About the property

Bach or holiday home, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 16)

This elevated absolute waterfront property enjoys spectacular sea views to the Poor Knight Islands and the Whananaki coastline from nearly every room in the house. Set on 5 acres, fringed by pohutukawas and native bush along the shoreline this unique property enjoys two private beaches and its own mooring in a sheltered, all weather sandy bay.

Breakfast at the outside table with sea views to die for, recline on the deck and soak up the all day sun, play volleyball or cricket on the massive front lawn, wander along a loop track through native bush to a seat on the point - a special place to sit and contemplate above the ocean, check out on a side track what was once a small Maori pa, walk down our private track with steps to the beach to swim, fish off the point, snorkel or dive for crays, take our two kayaks for a paddle around the bay or along the coast or take your boat off the mooring and out for a day's fishing. The fish and cray in the photos were caught from the offshore reef just out from the beach. Winter fishing is best here.

Take one of the local walks: by the estuary to the old wharf and bar entrance, around the Whananaki sand spit, to the DOC headland reserve, stroll across the footbridge to Whananaki South beach or just walk down the road to beautiful Otamure Bay.

We are two and a half hrs from Auckland, 35 min from Whangarei, 5 minutes to a great surf beach, 2 minutes to a boat launching ramp in the Whananaki estuary and 3 minutes to the local general store (no fuel).

Dining table seats 10 to 12. Tiled ensuite plus separate upstairs and downstairs bathrooms, 3 fridges plus a stand alone chest freezer. Fish cleaning bench, bait freezer. Table tennis and a volleyball net. Parking for boats, cars and trailers.

We charge a bond of $500 to cover any loss/damage - rarely charged - 3x in 7 yrs. This property has a Meths Detector tamper proof continuously monitored silent alarm which detects P labs and P smoking.

Special conditions:

Dogs by arrangement.

Leave the bach vacuumed, clean and tidy - we refund $70 of the cleaning fee as Fiona will do just the toilets and showers. If she does more (bar b q, fridges etc) we charge more - to the max of $100. If you prefer to andquot;walk outandquot; we can do the full clean for you for the $100.

Blankets/duvets are provided on all beds as part of the general rental. Electric blankets on all beds aside from the 4 bunk beds. Electric fan heaters in each bedroom.

Extras: Cleaning (Optional, NZ$100.00 per stay); Linen (Optional, NZ$12.00 per person);

Brilliant secluded location for a restful and healthy holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant secluded location for a restful and healthy holiday. The house and property is spacious with very adaptable areas. We comfortably catered for a mixed aged group of eleven including children. The property is well stocked with everything we needed. Main food items need to be taken as local camp store is understandably limited. Loved the beach kayaks, and the big grassed area. The track down to it is not suitable for the very ancient. Excellent Bach, owner response, and location.

Beautiful location on spacious peninsula grounds with amazing views that you could spend all day loo

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location on spacious peninsula grounds with amazing views that you could spend all day looking at. Lots of space for boat and cars. Has three bathrooms and would comfortably sleep five couples plus kids. Only has two close neighbours, but these are screened from the property. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
