Absolute beach front and beside the safe swimming 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. (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!!!

  • Top location

    Top location...we absolutely loved being right on the beach. Few spiderwebs in downstairs bedroom but these were soon banished with the downstairs vaccum - handy.

  • A very special and favourite place for our family

    A very special and favourite place for our family. Absolutely fabulous location and the house is great, well designed for a relaxing time and appointed with all the equipment you might need. So great for families, my husband and older kids had a great time surfing, kayaking etc and the toddler loved pottering in the shallow water, something for everyone.
