At the end of the Okahukura Peninsula in the community of Tapora, we have created a comfortable and stylish space for friends and family to sit back and enjoy a slice of rural life and coastal life.

Okahukura Lodge is designed to sleep 6 comfortably. The bunk beds are actually King Singles. There is a power outlet on the garage designed for camper vans.

Pets are welcome on request, and an understanding of the conditions.

With it's close proximity to the Tapora Golf Course and the Kaipara Harbour, this is an ideal place for a relaxing break. A boat ramp is nearby at Birds Beach. Birds Beach is also recommended as a great windsurfing spot. Atiu Creek Regional Farm Park is 16km back towards Wellsford.

There are also tennis courts and a children's playground at the school down the road.

Less than a kilometre away is Tapora Golf Club, this is a family friendly course, and because it is on the sand can be played on throughout the year. Green fees are $10, Club Days are on Sunday.

$5 per night of your rental goes to support the Tapora Land Care Group

We now have access to WIFI through the 4G network, ie it might be a bit slower than you are used to. Please feel free to surf, listen to music, watch movies, but be aware that we also don’t have unlimited wifi.

Special conditions:

Okahukura Lodge is situated on a working farm. Livestock may be in the paddocks next to the house. An awareness and appreciation for farm animals and gates etc is required.

The nearest shops and eftpos are located in Wellsford 30kms away. So you will need to bring all of your own supplies, and cash if you want to play golf.

The last 12km to get to the Lodge is on a gravel road.

Please note: If there are 4 or more people staying the $50 cleaning fee will be charged.

  • We really enjoyed our break

    We really enjoyed our break. The lodge is full of fine artistic style decorations, it presents a new concept of comfortable living to us. The house had everything we need and more: comfortable bedding; a good collection of books, games and DVDs; a big open planned kitchen and living area. Our children loved to explore the big open outdoor area with beautiful views. It's a wonderful location to relax and get a break from busy city life while still have the good speed WiFi to feel connected.

  • This is a lovely, simple, house, with lots of outdoor space

    This is a lovely, simple, house, with lots of outdoor space. It has been beautifully, quirkily decorated with some really nice features. Couldn't fault it. Good for peaceful breaks - but there is access to beaches, sites and a regional park when wanted. Great area. The owners are fast to respond and very helpful. Very highly recommended.
