11 The Lane Medlands Beach Great Barrier Island
Set amongst a wonderful established garden of mature Kentia and Nikau palms yet situated a 3 minute walk to the beautiful white sand surf beach of Medlands.
The Lane Cottage is the original Family holiday home and then permanent residence of the Fred Medland family. The home is well appointed with full gas oven and cook top, electric fridge/freezer , TV and 240 v power which is supplied by a 1kw solar panel system .
In summer the water is heated by solar and in cooler weather we can switch to a gas system. In those cooler months enjoy the warmth from a lovely log burner fire.
All kitchen equipment if supplied as is duvets and pillows. We would prefer that you bring your own sheets and towels to take home and launder as we rely on tank water, should you wish we do have linen available to hire at a small charge per stay.
Sit on the terrace and watch the wonderful array of native birds just meters away. Kaka, tui, fantail and wood pigeon's are constant visitors to feed in the garden.
Swim, walk or play on the white sand beach just over the dunes. Bring your boat and car and fish from either side of the island, Medlands beach is a sand launch so 4x4 vehicle is required.
There are small shops, cafes and restaurants on the Barrier but these are not situated in the Medland Valley. Claris is a 10 minute 5km drive and Tryphena a 8 km 15 minute drive away.
