  • 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.

  • A delightful bach in the most beautiful and peaceful location

    A delightful bach in the most beautiful and peaceful location. Short stroll to the stunning, deserted Tirohanga beach and surrounded by birdlife. Not far from great fishing and beautiful hidden coves further up the East coast, and directly adjacent to the Motu cycle trail. Love the hot tub at night, staring into the star lit sky. Great place to get away with someone special.

    Everything you could need in here. Minor issue is road noise during the day.

    We stayed for a month - a beautiful location and the bach was perfect for us. Also had friends stay for a few days on sofa bed - which worked but a bit cramped - so best for 2 people really. Rode rented bikes on Dunes trail most days - beautiful.

    Private and tidy, this retro kiwi batch is perfect! Comfortable bedding, powerful shower, fully stocked kitchen & a functional layout. Concrete floors made cleaning up easy, the hammock & the plunge pool reminded us of the pleasures of being present in the moment. 2 min walk to our own private stretch of coast, fine sand & clear waters. These stressed & tired city folk went home with a clear head & lungs filled with fresh air. Just what we needed!
