This bach is one back from the beach. The accommodation is an old cottage plus permanent caravan, a new separate bathroom/toilet utility room and sunny deck. The large flat lawn is shaded by the ancient Puhutakawas. The property in near the centre of the bay and next to the the small reserve. It is also very close to beach shops.

Oakura Bay is a beautiful safe swimming beach with many great walks around the beaches. The Bay is next to the Whangaruru harbour which proves safe boating no matter which direction the wind.

The main bach is an original mining hut from Hiruangi. The floor isn't flat, the stud is much lower than usual and the walls are not insulated. This is gueninely old and quirkey. The 2 back rooms are line with tongue and groove Matatai which menas they are very dark and the windows are tiny. We love that it is old and different.

Special conditions: Blankets available. Oven is a mini oven with 2 separate hobs

  • This bach had a lovely position, really close to the beach

    This bach had a lovely position, really close to the beach. Only negative comment was kitchen felt bit dusty and dirty, pots needed to be washed before use. Used the BBQ only which was great! Cute little bach if you like rustic! We enjoyed our stay.

    When I say 5 star rating I am rating this in the context of what it is, a fantastic genuine KIWI BACH. If you are looking for luxury accommodation this is not for you but if you are looking for a real Kiwi Bach at the beach holiday this is perfect.

    Thanks to Karryn & her Mum for a lovely stay and for looking after us. A cute batch with everything we needed. So close to the beach and a great base to explore the local area from.
