  • Absolute beachfront with direct access to a beautiful safe swimming white sandy beach.
  • Swimming, kayaking, fishing, diving, beautiful coastal walks, surfing and more !

Modern 3 bedroom 2 bathroom absolute beachfront bach/cottage on the internationally acclaimed Tutukaka Coast (rated by National Geographic Traveler as one of the top three coastlines in the world - "Long stretches of sandy beaches alternate with intimate bays, cliffs, and deeply cut natural harbours").

The bach offers stunning views of beautiful Whangaumu Bay and islands from living room, kitchen and dining area. Direct beachfront access to a beautiful safe swimming white sandy beach. One of the three bedrooms is a roomy detached dwelling with ensuite and SKY/SatelliteTV. Living room also has SKY/SatelliteTV. Plenty of deck space on three sides of the bach to enjoy the sunshine with family and friends or gaze at the spectacular night sky. A flat fully fenced site fringed by trees and gardens that is ideal for children.

Enjoy awesome beach and coastal walks, swim, kayak (two on site), fish in the bay or off the rocks or simply relax on site. Explore the local beaches along the scenic coastal road, enjoy a round at the nearby Ngunguru 9-hole golf course (or have a hit on the tennis courts beside the course), and finish off the day with a meal and a drink at one of the four restaurants at the Tutukaka marina. If you're feeling more adventurous, take your surfboard out at one of the nearby surfing spots like Sandy Bay, go deep sea fishing on a charter boat or diving at the world renowned Poor Knights Islands Marine Reserve.

    The house is right on the beach front, situated in the middle section of the beach enabling views up and down the full length of the beach from the lounge and deck. The open plan lounge/kitchen/dining layout is great. We had a family of four in the main house with grand parents in the separate building (with ensuite) at the back of the house with level access between the two. The house is well furnished and the kitchen well stocked for entertaining. It was a treat to stay. We will return.

    This is a pristine, modern—but not fancy—bach, with a perfect location: quiet street with superb beach access and views over Whangaumu Bay. It's not huge, but was exactly the right size for our family of two adults and one young kid, with good facilities, easy to follow instructions, and even handy provisions like kayaks and lifejackets. We had an idyllic stay in a spot that feels remote enough to relax, without being too far off the beaten track. Highly recommended.

    Amazing location on a beautiful beach! We loved that it was literally a few steps from the front deck to the beach and the views from the kitchen /lounge area were mesmerising - I think we only turned the TV on once while we were there (and only because of the cricket!). The house is very tidy and well appointed, with handy separate sleepouts, which would make it a good option for two couples/families. Whangaumu itself is stunning with so many other great beaches close by - we will be back!

    the property is a little slice of paradise on earth: direct access on a beautiful beach - safe for swimming/kayaking - when you are there you don't want to go anywhere else and there is no need to! The property is so nicely looked after - nicely renovated cottage with all the modern comfort, there is nothing to want for as the property has all you need...we had a wonderful time there and hope to be back!
