Central to Kauri Mountain and Ocean Beach, Whangarei Heads and Mt Manaia the house is just 5-6 minutes drive to Parua Bay village in this area of outstanding natural beauty. The house provides a self contained peaceful, comfortable and special space to relax. Its the perfect place from which to explore the beautiful beaches, tracks and crystal clear waters that welcome you to swim, paddle and play.

Modern induction hob, oven, and all the gear you and your friends and family need to kick back and relax. The road up to the Tawahi provides unsurpassed views of Whangarei Heads, Ocean Beach and the Eastern side of Mount Manaia. This is a truly special place beautifully positioned to see it all and yet within just a few minutes drive of the cafes and shops of Parua Bay. The steep bush is home to Fern birds, Harriers, Swallows and you may even hear local Kiwis call at night. there are a dozen beaches within as many minutes and with access to paddle boards, kayaks and kit everything is here for you to enjoy everything the area has to offer. Its a truly special place.

Special conditions: Go a little quiet after dark and there's a good chance you'll hear the wild kiwis we have in our bush. Although the deck is fully compliant at almost a metre off the ground it is not suitable for very small children and caution is advised near its edges

  • What a fabulous location and place

    What a fabulous location and place. The accommodation was lovely and the scenery was breath taking. Waking up to the views around us was amazing I couldn't have asked for more. Fantastic stay thank you.

    You couldn't wish for a better vista, a great modern well equipped bach and fantastic hosts. Short drive for coffee or a beer at Parua Tavern not to mention all the various choices the Heads offers for walks or rugged Ocean beaches to calm inner harbour bays.

    Wow, "The little house" was absolutely beautiful, modern and tastefully decorated, very clean and very comfortable. Not far out of town, so grab your supplies because when you get here you can just kick back and relax in this peaceful setting, taking in the most amazing scenery by day and sitting with a glass of wine under the stars on the lovely deck at night listening to the kiwis calling. We just didn't want to leave. It's just magic.
