Welcome to the XSPOT


Come and get some solitude at the XSPOT!

The XSPOT is an off-the-grid cliff top holiday apartment that provides modern accommodation for two. A spacious, light and passive solar apartment with plenty of room for you to relax, away from every day distractions.

The apartment has a well equipped open plan kitchen but our guests claim that its best feature are the fantastic close-up views over the Hauraki Gulf. The waves are breaking just 100 meters below... There are wide sunset views and starry nights in this Dark Sky Sanctuary!

The XSPOT provides peace and quiet, a scenic half hour flight from Auckland or North Shore Airport, or a four and a half hour cruise by boat from Wynyard Wharf in downtown Auckland. Once you have landed on Great Barrier Island, either in Tryphena or in Claris, use a 4WD car, either rented or BYO on the ferry, to get to 421 Schooner Bay Rd.

Here you will find tranquility and a break from it all. It's paradise found.

Tempted? Send us a booking or an enquiry. We'd love to hear from you!
