At the end of the Okahukura Peninsula in the community of Tapora, we have created a comfortable and stylish space for friends and family to sit back and enjoy a slice of rural life and coastal life.

Okahukura Lodge is designed to sleep 6 comfortably. The bunk beds are actually King Singles. There is a power outlet on the garage designed for camper vans.

Pets are welcome on request, and an understanding of the conditions.

With it's close proximity to the Tapora Golf Course and the Kaipara Harbour, this is an ideal place for a relaxing break. A boat ramp is nearby at Birds Beach. Birds Beach is also recommended as a great windsurfing spot. Atiu Creek Regional Farm Park is 16km back towards Wellsford.

There are also tennis courts and a children's playground at the school down the road.

Less than a kilometre away is Tapora Golf Club, this is a family friendly course, and because it is on the sand can be played on throughout the year. Green fees are $10, Club Days are on Sunday.

$5 per night of your rental goes to support the Tapora Land Care Group

Special conditions: Okahukura Lodge is situated on a working farm. Livestock may be in the paddocks next to the house. An awareness and appreciation for farm animals and gates etc is required. The nearest shops and eftpos are located in Wellsford 30kms away. So you will need to bring all of your own supplies, and cash if you want to play golf. The last 12km to get to the Lodge is on a gravel road. Please note: If there are 4 or more people staying the $50 cleaning fee will be charged.

  • A lovely place to get away from it all

    A lovely place to get away from it all. The layout was beautifully designed and thought through. My daughter especially loved the cows and looking at the bright stars - although we had to hide the Frozen sing-a-long DVD! We will stay again for sure.

    Had a lovely night with friends at Okahukura lodge and would highly recommend to anyone wanting to get away from the city and chill out in the countryside. The house is fabulous (we decided one of them must be an interior designer as you could see someone had a real eye for design), they've created a really relaxing space with lots of interesting touches. Also really appreciated the treats they had left us. Thank you for a fantastic stay!

    Thanks so much for your lovely feedback. You and your friends are welcome anytime. We are so glad you "got" what we have tried to do with the place. And yes you are right, Brett has a real eye for interior design - me not so much :) Have a happy and safe 2016 Regards Natalie
