This clean and comfy family bach is just a short stroll across the reserve to the beautiful white sands and surf of Ruakaka in Bream Bay. The family can easily come and go between the bach and 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 and lovely view of the reserve from the kitchen window.

Children and teens are welcome - there's a 'Spongebob' bunk room for the young and 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 and 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 and 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 and ensure they keep off the furniture so the bach stays nice for all to enjoy...

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);

  • Good size property and garden with easy access to the beach

    Good size property and garden with easy access to the beach. House had everything we needed to enjoy our stay and was ideal for 2 adults 2 kids and 1 small dog. Helpful and generous owners made games, music, kayaks etc available for use. Alarm and security lights outside provided extra reassurance in a mixed income area. Local supermarket and stores nearby very handy.

    We loved that the property is a no-frills property and it has everything you need for a short holiday. We cooked BBQ and played at the beach with our pet dog. There's even a kayak and bikes that guests are welcome to use. It is a home away from home and we would love to come back! Thank you very much to the Bird family!

    Great location, brilliant neighbours who are super friendly. So close to the sea you don't have to take everything with you 'just in case' you leave something behind.... just nip back and grab it!! Home from Home.
