Plenty of room for your boat on concrete (no tricky reversing required) and launching across the road.

There are also several awesome beaches within minutes drive from the house to explore on your holiday. So there is always a sheltered location in any wind direction.

    Spent an awesome 6 nights at the funky fish! The bach had everything we needed and was very clean when we arrived. You get gorgeous sea views from every window and a large modern kitchen which was great for us foodies. There are so many great beaches in the area. We loved swimming at the beach just over the hill which has less boats, but our walks along Perehipe beach at night were magical. Matai bay was great for rock fishing. Tokerau beach was great for long walks. Loved every minute!

    We had a lovely weekend here, it has everything you need to enjoy an active holiday. My 2/12 year old son loved it so much he asked if we could stay at the holiday home forever. It's a great location especially for those that love fishing and kayaking. It also has a batch feel so you don't need to be to precious about sand etc (great with a toddler). The batch also has good indoor / outdoor flow. We will definitely stay here

  • Was a lovely spot right opposite the beach

    Was a lovely spot right opposite the beach. The kayaks were great. Clean and tidy, lots of board games and enough space to accommodate lounge and dinning area. Lovely getting the wood burner going, well stocked with wood too.
