This home is ideal for a quiet getaway on your own or suits two families to share.

A stones throw from the wharf and boat ramp it lends itself to a perfect day boating followed by an evening meal and drink at the Boat Club. The boulevard is a runners or walkers delight as it meanders along the estuary, past the World listed Bird Sanctuary, children's playground to the beach front. Complement this circuit with a coffee or milkshake at a local cafe and home in time to watch the glorious sunset over the ocean.

For the not so active the morning paper awaits at the nearby dairy or Four Square to be followed by a day on the deck watching the world go by.

  • The bach was lovely, we had a fabulous time

    The bach was lovely, we had a fabulous time. 12 nights without a washing machine was the only downside, but other than that the cottage is well equipped and comfortable and we would stay again

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Foxton Beach despite the weather

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Foxton Beach despite the weather. The property was very well equipped with everything we needed for our holiday and all the old school games were a real bonus and some good learning for the kids. Not having to spend hours cleaning after our stay was also much appreciated and was happy to pay for the cleaning to be taken care of. Highly recommended would stay again without hesitation. Thanks for the great stay :-)
