Cute retro bach, set behind the sand hills of Tirohanga's Hikuwai Beach, on 3 acres of grass land. Fresh water hot tub makes for an amazing place to star gaze, or cool off in the summer months as a plunge pool. Google "Kiwitub." Property is 5km from the Opotiki township, which has cafes, sushi bar, supermarket, second-hand stores, movie theatre etc. Or the Tirohanga general store is around 1km away. (Great place for ice creams.) If you are into mountain biking the Motu Dunes track goes right in front of the property. This is of "easy" grade so great for most abilities. It is 10km in total but links to a loop of many different tracks, right up to the 91km full loop, for the ultra keen and fit. There are however multiple other tracks, including a few which are 10km or less.
It is now most likely that you will see a Weka, (small native hen-like bird) or certainly hear them. They are fascinating to watch and are very cheeky.
The region has some amazing places to visit. Fresh water swimming holes where some of the Motu Trails tracks wind through. If bush walks are more your thing, you will not be disappointed. Fishing off the beach can be very rewarding too. Or simply take a drive along the Pacific Coast Highway and explore the Cape.
Please note; I do have an on-site caretaker who has a seperate private area, but he is 150 metres from the bach. (Further than the closest neighbour.) Your privacy is my priority!
