If you are looking for accommodation, we have an upstairs apartment with beach access, beautiful garden and hot outdoor shower. Warm, spacious and stunning views from inside and a deck that overlooks the beach. There are two generous bedrooms, a large lounge with a very comfortable leather bed settee, separate bathroom and toilet. An efficient kitchenette gives you a jug, toaster, microwave, convection oven, hobs and washing machine. Our style is friendly, relaxed, and welcoming.
The apartment would be ideal for a small wedding party where the ceremony is held on the beach, in the garden or in the house if it is wet (by arrangement). It can sleep 6 quite comfortably and you could even have your evening meal up there (if you were no more than 10). Our path which is set in lovely garden weaves down to the camping grounds and onto the beach. We are a 10 minute drive south from New Plymouth.
Garden $500.00 plus cost of the ceremony (ceremony only, not available for reception)
Upstairs apartment $150.00 a night for 2 guests, $45.00 for each additional guest. Up to 7 guests can be accommodated. If you require use of the downstairs kitchen and dining room this can be made available to you on request and at extra charge.
Whether or not you are using our venue for your ceremony and I am your celebrant, you are welcome to book the accommodation to prepare for the big day. This is particularly useful if your ceremony and wedding breakfast are in Oakura. There are so many wedding venues available in the area, enquire for further details and suggestions.
Our spacious upstairs apartment is ideal for the bride and bridesmaids to have their final night together, and enjoy the preparation on the big day. The views are relaxing and the apartment well equipped.
A late departure can be arranged so that you can have your makeup and hair done, flowers delivered and have friends pop in along with the photographer, videographer, mother of the bride etc. Leave from here in your bridal car.
Costs may vary slightly according to your requirements they are very reasonable and can be tailor made for you. You can leave the apartment as it was or you can pay for the clean-up. You can book it the night before or just for the day. We are very flexible. You are also very welcome to use the grounds and property for photographs. Here is what some happy bridal groups had to say, staying the night before with an arranged late check out the next day.
