What makes this Bungalow unique
Motupipi is known to our extended family and friends as a place of relaxation and peace. There is time here to sit and have a cup of tea or coffee, relax, chat, and also time to go fishing swimming and exploring. Many people come here so they can see the beautiful Bay of Islands, and realise when they get here that they just want to stay here and soak in the beauty and peace of the place. The bach is an old-style Kiwi bach, that has had some refurbishment recently to make it more comfortable. Come and enjoy it.

What an amazing place! The Bach is exactly how it is described with a lovely view, quiet place and warm on cooler nights :)
We will definitely be back soon!
We had a relaxing time enjoying the view and character of an iconic bach. Kathryn warmly welcomed us and brought down an extra blanket because it had been cold the last few nights. The The bach was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Going kayaking and meeting the resident stingray was an added bonus. Loved it!
Private, Peaceful Getaway
Lovely Little Cottage, Set on the banks of tranquilty.
Nice and Clean with great Views, our only downfall was we Could'nt stay long enough as we ran out of time :(
Thanks so much for sharing your little piece of heaven :)
Thank you very much Janette. We recommend a minimum of three nights if that fits in with the travel schedule and budget. We try to add in new features quite often (e.g. the new bush tracks) so there is always plenty to do without leaving the property.
Fantastic place to stay. A great location, made even better by Kathryn and her family. They were so friendly, helpful and generous. The place is the ideal getaway for anyone looking for some peace and quiet.
From the gratious hosts to the perfectly idealyic location, we had a fabulous time!
Great spot and wee Bach
Such a beautiful spot! Really enjoyed our stay - the Bach was perfectly clean and has a brand new bathroom.
The Bach has everything you need for a self contained stay.
Highly recommend if you want a quiet stay away from other holidayers. Being just a 15 minute drive from Kerikeri, it was easy to pop into town for lunch and dinner too when we wanted.
We enjoyed a beautiful kayak out to the islands, and watching the Tuis and Quails hopping around from the deck.
The property has a range of equipment and toys available, free of charge but by negotiation for safety reasons.
The local area, the town of Kerikeri and the greater Bay of Islands area have a wide range of historic and scenic places of interest. You may just prefer to stay by the sea and relax, swim, kayak, go fishing or take a bush walk.
