This character recently renovated beach home is less than 100 metres from one of Northland's most beautiful beaches. Ocean Beach is just down from the Tutukaka coast, 2 beaches south of Patua. To get to the beach from the bach, you don't even cross a road, instead simply follow a 20m private path across sand dunes. The area provides a touch of old school NZ bach life, with numerous leisure activities including surfing, great boating and fishing, coastal walks though the nearby DOC reserve and a variety of additional beaches to accommodate every weather variation. Ocean Beach is only 30 mins from Whangarei or 2 1/2 hours drive from Auckland. This well equiped home has 4 double bedrooms (one with bunk and single beds) plus children's bunkroom, large downstairs living area and upstairs a games room with pool table, 2 new bathrooms and a large kitchen with features 2 fridge freezers and is set in a 1000sqm section with lush gardens. Enjoy great sea views from the top floor- you can lie in bed and check on the surf! One deck provides breakfast sun overlooking the sea, while you can BBQ on the rear deck to the setting sun. Great views of the reserve and Bream Head complete the tranquil setting. There is ample onsite parking.

  • Wonderful location 5 minutes walk from beach, with extensive facilities

    Wonderful location 5 minutes walk from beach, with extensive facilities. We loved the various decks for outdoor dining, the playground, and the pool table. Great place for 2 to 3 families to holiday.

  • Great house for our 2x families

    Great house for our 2x families. 2 separate living areas & pool table was a hit! House was clean & tidy - FANTASTIC playground for the kids -even a hidden treehouse: bonus!! The view from top deck was great, could see what the waves were doing. Only slight negatives were that it was a walk away from the beach (which was advertised so not a fault of owner at all), the dining table was dirty, and some of the beds were uncomfortable (others very comfy though; personal opinions may differ!)
