Looking for a very special location for your honeymoon, or just for a weekend away with your loved one or just you? This truly excellent apartment provides the kind of sweeping panoramic views over the Hauraki Gulf only billionaires dream of in the rest of the world... and the seclusion and peace and quiet you have been craving for so long. It is a self contained apartment, attached to a comfortable eco house which is mainly run on solar power, wind power and wood. For summer it even has a swimming pool overlooking the water.

House and apartment were finished in 2010 and have extra wide views from the Coromandel to the Whangarei Heads, and are situated in a very remote location only shared with your hosts. You will need a 4WD vehicle for access. Bring your own or ask about vehicle hire.

When you walk into your lounge, an expansive view...

The X-spot is off the beaten track in many ways. It is a long drive to get there, you should have a 4WD, but we had no trouble finding the place or driving the inclines with a Toyota RAV. But the isolation and breathtaking views are just what make this place one of a kind. We travelled New Zealand for... more

Management response:

Thanks very much for your kind words. You were our first guests from Scandinavia, and Roger and I both really enjoyed having you stay. I do appreciate you comment about the curtains, but many of our guests love being able to see a star-filled night from the comfort of their bed. I promise we'll think about that one for your... more

X Spot was truly one of the most amazing places we have stayed. We spent our honeymoon there and had an amazing 10 days. The location is so beautiful, you feel like you've totally escaped, we left feeling absolutely relaxed and recharged. The property has everything you could possibly need to be comfortable. Couldn't recommend staying here more. more

This accommodation is all about breathtaking view, serenity and rejuvenating. The hosts 'Hilde and Roger' are very friendly and helpful and made us feel home from the moment we entered the apartment. If you sit on the couch in the lounge facing nothing but beautiful sea all around you won't feel like getting up and do anything else. The kitchen... more
