Description

  • Broad views of Perehipe Bay and beyond to Doubtless Bay.
  • Bush walking track down to beautiful Perehipe Bay
  • Compact, functional, comfortable sun-trap

Booking a bach is tough. You’d like a great view for those relaxing ‘get away from the world’ moments … but also easy access to the beach for fun days. Which is more important?

With ‘Balcony on the Bay’ you get both … no need to choose!

An expansive double deck provides the Balcony … stunning views over the blue-green Perehipe Bay, out into Doubtless Bay. Watch the world go by … swimmers as they plunge into the calm, clear waters … fishermen as they go out to sea. Relax under the umbrellas, cook on the barbecues and breathe in the scenery under the warm Northland subtropical sun.

A four-minute walk along a bush track gets you to a hidden jewel of the Karikari Peninsula ... sandy, secluded swimming from a beach known locally as Perehipe Bay. A short swim or clamber over rocks leads to an isolated adjacent beach where few go. Man meets nature as dolphins and orcas come in to see what the humans are doing.

An eight-minute stroll and you’re on the 18km expanse of sand that is Tokerau Beach … long, easy walks … surf cast fishing … dramatic, panoramic vistas.

The well-appointed bach is compact and comfortable with clean, bright walls and thought out wall décor as well as effective recessed lighting. A sunroom overlooks the double deck into the Bay … great for catching the early morning sun with a cup of tea.

There are two bedrooms … one big and comfy with a queen bed, the second more compact with a twin bunk … ideal for two or four people. The sofa in the lounge folds out into a double bed, as does a sofa in the sun room so maybe six or eight could stay … you’d need to like each other a lot!

'Balcony on the Bay' is professionally managed. Upon arrival guests are greeted with a friendly welcome and a free bottle of wine.

There is a world to discover on the Karikari Peninsula … spectacular views … Fijian style beaches … nature at its most breathtaking … a championship golf course … a winery … explore from ‘Balcony on the Bay'.

  • Lovely view

    Lovely view. Good location. Homely. Clean. Bathroom tap over the hand basin needs repairing. Car park a little difficult to back out of it but it is negotiable with care. Over all we loved our stay.

  • Great location and beautiful views

    Great location and beautiful views. A basic batch but everything we needed.

  • The views from this bach is spectacular

    The views from this bach is spectacular. Easy to just go down to the beach for a swim and close to other nice beaches on the peninsula. The bach was smaller than it looked on the pics. Kitchen is outdated so if you like to cook, bring your own knives and frying pan. The futon in the living room is very old and nothing you would want to sleep in. Bunk beds squeaking but ok. BBQ very old. Nice, new outdoor parasol.

  • The location is very good and the views are truly excellent

    The location is very good and the views are truly excellent. We thought the property was a little tired, but still offered clean accommodation, which was professionally managed. Our 'visit notes/comments' seemed to duplicate previous guests and it appeared that these suggested improvements to date hadn't been taken up, which was a shame. However, beautiful quiet location with close beach access so certainly a choice for a quiet getaway without the kids.

  • House is in a great spot, lovely views and a track down...

    House is in a great spot, lovely views and a track down to the beach. House needs a few more utensils, glasses and salad/serving bowls etc but otherwise very comfortable. Karikari estate winery is great for meals and coffee and Matai beach was a favourite. Far North Dive was great and really helpful. Snorkeling was fun. Overall a great holiday spot for 3-4 days
