As you step outside THE CEDAR HOUSE in the lingering twilight, the inky sky is littered with stars. There is not a breath of wind and in the faint light cast by the moon, small waves lap the rocky shore. Completely isolated and hugged by the surrounding hills and blanketed by a glittering night sky. In the still night air, a procession of cattle, slow and methodically plod along the ridge, faintly silhouetted against the darkening night.

In this amazing and isolated location, it would be easy to imagine yourself as one of the early pioneers but for the modern comforts to be found in this luxurious cedar clad beach house. A sun drenched deck, three ocean front bedroom suites plus a bunk room that can sleep 8. With a huge open plan dining and living space, well stocked with books and games for all ages, means there is plenty of space for everyone to relax and do their own thing, coming together as and when you choose. Whether you are marking a special occasion or just taking a break from the hectic pace of life, you will leave THE CEDAR HOUSE with a fresh perspective and a warmer heart. 

This escape was designed for entertaining - the perfect pad for a group of friends, or extended family to celebrate a milestone. The expansive living area with fireplace offers floor to ceiling glass sliding doors, bringing the outside in and offering truly gob smacking views! THE favourite spot is the internal courtyard complete with a heated swimming pool, six person hot tub, and outdoor fireplace. Exterior wall panels pivot open to reveal the surrounding rolling green farmland - brilliant.

This 4000 acre estate farm, a leisurely hour’s drive south from Christchurch, ticks all our boxes for an old fashioned yet luxurious getaway. Its location on the Banks Peninsula – a spectacular rocky headland facing the Pacific Ocean – is a picturesque palette of muscular ridges, private coves, and grassy hills grazed by the resident sheep and cattle. Arrival at this sea flecked retreat is either by helicopter or a panoramic drive along cliff top tracks. Roughing it has never been this comfortable!

The Philosophy
Fresh and delicious local produce is a hallmark of a stay at THE CEDAR HOUSE. Working closely with the gardeners, farm management and the award winning chef to ensure we can offer the freshest ingredients, sourced straight from the farms land and extensive gardens and orchard. 
With the Farm to Table cuisine guests can enjoy the edible garden which holds a large variety of vegetables and herbs and the heritage orchard contains numerous varieties of apples, pears and plums. Hand select fruit from the heritage trees and vegetables from the edible gardens and forage the bay surrounds for wild edibles all to shape the food that is cooked and presented each day.
This philosophy embraces THE passion for sourcing as many ingredients as possible in season and from local growers and suppliers to our properties. Thus, for the ingredients that cannot be sourced for this escape directly from the farm, we operate within a 100km food footprint working closely with our suppliers to complete the THE experience.

The Home Escape THE CEDAR HOUSE Testimonials

THE catered meal was super - beautifully done

We had a lovely time, weather apart - but that's par for the course here in the UK. Everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly.

Overall, a beautiful house in a delightful location.

Lynn and Ken Dalziel | Cyprus -THE MILLSTREAM

Great combination: lovely house, rice field and gorgeous sand beach!

What a beautiful house with a gorgeous view facing sun set and rice field; “you can not talk of such a place without crashing your decor, exceptional it is true! Imagine just come face to green rice fields and fields dotted with disheveled huts lonely 180 ° and 400 meters from the best beach on the coast. We had the chance to enjoy this place early June, it was perfect: sunny, lovely beach, warm enough water, very quiet… like a paradise; we would definitively come back to visit.
