12 minutes drive from Opotiki and 25 minutes from Whakatane, a lovely peaceful and secluded area on the lovely Ohiwa harbour . Very safe for children. Full access to the harbour and channel from the front door. a very good boat ramp only 10 minutes away , leave your boat anchored in the chanel for an early start to the fishing out at sea. Great flounder fishing. Large area with ample parking for caravan.

The channel between the Bach and the island assures constant water and not hours of mud!!

Please note this holiday bach may not be suitable for some elderly

Dogs are welcome but must remain outdoors in consideration to the following Bach renters. Due to the harbour being so close and dogs loving the harbour the Bach would get very mucky in no time.

Also any messes left behind by the dog is the responsibility of the renter to remove. Thank you

Please remove any rubbish.

The bach will accomadate 4 or 5 comfortably. If you have more people please ask. I do limit the amount of people to typically no more than 8 if some are tenting.

''Dave, we can't thank you enough! Being able to enjoy your little slice of paradise is a privilege for sure. We had a great time and dined on fresh flounder and Oysters daily. This is a great little spot that was very hard to leave after three nights. We were lucky with the weather and that made it even more enjoyable. A big thanks to Ian as well, a very helpful and pleasant gentleman. Thanks again Dave, we will be back!! "

"Words just can't do this place justice so I'm not even going to try and describe it anymore. Give me the option of Hawaii, Rarotonga, California etc... or Ohiwa. I'd pick Ohiwa hands down any day. As a small child I dreamt of a place like this and when we stay here the feeling is just surreal. A huge thank you to Ian once again, your visits are always welcome and it's a pleasure chatting with you. This most recent stay was one of the best weeks of my life. Our whole family loved it. Cheers
