The highlight of this Kiwiana bach is the secluded white sandy beach at the bottom of the property. The beach is accessed via a little path that leads off the front lawn and winds its way down through native bush and across a small coastal stream and a conservation reserve to the sand. The beach has a lovely untouched and remote feel, fringed in mature native vegetation and framed by rocky outcrops. The sand is white and the water is clear and turquoise blue. Take a picnic to the beach or a towel and good book for a relaxing day.

The Hidden Tui cabins are currently configured to sleep eight. The "sleeping" cabin has two open plan rooms with a double bed in one room, a double/single bunk and single/single bunk in the second room. The second cabin has a small but very functional kitchen and a bathroom with shower, a day bed, TV and table and chairs.

A large lawn below the cabins provides additional space for camping and outdoor recreation. Outdoor games equipment is available for your use. The cabins are joined by a seaward facing wooden deck edged in tree ferns and while sitting at the outdoor table you can enjoy lovely views over the trees down to the ocean. A rear covered deck provides a second sheltered outdoor entertainment area with a BBQ and access to a second toilet.

Access to property is via a shared access steep concrete driveway that leads off a quiet no exit street.

A general store, takeaways & service station are in the Whatuwhiwhi village, a short 3 minutes drive. Laundry facilities are available at the camp ground a short 2 min drive down the road. Golf, dining and wine tasting at Carrington Resort & Winery is just up the road.

You will find yourself about 30 minutes from Ninety Mile Beach and a couple of hours from Cape Reinga, with more gorgeous beaches all the way up the east coast.

Please contact us should you need the bach for one week or longer during low season as special weekly rates can be discussed.

  • Clean tidy Bach with nice clean fresh linen

    Clean tidy Bach with nice clean fresh linen. Excellent location with great view. The absence of a washing machine is a hassle and a washing machine would be a great addition.
