Once the home of the Opunake Harbourmaster during the 1930s this house sits on the headlands overlooking the South Taranaki coastline with Opunake Beach and Middleton Bay Beach less than 2 minutes walk in either direction. World class surf breaks can be seen to the south and a safe boat ramp is situated in Middleton Bay to the north. The town which has a supermarket, two pubs, surf shop and and more than one award winning cafe (amongst other things) is a 10 minute stroll along Pohutukawa covered cliffs. The house has recently been upgraded with two new bathrooms and dining room to make the most of the sea views and evening sunsets.

  • Cottage is awesome

    Cottage is awesome. All rooms are large (great for a family), love the 2 bathrooms! huge outside deck. The outlook over paddocks and to the ocean is beautiful. Quiet location. Handy to the Opunake Walkway and to Opunake Beach. This was my second stay and I would totally recommend it to friends and family

  • The cottage is lovely, comfortable and well-appointed

    The cottage is lovely, comfortable and well-appointed. It is very warm, the bathrooms are clean and pleasant and the 3 bedroom large. The location is great and has lovely views. We found the distance to the main eateries/shops to be too long for the children to walk to. My family misses Sky, especially Sky Sport, and Wifi when we are away from home. But we had a fabulous week and would definitely go back.
