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 3-4 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.

    Excellent location with quiet streets for the kids to play on. Just a short stroll to the beach. Very well set up for a couple of families, spacious and comfortable. Excellent water pressure for showers post beach and well set up for bbq.

  • This was an excellent property

    This was an excellent property. We had two families and the batch was designed to accommodate with ease. The facilities were in good condition and the location perfect. The only comment really is that Queen sized beds would be more suitable size for this level of batch. All in all great stay though. Will definitely book again.

    Owner/manager responds:

    We acknowledge your comment regarding the bed size. I believe they are a standard double as described on our booking page. This is our family bach so we are not a professional rental business or BNB and have chosen the furniture according to our needs. Glad you had a good stay. :)
