  • 3 min walk to deserted beach. Good for surfcasting.
  • Set on 3 acres of land. Beautifully private.
  • Beside Motu Dunes cycle trail.

Cute retro bach, set behind the sand hills of Tirohanga's Hikuwai Beach, on 3 acres of grass land. Fresh water hot tub makes for an amazing place to star gaze, or cool off in the summer months as a plunge pool. Google "Kiwitub." Property is 5km from the Opotiki township, which has cafes, sushi bar, supermarket, retro/antique stores, movie theatre etc. Or the Tirohanga general store is around 1km away. (Great place for ice creams.) If you are into mountain biking the Motu Dunes track goes right in front of the property. This is of "easy" grade so great for most abilities. It is 10km in total but links to a loop of many different tracks, right up to the 91km full loop, for the ultra keen and fit. There are however multiple other tracks, including a few which are 10km or less.

It is now most likely that you will see a Weka, (small native hen-like bird) or certainly hear them. They are fascinating to watch and are very cheeky.

The region has some amazing places to visit. Fresh water swimming holes where some of the Motu Trails tracks wind through. If bush walks are more your thing, you will not be disappointed. Fishing off the beach can be very rewarding too. Or simply take a drive along the Pacific Coast Highway and explore the Cape.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only. Pets allowed with prior approval. Plenty of tent space, although prior approval needed.

  • Great location to the track and beach

    Great location to the track and beach. Short walk along the track to the local shop and a short drive to the town centre. The place is perfect for a small family or if you have more there is room for a tent. Great for us and our two young kids. Went fishing and caught a few kawahai which we cooked on the bbq before having a dip in the hot tub. Look forward to going back

  • Wonderful location and the bach was just right for our requirements

    Wonderful location and the bach was just right for our requirements. Loved the retro/ kiwiana theme. We really felt at home there but unfortunately our holiday was cut short due to work commitments as we definitely would have extended our stay there.

    Our family really enjoyed our stay at the batch, what a lovely spot for a holiday home! The house was nice a clean and to top it off the hot tub was absolutely wonderful. We will be back :-)

    The place was nice and cool during the day, and it was tidy enough for me to be happy. The beach was a bit of a trek, but it was nice to listen to the waves crashing during the evenings. The Motu bike track was excellent, but it did mean that privacy was an issue, definitely no walking around the Bach naked, as walkers and bikers can see in. The hot tub was the draw card, and it did not disappoint.
