Ocean Beach Retreat is located on the east coast of NZ - 2 and a half hours north of Auckland. Ocean Beach is renowned for its great surfing, many bush, beach, harbour and mountain walks plus diving for scallops, collecting mussels, fishing or just relaxing on the beach. You will often see dolphins frolicking in the bay. This beautiful area is named "The Whangarei Heads" and is a 30 minute drive from Whangarei Airport.

The bach is very spacious, architecturally designed and sits proudly on top of the hill, taking advantage of the beautiful views in all directions. From the kitchen bench you look down to the beach, with the Poor Knight Islands in the distance. There are stunning mountains to the right, where the 'gorilla' mountain sits and you can hear the Kiwis at night roaming freely in the native bush close to the house.

The house is warm and cozy in the winter with north facing sun streaming in from daybreak to sunset. There are heated tiles (and heated towel rails) in both the bathrooms and this heating extends out into the entranceway, acting as central heating.

It is a 5 minute drive to Bream Head which is the entrance to the Whangarei Harbour where you have calm seas, great for launching your boat, kayaking, swimming, fishing or just relaxing with a book under a pohutakawa tree. This is a great area to take young children with safe swimming.

    We enjoyed the spacious layout of the place, and the fantastic views to the beach and the spectacular landscape that surrounds the house . The house was well appointed and was very comfortable. The bach is located within easy walking distance of Oceans beach, and was very clean and tidy. A perfect stay all round.
