  • Only a short walk to the beach for that morning dip
  • Close to all amenities

Beautifullly presented modern beach home. Ideally suited for a couple or small family to get away from it all and either chill out or explore local attractions. Hokianga is steeped in history so you can learn all about New Zealand's very beginnings 800 years ago. And of course you must visit Opo's memorial and resting place - our most famous past resident.

Conveniently located between the Copthorne Hotel and Resort and the Opononi Hotel.

Cafes nearby in Waimamaku, Omapere, Opononi, Rawene, Kohukohu and a short drive to the Bay of Islands. Cape Reinga can be reached as a day trip.

There are plenty of spectacular walks - walk South Head, visit Tane Mahuta in the Waipoua State Forest (20 minutes away), walk the beaches.

Sand boarding is always a favourite just a short ferry trip to the giant sand dunes.

Fishing is popular either from the wharves at Omapere or Opononi or if you're more adventurous, you can target the big game fish waiting outside the Heads. Great diving spots for that cray in the harbour or outside.

Also visit Koutu Boulders a very short drive from Opononi - see boulders over 5 meters high.

There is so much to see and do in the Hokianga you'll be wanting to come back again - after all Hokianga does mean "the returning place"!

For something completely different visit Ngawha Springs and experience the thermal hot pools - about an hour away.

Opononi is one of those places where it is just great to get some fish and chips, walk across the road to the beach and watch the sun set! And the fish and chips are very good!

  • Amazing view, and very quiet location

    Amazing view, and very quiet location. We enjoyed taking the shortcut and walking to the store/cafe etc. People were friendly and relaxed. A great place to go to totally chill out. We didn't realise the beach was stony, so not ideal as a 'beach' holiday, (not a lot of open beach area to swim or lie in the sun) but enjoyed swimming over at the dunes- definitely worth it! A lovely spot, the house was clean and tidy, and we made good use of the deck watching incredible sunsets.

    Owner/manager responds:

    So glad you enjoyed your stay. Shame you didn't stroll either left or right along the beach from your location ( which at low tide is rocky) but the beaches are well known for the swimming and bathing either across from the caravan park onwards or Omapere to your left, Sorry that part of your holiday was spoilt.
