  • Fabulous views of Whangarei Harbour.
  • Beach access directly across the road.
  • Easy walking distance to dairy and yacht club.

Fantastic views across Whangarei harbour from this cute cottage. Just a few steps across the road to a lovely safe beach that is great for swimming, kayaking, boating, pipi gathering, scallop diving etc. There is also great fishing in the harbour, in Bream Bay, and at the Hen & Chicks a bit further out. Ruakaka surf beach is just a short drive away.

The bach is located a few hundred metres from a dairy, and close to Marsden Cove marina which has an all weather boat ramp, cafe/bar, beauty therapist/ hairdresser and bait & tackle shop. There is also another boat ramp a few hundred metres in the other direction by the yacht club. Just a half hour drive to Whangarei and one an a half hours from Auckland, this is a great spot with very easy access. There is plenty of room for car and boat parking.

A very comfortable bach that has lots of home comforts including an HRV system and coffee machine. There are four bedrooms (one also incorporates the laundry) and two toilets.

  • Ideal place for a holiday, marvellous view

    Ideal place for a holiday, marvellous view. Very handy to the marina and the other boat ramp. Very quiet surroundings. Easy access to Whangarei or Waipu. New alterations have opened the rooms up to the sun. My only quibble is that the seating on the couches is too low, making it difficult for older persons to get up off them.

    In my opinion the location can't be beaten! It is just straight across the road to the beach and we only came across someone at "our beach" once. The property had everything you would need such as cricket bat sets, umbrella's for the outdoor table etc. Lots of places for people to sleep in the house, although I do have to stay the bunk beds were so creaky we just didn't use them and the single bed in the same room required another mattress as it was "all springs". I would use this bach again.
