The Bach is only 5 -10 minutes walk to Mangonui village where you can catch a kingy from the wharf, and if they aren't biting, the World Famous Fish and Chip Shop will provide dinner. There's also a great selection of cafes after your day at one of the many magnificent beaches in Doubtless Bay. The bach is equipped with an electric stove, pot belly stove, fridge/freezer, auto washer and two canoes. A recent comment from our visitors book sums up their experience - 'A slice of heaven'. To view more comments from the Visitors book and some updated photos, check our Facebook page SettlersDream.
Also available for use are kayaks and waveski.
The Karikari peninsular has some of the best wind and kite surfing in the country but don't tell too many or it will end up crowded like Shippies with the surf. Choice of two coasts to surf with Ahipara is 40 minutes drive and Taupo Bay 25mins. Doubtless Bay is great for fishing and the launching ramp is one of the best in the north and so close.
NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);
