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 old, but it has everything you need

    The house is old, but it has everything you need. The location - and the views - are splendid. The price of the view is a steep driveway - its a great work out, and you will earn your glass of wine on the deck when you've walked up from the beach.

    Beautiful spot overlooking the estuary with the boats coming in and going out fishing, beach mountains, little Barrier and dunes; ever-changing; close to all amenities and fishing; beaches; cafes and restaurants; I would seriously recommend Dunes for breakfast! House had every amenity and the bed was very comfortable....Couldn't for the life of me figure out TV but who cares; kitchen well sorted.. two suggestions perhaps? and outside heater and cover above? plenty of firewood tyvm cu again cool
