2013 Silver Winner Golden Piwa Awards" BEST IN CHILD-FRIENDLY!

Welcome to our spacious holiday home, designed to capture the sun all day long. Laid-back & unpretentious, our holiday home is built for carefree, low maintenance holidays. The big bedrooms let everyone have quiet time, while the living room is really big - plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The whole front of the bach opens onto large decks while the lounge opens to a huge internal deck, with outdoor fireplace - perfect for chilling out, playing cards by the fire & BBQ'ing your catch of the day. At day's end, throw open the bi-folds, pull out a chair, listen to the surf rolling in, the Tui singing, the magic smell of the forests and ocean & enjoy the last of the evening sun as it streams into the living room & covered deck. We have loads of great books, DVDs, a Fooseball table for the kids (& the big kids!).

A 2-3 minute flat stroll to the beach & a short walk to Opera Reserve & the lovely bush walk to the estuary (10 minutes), where the kids can play safely in the water's edge, find starfish, collect cockles, blackberries & walnuts in season. The rope swing over the water is hugely popular with kids & adults alike! There is room for boats. And for the kids - cricket on the lawn or a game of rubgy or tag. Children make loads of friends during the holidays, often leading to cul-de-sac cricket games on the road or swarms of kids playing spot-light and having fun as kids should have - just like when we grew up! Fish, dive, swim, collect shellfish, play tennis, golf, canoe, take the kids to the stream that gently rolls into the ocean at the end of Whangapoua beach, the choices are all here. Walk to magical New Chums Beach for the day, take the picnic set & wander home as the sun is setting.

We are a small community without the hustle & pretence of bigger destinations, this place is truly paradise in a good old fashioned sea side village - just how it used to be.

    Really nice spacious house, perfect for a family with lots of room. A nice quiet location with a loads of sun. Very close to the beach, just a short walk. Loved the big Balcony with a out/ door fire place. Enough space for two families. Thanks so much for having us

  • This bach was great for our stay in Whangapoua

    This bach was great for our stay in Whangapoua. It was very vast for two couples. The bach had everything we needed and was located just 4 minutes to the lovely beach. We really enjoyed the outdoor fireplace and the lemons on the tree!
