  • Extensive views facing the Hokianga Harbour and heads - watch the sun set into the Tasman Sea
  • 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!

  • The location was beautiful

    The location was beautiful. You can't open the windows unless you want bugs because there are no screens. Basic coffee and tea but nothing else.

    Hi Diane, due to the ranch sliders taking up the full wall for the view and deck fly screens are not possible on those doors if you want to open them??.windows well...... never had a problem before. There is a full packet of plunger coffee on the side by the kettle plus teabags,sugar Not sure what else is required? Again not been a problem with other guests. Hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise.

    Perfect little spot for a getaway. Everything you need is there, but very handy to beach & shops. Private, amazing view, very relaxing.

    The property is superbly located but the weather meant that we could not enjoy all the facilities to the full. Very comfortable with everything you would need. However, the property was let down with a number of missing light bulbs.
