Close to the beach, this bach has been updated for indoor / outdoor flow. With bi-fold doors leading out to a huge north facing deck, it’s the ideal place to have all your meals and a wine or two in the evening.
It is very spacious inside with plenty of room to keeps the kids entertained if wet. A fully stocked bookcase and games cupboard (Monopoly, Cludo, cards and more) will entertain the kids.
Only one and a half hours drive from Auckland this family bach is a great place to relax with the family. A dairy round the corner and cafe a short walk away means you won’t need to leave the area. But if you do decide to eat out, the historic township of Waipu (with its popular Pizza Barn) is only 10 minutes drive away. Ruakaka Township, complete with supermarket, pharmacy and cafes, take outs is only a short 5 minute drive.
Ruakaka Beach has beautiful fine white sand that is patrolled over summer. Spend time swimming in the surf or enjoy long walks along the beach. The bach is close enough to walk back and forth to the beach. No “packing everything and the kitchen sink”, just walk down with a towel and boogie board.
Not suitable for crawling babies or young toddlers as deck is 65 cm high and has no railings. The property is fenced. Our bach is a true beach bach complete with mismatched carpet and loose carpet in front of the french doors after the renovations we had done.
