Whangaumu Bay has a wide white sandy beach which is safe to swim in and boats can launch at all tides.
Our family beach home is situated across a quiet no exit road looking over a public reserve and the water from the main lounge and living area upstairs. Upstairs also has 2 double bedrooms, (one with a cot), a bathroom with a shower over the bath, and a large deck with the BBQ and large outdoor table. This deck is totally secure for little ones.
Downstairs has another large lounge, with a mini kitchen - jug, toaster, sink and microwave. One of the three double bedrooms here also has a single bed in it. All beds are comfortable. All rooms open to outside. The downstairs bathroom only has a shower. 2 flat screen TVs show Sky. Wireless broadband is available on asking. The large covered downstairs deck protects an older lounge suite beside the hammock.
The tree shaded, fully fenced section has an outdoor toilet and shower with another hot water outside shower over a bath. The latter is heaps of fun to clean off sand and get warm again after coming home from the beach (or to watch for comets and satellites among the stars after dark!)
The trampoline has a safety cage and the small caravan is for small children to play in.
The other 2 caravans are of the older vintage but comfortable for sleeping odds and sods or for those who like the quieter morning sleep ins!
When other attractions call, coffee and more is only 5 mins away! Tutukaka has 4 restuarants, a few tourist shops and a store which also sells petrol. From the Marina go outon the 'Perfect Day' for a day's snorkel at the world famous dive ground of The Poor Knights.
Ngunguru Village has 3 more resturants, store, and the recreation centre with 9 holes golf course, tennis and bowls.
Walks and other beaches both flat and surf are all along the Tutukaka Coast.
We enjoy letting our home esp. to extended families. Over Christmas we prefer 5 to 10 day bookings.
