Description

  • Panoramic views of the bay and the lighthouse from the couch!
  • Fantastic surfing right in front of the house. Only 25 paces away from the beautiful beach.
  • Warm house in summer and winter with efficient log burner. Sash windows & bags of charm

Castlepoint is a hugely popular destination renowned for it's dramatic landscape and incredible surfing. There is also a lagoon area which is perfect for more sedate water sports such as canoeing, stand up paddle boarding and smaller children. The local shop/tearooms are two doors away. They stock all the basics and do great takeaways plus L'Affare coffee. There is a golf course located 5 minutes drive away plus The Whakatiki- a great local pub serving great food. Fishing is a way of life with plenty of kaimoana including paua. Pipis can be collected just a meter or two from shore which make superb patties. There are numerous local walks which offer stunning views, ie climbing Castlerock. Sometimes in summer there is the amazing spectacle of the phosphorescent micro organisms which lie just underneath the surface of the sand. When you walk on the beach after dark they illuminate your footsteps- an incredible phenomena!

Castlepoint beach was voted number 5 best beach in New Zealand in 2014. It is beautiful and expansive and lined with Pohutakawa- classic New Zealand.

There is an amazing big sand dune at one end of the beach which is superb for speeding down on a boogie board.

Mataikona is a small settlement 10/15 minutes drive over the hill where there is an even bigger sand dune plus some incredible rock formations- not to mention rock pools and paua hunting at low tide.

Walk up the back hillside section of the batch and relax with superb views. It is one big playground for children and adults alike and is the perfect holiday spot to relax and wind down. There are two surfboards, boogieboard, golf clubs & surfcaster fishing rod available for you to use.

  • Lovely character bach, right on the beachfront and very close to shop

    Lovely character bach, right on the beachfront and very close to shop. Was lovely to walk along the beach to the lighthouse and also to Castle Rock. Everything we needed was there - hoping to return in summer!

    Awesome spot with views over the water to watch the sun rise over the lighthouse. We had two small kids who had a great time as well as some relaxed parents. Looking forward to visiting again.
