Description

  • Only a short walk to the beach. Excellent fishing, surfing and safe swimming.
  • Henderson Bay is a stunning beach known well to locals but a well kept secret elsewhere.
  • Cape Reinga, Te Paki Stream a drive away makes it a perfect location for sightseeing the Far North.

The Little Cottage is an old but comfortable weatherboard house with polished floors set in amongst palms and succulents. The lounge opens out onto a spacious deck, ideal for evening barbies and relaxing. It is not flash but everything works. We don't use it so you do need to be prepared to bring what you need. This type of accommodation is a step

up from camping (and you are welcome to bring tents) but still pretty basic.

A short 2 minute walk down the road is Henderson Bay beach. Henderson Bay is a 5km long white sand beach with surf but also rocks and lagoons for families. This makes it an ideal family beach with a little bit of something for everyone.

The walk is 100m down a road then down a steepish sand dune track.



A superb feature of Henderson Bay is its lack of beachfront houses (this house is the 3rd from the beach) or camping grounds which means accomodation here is pretty hard to get and keeps the beach relatively unpopulated in summer.

If fishing is your thing, this place is a paradise. Fish off the rocks/surf or launch your boat at Houhora or nearby Rarawa Beach.

Henderson Bay is 50 mins north of Kaitaia and is 20 minutes drive from the Pukenui shops which include a 4 Square shop, Bakery, Café/Takeaway and Liquor Store. Pukenui is also the home of the Houhora Fishing Club Restaurant & Bar. Opposite the store is the Pukenui Wharf, where you can use to put your boat in on the East Coast.



There are many places to see in the Far North.. Cape Reinga, Tapotupotu Bay, Spirits Bay or Te Paki Stream famous for its giant sand dunes.

It is a kiwi bach and not a motel so please don't expect flash or perfection but it is comfortable and a great place to relax and as hosts we will do our best to make sure you have what you need for your getaway.

  • We had a fantastic 4 night stay at the Little Cottage

    We had a fantastic 4 night stay at the Little Cottage. It is a beautiful little bach in an unbelievable location, on a quiet street 2 minutes walk from an uncrowded white sand beach. Checking in and out was a breeze, the cottage was very clean, the queen bed is comfortable, and the kitchen is stocked with everything you could need. Can't recommend this place highly enough, we can't wait to come back.

  • Location wonderful, private, quiet, very close to spectacular beach and good walks

    Location wonderful, private, quiet, very close to spectacular beach and good walks. Bach adequate but very basic, minor maintenance issues, could have a bit more comfort eg floor coverings, light shades, maybe the odd cushion or throw, some books/mags etc. Beds comfy, slept well, very relaxing place. Will stay there again.
