Description

This property has everything you need for a wonderful holiday. The position is stunning, right on the water's edge. Gaze at the beach under the boughs of a huge grandad pohutukawa. Sip wine under the palm tree. Launch your boat at the gateway to some of New Zealand's best fishing and dive sites. The beach is private and has two lagoons offering a safe, fun playground for children with estuaries and rock pools.

The house is one of the original beach houses that has evolved a unique charm over the years offering good indoor/outdoor living. It boasts two roomy waterfront queen bedrooms and a smaller charming captain's cabin with a queen and a fourth bunkroom with two single bunk beds leading off the large conservatory . There is a delightful little rustic antique caravan right on the waterfront that has a double bed suitable for either a young couple or an older child and also a child-size narrow single.

There is an optional roll out fence to keep young children contained and a sandpit in the front garden,

Total 8 in house and 2 in caravan.

  • I gave it 4 stars but think that 3

    I gave it 4 stars but think that 3.5 would be more appropriate. The location was awesome but the house was in need of some TLC.

  • Location is remote & gated

    Location is remote & gated. For international travellers the amount of items required to make stay enjoyable is too much, nothing is provided (toilet paper,salt/pepper,tea/cof etc). Not small child friendly, lots of stairs & main house only sleeps 4 not 8. Outside ‘Captain’s area’ does sleep additional 4, not part of main house. States 4 bathrooms this is not accurate: 1 indoor toilet & separate shower room. Plus 1 outside toilet & seperate shower. No full bathroom in property.

    This was a great location, right on the water and very quiet and peaceful. The bach was very well equipped and clean and well suited to our needs. Only downside was no cellular service for Spark.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for your comments. Spark coverage is certainly not great in the house but seems to vary from phone to phone but reception can be reached usually if you go the the pohutukawa tree on the waterfront in the garden- we call it the " office". Alternatively walk to the top of the drive.

  • Lovely setting with a comfortable house which suited all our needs

    Lovely setting with a comfortable house which suited all our needs. There is literally something for everybody, our little ones loved the sandpit and the safe environment. Easy access to beach and estuary a plus and the huge Pohutukawa at the front created a lovely shady spot on hot days. Would love to return for another stay.
