Just steps to the beautiful Ngunguru Estuary, at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this surprisingly spacious and comfortable, fully furnished 2 bedroom, self contained property is your home away from home. We have thought of everything so you don't have too!

The interior is clean, open plan, modern and fresh, there's a full kitchen with dishwasher and gas stove & oven and is complete with everything you need. Towels and bed linen are provided as well as tea and coffee making facilities. The use of a small dinghy and kayaks with life-jackets are also available.

There's an outside laundry and shower block, loads of grass out front for tents, campervans, boats & jet ski’s, off street parking or just lounging around in the sun. NB: A walkway at the rear of the bach allows beach access to people staying at the property above.

We are situated near to a 4 square, café, hairdressers and the sports complex with golf course, tennis, Bar and Bistro. Only 7 minutes to Tutukaka with more shops and restaurants. At the Tutukaka Marina and Deep Sea Anglers Club you can arrange fishing trips or diving or snorkelling at the world famous Poor Knights Marine Reserve. There are several restaurants to dine at around the area. Beautiful Matapouri Bay and the surf beach, Sandy Bay, are just a short drive away. There are several stunning coastal walkways to explore in this beautiful part of the world.

The Ngunguru estuary at your door step provides safe swimming for children and fishing and shellfish gathering. There is a boat ramp nearby where you can launch your boat to explore the pristine Ngunguru Bay and Sandspit and Ocean Beach. There's so much to do on the stunning Tutukaka Coast you'll never want to go home!

For the quintessential kiwi experience, in a beautiful location, you won’t be disappointed.

    Thank you, we had a great time! The location is lovely, right by the water and securely fenced. The bach has all the modern amenities and is very comfortable. Our dog loved the lawn and thoroughly enjoyed playing with the local dogs. We would love to visit again!

    A very peaceful location with a lovely outlook. The house was very comfortable with everything anyone could want. A big plus was our elderly dog being able to holiday with us.

    This is such a great spot! This place looks quite small from the road but has plenty of room on the inside. One thing that stood out was that this place literally has everything you need. From dvds and board games to a fridge full of every kind of sauce and a pantry full of essentials. It almost feels like you're walking into someones house. Would recommend this to everyone. Beds were also comfy. One thing which isn't a biggie was that the lawns were well over grown.
