Whangaroa Winter Warmth! - check out those heart-warming wood-burning fires !!

Romantic Eco-cottage, ideal for a couple or privacy-loving solo, but can sleep children (enquire:- 3 best-quality camp beds available and baby cot). Seaviews from bed! Free Wifi.

Outside bath, under native trees and tree ferns, with Waitapu Bay waters right there in view; utterly private!

Library of books and travel advice; games, cards; hammocks; bird whistle; wood-burning inside stove; fire-pit, firewood.

There is a wide and easy walkway 100m along to the harbour waters of Waitapu Bay; at high tide, step off the land into knee-deep water: at low tide, walk along the foreshore under the aged pohutukawa trees and pretend you are Robinson Crusoe.

Wood-fired and gas BBQs provided. So cooking own meals very possible, or patronize local cafes.

Access road now sorted; Volvo drivers manage it, even Evil Knievel could too!

Sewerage system is completely eco-friendly. Two huge water tanks hold an ample supply of drinking, showering and bathing water.

Fish from the property, or from the wharf: fish regularly caught include John dory, snapper and kahawai. Ocean sailing charters, art and crafts outlets, kauri forests, all await you.

Walk up St Paul's Rock or stroll the 1.5kms down to the local Marlin Pub or Fishing Club, both with restaurants.

Lovely beaches at Tauranga Bay (15 minutes' drive) and Taupo Bay for surfing (40 minutes' drive). Thai, Indian, and Fish and Chip restaurants within a short drive away.

Longer walks: to Lane Cove hut 2 hours; the Mahinepua Peninsula Coastal Walk (1.5hours). Other great walks: Taratara Boulders, Puketi Kauris.

  • The property was so perfectly located and private

    The property was so perfectly located and private. Could not have asked for a better location. Full privacy with picturesque ocean views. Beautiful bush scenery and bush walks to the beach. Kayaking for the adventurous type. The most relaxing weekend I have had. Thank you Terry for sharing your humble abode.

    La Grange is a wonderfully cosy little bach with a great setup, in a wonderfully isolated and private location. We loved our weekend away from the city!

  • The house is in a very secluded location, with great views

    The house is in a very secluded location, with great views. The drive way is an adventure, and a reminder that you are in a secluded location. Water access is not as close as photos might show, however it's only a short 5min walk. The location is great, highly recommend heading to some of the beach's in the area. Climbing St Pauls rock at sunset is also a must. Overall we had a great time at La Grange. Highly recommend it to anyone.
