SO14 is located on a private inlet where arriving feels like a warm embrace, a deep breath, a loving smile. Offering the best of both worlds – complete privacy afforded by its remote location, combined with easy road access – SO14 is just 15 minutes’ drive from Kerikeri airport, which is just a 50-minute flight from Auckland International Airport.
Landing at the property by private helicopter or seaplane offers an even better opportunity to take in the awe-inspiring archipelago from the air. The private jetty means you can also arrive and explore by boat – with 150 islands to discover, excellent fishing and incredible dolphin watching.
SO14 embraces the glamour of a New England lodge, combined with true kiwi beachside escapism. Hop on a stand-up-paddleboard, into a kayak, or simply relax on your own private beach with a gin and tonic and watch the yachts come and go.
With space to sleep 14 across six en-suite bedrooms, this home is perfect if you want to accommodate a multi-generational family or more than one group of friends under one roof. There may only be one roof, but this private residence offers more than one private beach – you have three to choose from, as well as the swimming pool overlooking the water, space to land a helicopter and your own private jetty.
A stay at SO14 comes fully inclusive with a chef-cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner. Hosts Lucy and Alexis are on hand to help throughout your stay. Whether it is the best place to enjoy your morning coffee, or the top islands on the eastern shores to take in the Bay of Islands’ iconic history – they will have the answer.
