Cheap little room for unique Coastal Taranaki stay. Right on the

beach. 5 minutes from Okato township with a couple of great

licensed cafes, takeaways and grocery supplies. We have a fridge/freezer and single burner cooker. All cutlery provided. Little TV/DVD player with a selection of DVD's if the weather cut's up (no TV reception). Full bathroom.

Right on Surf highway 45 with a heap of good breaks if the one out front is not working. A little over 20 minutes to New Plymouth and 15 or so to Oakura with a great beach and pub. 50 minutes or so to ski field.

Point of difference here is we are not into it for the money just to meet folk and provide a service. We are pretty relaxed and you are welcome to eat with us if it suits both. Have a crack at the slide into the pool or head down to the beach bar and have a quiet beer or BBQ.

We have found it to much hassle for single nights so only take booking for two or more.

A few notes: The beach is a typical west coast beach and not great for swimming though it's ok for a dip at high tide in the boat race.

Update. We no longer accommodate dogs sorry. Just to many hassles with cleaning and misbehaving dogs. There is a great kennel not to far down the road though if your dog wants a holiday as well. Look up Coastal Kennels. Guests with a dog are welcome to stay in the alternative accommodation (the cabin) though.

We have alternative accommodation on site if you have a group. See other listing.

Special conditions:

Room has only a double bed but could fit a couple of kids if necessary.

Always a bit wary as there is water around so if they are little up to

you to keep an eye on them. We have a couple of very friendly dogs.

We are out and about a fair bit so you might have to let yourself in.

Room has a little fridge and BBQ available for you. Please do not book a stay here if you are the

uptight type or expect 5 star accommodation.
