About this Holiday House

This is an outstanding dwelling located in a unique part of New Zealand. Ohawini bay is immediately north of Oakura Bay 1 hour North of Whangarei Access is obtained by driving along beach at low tide. This absence of roads enables an absolute waterfront location and eliminates the constant flow of traffic endemic at so many beaches. Ohawini Bay is at the entrance to the Whangaruru harbour which provides a sheltered anchorage and easy boat launching. The beach is white sand and the harbour protection makes it ideal for safe swimming, snorkelling and water sports. Oakura Bay is a 5 minute drive to the south. This has surfing waves, grocery stores and petrol The area is relatively undeveloped and there are miles of isolated sea shore and bush clad hills in the immediate vicinity for light walking or mountain biking. For some more serious tramping the Russell forest with an extensive network of tracks is 15 minutes drive away. This coast is renown for the fishing and Ohawini provides a good departure point for all points from Cape Brett to the Poor Nights Islands Address: 159 Ohawini Road

Great place to stay. Close to the beach. Kids had a great time. Was able to use the kayaks. Left clean for the the next people. Maybe if everyone done this there wouldn't be a cleaning fee.

Absolutely beautiful location. Had everything we required and more. Clean & well kept property. I only had one down fall was you had to time yourself around the tides. Apart from that I would recommend this home hands down. Why it’s our second and definitely not our last time staying here. Thank you so much Judith.
Awesome place to stay, especially if you have kids as it is right on the beach. Neighbours are lovely. Owner is great with communication..Definitely coming back.
