Bach or holiday home | Taurikura Bay | #6021
Absolute beachfront setting. Only 2.5 hours mostly scenic drive from Auckland, or 25 mins to Whangarei. Watch the Kingi's chase the sprats in the bay from your bed as you wake up. All tide boat launching ramp (AWD or4x4 recommended except full tide). Delightful 3 bedroom home in a quiet, private bay. 2 minutes walk to the general store and tennis courts. Lovely gardens. Decks on front and rear, giving views over the bay or up to the magnificent Mt Manaia, so no matter where the sun or wind is, there is a sheltered spot. Double carport. 10 minute drive to Golf Club or Ocean Beach (sandy surf /swimming beach with life savers in summer). Easy walk to local Manaia Club and cafe. Recently furnished and in immaculate condition. Safe swimming beach in front. Snapper and scallops 50 to 100m off shore, (scallops can be snorkled for) and pipi's in the next bay. A 12 ft aluminium dinghy is usually available upon request for fishing in the bay. Numerous walks (Mt Manaia, Mt Lion, Bream Head, Busby Point, Mt Aubrey, plus many easy seaside walks) and items of historical significance within minutes. Numerous art galleries within
a short drive. A beautiful area overlooked by too many who continue north of Whangarei.

Property was excellent - really well presented, clean and tidy with lots of Bach extras. Particularly enjoyed the fishing dinghy and tips on how to get the best fish in the bay and fillet them! Thanks for a great stay
We absolutely LOVED our stay here! We stayed with our two young children (4 and 7) and the property was so perfectly suited for what we were looking for. The view is phenomenal, I could have sat for hours staring at the gorgeous bay - so peaceful and serene, and the house is well set up to take advantage of this view from multiple rooms and the front deck. Our kids were able to paddle around in the water out front (which we hadn't expected), it was a really safe and shallow little bay (recommend waterproof shoes for protection from rocks though). The house was really well stocked with everything we needed including kitchen essentials etc, and the hosts were so generous they shared not one but two fresh seafood catches with us - which we so appreciated! Beyond this, the hosts next door were really lovely and so welcoming to our kids who kept popping over to play with the grandkids - such a lovely family/community feel. The location is perfect for access to some of the best beaches
Had an absolutely amazing time..was everything we wanted..great fishing.. beautiful area..spectacular views highly highly recommend..
