This holiday home is only two minutes to local boat ramp and our beautiful estuary. It is located at the estuary end of Whitianga so cannot really walk to local beaches but Buffalo Beach is only a five minute drive away. There are some great little walks based around the estuary-even the walk to town is worth doing.

It has internal garaging which provides secure, covered parking for vehicles etc. Trailer boat storage is safe and secure behind locked gates. Washdown and motor cleaning facilities are on hand.

It is fully self contained with all comforts of home.Two relaxing lazy boys with free view TV and DVD player on 36" Flat LED TV screen.

Full laundry facilities are available-no drier sorry- but an all weather clothes- line is located on the sunporch.

Fish filleting facilities and local knowledge of fishing and diving spots is available from your local, friendly hosts next door.

There is a large private outdoor area with table/chairs and BBQ - this area is child /toddler secure.

The property is within reasonable walking distance (or a short drive/taxi ride) to town, shops,cafes,restaurants, bars, New World and Countdown.

The bach is situated in a quiet, family friendly neighbourhood but is only minutes away from local attractions such as golf, charter boats, hot springs, mini putt, Banana Boat, wharf, marina, Bike Park, Combat Zone, beaches etc.

 Great house, very tidy and clean. The room look bigger than photo and all linen provided is the plus. We spent 2 nights during winter, it was very cold but the whole house was warm, even though all the heating was there. Highly recommended and would come back again in the future. 

 Liked everything! 

 It is very clean & tidy and handy to everything 

 Great bach, easy to communicate with owner. Will rent again 

 We had to find a place to stay quickly and Chrissy accommodated us with just 12 hours notice. Fisherman's Rest is a lovely comfortable place with everything, and more, needed to make it a home away from home. Although the reason for our trip to Whitianga was very sad, having Fisherman's Rest to retreat to helped immensely. A spotlessly clean home with too many extras to list here, friendly, helpful home owners and very reasonable rates made our stay during a family crises, much more bearable.
