  • Knock out uninterrupted views of the Waikare Inlet.
  • A short walk to Opua Marina and five minute drive to Paihia
  • Fabulous native setting

Gorgeous setting with enough room to park your boat. Set in 2000sq metres of bush, this lovely Lockwood Bach offers a perfect location for a lovely break in the Bay of Islands.

Easy access to the boat ramp for your fishing trips or a short ferry ride over to Russell for lunch at The Duke of Marlborough. Great for Bay of Islands sailing week or surfing at Elliott's Bay.

There is a fantastic cycle track along the vintage railway line and also some incredible bush walks along the coastline.

The house is full of character and does creak as it is wooden.

  • Cute little place in nice location, easy access with pretty view of...

    Cute little place in nice location, easy access with pretty view of water. Sky TV with movie channels and fast internet. Serena was very nice and returned our calls quickly. Negatives were shower faucet needed repair, couldn't adjust temperature easily, front screen door broken, problem with ants and 'creaking' in house very loud.

    Thanks so much Sue, great feedback and I have had the shower fixed and also the screen. Ants at this time of year are a pest and traps are out along with spray which is in the cupboard!

    Loved the house although it creaked and woke me up! Just needed to add we did not see any notes about the key!?!!

    Thanks so much for the positives. Key notes were in the house directory but easily done and now I have notes everywhere to prevent these things happening no worries

  • Location good

    Location good. Easy to find, & in nice bush. Internet & cable TV good. Property superficially cleaned which we noticed with our baby crawling around, picking dirt and different ppls' hair. Rat droppings in kitchen cupboards, including in cooking items, and smell of rat urine in kitchen. We left Serena a note about this but there was no effort to contact us . We were also asked to bring our own linen and take away rubbish. Not good enough when paying more than $500 for 3 nights.

    First negative on the cleanliness front as I engage the best professional cleaning company in the area. But noted and discussed with them. As away we were unable to respond to the note but the Bach has been cleared of all problems which is very surprising but due to being in the bush this can happen. I ask everyone to clear their own rubbish so this doesn't happen. Sorry that you were not happy.

  • Ideally located for exploring Bay of Islands region

    Ideally located for exploring Bay of Islands region. Property was in a great location over looking a small bay in Opua. Quiet and relaxing away from traffic noise. The ideal place to chill out and de-stress
