  • Built only a few years ago, so clean and modern.
  • The floor of the bach is completely level, therefore accessible for elderly and walking frames
  • Tinopai means Very Good, which is true to form!

Tinopai is a quiet settlement in the Northern Kaipara Harbour. Find your way to Maungatoroto, then Matakohe Museum and turn south towards the harbour. Good swimming, the water's so clean, being close to the Heads. The Matakohe Museum is a must, top class! The locals are really nice, we hope you get to know them. If you have a boat, great fishing 1 km up the estuary (exact spot is classified information). There's a wharf from which to fish if you are a landlubber.

  • Great property, warm cosy bach didn't want for anything

    Great property, warm cosy bach didn't want for anything. Recommend if you want a lovely quiet location stay here. Bring food and drink though as no shops or takeaway for miles. Thanks for a lovely weekend . Lisa

  • Property is remote and not near shops

    Property is remote and not near shops. We had to give the bach a clean before we could stay there. Only stayed one night, not the two we had booked.

  • Excellent spot on the hill with amazing views

    Excellent spot on the hill with amazing views. I've never sat down to relax (I did nothing) like I did on this occasion. I saw the view, dumped my bags & sat there for 3 hours! The house is comfy & well stocked & across the road from the boat ramp. Perfect for a quick dip. Loved it! Thank you very much :)
