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.

Would recommenced to anyone. And to top it all off, there is even a great restaurant locally, 'Schnappa Rock' in Tutukaka. Love it so much might have to come back even sooner.....

  • We had a lovely 2 weeks at Sea Poppies

    We had a lovely 2 weeks at Sea Poppies. The Views from the bach are second to none, just beautiful and un-obscured. Impressed with the cleanliness and modern interior. We made full use of the kayak and the games available to us and were pleased to realise that Mobile phone coverage was fully available. It was a bonus that we didn't have TV. For once our children were happy to play cards etc. Lovely. We would definately go again. Many thanks
