Beach Holidays as they used to be - Great Beach, No Crowds, Swimming, Surfing, Paua & Crayfish Diving, Fishing.

Horseshoe Bay, a 400m Cove nestled adjacent to Hicks Bay is NZ the way it used to be. Small community, complete with local store, away from all the hustle bustle.

Be as active as you want to be - depending on the tide!!

For the serious fishermen the world famous Ranfurly Bank is only 30 minutes away from the safe anchorage of Horseshoe Bay.

Put your boat in the water at Waihou Bay (30-45 min by road to the north), enjoy a leisurely cruise around Cape Runaway & Lottin Point before anchoring in the idyllic Horseshoe Bay complete with easy land access via a wharf at the northern end of Horseshoe Bay - & then the Ranfurly Bank is yours for the taking!!

Check out the Hapuka & Kingfish photo on our website - 30 min steaming out, 45 minutes fishing & 30 min steaming back. - Took longer to clean the fish!!

    Our family use to live in Tikitiki close by, and we have always loved how remote it is and fully appreciate the rugged beauty of its landscapes. We also love the great fishing and kai moana available to enjoy and the unique places to visit. What we liked most about the property was the location, nestled in by the hilly cove of Onepoto (Horse Shoe Bay), with beautiful views of the ocean and surrounding hills, just a short walk to a beautiful quiet beach. Very relaxing and serene.

  • Location is wonderful and house layout is great

    Location is wonderful and house layout is great. It needs to be cleaner. We arrived cleaning was not wonderful and we had to vaccum floor and wipe window sills etc. Just felt needed a good clean. Many facilities needed some maintenance.Toilet not screwed to floor - so watch out! Back door handle not working properly. Taps in bath very awkward to use. Fridge door continued to open - so we had to tape it shut. no microwave. Overall house wonderful and in a great location.

    A lovely home in a lovely spot so close to a great beach. With 9 people (7 adults), we found the house spacious, comfortable and easy to stay in. It's a long way to go, but well worth it!
