Watch the sun set and pukekos play from the expansive decks of this contemporary holiday home. Sheltered from the on shore sea breeze, it is just two sections back from beachfront on the river's edge. Take a one minute flat stroll for a morning swim or use the kayaks to paddle directly from the bach down the river and out to sea on the tide. Enjoy the hot outdoor shower afterwards.

Designed into two wings for maximum sun and views, the living wing and sleeping wing are connected by a breezeway protected by glass bi-fold doors. Spacious, light and airy, the open plan living wing has well equipped kitchen with all mod cons, bench stools, large dining table and sofas and bean bags to enjoy indoors or out on the decks. Decks on all sides mean there is always a spot to enjoy a drink and a book whether you are looking for sun, shade or shelter.

Bring ipods to connect to sound system in living wing and own DVDs. Gas outdoor barbeque available and outdoor furniture.

Blockout curtains ensure a good night's sleep in spacious and comfortable bedrooms. Plenty of wardrobe space for your bags. Luxury master bedroom with private ensuite and expansive views across river.

Parking available for boat and fish table for filleting your catch. Boat ramp at Whangapoua Harbour a 3 minute drive.

The holiday house is at the northern end of Whangapoua Beach (end closest to New Chums) so it is a 30 minute walk at low tide to New Chums or you can play golf at Matarangi, a 15 minute drive away.

Whangapoua Store is well-stocked for supplies and meat can be ordered from the roving butcher in summer.

Perfect for extended families or two families wishing to holiday together. Couples wanting a romantic getaway can simply close off the remainder of the sleeping wing to enjoy their own private and luxurious retreat.

  • A very nice house far beyond your normal batch

    A very nice house far beyond your normal batch. Large, comfortable, and with some top end features. Love the location and sense of space of the property.

    Beautiful, well-equipped bach, breathtaking scenery, incredibly convenient location, safe beach for the kids to swim and play in, with a decent enough swell for us to get some surfing in. We had such an amazing week - it'll be hard to top!

    Beautiful place, large indoors with plenty of room for our large family group of 8 adults and 1 child. Fantastic outdoor space with lots of places to sit, and always a spot sheltered from wind and/or sun. Right on the river with great views over the surrounding farmland, and a couple of minutes' walk to the beach. Couldn't ask for more - we all loved it!
