  • Expansive bay view
  • Historic traditional bach
  • Short stroll to beach

Welcome to Pen Bryn, the "house on the hill" over looking the majestic Whangarei Harbour.

If you seek a real traditional Kiwi bach, minutes walk to beach, uninterrupted views and all day sun, this is for you.

Fully self contained, this slice of history oozes holiday and is available all year round.

Situated in sheltered Urquhart's Bay on the Whangarei Heads peninsula, 35 minutes from Whangarei CBD.

Only 3km from Ocean Beach, famous for it's clean white sand, surf and sun. Beach patrolled during Summer months.

The surrounding hills and native bush reserves offer fantastic walking tracks, taking you to some world class views and serene beaches. Whatever your fitness level there's something for everyone.

The Whangarei Harbour is a large aquatic playground, perfect for fishing, diving, swimming boating and more extreme water sports. It is also the gateway to the outer Islands and an endless coastline.

Boats can be launched from most beaches and most tides.

Close by there is a tennis court and general store, affiliated Mania club, cafe and takeaway and boat hire.

At Parua Bay is a fuel station with gas and dive fills, a small shopping complex, medical center and salon, tavern, boat club, refuse station and golf course.

NOTE: There is limited off street parking for multiple vehicles/large boats during Xmas, just chat with the neighbours and they will ensure there is easy access for you.

This is not the environment to sit inside with video games, get out there, this is baching at its best.

Any time spent here will be too short!

    This wonderful property is very well equipped and extremely comfortable with awesome views over the Bay and harbour entrance. The open fire was just perfect as the weather during our stay was wet and cold. We loved the décor and information displayed on the history of Pen Bryn and the settlers of the area and the many interesting and informative books in the bookcase. We highly recommend and would visit again.

    Amazing view and location! The house is comfortable, with an old school kiwi bach feel. Comfortable beds and well equipped. Just beware of the steep driveway!
