Why AngelaR chose Whangamata
We have always loved renting baches in Whangamata, and after many years hard work, we recently reached our dream of being able to own our own property there! It is a unique family friendly property but offers everything you need, and all within walking distance of town, beach and marina. We would love to share our holiday home with you!
What makes this House unique
A large garden, complete with backyard, which contains extra accommodation including two retro caravans and 1964 Bedford Bus! So much fun for the family. Private fenced garden, off-street parking plus an outdoor fire. Memories are made of this!

Great place to stay
This property was a good choice for our large group to stay together. We had a great stay, everything was clean and comfortable. It felt like a home away from home and accommodated our large group well. Thank you, Whakatane RSA 8 ball club
We are so glad you had a lovely weekend, thanks for choosing to stay with us!
The property is beautiful and unique, the property manager is responsive and nice. Overall a fantastic place to stay when visiting Whangamata.
Thanks Samuel for your kind comments, your communication on behalf of your group was excellent.
Unfortunate end to holiday
Lovely location, property good until drains blocked and raw sewage came out of exposed drains around bbq area. On our 4th night we were unable to use inside toilet, shower or washing machine. Due to this we contacted owners and left property early. Owners refuse to communicate regarding a resolution. Very disappointing to have our only annual holiday cut short, ruined and out of pocket.
It is unfortunate this happened. The toilet inside the house was blocked - maintenance issues happen in all homes and it's so disappointing to us that this happened to our guest at this time. We were contacted at 7pm by our guest, who advised the toilet had blocked. We called them back within an hour and advised we would arrange someone to clean up the mess and try and arrange a plumber asap. However, upon this offer, the guest informed us they were leaving. We asked if they would reconsider & wait for the plumber to arrive to correct the issue, and we reminded them there was another toilet available to use in our alternative outdoor bathroom. However, we were told no, they had already packed up and were ready to leave - and wanted a full refund for the remaining 4 nights. We felt this was unfair given we did not have a reasonable timeframe to fix what ultimately ended up to be a very basic five minute un-blockage. We emailed HomeAway for guidance on the issue and informed the guest we were waiting for a response. While we waited for HomeAway (our contact waas on leave so there was a delay), a period of bullying commenced from this guest, and eventually, we refunded nearly 50% of the nights remaining as a means to end the situation and as a gesture of goodwill. It is a shame it ended up this way, but we feel we did everything required of a good host.
Funky bach in Whangamata
The house was great for us. We had 6 teenagers with us so the spaces available to use worked well. Angela, the property owner, was great to deal with. The location was awesome - 10 minute walk into the town centre and beaches and 5 minutes to New World. Top spot to stay.
Thanks Cath, we are really pleased that you all enjoyed your stay.
A Unique Place to Stay!
We loved the funky vibe of this bach and the thoroughly modern kitchen. The back garden is a great place to relax and my kids loved the video game consoles after a long hot day at the beach!
Thanks Cheryl for staying with us, we agree that the games consoles are a popular feature!
