XSPOT

XSPOT is a self-contained cliff top holiday apartment that provides modern accommodation for two - four. It is spacious, light and has ample room to relax and unwind, away from everyday distractions. It has wide vistas over the Hauraki Gulf, and our guests regularly spot gannets and dolphins and sometimes even a whale or an orca.

This award winning holiday accommodation on Great Barrier Island is the perfect base for exploring the wonderful natural treasures that Aotea – Great Barrier Island has to offer - the largest DOC park in the Auckland region, with a diverse range of well-maintained tracks, hot pools, water falls, pristine beaches, a bird sanctuary, as well as many endangered bird species and of course, the out of this world dark skies.

Please note that XSPOT is off the grid and secluded. It has 4WD access and guests must watch their power usage. Hair dryers, electric toasters and rice cookers are off the menu. :-) We love living this way, and 99% of our guests do, too, but it is not for everyone. So, will you grab this opportunity to experience living off the grid in visual bliss and relative comfort?

Flights

Your flight departs from Auckland Domestic Terminal and crosses the Hauraki Gulf. Keep your eyes peeled for dolphins or whales. Approx. 30 minutes after departure you will arrive at Claris airfield on Great Barrier Island.

Rental Car

On arrival at Claris, you will be met by a member of staff from the car rental outlet who will take you to your 4WD rental car, so that you can either come straight home to the XSPOT, or start exploring the stunning island that is Aotea Great Barrier. The tank will be full and you will return the car with a full tank, too.
