  • Only 40 metres to fantastic surf beach for swimming & fishing
  • Backs on to reserve - no roads to cross to get to beach
  • Comfortable family bach with large fully fenced garden

This clean & comfy family bach is just a short stroll across the reserve to the beautiful white sands & surf of Ruakaka in Bream Bay. The family can easily come & go between the bach & beach several times a day.

You can hear the waves rolling in from the master bedroom...

Or enjoy a meal with the family in the private BBQ area under the pohutukawa tree in the garden... And cleaning up after dinner is no hardship with the dishwasher & lovely view of the reserve from the kitchen window.

Children & teens are welcome - there's a 'Spongebob' bunk room for the young & young at heart!

The section is flat with easy vehicle access and has off street parking for 3-4 vehicles.

Ruakaka is only 90 minutes drive from Auckland & 20 minutes from Whangarei.

The bach is just a few minutes drive from Ruakaka Town Centre - supermarket, cafe, takeaways etc...

Nearby attractions include the glow worms at Waipu caves (about 20 minutes drive) and the Waipu golf club is about 10 minutes drive from the bach.

The bach is in a tranquil village setting & is a very peaceful place to escape every day life. The insulation, fire and heat pump provide for a warm winter escape while the kayaks, fishing rods, long lines and proximity to the beach make for a fun filled or relaxing summer holiday.

Special conditions: The bach comfortably sleeps eight, but can accommodate up to 10 people with fold out sofa bed in lounge. Pets are welcome if you clean up after them in every respect & ensure they keep off the furniture so the bach stays nice for all to enjoy...

  • House was great

    House was great. It was cleaned and we'll looked after. It really felt like a home away from home. Had all the amenities we needed as well as a kitchen with well stocked cooking equipment. Being that close to the beach was amazing, as we didn't need to plan on what to take to the beach. We could simply go back quickly if we needed something. Would definitely recommend it.

  • The Bach was immaculate with all the amenities beautifully presented

    The Bach was immaculate with all the amenities beautifully presented. Extra clean linen, towels, utensils etc - if required. Lovely airy bedrooms, with plenty of beds for adults & children. The lounge is very cosy & thoughtfully stocked with Board Games-Books etc to keep both adults & children entertained. Great space outside with decking & lawn and a very short walk to a fantastic beach - We would recommend it highly. Thank you Bird Family
