Immerse yourself in some epic Hauraki Gulf views from the comfort of the couch and use the XSPOT as a base for Great Barrier Island exploration! This spacious and light modern eco-apartment has stunningly wide views from Coromandel to the Whangarei Heads. Some guests say it feels like you are 'in the view'.
Your hosts, Hilde and Roger, built their architect-designed house in 2010-2012 with a team of local builders. It contains their living quarters and the attached but fully self contained apartment. The resulting XSPOT is a comfortable eco-house, run on solar power and fire wood. Think tiny carbon footprint. The onsite pool with a view is heated by the sun only, so more suited to use in summer, or with a wet suit.
In addition to its amazing location, you'll also have the benefit of your local hosts living on site, almost like a concierge service. 😉
Hilde and Roger will be happy to recommend the best adventures, which on the Barrier can depend on wind and weather conditions. Or tell you about their island lives and off grid living.
And while you are in the Dark Sky Sanctuary of Great Barrier Island... XSPOT has a clear view of the sky: a great location for a private Good Heavens stargazing experience, a service that is weather and availability dependent.
You'll find XSPOT in a remote 4WD location. Its solitude is perfect for a retreat, a honeymoon, a babymoon or a special long weekend away for your loved one and you!
Due to its absolute cliff top location, XSPOT is less suitable for school aged children, but great for parents with a baby or a small toddler. A portacot is available on site.
Come and enjoy our piece of paradise at XSPOT!
