Stunningly beautiful - not only is this a magic location, the house is the perfect blend of beach house and luxury, modern yet unpretentious, and truly relaxing. Sitting above Staffa Bay, you are just a stone's throw from Matapouri, Woolleys Bay and Whale Bay, three magnificent Tutukaka Coast beaches. No matter what the weather - glorious sunshine, stormy rain - the views are spectacular.

Like a good wine match, the house sits and fits into the environment seamlessly. Designed to capture the sun and views, the living area and bedrooms face north and open onto the front deck. The spacious master bedroom has a king bed, large ensuite (relax in the bath while enjoying the view) and large picture window. The garage studio with its own toilet opens onto a garden and more views! The open plan living area incorporates a very well equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge, with an open fire for the best in winter holidays. An additional outdoor area beyond the dining area is the perfect place to gather in the evening and relax around the outdoor fire.

The hardest decision you may have to make is which beach to go to today? Within a short drive is Sandy Bay (renowned surf beach), Woolleys Bay (great for boogie boarding, walking, swimming), Whale Bay (where bush meets the sand - an idyllic picnic spot),and Matapouri Bay (the jewel of Tutukaka Coast). Tutukaka is the place to launch your boat, wander the shops and cafes, or catch a dive expedition to the Poor Knights Islands. This is a fantastic place to stay while you explore the paradise that is around you. Whether you decide to spend your days on the water, at the beach, or lie back and soak up the vista from your lounger on the deck, the choice is yours. A word of caution - you may never want to leave!

    The house sits surrounded by a wonderful garden that flourishes in the Northland sunshine and provides the kind of sea views you can sink into - from the deck, the bedrooms and the window seat - just chill and enjoy. You have all the conveniences that make for enjoyable living by the beach (including indoor and outdoor fireplaces, bbq, nespresso, board games). The location is close to all the best beaches, which are special even by NZ standards. Great property, highly recommend!

    Amazing views and an absolutely beautiful property which had everything you could need. We felt privileged to be able to stay there and there was plenty of room for 6 of us. It was close enough to walk to both Matapouri beach and Whale bay but being away from the centre made it very peaceful. We even saw a pod of dolphins in the bay below the bach!
