Flax Haven is a new holiday home that has been built in to the remote lush surroundings of the Paparoa National Rain Forest. The sea views from Flax Haven are spectacular, being perched high upon a cliff peering out over the rumbling Tasman Sea. It's a brilliant way to escape from the high speed of life, get back to basics and in tune with nature - the sunrises and sunsets and the tides. It offers holiday makers the comfort and facilities required to relax and enjoy the best that Punkaiki offers.
