Beautifully renovated, this substantial family beach house is clean, modern and comfortable.

The home spreads across 3 levels with a large deck surrounding the front and side of the house providing sensational ocean and bay views. Tree’s surrounding the property provide privacy and attract local native birds.

Situated close to the waterfront, a sandy peaceful beach is only two minutes walk away. During the summer months a pontoon is installed in the bay - great fun to swim out to and drive off.

Tapeka is a fantastic location. It’s a secluded bay tucked away from hustle and bustle but also only a few mins drive from Russell’s cafes, restaurants, shops and historical buildings.

Many of the excursions available in the area depart from Russell Wharf including swimming with dolphins, sailing cruises, fishing charters and speed boat trips to the Hole in the Rock. A passenger ferry also operates regularly from Russell to Paihia.

The White Beach House works well for families and groups, with a variety of different spaces and privacy for everyone. The house is clean and comfortable, and very well equipped with enough room for everyone.
The top floor has fabulous panoramic views, a sunroom, king bedroom and full bathroom.

The middle floor is the heart of the house and contains a large living area that opens out onto surrounding balconies with ocean views. The huge open plan kitchen and dining area have concertina windows, providing a servery to a separate private balcony with an outdoor meals area.

The bottom floor has a bedroom, large bathroom and laundry, a kitchenette and lounge with bi-folds opening out onto a private deck.

In total there are 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 fully equipped kitchen, 1 kitchenette, 2 laundries, 2 lounge areas, a sunroom and 3 deck/balcony areas.

 The House was great. Really roomy and superb spot. The only con's is some of the chattels are dated or do not work, eg the Stereo system does not work, one of the dishwashers did not work etc. They were minor blips in an otherwise great stay.
