Relax in the sparkling one bedroom ground floor unit (with an adjacent second bedroom on separate access if required) looking out across the dunes to Bream Bay. The endless white sands of Ruakaka Beach are just steps from your front door.

Ideal for couples or families with smaller children, or ask for the adjacent bedroom on separate access for further options for family or friends.

The beach offers safe swimming between the flags during patrolled periods or head to the estuary, a favourite spot for families with smaller children and for kayakers. Watch the kite surfers if the wind is just right, or get away from it all and unwind with a long walk along the beach. A photographer's paradise. Birdwatchers will enjoy the estuary which is a haven for native birds.

Other activities nearby include surf fishing, walks, golf, diving and fishing boat charters. Marsden Point Marina is 10 minutes away for boat launching or watching the activity over a cup of coffee or a meal. Just 1.5 hours from Auckland and 10 minutes to Waipu. A supermarket and shops are a few minutes drive away or stroll to the local dairy for an ice-cream and weekend newspaper or stop in for a coffee at the cafe across the road.

Off street parking for the car and parking for a boat too, but please check with owner in advance.

Please note that the Owners live onsite in the upstairs unit.

    Property is very nice, tidy, right across from the beach, nice outdoor area and a strong shower which is always a bonus after a swim!

  • An idyllic location

    An idyllic location. Very well appointed. We were four adults and spent a very comfortable week at this property. Just a 2min walk to the beach and close to several shops. The facilities were very clean, tidy and had everything we needed. We will be going back.
