About David Pooch
We live on the North Shore and have five adult children and eight grand children. We have had enormous fun over the years at the bach with the kayaks, fishing, lawn cricket and so on
David Pooch purchased this House in 1988
Why David Pooch chose Tawharanui Peninsula
We bought this place because it was right on the water, level for grand children to play and only an hour from home. We also like the fact that there is lots of bird life there. Tui, wood pigeon, oyster catchers, grey heron, owl and even kookaburra (true, they migrated from Kawau and you can hear them early morning and in the evening). We often hear kaka flying overhead too.
What makes this House unique
7 minutes drive to Matakana. Newly renovated, brand new kitchen and dishwasher, cosy and warm.

This is a great little property with a massive sense of space. Fantastic for a couple or a couple of friends. Definitely have to return because the weather was the worst ever, full-on rain all weekend. What delighted me the most was the kookaburras on the lawn & fences & in the trees in the morning - so big! Not to mention all the other birds. Clean & tidy, fully equipped, easy to clean & tidy pre-departure. I can't wait to return in warmer drier weather & get out in the kayaks, go swimming. Luckily we like reading & it was great to sit up in bed, at the table or on the sofa & look out at the sea & sky over the top of the book.
Bathroom could do with a lick of paint, bedroom furnishings are aged rather than chic & funky. I loved it, an authentic little slice of heaven in a place I didn't even know existed.
Yes there are kookaburras in NZ! Delighted you saw them as mostly they are heard but not seen.
Great place to relax
we had issues getting the lock code as the property manager was overseas and there was a glitch in the system so noone knew we were there.
Got it sorted, the bach is great and in a beautiful place
Thanks for that and problem sorted. We are home again now so should all be OK now.
Fabulous break from the city
We stayed 3 nights during the school holidays with our two young boys. We all absolutely loved our stay and will definitely be back. My highlights - that view out of the windows, the peace and quiet while sitting on the deck, the electric blankets and heat pump that made it warm and toasty (as it was winter), and lots of easy trips to explore stunning beaches, rock pools and bush. The boys highlights - a beach and playground right there, SKY TV (!), bird spotting from the dining room table, and sleeping in a big comfy bed. Thank you! We look forward to returning.
That's great. Welcome back again any time
Was really awesome spot for me and the 3 boys. Was clean and comfy.
Will definitely be coming back
