Bach or holiday home, 0 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 5)
We grew up in Whangarei area and have always had a love with the beach. We love the lifestyle as we have a boat and enjoy going fishing regularly . We play golf and walk the many tracks in our area. We are also a short trip by car to the our city centre Whangarei ( about 35 minutes) We are also retired and have recently purchased a modern caravan so we will see more of our country New Zealand . We enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and would very much like to meet you.

Why MarkM871 chose Whangarei Heads
We choose to live at this property because of its closeness to excellent fishing grounds and easy to launch your boat . Choice of having safe swimming and also to be able to go to the surf beach and not to far to the main township of Whangarei. We have a large property to enable people plenty of room for boats .

We had a great stay at Mark & Barb's. The place has everything you need and is nearby to bays, beaches and walks. Mark also had some great tips for local places to visit.
Thank you for being the perfect guests. You are very welcome and we would recommend you to other bach owners.
Good place but difficult to sleep during a windy night
It's a great location and very handy to different attractions. Barbara and Mark, the owners are very nice and warm. The only thing we were disappointed in is the 'bang-bang' noise caused by wind blowing on the garage door. We could't sleep at all during the whole night. We already informed Barbara and hope it can be improved.
Thanks for the attention.
Comfortable and clean.Recommended.
If you want an awesome base to explore the beautiful Whangarei Heads this is all you need.Barb & Mark are great hosts.
Thank you for great guest. Absolutely perfect tenants. We appreciated you leave the property in such perfect condition so clean. We welcome you back and recommend you to other bach owners as guests.Pleased you enjoyed your stay in Urquharts Bay Whangarei Heads.
If you don’t mind an open plan sleeping arrangement then this bach has everything you need.
I would stay here again. Friendly, welcoming host, complementary chocolate and well kitted out with everything you need, including for ladies, a power point by the bathroom mirror. 👍
Would work well for a family or group of friends who want to enjoy the beaches nearby.

We have many easy walking tracks in our area. Must do is the 20 minute walk directly over farmland to Smugglers Cove.
The majestic rocky outcrop of Mount Manaia dominates the skyline, towering some 460 metres above the Whangarei Harbour. A vigorous one hour climb up through beautiful native bush takes you to the summit for breathtaking 360 degree views . Take your camera . This walk is about 15 minutes from our beach house. You can drive by car and park in the car park there. Highly recommend for everyone .
You must go to Ocean Beach great surf and beautiful views of the pacific.
Busby Head & Bream Head Track. From Urquharts Bay car park, its an easy two hour loop walk, takes you around Busby Head to Smugglers Cove, a secluded white sandy beach. The walk passes a gun emplacement at Home Point, built during World War II as a defence against possible invasion.
