You are free to use our solar heated salt water chlorinated swimming pool, gas barbecue and covered barbecue area.

Free wireless broadband and free anytime telephone calls within New Zealand.

Just a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive to Mahinepua Bay which offers safe swimming, kayaking, boating or fishing or just a lazy day on the beach and exploring the rocky areas at low tide. Tauranga Bay is 10 minutes away.

If you are feeling energetic there is a DOC walk from Mahinepua Bay which is well worth the effort as it has the finest view in NZ.

The famous Kauri Cliffs golf course is 15 minutes away and Whangaroa Golf Club 20 minutes. Other areas close by that are worth a visit are Tauranga Bay, Whangaroa Harbour, Marlin Hotel and Whangaroa Gamefish Club, Matauri Bay surf beach which also has a grocery store with a liquor licence and a restaurant if you don't feel like cooking and the delightful village of Kaeo, with its museum, craft shop, post office, chemist shop, licensed restaurant, hotel & supermarket is 15 minutes away, The substantial town of Kerikeri is a 40 minute drive, perhaps a visit to their famous Sunday farmers & craft market?

A day trip to Cape Reinga via the famous Kauri Gum museum and cafe & onto Houhora takes you to the top of NZ and is a must, on your return a stop-over at the delightful fishing village of Mangonui, featuring the world famous 'Mangonui Fish Shop', which not only has the freshest fish in New Zealand but a tempting variety of home made gourmet seafood delights which are just irresistable.

A small house trained dog is fine with prior approval but definitely no big dogs.

The cottage has its own parking area which can accommodate two vehicles and further room is available for boat trailer. Small dog OK, but no large dogs and no cats (we have 3 small poodles).

    Perfect bach! Unbeatable views and every amenity that you need (The owners even thought to leave binoculars!). The bach is very quiet - no street noise or anything else. The beach is just a short walk away. The pictures don't do justice to the actual views. The bed is super comfy and the kitchen is stocked with all the equipment you need. One of the best baches we've stayed at!

    Beautiful location! Amazing view, cottage was stocked with everything for the perfect weekend getaway. One small suggestion would be to get a wifi extender as we couldn't connect to wifi from main house. Other than that....absolute perfection. Would definitely come back to stay.
