The beautiful Bay of Islands is a destination not to be missed for overseas travellers or New Zealanders alike, and this wee gem of a bach is the perfect location for your Bay of Islands experience - nestled in Parekura bay overlooking native bush and the Bay of Islands itself. Whether you just want to relax on the deck and watch the comings and goings of the Bay or else get amongst the action and go fishing, diving or touring from your boat (safely moored on the provided mooring). Several options for an evening stroll over the hills behind or for the more energetic hike to historical Whangamumu whaling station, Cape Brett lighthouse or from Rawhiti over the hill to the magnificent white beach at Oke Bay. The beach below the bach is a 2 min walk thorugh a bush access path, very safe for swimming, kayaking or exploring. For the keen scuba divers there is wreck diving and the local dive company launches at the boat ramp below the bach! For the boaties exploring the islands and alighting to do the many DOC walks is a must! -.

Special conditions: Guests to leave bach as they find it or take the option of the cleaning service. Please be mindful of neighbours and keep noise to acceptable level.

  • This property has amazing views and everything necessary for a great beach...

    This property has amazing views and everything necessary for a great beach holiday. If you aren't familiar with the area, our tip is to take the ferry from Opua. We followed our GPS and ended up towing our boat down a very windy gravel road from Kawakawa. We ended up with 3 punctures!! Only other problem was the intermittent mobile coverage. We were sometimes able to get texts but no data unless we drove down the road. Forced us to really 'get away'! We would definitely stay at Maranui again.
