  • The Bigger Beach House one of 2 buildings on site. Suitable 2 families or hire both together.
  • Privacy assured but we're not too far away should you need anything.

On your doorstep is private access to the beach for fishing, swimming, and fossicking in the rock pools. Or if you prefer, take a walk or mountain bike ride on the farm with its magnificent coastal and inland views *subject to farming activities. Something more leisurely? then put your feet up and relax, get away from the cel phone and tv and spend some memorable time with your family and friends.

Board games, books, jigsaws, cricket, volleyball, football, Frisbee or touch on the lawn.

Choose from one of 2 buildings: The Beach House, a cottage with 3 bedrooms or The Bigger Beach House with 4 bedrooms. Alternatively, if you’ve got a large group of family, friends or business associates use both buildings together as The Beach House can cater for up to 20 people.

Visit our website for things to see and do eg: snorkeling, diving, fishing, surfing, boating, walks, mountain biking, seals, shipwreck, beachcombing, paua and crayfish. Archeology, geology and history are there on your doorstep, as are the many farm sheep, cattle and pet pigs.

Venture out or give yourself the space to just relax and take in the astounding views of this changing environment from the large deck and living room.

Suitable for year round stays with woodburners (firewood supplied) in each building.

  • Fantastic spot

    Fantastic spot. Tora is breathtaking. Certainly eorth the drive! Great views of the sea with easy access for swimming, fishing, snorkelling etc. Our kids loved feeding the pig, and finding 'dinosaur' bones and a hammock right on the beach. They also loved our trek up one of the 'mountains' behind the baches. The houses have great kitchens, good beds, mags, tv, toasty fires etc- everything you need for a fab holiday. We are so looking forward to our next holiday at Tora. Thanks Doug and Sarah.
