  • Enjoy a traditional kiwi beach experience in beautiful unspoilt Whangarei Heads.
  • Safe swimming beach within walking distance or choose your favourite from the many sheltered bays.
  • Lots of great walks and tracks including part of the te Araroa walkway from Cape Reinga to Bluff.

Relax by the beach in this lovely 1 bedroom unit with fantastic sea views. The perfect getaway for a couple.

Open plan lounge with beautiful sea views overlooking the bay. Large deck opens off sunroom. Enjoy the fantastic sunsets with a cuppa or a glass of wine.

All linen provided. Fully equipped kitchen with complimentary tea and coffee provided. Ample off street parking to park a boat or kayak. A sofa bed provides extra sleeping space if needed.

Choose your favourite beach from the many sheltered bays to the life guard patrolled surf beach, Ocean beach. New Zealand's latest DOC marine reserve is at the end of the Reotahi road. The combination of deeper water and swift current flows has produced a diverse reef-fish population unusual for a harbour environment.

An easy walking track leads on from the Reotahi marine reserve to the ruins of the 1921Freezing Works overlooking Marsden Point oil refinery. A walk to Smuggler's Cove takes you past WWII gun turrents. A coastal walk when the tide is out at the end of McLeod Bay allows you to visit a hidden pioneer cemetery.

A folder in the unit has maps and information on what to do.

    Basic, cozy little bach with amazing views from the living room & outside deck. Great location to explore the Heads. Could just use some wine glasses in the kitchen :) Would stay again.
