  • 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.

  • Lovely batch with beautiful views

    Lovely batch with beautiful views. Very well equipped kitchen too - which was great! Loved the large stainless steel frying pan! And the fresh parsley out the back door. The second fridge in the garage was such a bonus - didn't need all the ice we'd brought to keep drinks cold (we'd brought an extension cord with us, which was lucky, as it was needed to plug this second fridge in). The driveway is very steep - I swear I got fitter over the few days we were there ;).
