Situated on the beautiful Whangaruru Harbour this lovely sun drenched home commands magnificent views from all rooms and decks. The sunrises and sunsets have to be seen.

The layout is on one level with 3 good sized bedrooms and shower room, toilet, and laundry down the hall. A large lounge room opens onto the kitchen/dining area. Impressive polished floor boards throughout.

There are beds for 8 plus a nice flat profile sofa in the lounge. There is also a single bed can break down to 2 squabs if required.

Plenty of room for the kids to play, make huts, catch fish and explore the water's edge. Heaps of fruit to pick.

Pets are welcome but please keep them under control, tidy up after them and please do not bring them into the house.

There is an all tide access boat ramp at the end of the road approximately 200 metres away and the harbour provides sheltered deep water anchorage.

This property is the perfect location for holiday makers who enjoy a bit of peace and quiet with their beachside holiday.

Nestled on the Oakura coast, this small peninsula is the jewel in the crown. Situated on the western side of Whangaruru Harbour and only a 3 hour drive from Auckland.

The Oakura coast and Whangaruru harbour area offers a magnificent array of sheltered sandy beaches with safe sheltered swimming for the kids. The harbour is plentiful with fish and the fishing and diving outside the harbour is spectacular.

    The location is amazing, the view at the house was unreal. Huge panorama of the harbour from the deck. We loved our stay and would recommend to anyone.

    Hi Kate, sorry you didn't find the deck chairs and umbrella. I will make a note on the info sheet as to where they can be found.
