Airstrip.
They offer accommodation in two separate self-contained structures for up to 18 people. IslandStay is privately situated on an 11 acre site close by the meandering Okiwi Stream and old growth native trees.
