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.

  • Absolutely beautiful

    Absolutely beautiful. So relaxing. A real hidden treat! Even with the rain it was so peaceful to be there. Owners just left us to our thing which was lovely and considerate. We really hope to get back there soon

  • A small cabin on a beautiful property

    A small cabin on a beautiful property. Very clean and tidy with everything needed for a relaxing stay. Private location on the grounds but Jo and her family are really welcoming and lovely, my daughter especially loved Milly the dog. You are 10 mins walk from the beach and 10 mins drive from food, drinks, playgrounds for the kids and the local store. We hope to be back again soon.
