The Garden

Aloe Aloe Gardens is on high ground on the outskirts of Kaitaia and looks across to Shipwreck Bay and the giant sand dunes of the west coast.
The garden was developed from a bare paddock - planted with bromeliads and landscaped with large volcanic rocks.

The Gardener

Jacqui, a fantastic cook, and Kevin, a professional diver and avid fisherman love to share their freshly caught seafood with guests. Ideal for garden lovers, fishing and diving enthusiasts and as a base for Cape Reinga, 90 Mile Beach and Ahipara.
