About this Holiday House

An absolute beachfront six bedroom property at Doubtless Bay in Northland New Zealand. Sleeps 12 maximum. Fully appointed with all modern conveniences. This family style beach house makes you feel instantly welcome with its beautiful tropical gardens and waterfront outlook. There's plenty of room for everyone with two separate living areas, two kitchens, six bedrooms, four (yes four) showers and four loos! Also two washing machines and two dryers. You can enjoy your meals on the deck outside and cook a bbq overlooking the ocean. On cooler nights there is a large wood burning fire with firewood provided. If its a family holiday you're after, the bunk room with en suite can accommodate the children. And there is a wonderful rock pool out the front where you can take your book while they potter about with crabs and starfish (and just generally keep themselves amused). Only a few minutes to Mangonui, Coopers Beach, Cable Bay and Taipa. And approximately 25 mins by car to Rangiputa, Tokerau Beach, Puheke, Matai Bay and the Carrington Estate Winery on the Karekare Peninsula. This area is an absolute treasure if you love the sea, historic New Zealand and well priced ice cream in a cone!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The view and waterfront location were amazing! And the size and many spaces of the house worked very well for our three families. The kids had plenty of space to run around and access to the rock pools was a bonus. It was a just a short drive to the lovely Coopers Beach and a great base to explore many of the Far North’s wonders. Amberlea and Brooke were great to deal with and very helpful and responsive. We will definitely be back!
This was our 3rd time staying here which shows you how much we enjoy our time at this house. A beautiful spot to explore the far north from, with the waters edge right at your doorstep should you not want to travel far. Great amenities nearby in the local Four Square, award winning Mangonui Fish shop, and the paua pie from Taipa just a couple minutes drive away. What we love is being within range of so many lovely beaches and lakes. Amberlea’s home suits our three families so well, where we each have our own room and privacy while the young ones take full advantage of the generous bunk room downstairs. The sunroom is a nice place to have a snooze, but the real winner is the top room deck. Whoever gets to stay in the master bedroom is treated to a gorgeous view of Doubtless Bay from sunrise to sunset. We have always found the owner Amberlea and her property manager Brooke to be thoughtful, good communication skills and making sure we had everything we needed. Amberlea has always been a pleasure to deal with and all of this is the reason why we keep coming back! Thank you!
Fantastic time during our stay here. It was a perfect property for a large group (we were 6 adults & 5 tweens). The house had everything we needed with lots of space due to the multiple bedrooms and bathrooms! Loved the new deck for afternoon and evening chill out looking out at the ocean. Brook was responsive to resolve a minor issue same day. Lots do do in the area. Highly recommended! We'll be back.
