Dream of a romantic weekend getaway or a family holiday with your pet? Our refurbished bach offers both simple style and comfort. Peaceful, private outdoor entertainment areas in sun and shade with pizza oven and bbq. Enjoy bird song, sounds of the sea and a lovely rural view of the rocky Bream Head hills. Keruru, Tuis and other native birds often visit us.
Ocean Beach is truly stunning and has lots to see and do. Life guards patrol in summer. Play in great surf, fabulous rockpools, white sands and dunes. The beach is dog friendly for most of the year. It's on the East Coast of the North Island, about 2 1/2hrs from Central Auckland.
If you can bear to leave the beach you’ll find several awesome managed coastal bushwalks close by. They take you through historic sites, protected reserves, beautiful native bush and rocks and loads of native birds including kiwi and native robins. A photographer's haven!
Drive back 5mins to launch your boat or kayaks, explore the harbour estuary, fish with the kids from the wharf. Enjoy a leisurely meal around Parua, the local shopping area 10mins away. The estuary is great for little kids. A golf course is 20mins away; Whangarei City Centre 30 mins.
Explore the coast further North and you'll find other unique beaches like Kauri Beach and Pataua.
Our bach is (we think) loads of easy fun, very relaxing and has a good vibe- having a friendly neighbourhood helps too! We focus on leaving city stresses behind for a while. With the separate sleepout there's plenty of spaces for all.
We allow up to two pets inside our bach with you- ALL pets need our prior approval (vaccinated and flea treatments up to date).
Our property is fenced but talk to us if you have a particularly determined escape artist with you. Easy to tether your dog if necessary on deck under the covered awnings.
We hope you'll visit our little piece of unspoiled paradise soon. We welcome any questions you may have.
Note: We have 1 separate Toilet and 1 bathroom containing a bath and a shower in the bach. There is NO toilet in the sleepout, Please make sure your family is comfortable with this arrangement. Our family and friends have never found it to be a problem.
We recommend only confident teenagers and/or adults sleep in the sleepout for this reason.
NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);
