Walk onto beach beside a safe lagoon. This bach is perfect for families with small children to early teens. Watch the waves, also river and reserve views. Bush walks, surfing, body surfing (boards available), kayaking (4 kayaks and life jackets supplied). Perfect for holidays, celebrations or just relaxing. Laundry facilities and modern kitchen. Gas barbecue. Plenty of games and jigsaws for wet days. Loads of books and some children's toys. Room for tents. (Neighbours on Bookabach too for larger groups)

We have a great water supply with an ultra-violet water filter system ensuring NZ water standard quality.

Surf life saving operating during the Summer. Little nippers club during Summer school holidays. Bar open from 5.30 and big screen for 'the game'!

Visit the blow hole at the south end of the beach on a rough day- awesome!!! Waimama reserve opposite- lovely to walk through the bush and pohutukawas to the next beach where there are rock pools and fishing. Nice swimming too in the more sheltered Waimama Bay. Keep walking over the hills to the 'secret special beach' and the cave, waterfall and ship wreck. Magic!

Only 15 minutes from Waihi, for gold history and steam train, and Whangamata for the boat ramp, golf, supermarket, and cafes, although the local shop does a good coffee too and has nearly everything you might need, including fish and chips at the weekend and holidays. Heaps of walks around the area. Stop in the Karangahake Gorge between Paeroa and Waihi. Explore the Coromandel Forest Park if you are more adventurous, but you probably won't go anywhere!!

One week is never long enough!!!

  • A brilliant house for families wanting to totally relax

    A brilliant house for families wanting to totally TV no stereo and only 1 shop! We come here often with different friends and are blown away by the beauty each time. Weather was mild and swimming/kayaking alfresco meals were all absolutely delicious and fun. Can't wait to return in spring!

    Familys Inn is a very cosy (it was a cold weekend!), warm and accommodating Bach. We had 8 staying over a weekend of mixed weather and it worked very well for us. I can't think of anything that was lacking. The view and location are unbeatable. We didn't want to go home, we could have stayed for another week.

  • Great family place to stay

    Great family place to stay. Need to get the gardener/handyman in a little more often though.

  • Stunning location with gorgeous views, overlooking the lagoon and out to sea

    Stunning location with gorgeous views, overlooking the lagoon and out to sea. Lovely big deck and lawn to take advantage of the view, which could also be enjoyed from the kitchen, spacious lounge, and master bedroom with the perfect window seat. Very short walk to the local dairy / takeaways/ coffee shop. Well equipped, with books, games, boogie boards and kayaks. Had a great relaxing stay here. Thank you
