"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.

    Lovely little batch, it is so nice to turn up somewhere and find that the advertising photos you have seen are what you are getting! Was great going to sleep and waking up to the sound of the waves! Kids had a great time playing in the water and on the surrounding grounds. Location was perfect if you like the quiet, view was lovely.

    This is a slice of heaven. From the most fantastic view to the sound of kiwis at night. This property and the experience of being able to share this is not to be missed. I will most definitely be returning to this piece of paradise. A must visit.

  • The property is immaculate with a well stocked kitchen and comfy beds

    The property is immaculate with a well stocked kitchen and comfy beds. The location is stunning with absolute beachfront views through the Te Puna Inlet and beautiful landscaping. The bach has bifolding doors opening onto a large deck and stepping down to a gorgeous flat lawn perfect for games of cricket etc. Although the host house is nearby there is total privacy. We felt this property provided good value for money and we hope to return some day.
