Beautiful Whitianga offers the luxuries of the city... and the benefits of seaside living.

Our treasured Bach is ideal for couples or families with children. It is romantic when it needs to be, and practical with a fully fenced 1/4 acre flat section.

For those who are water babies, or like water activities like jet skiing, water-skiing, fishing or touring out beautiful coast this Bach has it all! The boat ramp is just up the road, and a cruise out to the ocean a leisurely 10 minute (5 knot) jaunt. It is also free and very rarely busy compared to the main wharf.

A short ferry ride to cooks beach is well worth doing.

A drive along to Whangapoua to do the stunning walk (20 min) to New Chums is 35 minutes drive away.

JetSki hire, banana boats, wind surfer, kayak hire, fishing tours and sightseeing for everyone all at the door step.the information office in town has a wonderful variety of options- very helpful staff.

If the days so active you need a pamper or hot pool soak visit the Lost Springs for any pamper treatment you deserve!

The dining in Whitianga can be as gourmet as a BBQ with butterfly chicken from the super market or gourmet sausages from the Whitianga butcher- match it with a fantastic smoked fish pate available from New World sourced from Coromandel Town... or if you are too relaxed to cook- a fantastic range of take away or dine in options available - 3-5 minutes drive, or a leisurely 10-15 minutes walk away - quintessential kiwi pub food, fine French dining (amazing!), beautiful burgers (No American chain’s here!) fresh fish and chips (consider taking and eating on the beach), or wood fired pizza...Indian, Turkish or Thai.

Your holiday here can be exactly what you need it to be in Whitianga.

  • Nice place with a huge deck and close to the beach

    Nice place with a huge deck and close to the beach.. we had a few rainy days here and lucky for the outdoor space for the kids to run around.. the kitchen had been well equipped for the stay and major supermarkets are a few minutes drive away .

    Clean and tidy bach, perfect base for small family. Short drive to town. A little surprised there was no washing machine though, sort of necessary when small kids and outdoor activities combine! Otherwise perfect.

    Great large deck and furniture, and fenced section good for kids to play. Bunkroom great for kids ( but a bit small if you wanted 4 adults in the bunkroom).
