  • Mountain and sea views. North facing and deck sheltered from offshore winds.
  • Easy access to the beach. Little boat slip for small boat or kayak. Great fishing.
  • Sneaky little beach bar you can use. Unique fresh water pool with slide and diving board.

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.

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.

Nb Contact me on 0274085414 for any questions.

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.

  • Loved the place

    Loved the place. Its a perfect get away place to leave the world behind. The views are to die for. Easy excess to New Plymouth.

  • The location

    The location .is amazing and the view spectacular. The only addition I would recommend is maybe a TV as when the weather is poor it would be nice to coop up in the warm bach with the telly on. I don't think you would need one in the summer as the coastline is amazing to explore but just a suggestion for winter perhaps. Do not get me wrong, we are still incredibly happy with our stay

  • We loved this place, studio was clean and comfortable

    We loved this place, studio was clean and comfortable. Definitely will be back. It was just exactly the experience we wanted, great views of the coast and the sea, in the countryside but not far from New Plymouth. Great base to explore Taranaki. Great to be able to have our dog with us and go for walks on the beach below and pretty much having the beach to ourselves. Perfect!! Fitzroy seemed loved the slide...he managed to go down it twice.. the 2nd time was from the very top..hilarious!!!

  • Had an amazing stay, could not have asked for a better location

    Had an amazing stay, could not have asked for a better location. Room was very comfortable and clean. Would only recommend another router so the wifi signal was very week inside the room. I would love to visit again. Thank you again for an amazing stay.
