About the Property
Villa, 3 Bedrooms 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Designed by renown New Zealand Architect Martyn Evans, Rongotai is shaped like a swallow. A complementary shaped garage faces it across a circular driveway. A helipad in the rear and landscaped grounds complete the complex. The house is built of steel and glass with three two-meter skylight domes over the kitchen, master bedroom and a guestroom. The night skies of this secluded area are spectacular. There is a Bose home theater and daybeds for reading or relaxing in the living room. Nautical stairs lead up to the crow's nest for a longer view for spotting yachts, dolphin and orca. There are three bedrooms in the main house each with a stunning view of the ocean and surrounding manuka forest.
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, a study room with glass desk and broadband hookup, a whole room just for showering with two Philippe Starck fittings; one of which reaches outdoors to the deck and a toilet room with a Japanese Toto Washlet with temperature and pressure controls for rinsing and bidette functions.
The infinity pool gives the impression you are in the sea. There's a jacuzzi on the lower level with shower, sink and an outdoor loo with a view. Rongotai is so isolated, no one can see you here.
The garage has a bathroom, laundry and kitchenette combination and a sleep-out style bedroom. There are hiking paths near the swimming pool and the landscaping is designed completely with native trees and shrubs.
Birdwatchers will delight in the shearwaters, gannets, and other native birds. There are bird, fish guides and star charts with binoculars provided. At night you can hear the New Zealand Morepork (owl family) and sometimes even a kiwi call. A short walk to the beach or a 3 minute drive will take you to Tauranga Bay beach for swimming, walking or a visit to the dotterel sanctuary. There is a kayak school in the area.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: We are a Japanese-American couple. We love New Zealand for the pioneering spirit of the people there, and the natural beauty that has been preserved. A favorite hobby is observing wildlife and it's there in abundance in New Zealand.
Why the Owner Chose Far North District, Northland, New Zealand:
We looked all over the world for this property. We wanted a house on a mountaintop overlooking a beautiful sea. We searched in Phuket, Thailand; Florida, USA; Ixtapa, Mexico; the Costa del Sol of Spain and found just what we were dreaming of in New Zealand.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We love waking up to the view of the sea. We like to bird watch and dolphin watch from the house or go fishing in the nearby waters and coming home with an abundance of fish to cook up as bouillabaisse, curry fish head (a Singapore dish) or just grilled fish. We take early evening walks along the beach at Tauranga Bay to Butterfly Bay.
