The Huts eco accomodation in Northland, New Zealand

When it came time to roadtest our new surfboard range, the first place that came to my mind was The Huts - a sanctuary on a hill in Ahipara, New Zealand, best described by owner and longtime friend & muse of Salt Gypsy, Kelly:

"A collection of structures through considered design, offer both community, and privacy and intimacy. Specific points of entry gently introduce visitors to the expansive views over Shipwreck Bay, up 90 Mile beach, as far as the eye can see.

 

As the buildings naturally anchor into the land, you too find yourself easily settling in. Feeling the warm sea breeze, the smell of sunshine and salt, the simplistic huts allow you a more elemental experience.

 

The slower pace lends itself to enjoying the pleasures of local produce, well made coffee in handmade ceramics, natural beds, luxurious linen and beautiful showers."

I mean, seriously, with wordporn like that how can you not want to visit?! I cannot gush enough over this beautiful family who open their Huts and hearts to all guests, extended whanau and friends, and local community. There's a beersies' deck that doubles as an outdoor bath spot and yoga platform, plantings, vege garden, and one of New Zealand's most renowned beaches right on their doorstep.

Whether you're chasing a full blown surf mission or a quiet weekend retreat - or both - Kelly, her husband, Adam, and parents, Leah & Mike, have a wealth of local knowledge to guide you

We’re growing food to get those kai kilometers down. We’re wanting to generate our own energy, and closing those loops to be as efficient as possible. We’re both there when our kids wake up, go to sleep, and for as much in between as possible. We’re trying to regenerate, because the world needs more than just to sustain. We’re going surfing because everybody needs to have fun and rejoice!  And because we like people and everyone needs an income - and this piece of land happens to sit on a hill, in a bay of the west coast in the Far North, with 90 Mile Beach stretching as far as the eye can see, and with one of the world's best waves at its feet - we’ve created a space for you to come enjoy it too.
