An extensive search for a family friendly holiday home ended with our purchase of this bach. What sold it for us? The character 1970's style home with large windows that open up onto the beach a literal stones throw away? The expansive lawns with room for all the extended family to camp in shelter and privacy? Room to park the boat and toys? The child friendly lagoon only 5 minutes walk around the corner? The proximity to a great beach store selling epic takeaways and great coffee and ice cream? The surf club and children's playground five minutes walk away on a very quiet road? The public tennis courts? The blow hole at one end and a bush walk to a secluded cove at the other? The proximity to Wahi and Whangamata for shopping and supplies? Or maybe just the amazingly friendly community of like minded people? All of this and more. With a permanent population of a few hundred, which expands to less than a thousand over Summer, Whiritoa is the perfect place to unwind with your family, and our place is the perfect place to do it. An easy 90 minutes drive from Hamilton or Tauranga. Easy to get to. Hard to leave.

Special conditions: A $400 bond needs to be paid at the same time as payment in full for the rental. Please see the Rental Agreement for further details. Please note that we are in the process of progressively renovating the bach so some facilities may have improved. The pricing has been set to reflect the fact that some rooms may be in a semi-finished condition. We will accept bookings for less than 3 nights but at slightly higher prices.

  • We had a fantastic stay at this bach

    We had a fantastic stay at this bach. It is right across from the beach on the better end of Whiritoa and has amazing views across the harbour. The beds are very comfortable, the shower is great and sky tv with movies and sport is a real bonus. We will be back.

    Location is fantastic - just across the road from lovely white sandy surf beach. Classic kiwi bach - pretty basic but easy living with all the essentials - we had BBQs most nights on the deck and kids loved the big screen TV and Sky (why though when you have such an awesome view of the beach?!). Comfortable new beds gave a good night's sleep. Would love to stay again - very relaxing!

  • This is a great location

    This is a great location. The deck has wonderful views and is nicely shaded in the afternoon. We enjoyed coming home from the beach and relaxing on the deck with a cold beverage. The site is nice and close to both the beach and the lagoon as well as the shop. Ideal for our family! The beds were very comfy and sky tv was an added bonus. We would definitely come back!
