About this Holiday House

I have given and will continue to give full refunds if you can't stay because of Covid lockdowns. WINNER of Bronze in the NZ wide 'Best Setting' 2016 'Golden PIWA Awards' this elevated absolute waterfront property enjoys spectacular sea views to the Poor Knight Islands and the Whananaki coastline from nearly every room in the house. Set on 5 acres, fringed by pohutukawas and native bush along the shoreline this unique property enjoys two private beaches and its own mooring in a sheltered, all weather sandy bay. Breakfast at the outside table with sea views to die for, recline on the deck and soak up the all day sun, play volleyball or cricket on the massive front lawn, wander along a loop track through native bush to the point - a special place to sit and contemplate above the ocean, check out on a side track what was once a small Maori pa, walk down our private track with steps to the beach to swim, fish off the point, snorkel or dive for crays, take our two kayaks for a paddle around the bay or along the coast or take your boat off the mooring and out for a day's fishing. The fish and cray in the photos were caught from the offshore reef just out from the beach. Winter fishing is best here. We are two and a half hrs from Auckland, a little over half an hr to Whangarei and only 5 minutes to a great surf beach, 2 minutes to a boat launching ramp in the Whananaki estuary or 3 minutes to the local general store (no fuel). Our dining table seats 10 to 12. Tiled ensuite plus separate upstairs and downstairs bathrooms, 2 fridges plus a stand alone chest freezer. Fish cleaning bench, bait freezer. There is heaps of parking and turning for boats, cars and trailers. We charge a bond of $500 to cover any loss/damage.

Manu
Awesome view from the house and cliff, it can accommodate even larger group, friendly and good communication from the hosts, kids friendly my daughter loves to run on the lawn and warm house in early winter. Highly recommended
Andrew
Very blessed to have Steve share this beautiful holiday home with us. We didn't have the best of weather but the views were nevertheless amazing and the activities around the house plentiful. The owners will provide a detailed memo on things to do which is helpful. Beach below is very private. While it is shared with probably less than a handful of properties, we only caught glimpse of a neighbour once during our 4 day stay. Just be aware that the steps down to the beach does require some fitness so may not be suitable for all. There's no WiFi also so its a good time for the kids to detox! A great place to chill and unwind.
Hannah Donoghue
A spectacular spot to spend a long weekend catching up with family and friends. Modern, spacious home with a tonne of space for larger groups with a great deck to take in the stunning view over breakfast or a late afternoon beverage and expansive lawn for picnics, cricket and volleyball. Short walk to the private beach - safe swimming for kids and diving around the rocks for adults. Steve provided clear instructions on everything we needed to know and was quick to answer any questions. A++ - we'll be back!

The weekend rates apply to any public holidays. Mid week rates during the period February to December are discounted from the higher weekend rates. Winter rates discounted further to make it cheaper for smaller groups up to 10 people with $30 p/p p/n for the number over that.

The TV has freeview with a satellite dish or bring yr own Sky decoder.

Linen (optional) at $18 per person.

Cleaning $100 per stay

Dogs by arrangement.


Blankets/duvets provided on all beds as part of the general rental. Electric blankets not on 4 bunk beds.

Rental starts at 6 pm and ends at 2 pm to allow servicing between different parties. I don't mind groups starting earlier or finishing later in the day if the bach isn't being used by other groups that day (let me know if you want to do this).

I offer free cancellation if the weather looks bad . However, of the 9 groups I have offered this to over 8 years none have cancelled and 8/9 found the weather far better than forecast. A line of hills behind us funnels a lot of rain away so we are far drier than say Whangarei.
