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 perfect for catching fish from. 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. Please note: there is no oven. There is a stove top, microwave, electric fry pan and large BBQ for cooking.

A large lawn below the cabins provides additional space for camping and outdoor recreation. Outdoor games equipment is available for your use including a canoe. 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.

A general store, takeaways and 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 and 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/monthly rates can be discussed.

    Although the weather was dismal, we really enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed the cosy atmosphere and could really see how amazing it must be to stay in during the summer. Our children enjoyed themselves even though there was no internet (bonus!) Could definitely see myself booking here again. Thanks again!

  • Perfect Kiwi bach

    Perfect Kiwi bach. Small walk to the beach which is a fantastic spot. Bach is clean and tidy. There are baches around close by but they are not visible so you feel like you’re in your own oasis. One bach owner behind us decided to chainsaw Manuka all over Waitangi weekend, but that’ could happen anywhere, especially on a public holiday. We just walked to the beach and couldn’t hear a thing! Highly recommended and will be back
