This is the ultimate "Kiwi beach Bach" holiday home experience and the perfect base to explore the Islands and the Northland region of New Zealand. Only three hours drive from Auckland
We have shared our piece of paradise since 2000. Being located on a beautiful beach in a popular holiday destination we alway enjoy staying ourselves, walks, swimming, fishing and diving. This is the ultimate example of a Kiwi "Beach Bach" Vacation Home and a unique opportunity to experience some of what New Zealand has to offer.
Clive Raines purchased this house in 2000
Anything located on a safe sandy beach that is close to Auckland and has no road between the house and the beach is a rare find. The location, proximity to the islands, attractions and local services is unequalled. We also wanted something with space to share and an atmosphere to relax inside and out
This beach house is furnished and equipped to a high standard. The extensive facilities include free Internet, kayaks, row boat and much more. Leave your beach towel behind as the all tide swimming beach is just steps away. You will not be disappointed
This place in amazing! The website really doesn't do it the justice it deserves. After travelling for 3 months this was by far the best place - kids (age 3&4) could roam to the beach from the garden and safetly be seen from the house! The highlight of the week was jet skiing with the Dolphins! Would definately recommend!! A little peice of heaven!
