Only a couple of minutes walk to the beach and beautiful views of the estuary from the front deck, this is a typical kiwi bach you will not want to leave. It is set up for families and is perfect for kids of all ages. There is an extensive front deck with views out over farmland and estuary and the rear of the property boasts a large covered back with seating, perfect for alfresco dining. The rear section is fully-fenced. Perfect in winter with a fire roaring in the spacious lounge and rockpools to explore at the beach.

Taiharuru is renowned for its fishing and diving, both off the rocks and in the boat. The estuary provides a safe place for little kids to swim. The beach changes day to day, with waves perfect for boogie boarding, or flat calm perfect for kayaking.

Parua Bay is a 15 minute drive and has a small shopping centre and gas station.

This is a perfect beach as a base to then explore the many beautiful beaches that Whangarei Heads has to offer.
