This great kiwiana bach is on the only street at Blachead Beach, 1 of 7 beach front bachs. From the deck enjoy uninterrupted views of the beach. Just step of the deck, walk onto the large front lawn, out through the sand dunes and onto the beach. A gorgeous sweeping beach which includes the Te Angiangi Marine reserve and shoal bay is only a 20 minute stroll up the beach. Blackhead beach offers diving, fishing and surfing with a great right hand point break, that works well on a south easterly swell.

The bach is set up for the classic Kiwi beach holiday. There is a wing with 3 bedrooms and a toilet/laundry that open up onto the deck area plus inside the bach is 2 more bedrooms, a shower & seperate toilet and backdoor/storage area. The open plan living space has a large dining table and a comfy sitting area and a kitchen with a view to die for. The living area also opens up onto the deck, making the house an L shape that all leads out onto a very large deck space. The back area of the bach has a concrete paved area which catches the lovely evening sun. The front lawn area is a fabulous large flat space to play family cricket, badminton or whatever you enjoy!

Blackhead itself is a very safe beach and street, with children playing happily, riding their bikes, scooter etc and hanging out in the sand dunes (visible from the bach deck!)

Just down the country gravel road (25km) is Porangahau village which boasts a country pub with great food, a local diary for basic supplies and also a good hang out for the sports person with a river to water ski on, a golf course and public tennis courts.

Note: There is now telecom mobile access at the top of the blackhead hill but not at the beach.
