Come and relax in the Far North in the idyllic little town Houhora. An ideal spot for a family holiday – with so many great areas to explore and great beaches for surfing, playing and fishing there is an activity for everyone - young and old.

Aunty Pat’s Place is located directly across the road from Houhora Harbour, with stunning views of the Harbour & Mt Camel - this is truly a great place to chill out and relax away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Fully self contained, very comfortable, sunny 2 bedroom house with an open plan kitchen-living room (with foldout couch). Plenty of off- street parking and grass areas for tents. Houhora Fishing Club Restaurant and Bar / Boat Ramp - 1 minutes drive (fish off the wharf). Pukenui shops (4 Square grocery store, Bakery, Café/Takeaway and Liquor Store) - 2 minutes drive. Surf beaches, 90 mile Beach, Cape Reinga and Te Paki Stream where you can hire sand boards and slide down giant sand dunes are all a leisurely drive away. Kaitaia – 40 minutes drive.

Please note that there are now no petrol stations north of Awanui. Make sure that your vehicles have sufficient fuel to return to Awanui/Kaitaia, or carry emergency supplies.

Special conditions: If tents are used,then an extra charge of $10 per person will apply. If staying only one night, than there is an extra $30 charged, as it is the same cost (to us) for cleaning. We will only rent out to those over 25 years of age.

    This is a cosy, well equipped bach in a splendid location. It is worth noting that Pukenui has a very good 4 Square store.

  • This place was delightful

    This place was delightful. It was spotless and everything we needed was available. It had a lovely 'old fashioned' feel about it. The owner visited and was very kind, bringing us fruit and veges.
