This holiday home is only two minutes to local boat ramp and our beautiful estuary. It is located at the estuary end of Whitianga so cannot really walk to local beaches but Buffalo Beach is only a five minute drive away. There are some great little walks based around the estuary-even the walk to town is worth doing.

It has internal garaging which provides secure, covered parking for vehicles etc. Trailer boat storage is safe and secure behind locked gates. Washdown and motor cleaning facilities are on hand.

It is fully self contained with all comforts of home.Two relaxing lazy boys with free view TV and DVD player on 36" Flat LED TV screen.

Full laundry facilities are available-no drier sorry- but an all weather clothes- line is located on the sunporch.

Fish filleting facilities and local knowledge of fishing and diving spots is available from your local, friendly hosts next door.

There is a large, private outdoor area with table/chairs and BBQ - this area is child /toddler secure.

The property is within reasonable walking distance (or a short drive/taxi ride) to town, shops,cafes,restaurants, bars, New World and Countdown.

The bach is situated in a quiet, family friendly neighbourhood but is only minutes away from local attractions such as golf, charter boats, hot springs, mini putt, Banana Boat, wharf, marina, Bike Park, Fun Zone, beaches etc.

  • We love staying at the Fisherman's Rest

    We love staying at the Fisherman's Rest. It's our home away from home. Practical, clean and in a quiet neighbourhood. Excellent location and you can walk into town. Two supermarkets fairly close by and a nice town and cafes. Everything is there at your fingertips, especially the great beaches! Many thanks and see you again!
