Spectacular views from this modern beach house with all amenities. This is set up as a home away from home, with stunning harbour and sea views from every room. We'd describe this beach house as comfortable - not flashy.

It's located high up on the ridge with an expansive sea vista out to the Barrier Islands and Pakiri beach, with the Coromandel in the far distance. The local beaches are just minutes away and easily within walking distance. Set well above the road, this very private property offers total peace and quiet, with a feeling of being "King of the Castle". You can look down on everyone else, but nobody can look in on you ! Surrounded by native bush on three sides, the panaromic view directly in front is simply stunning !

Outdoor furniture for eight on the huge decks makes for a great indoor/outdoor flow, and the 200 degree views out over the bay will likely keep you in one of the deck chairs for hours. In the summer, we have a gas BBQ available to guests to use at their leisure. Winter time brings a cosy log fire and games inside.

Our on-line guest book confirms this is an absolute dream holiday home, and one of the very best beach houses in New Zealand. As bach owners for more than a decade, we endeavour to make your booking process easy, and we pride ourselves on the high level of detail in all communications.

This is one of the most popular baches in the country, and there's a reason for that - word of mouth and Book-a-Bach are the only advertising media we've ever needed. The level of repeat guests continues to astound us, and we genuinely enjoy sharing this piece of paradise with others from around the world.

Come and experience this truly awesome property, and you'll find it's addictive. Don't be surprised if you find yourself coming back again and again !

    The house is located on a ridge overlooking the beach; the view from the deck is stunning! There's a small, very private garden one part of which is completely closed off which is great for small children. Overall, we had a great experience and definitely plan to come back. The only small drawback is that the house is a bit run-down (i.e. the BBQ was rusty and unusable, the roof is leaky in some places).

  • Delightful and cosy with amazing views

    Delightful and cosy with amazing views. We spent a couple nights and it was delightful. The Bach really fits the view and the beach. There’s a fireplace which made us nice and cosy specially upstairs bedroom, where the kiddies slept. We will recommend and be staying again ?? thanks for having us!

  • We had the perfect family getaway weekend

    We had the perfect family getaway weekend. The views are just amazing and the house had everything we needed; tidy, but still homely and comfortable. The log fire kept us beautifully warm on some very cold nights. Thanks for the stay!
