Bach or holiday home | Bay of Islands | #1225
"Poukoura" The golden rays of a new day casts its brightness on the pillar of our dwelling. This is what this property is all about. A brand new bach situated on a private beach shared by the owners Ash, Michelle and their three sons. Access to two other private beaches can be made easily by foot. The house is situated on the historic site of the Purerua Mullet Canning Factory owned by W Mountain in the early 1900's. It is a short drive to Marsden Cross where the first church service was held in New Zealand. The township of Kerikeri is 25 minutes away where there is a wide range of restaurants, wineries, cafes and all the usual amenities you may require. Russell and Paihia by boat is only 15 minutes away. If you don't have a boat fishing off our floating pontoon or the rocks is always a lot of fun and you can be guaranteed to catch a fish whether it is small or large. A lot of fun can be had water skiing, wakeboarding and speeding around on the biscuit at all tides.

Almost reluctant to give it 5 stars as we'd prefer to keep it secret! But fair's fair, this is a wee bit of paradise and giving it a lower mark (especially with 4.5 not available!) would be doing it a huge disservice. It's a gorgeous spot - away from it all, but close enough to town if required. The bach is low maintenance, easy-come-easy-go, and the doors to the large deck will stay open from dawn to dusk. Ash has done a brilliant job of landscaping. We'll be back next year :-)
