Barrier Headquarters

Information

Beautiful two-story architecturally designed top-end fit-out cedar home located at the southern end of Medlands Beach.

Set in private native bush the place has amazing unobstructed North-facing 270 degree views over Medlands beach, bay and mountains beyond. Just a few minutes walk to spectacular Medlands beach via road or a bush track.

The main house is a two story 140 square meter structure with two bedrooms down stairs surrounded by native bush. Able to sleep a maximum of 5 the bedrooms are made up of a master with a double bed and one single including an en-suite. The second bedroom has a double bed with wardrobe and a bathroom located across the hallway. Upstairs is the main open-plan lounge and kitchen offering superb sea views.
The kitchen has a large fridge freezer with gas stove and hobs.

Pedestrian access via foot bridge (from camp ground) across stream and then an eight minute walk to the house. Vehicle access to all houses requires crossing of this Oruawharo tidal stream at low tide!!! A 4WD vehicle is required, but what I include is a 4×4 Toyota Hilux on opposite side of foot bridge to be used free of change (exclusively on this side only) during your entire stay for transporting passengers and luggage to the house. There’s a meet and greet at the food bridge to exchange car keys and unlock the house.

World class surfing, fishing and diving on the door step.
The southern end of Medlands beach is suitable for boat launching.

Also available is a 40 square meter studio dwelling with one double bed and two singles with en-suite that increases your guest capacity to a total of eight for an extra $250/night flat rate. Please note that these listed rates are for the main house only, the photos are clearly labeled main house and studio, the studio is $250 extra for larger groups for the entire complex. The entire complex is eco friendly with drinkable rain catchment water and solar panels providing all electrical power.

All meals are self-catered therefore if you want specialty items it is suggested you bring these with you to the island although there are shops and cafes located at Claris, Tryphena and Port Fitzroy if you have your own transport.
