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 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.

    Great house for our group of friends with plenty of space and very comfy stay. The pool table and games were also great! Location was cool, 5 min wander to the beach

  • We had an awesome holiday at this Bach

    We had an awesome holiday at this Bach. The layout was perfect for our 2 families staying here, plenty to occupy the kids with the playground and pool table, plus a pleasant stroll to the beach. Hope we can stay there again soon!

    The bach was in a great position and the bedrooms slept 9 of us very well. We appreciated the 2 lounges and the pool table upstairs and the various outdoor seating areas. A shame some of the windows didn't open but was well kitted out and an excellent holiday home. Great view of the beach from upstairs too.
