Description

Dream of a simple romantic weekend getaway or a family holiday with your pet? Our refurbished bach offers both simple Kiwiana style and comfort. Peaceful, private outdoor entertainment areas in sun and shade with pizza oven and bbq. Enjoy bird song, sounds of the sea and a lovely rural view of the rocky Bream Head hills. Keruru, Tuis and other native birds often visit us.

Ocean Beach is truly stunning and has lots to see and do. Life guards patrol in summer. Play in great surf, fabulous rockpools, white sands and dunes. The beach is dog friendly for most of the year. It's on the East Coast of the North Island, about 2 1/2hrs from Central Auckland.

If you can bear to leave the beach you’ll find several awesome managed coastal bushwalks close by. They take you through historic sites, protected reserves, beautiful native bush and rocks and loads of native birds including kiwi and native robins. A photographer's haven!

Drive back 5mins to launch your boat or kayaks, explore the harbour estuary, fish with the kids from the wharf or surfcast from your beach. Enjoy a leisurely meal around Parua, the local shopping area 10mins away. The estuary is great for little kids. A golf course is 20mins away; Whangarei City Centre 30 mins.

Explore the coast further North and you'll find other unique beaches like Kauri Beach and Pataua.

Our bach is (we think) loads of easy fun, very relaxing and has a good vibe- having a friendly neighbourhood helps too! We focus on leaving city stresses behind for a while. With the separate sleepout there's plenty of spaces for all.

We allow up to two pets inside our bach with you- ALL pets need our prior approval (vaccinated and flea treatments up to date).

Our property is fenced but talk to us if you have a particularly determined escape artist with you. Easy to tether your dog if necessary on deck under the covered awnings.

We hope you'll visit our little piece of unspoiled paradise soon. We welcome any questions you may have.

Special conditions:

Note: We have 1 separate Toilet and 1 bathroom containing a bath and a shower inside the bach. There is NO toilet in the sleepout, Please make sure your family is comfortable with this arrangement. We recommend an adult sleeps in the sleepout with children for this reason. Our family and friends have never found it to be a problem.

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition all guests are to: Leave the property clean and tidy as found. Wash and put away the dishes before you leave. Take away rubbish (don't worry- we supply you a prepaid Rubbish Bag and you can drop it off at Refuse Centre just next to Marina.

    This was our second stay at the bach, and was just as good as the first. The bach is comfortable and has lots to do (games, ping pong, badminton). It has a really nice outdoor area too. The kitchen is well laid-out and makes it easy to cater for a family. The hosts are very responsive and thorough. The location is amazing: Ocean Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches I've been to in the country --- rolling surf, warm water and golden sand dunes. Loved our stay, and thoroughly recommend this bach.

    A perfect balance of everything you need and nothing that distracts you from this slice of paradise. Amazing, friendly hosts! Can't wait for next time.

  • A rare find so close to Ocean Beach where dogs are welcome...

    A rare find so close to Ocean Beach where dogs are welcome and the beach is only 2 minutes walk down a picturesque pathway. The bach is comfortable and very well stocked with everything you need for a holiday stay, plenty of space for families and a lovely open plan living area. The outside area could do with some work but when the beach is a hop skip and a jump away that fades into insignificance. A great sleepout/games room for kids and absolutely stunning views of the heads!
