The beach house is separated into two levels, the “living pavilion” consisting of a kitchen, lounge, and two covered decks. As you can see, each of the sections can be customized to your preferred level of openness and airiness. Its beachside location gives a stunning view of the water and the loveliest ocean breeze. Yet, the home is also built right into the hillside, connecting its visitors with nature and providing a spectacular view.

The interior is gracefully designed, featuring stained wood and plenty of windows. Its spacious kitchen is perfect for dinner parties and delightful summer nights. If anyone needed an extra reason to book a trip to New Zealand, the Castle Rock Beach House is calling your name.
