Our beach house is located on a ridge high above Tutukaka Harbour. It sits on an acre of bush, with good screening from the few neighbouring houses.It is situated at the end of the road, so there is no traffic.

The property extends part way down the ridge towards Oturu Bay.

The house is great for entertaining, with a covered deck on the sea side and large paved patio for outdoor dining on the western side of the house which captures the afternoon sun.

Beautiful beaches within a short drive include Ngungaru Estuary, Wellington Bay, Church Bay, Pacific Bay, Matapouri, Whale Bay, Wooleys Bay and Sandy Bay. All are safe for swimming; Wooleys Bay and Sandy Bay are also popular for surfing. Tutukaka Harbour is used by kayakers and paddleboarders, as well as yachties and fishermen.

There are also lots of interesting walks within a short drive.

Tutukaka Village and Marina are just down the hill. The village has a couple of restaurants - Oceans and Snappa Rock - as well as a pizza place and another cafe in the marina itself. It also has a good general store for groceries and gas, a surf shop, art gallery and a few other retailers. Fresh fish is sold on Saturdays in the Marina.

Diving trips out to the Poor Knights islands run daily from the marina, and fishing trips can also be arranged.

Whangarei is about 23Km to the west, and takes under half an hour to reach. It has a full range of retail stores and supermarkets, as well as movies and other entertainment.

    This is a beautiful, well maintained property that has amazing views of the Tutukaka harbour.. The hosts are very generous in their provision of everything from condiments, shampoo and firewood. Just a walk down the hill to restaurants, interesting shops and the marina, this luxury holiday home is ideally located to enjoy this outstanding coastline.

    The nicest bach we have stayed at. Great views, secluded and quiet, all the mod cons and a very well kitted out kitchen.

    We loved Oturu at Tutukaka, it is the most stunning home, with beautiful views across the harbour. It is an extremely comfortable property, and very easy to move in to & feel right at home. We lit the wood burner on a few chilly evenings, which made the living area particularly cosy. There is a nice area of decking, with outside seating, and overhead heaters. Only a couple of minutes drive down to Tutukaka, is an added bonus. A faultless house indeed..........
