Be transported to another time and place where the horses are still ridden road-side, where a friendly nod of the head will return a wave of the hand and a knowing smile. Stay in our truly authentic scuffed and weathered quintessential kiwi bach, 4mn walk to the beautiful Tolaga Bay beach and river, shops, pub and cafes. Iconic building in Tolaga Bay, modernised and comfortably furnished, fully heated in winter, fully equipped, up to 4 bedrooms with good clean bedding and electric blankets in winter, renovated contemporary large kitchen and bathroom, friendly hosts. Self contained, wholly equipped cabin to rent together with the bach for large groups or on its own for a cosy nest. Pets welcome on request. Large private garden with lots of fruit trees which can be picked in season, deck, bbq and outdoor furniture. Extra breakfast and table d'hôte with delicious cooking with fresh local and garden products available by arrangement (email tolagababe@ Or get back to basic and munch on fish and chips on the beach bought from a choice of eating out options. Safe swimming, kayaking and good fishing from the beach at the end of the street or further at the wharf. Launch your boat from the ramp behind the house or hire a local charter for tuna, snapper, terakihi, bluenose and kingfish. You can even swim with the dolphins on a lucky day. Try your hand at feeding wild stingrays (under the supervision of a guide). Surf the local beach break with a short fast wave, good for surfers of all levels, better for more experienced surfers. Hunting, historical tours, bowling club, golf course, skatepark and bush walking all within easy access. Gaze at the milky way, wake up early so you can be the first to see the dawn, or stay indoors wrap yourself in a book from the bach selection, listen to the ocean crashing waves or the absence of man-made noise, watch the world go by and appreciate a very relaxing holiday at its best. Oh happy days. This is Kiwi living, raw and real.

    Tologa Bay is a really beautiful part of the East Coast, really friendly locals as well. We loved the house too. It's set up really well and has everything you need for a long or short stay. Thank you for sharing your little piece of NZ with us.

  • Wow what a wonderful place to stay

    Wow what a wonderful place to stay. We will definitely come back and stay here again - a very well thought out place to stay. Lovely, light airy and was like a home away from home. A short walk back to the town and just a short walk to the beach. Will definitely recommend this place to friends and family. Thanks again Beatrice :-)
