Ocean Beach is only 30 mins from Whangarei or 2 1/2 hours drive from Auckland.

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.

  • The bach was in a great position and the bedrooms slept 9...

    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.

  • Fantastic location but the batch was very disappointing

    Fantastic location but the batch was very disappointing. Was not very clean, mattress underlays were dirty, BBQ gas bottles were empty and BBQ plates were greasy with old food, fridges had old food, freezer had old fish bait etc. Rain on the last day made steps slippery with green slime leading to three people slipping over with the last person requiring an ambulance to be called with a severe lacerations to an arm requiring micro surgery to the cut muscle. Steps and deck furniture filthy.

    We apologise that you had such a negative experience- due to the wet winter we had not been up to check on the Bach like we usually do.

  • This Bach has a really lovely get back to basics feel

    This Bach has a really lovely get back to basics feel. Brilliant location. Quick walk to the beach for hours of sand dune fun. Kids thoroughly enjoyed the playground out the back too. The fire was wonderful for making this winter getaway a warm cosy one. No technology (due to no wifi/3G) was incredibly refreshing and a great reminder of what loving life and what nature has to offer even in the cold! I would definitely book again soon. Highly recommend ocean beach magic!

  • What a gem! Stunning location

    What a gem! Stunning location. Love the easy (and safe) path to the beautiful beach. The house comfortably fit our two large families and had everything we needed. Didn't even put the TV on once! Kids were constantly amused with endless surfing, swimming, bush walks and playing in the sand dunes. We feel like we had a real holiday. Would definately stay again.
