Search no further for your next family holiday destination. Matapouri is an idyllic beach town 10 minutes from Tutukaka, 30 minutes from Whangarei and 3 hours from Auckland. Home to one of New Zealand's most beautiful beaches, this spot is tough to beat.

This property is best suited to family groups (not a party house). With a fully fenced section, sandpit, swing and outdoor blackboard wall the kids will entertain themselves.

The main house consists of 3 bedrooms and a bathroom downstairs, while upstairs is an open plan kitchen/living/dining area and large sunny deck. Outside rooms include two sleep-outs, a quirky caravan converted into a double bedroom as well as an impressive outdoor hot shower, bathroom sink and two toilets. The garage has extra fridges, an additional freezer and a small bench area with toaster and kettle to cater for the outside rooms if needed.

Only 100m to the picture perfect, horse-shoe shaped Matapouri beach, 100m to the corner shop, 200m to the local fenced playground this location is unrivaled. Hang up your car keys for your entire holiday if you please, and you can explore the close by beaches, estuary, mermaid pools and local walks on foot. A short 10-minute drive will take you to Tutukaka which hosts a range of shops, restaurants and boating/diving/fishing activities. Play at the 9 hole, well kept, country-style golf course less than 20 minutes away in Ngunguru. Of course, simply taking in the serenity & enjoying your favourite drink from the comfort of the sunny deck or a lounger on the lawn is always an option too.

Retro themed and classically quintessential, this bach is tidy, cosy, well equipped and ooozes "Kiwi Summer Holiday". Loads of fun for a group, safe and spacious, our friendly bach is guaranteed to provide your family with magic memories.

    What an awesome time we had! The best weather, warm water, surrounded by family. We all grew up here and have absolutely loved all the nostalgia and memories this place brought back. The icing on the cake was all the small things that hadn’t changed. Thank you for the opportunity to come back here. We hope it will be possible to do it every year.
