About Kerry Starling
I live in Rotorua, at Lake Tarawera, with my partner Sandy. Because of this, I will probably not get to meet many of my guests staying at Tirohanga Dunes. I enjoy music, movies, English football and other sports, and holidays away with my partner in our camper van. We have 8 grandchildren between us and another on the way. I am originally from Otorohanga, where my parents still live, and I work for Rotorua Lakes Council as their Procurement Manager. I also have a property at Kawaha Point, on Lake Rotorua, called The Willows, which is available for short term holiday accommodation.
Kerry Starling purchased this House in 2006
Why Kerry Starling chose Tirohanga
This is a traditional Kiwi bach - reasonably basic, but comfortable. You will be required to bring your own linen and towels, but everything else is provided, and you will be right next to the beautiful Tirohanga Beach and the Dunes Cycle Trail. Guests are expected to leave the property clean and tidy, as they found it, as it is generally not serviced between bookings
What makes this House unique
Great fishing, including surfcasting from the beach. Walk through the back gate, across the dunes to the beach, or take the bike out the gate and start riding the Dunes Trail into Opotiki. Only 500 metres away are the biggest ice creams in NZ plus fish n chips and supplies as may be required, at the store in front of the campground. Check out the Two Fish Cafe for a coffee and cafe dining, when in Opotiki.

Awesome stay, easy access, exactly what Kerry said in his ad. Everything we expected and more. So nice to find this kind of price range still exists! ( own linen, clean it yourself, nothing too precious to wrorry about with kids ) Shame we arrived late and had to leave early cos you could easily spend several days enjoying this place.
A great retreat!
I enjoyed this little hideaway so much. It is an easy place to be with garden access to the beach. I’ll be going back 😊
Bach as described
A great stop over on our trip.
Tidy, as described, very close to the beach, lots of games to keep us entertained (however the chest is very chaotic! this is not a negative on the bach - I found the pieces we wanted and put them in the boxes but I don't know how long they'll stay there).
We loved our stay here. Perfect spot to rejuvenate. The property is clean and tidy but a little run down. Needs a bit of tlc, but considering the really cheap price, and that we could bring our dog, it's more than fair. We loved loved loved our time here, and having the whole beach to ourselves. Will be back for sure.
Perfect little bach
Little old school bach, perfect and super warm for a winter getaway. Loved it. And loved the fact I could bring my dog too.
Great Stay at the Beach
Very much enjoyed our stay - lovely property with amazing access to the beach.
There is a store in front of the campground, only 500 metres from the bach, that makes the biggest ice creams in NZ, and also provides basic provisions and fish n chips.
Check out the Two Fish Cafe for a coffee and casual dining in Church Street, Opotiki.
