Fern Ridge is a brand-new, two-bedroom holiday home nestled deep in the tranquil native canopy of the Maungataniwha Ranges, known locally as the Mangamukas.

This range, situated in New Zealand’s Northland, is densely forested and an important reserve for both kauri trees and wildlife, offering Fern Ridge guests a bach in the secluded wilderness of, and a break from the intensity of urban living.

This luxury Kaitaia holiday home caters between 2 and 4 guests at any one time, the intimate location is ideal for a special romantic getaway, or an outdoor adventure with friends.

Perched at 1,300ft above sea level, Fern Ridge is one of the highest properties in Northland, New Zealand; the height of the vantage point means the property opens up to views of Ninety Mile Beach, Mount Camel, and North Cape.

The accommodation’s treetop location is also quite literally the epitome of natural living. Fully self-sufficient, Fern Ridge Hideaway is environmentally friendly, utilising off-the-grid power generated by hydro electricity from an on-site waterfall.

As soon as you walk through the doors, you will be surrounded by a magnificent holiday home constructed entirely out of Redwood. From the ceilings to the kitchen cabinets, everything is nature-inspired. The owners made a conscious decision for their property to complement the natural vistas, so tall windows bring the outside in. The log cabin blends modern design aesthetics with the pleasant ambience of quality New Zealand wood. The final result is luxurious and fresh. A wrought iron gate and a 1km-long driveway prevents unwanted visitors from disturbing your perfect retreat.

An Unforgettable Place....

Sunsets at Fern Ridge are quite simply breath-taking – the sky bursts into a palette of orange, pink, violet, and coral as the sun gradually dips behind the horizon. As the evening closes and you’re relaxing in the bathtub with a glass of red, you may spot glow worms flickering among the foliage, or hear the Kiwi bird calling.  Find out for yourself why the setting was love at first sight for hosts John and Erin.  View  Gallery


Stunning Views and Total Luxury - We had a great time in this piece of peaceful paradise. Very luxuriously appointed throughout, with the best outdoor bath set-up I've ever seen and views North for as far as the eye can see. The hosts are excellent - very friendly and helpful. This is a must visit.
