  • 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...

    Fantastic value property with plenty of extras to keep all the family occupied indoors or out. Great location close to the beach.

  • Absolutely just what the doctor ordered

    Absolutely just what the doctor ordered. We loved the place, the easy access to the beach, the large garden that the children could stay in, all the utensils in the house. We were blown away how homely this place was - home away from home. I was blown away how you openly shared your possessions at the bach. Have already applied for the next stay. Thank you for sharing your beautiful bach.

    Awesome place! We were not sure what to expect as at the time it was the cheapest available on our dates, I must say we were all very pleasantly surprised the house suited all our needs it was clean tidy and very warm, its location was perfect for our needs as we had come for the Ruakaka races. Although you can not see the beach you can hear the surf and after a brief walk through the park you are at beach very nice. certainly would not hesitate to recommend this property to other friends
