This 900 sq foot dwelling consists of 3 bedrooms. Safe sheltered, white sand harbour beach at your doorstep. Easy beach launching for boats & plenty of parking.

Just metres from the waters edge, this beach bach is perfectly positioned in an idyllic bay to maximise harbour views and beyond.

Launch the boat for a morning fish or afternoon dive,explore the safe harbour on your kayak or simply relax in the Northland sun.

The 8 person max limit applies to any tents, caravans or camper vans on the property during the tenancy.

You can launch in front of the property. Mid to full tide is best for launching. The beach is flat and hard.

For the outside fire it is BYO Firewood. NB To access The Store you will need to drive along the beach and you need to be at least two hours off high tide. Sand is hard so this is not a problem.

    5stars for the location, for how family -friendly it is and how it makes you relax and enjoy your every beach moment. We loved it. Our kids (6,11,12) were either On the swing, the beach, walking up the hill or in the water the whole time. Can't praise it enough. The Bach is not flash. It's a true kiwi Bach in every sense of the word. You arrive and thrive. We will be back!!

    The Store was a real special place to stay at we had a fantastic holiday and absolutely loved the location, batch and vibe. The batch was bigger than it looked in the photos and the drive around to the bay was no drama with a standard car. Great for families as the children make their own fun exploring-Thanks Jenny we will be back :-)

    If you are looking for a total relax in a wonderful little cottage look no further. The Store is very well set up with great comfortable beds and all the kitchen equipment you could want. The location is perfect and access along the beach was no problem. The beach was pristine with great oysters and pippies, also very friendly locals, The shop at Oakura had plenty of supplies for anything you have forgotten, and the fish and chips were very good.

    The location of this Bach is its selling point - right on the beach. Doesn't get any better than this. Bach itself is very basic which we liked. Only one Queen bed and the rest are doubles and singles, so if more than one couple is staying you have to take this into account. We had a mix of really stormy weather and stunning sunshine and enjoyed our stay during both. This is our second stay at The Store and I am already thinking about next year's holiday there and when to book!
