Located on the 18th fairway of The North Course, the four-bedroom Villas at Te Arai Links are currently being built to boast stunning views out to the Pacific Ocean, Little Barrier and Mokohinau Islands. Beautifully designed by architect John Irving, the architecture holds a timelessness that makes these Villas something special. The coastal palette of horizontal weathered timber boards, sarked timber ceilings, concrete and stone sits harmoniously in the surrounding landscape.

With a full kitchen, indoor fireplace, generous living spaces, external firepit and ample outdoor living, the Villas provide plenty of options for entertaining. Each bedroom suite has its own double-vanity bathroom, creating a private retreat for each guest.

Interiors by Jenni Kayne are beautifully detailed, luxurious and comfy, drawing on colours and tones of the coastal environment.

Architectural Design

“The buildings at Te Arai Links represent the design thinking of our practice – a desire to simplify and to belong in its place. The buildings are intended to merge into the landscape. The colour palette is one of weathered driftwood, sand and native vegetation, the forms are deliberately simple and humble.

The intention is that when you arrive at Te Arai Links, the architecture will not be shiny and new, but will feel that it belongs in this absolutely stunning environment, providing the backdrop to one of the most beautiful and natural golfing environments that New Zealand, and indeed the world, has to offer.”

Interior Design

The Jenni Kayne interior design aesthetic embodies an earthy and effortless approach – one that is intentional and where beauty, functionality and authenticity co-exist in every detail. A natural extension of this ethos are the Jenni Kayne interiors for Te Arai Links. Jenni draws upon her California heritage and seamlessly applies it to this New Zealand golf resort in a country where she spends a lot of time and has an enate fondness for the landscape and its people.

Jenni believes in a style philosophy that is rooted in classic details and enduring comfort. These timeless interiors showcase Jenni’s signature California-inspired aesthetic in perfect balance with its New Zealand characteristics.
