Views from the lounge include Tiri Tiri Matangi and further out Coromandel on the horizon.

Safe swimming, kayaking, and fishing are all popular in the bay.

Travel time from Auckland City is 30 minutes north, it is a little bit of paradise amazingly close to a major city.

    Loved this place, great location close to cafe, pool and of course the beach. Mineral pool was great, glad there was no wifi the idea was to escape, the place was amazing. Hope to book again soon.

    This property is an absolute treat for those of us that love a bit of the "kiwiana" that makes staying on our coast lands so relaxing .. I hope this property NEVER gets sold out and continues to offer the iconic Kiwi bach experience for years to come. Only feedback for improvement is that Hubby would have loved an upgrade on the BBQ. :)
