  • The Harbour only meters from the front door. The channel at your doorstep, not miles of mud!!
  • Fishing and oysters to be enjoyed. Use the Kayak or dingy, bring your net and catch your dinner.
  • A true kiwi bach to be enjoyed by all !!!! Be sure to read the great feedback.

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

  • I could not recommend this place enough

    I could not recommend this place enough. It was exactly what we needed away from the stress of the city. It is perfectly situated on the waters edge which makes for spectacular sunsets and just all out relaxation. The Bach itself is open plan with a separate shower room, with all windows looking out to the water. We sat and watched the fish jumping for hours. Unfortunately we didn't have the skills to catch any, but nevertheless we enjoyed trying! Will be back again soon! Thank you again Dave!

    Property was AMAZING our family loved it! Words can not describe how beautiful this place is. Weather was amazing and i can not tell you how warm the water is first thing in the morning. If you want your family to spend good quality time together without technology this is definitely the place to take them. Total relaxation :) Make sure to take some marshmellows to cook over the open fire that is right on the waters edge. Thanks so much Dave for sharing your slice of paradise.
