Perehipe Beach is very sheltered and a great swimming beach, it is also the preferred boat launching beach in the area.

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

The house is opposite the beach and is a 40 meter flat walk to the sand. Lounge and dining room furniture updated, new pictures to come.

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.

Matai Bay, 10mins, Safe swimming, snorkelling, fishing and boat launching.

Tokerau Beach, 5mins, Safe swimming, fishing, Kitesurfing and plenty of Tuatuas.

  • Beautiful views

    Beautiful views. Place was extremely well kept. Amazing waking up to the beach right across the road. Would 100% come back to stay for longer. Thank you for sharing your place with us!

  • Such an incredible place to stay! Was very modern, with sea views...

    Such an incredible place to stay! Was very modern, with sea views. We loved using the kayaks and BBQ. Kitchen was well equipped for cooking inside too. The shops on Karikari Peninsula are limited, so I do recommend doing any shopping in the main towns before you come in. Kayaking around the bays was incredible.

  • Our second stay here and loved it just as much

    Our second stay here and loved it just as much. Great in winter and summer. Good fishing from the kayaks just off-shore. Easy drive to nearby surf beach, Puheke, and lovely strolls along the beach over the road, plenty to watch, guys dragging nets, rock fishing etc. Nice to retreat to the back of the house for a shady spot to read the paper. Local shop good for basics and fish 'n' chip shop good for an ice-cream or milkshake. Well-equipped kitchen and good dining area for meals and board games.
