  • Beachfront property with uninterrupted views on a safe white sandy beach with swimming at all tides
  • Diving, surfing, golf, tennis, fishing, walks, cafes, boat ramps, horse riding, bowls within 10 mins

This special location offers an idyllic white sand swimming beach at all tides, with boating and fishing options from the beach, diving, surfing and a wide range of coastal activities all within a few minutes drive. Catch your breath, relax and enjoy this warm family home situated right on the beach.

Step onto the white fine sandy beach from the front of this beautiful property and enjoy the fantastic seaside environment without leaving home. This magnificent coastline is situated just 5 minutes from Tutukaka - named the 2nd best coastline in the world – with diving and scuba options just offshore at the world renowned Poor Knights .

Enjoy uninterrupted sea views, over the bay towards Whangarei Heads, where dolphins and schools of fish are regularly spotted. Laze on the outdoor decks with a book, try our puzzles and games, or catch dinner from the estuary headland nearby. Enjoy meals or a BBQ on our elevated patio table overlooking the sandy beach below and then relax in front of a warm fire as the evening envelopes you.

Launch your boat at the opposite end of the beach if you are after some fish out in the bay, or enjoy a scenic walk around the coastline via bush tracks and walkways to Saltair cafe at Ngunguru or Oceans at Tutukaka.

Try paddling up the sandy Ngunguru estuary in our ride on kayak, or fishing off the estuary rocks, both just one minute along the beach. There's a warm outdoor shower to rinse off afterwards so you can enjoy an all day beach environment. At day's end fall asleep with the gentle sounds of the sea breaking on the beach below.

From Tutukaka take a diving trip to the world-class Poor Knights Islands on boats leaving every day from Tutukaka marina. Locally you can play golf, bowls or tennis at Ngunguru. Drive along this superb coastline to nearby Matapouri Bay and beautiful Whale Bay. Surf is often up at Sandy and Woolleys Bays so it’s all ready for you to enjoy.

  • It was perfect for a family getaway

    It was perfect for a family getaway. Magical spot on the beach. Amazing views. We really enjoyed being there. Everything you need. Comfy beds, nice big kitchen and fridge. Loved the outdoor shower. Highly recommend.

    Lovely Bach with it's own path down to one of Northland's famous white sand, safe swimming, horseshoe bays. Sea Poppies is a very relaxing spot that gets all day sun. The master bedroom is on a private mezzanine with views out to the bay. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen fully equipped and the place was beautifully clean and tidy.

  • Bach is beautifully maintained and very clean

    Bach is beautifully maintained and very clean. It has all the amenities you need for a fantastic stay at the beach. The location is brilliant as are the views. I love waking up to the beautiful ocean sounds. The beds are super comfy and the furniture is great for lounging comfortably. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of dishes for large groups. We didn't use the ping pong table but enjoyed everything else. Thanks again Gail!

    Could not ask for a better location, gorgeous sheltered bay; we ran down the steps to the sea for a swim many times a day, as did the children and their grandparents. Expeditions around the rocks were also popular, and the sunsets truly spectacular. The bay and the house very peaceful and with a lovely feeling. A gracious, spacious house that feels like a home. Our favourite bach ever......

  • Magic location, very well set up bach in terms of cooking facilities,...

    Magic location, very well set up bach in terms of cooking facilities, layout, outdoor area and access to the beach. Only negative would be that the bunks in the back bunk room are not connected and seemed a little unstable. My 20yr old daughter didn't want to sleep on the top bunk!! Prob best for smaller children only and not adults.
