Very peaceful and quiet location right on the edge of Ohiwa Harbour close to the main channel. Fishing, shell fish, kayaking, surf beach, bush walks, sailing, kite surfing, glow worms and more all at your door step, everything you could ask for in a tranquil beach side location. Further enhanced by the ever changing moods of the tidal harbour lapping at the property boundary. Watch the bird life come and go, feeding with the changing tides.

Be prepared to be awoken by the tuis and pigeons in the Kauri and Piripiri on the front lawn.

A true kiwi bach which is comfortable and partly renovated and probably will for a while, but that adds to the character.
