Looking somewhat like a Nissen hut of WW1 fame, the blue building now housing the cafe, shop and processing has overlooked the sea for 30 years. The Opotiki horticulturalist who planted the Macadamia trees, in 1983 or so, lived here with his family. The grounds are home to many frost tender plants that thrive in the warm coastal air.
This part of New Zealand's East coast is remote and undeveloped, which makes it a highly popular place in the summer and the desolate haunt of a few in the winter. Pretty romantic really. Suffice to say that the cafe is only open the summer.
