About Jane Brenan
This unique land has been in our family since 1924 and comes under the Queen Elizabeth Trust which provides extra protection to the rain forest. Managing the 2 houses, on our piece of paradise, is a shared job between 2 sisters, and supported by our nephew who lives on site.
Jane Brenan purchased this House in 1924
Why Jane Brenan chose Piha
The Retreat was completed in 2010. It was built on the one clear piece of land in the entire property. The project included the wonderful Chris Tate, and a long process of approvals and building something very special to share was finally completed. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Because we want to share the experience of staying high in the rain forest with as many people as possible.

Family adventures in the bush and loving the Piha vibes!!
We had a stormy weekend which made the place all the more beautiful, staying warm and cosy with the fire. We ventured down and up and around and up again in-between showers into the bush. Amazing trees!!
There's so much history and mauri (life-force, energy) in this place, our boys and all had a fantastic experience. Weather cleared up on our last night with a beautiful sunny day out on the beach to finish it off!!
Thank you so much for sharing it with us! We'll be back again soon!
Awsome house, great views and cool Bush walks. Only qualms were that we were not aware of the fact that it doesn't have a full kitchen only kitchenette with the sink outside. Not a major though. Also we had a family staying directly behind us in the main house which looks directly at the outdoor bath, be nice if it was a bit more private, maybe a screen?
Very relaxing and enjoyable stay.
This is a beautiful, peaceful, rejuvinating spot.
We loved waking up to the sound of birdsong, looking down to the beach and Lion Rock, and sipping coffee quietly on the deck. We would absolutely come back here!
Great bush retreat
Lovely house, amazing view - a perfect hideaway in the bush
