  • Absolute harbourside beach frontage, short stroll to good swimming beach.
  • Stunning panoramic harbour views, watch the boats, seabirds, occasionally a pod of orcas.
  • Short drive to Te Puia Hot springs, Kawhia Ocean beach, dig your own pool at low tide.

Cottage on corner site, elevated & waterfront, just a wee walk to beach. A further stroll into the village to check out the Museum, one of the Art & Craft shops, have a meal or a drink at one of the Cafes, Bars or Clubs. Maybe a spot of surfcasting off the wharf, harbour or ocean side? Or you may prefer to join a Fishing Charter Trip? Choice of walks, past boat ramp, lagoon out to harbour entrance & ocean beach or maybe along the walkway at Aotea beach, the adjoining harbour? Check out the ancient pohutukawas which are closeby, or the resting site of the Tainui canoe.

Enjoy a step back in time, life at a slower pace than what you are used to. Relax on the couch, read a book, lay on the beach. Dig a hole at low tide & soak in the Te Puia Hot springs, especially good on a fine day watching a magnificent sunset. You may choose to venture further afield & take a trip north to Raglan via the scenic coast road (some gravel) with a short detour to view the spectacular Bridal Veil Falls. A drive south around the harbour will take you to Te Waitere, Marakopa & beyond to Kiritihere where you may find a fossil or two. While in the area check out Piripiri Caves, Natural Bridge & another waterfall. Otorohanga Kiwi & Native Bird House is a 55km drive away, with Waitomo Caves, Blackwater rafting a little further down the road. Bring your four wheeler or four wheel drive & drive out to ocean beach at low tide, taking care to stay below high tide mark so as not to disturb the nesting dotterels.

Whatever you choose to do, enjoy this west coasts best kept secret & don't tell too many people!

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only, pick up butts. Please note, adjoining accommodation next door for 6, see Pohutukawa 'Hutu' for more information.

    The location with a view out to Kawhia Harbour is magnificent, peaceful, quiet, and idea for our purposes. This is our second visit to the bach and intend to re book again.in the near future.
