This is a little beachside cabin which at time of listing is not quite complete. Some finishing touches with paint and ramp access to deck to do. Fully functional though. Will list a bit higher when finished.

Cabin is off the grid so there is no microwave or TV. However it has all you should need. LED lighting and a small inverter to charge cellphones and laptops, Next to the cabin is a cookhouse/shower/flush cassette toilet. Two burner gas cooker with pot/frypan/cutlery etc. Small BBQ available on request. Good sink and benchtop. 10l/m califont and good shower. Flush cassette toilet. LED security lights. Comfy and cosy.

Right on the beach. 5 minutes from Okato township with a couple of great licensed cafes, takeaways and grocery supplies. Right on Surf highway 45 with a heap of good breaks.

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. Oakura beach 15 minutes up the road.

Pet friendly place. Well dogs anyway. We have two that might greet you and lick you to death. However if you bring a cat it may be on the menu.

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

Dogs are welcome if they are fully house trained and are old enough to not be chewing things. If you intend to have the dog sleep inside with you please bring their bedding and don't let them on your bed. (You'd be surprised what some people think is acceptable...)

Note that cellphone reception is a little patchy at cabin. Is ok a few steps up the road.

Please bring your own linen though it can be provided for $20/stay. Washing machine and dryer available up at our house.

Call 0274085414 for any enquiries

Special conditions: Please let us know if you want to bring a dog and don't let it in the cabin with dirty feet. Please bring bedding for dog and don't let them up on the bed at all. Any deposits they leave please dispose of. We would rather no kids. With the pond and easy access to the beach and the way OSH is nowdays it's just not worth the bother.

  • Awesome place to stay

    Awesome place to stay ... fabulous friendly easy going hosts, super considerate. The room was clean, cosy and warm and had everything we needed. Great location right above the beach, quiet and private. We were only there 2 days but left feeling refreshed and inspired, we'll be back for longer next time!

  • The property was perfect for us! A small cabin with the beach...

    The property was perfect for us! A small cabin with the beach just outside the front door, plus the amazing slide dropping into the pond (which we unfortunately did not use but saw the kids enjoy). It is a bit of a drive outside of New Plymouth, but just down the road into the town there is a lovely coffee shop and supermarket. Being outside of the city we also saw things we wouldn't have otherwise seen, and the views are always spectacular. We really enjoyed our weekend at this property!
