Stylish, self-contained 'boutique' beach bach nestled amongst the beautiful tropical & native garden of our 2 and a half acre coastal retreat. Listen to the sound of surf from your bedroom, view the beach, estuary and Whangarei Heads from the sunny deck, relax and enjoy nature at its best with a short walk from your own private access to the unique bird life on the estuary and the spectacular private end of Waipu Beach with its white sand, clear blue water. Enjoy this special place, prefect for recharging your body and soul.

You can choose to have a totally private experience or join your hosts around the outside fireplace / pizza oven in the evenings. Wander around the French inspired vegetable garden and olive grove. Produce is available from our garden as well as free range eggs.

Kayak in the estuary, beautiful coastal walks, swim, surf and fish at the beach or feeling fit try kayak fishing off the beach. Once back from the beach enjoy a hot outside shower set in the tropical garden. The bach sleeps 2 in style and comfort but happy for children to stay on a foldout beds. Children five years and over an extra $10 per child.

  • We stayed for 8 nights

    We stayed for 8 nights. A great little unit, faces north so really warm. Outlook to garden. Really quiet away from busy waipu Cove. We waded across the estuary every day to beach which is well worth it. Beach is superb.
