About this Holiday House

Classic 70s Lockwood beach house right on the edge of the Hokianga Harbour. 5 minutes east of Opononi; one of 4 houses on a no exit road next to the Harbour. The tide comes up over the harbour flats and meets a river mouth at the bottom of the section, making for beautiful warm - and safe - swimming . Hours of fun for the kids! When they're done with swimming they can fish from the jetty at the bottom of the garden too! Stunning sunsets...cockles at low tide..boat launching from the bottom of the section at high tide...views to die for... An ever changing vista, beautiful in summer and great place in winter; plenty of firewood for the Kent while you watch the distant surf at the Heads from the comfort of the lounge. 10 minutes to Rawene, the world famous Koutu boulders round the next corner, and bushwalks and waterfalls only 5 minutes away. A perfect place to relax, rain or sun, or from which to explore the Hokianga; you will love it! Bedroom 1: double bed. Bedroom 2: double bunk and single bunk above. Sofa bed and single divan in lounge. Toilet in laundry on landing. Amazingly warm Kent fire, plenty firewood. No washing machine, no SKY TV, no internet. 14" colour TV, DVD.

Everything you need and in a beautiful spot. An iconic Kiwi batch.
We had an amazing stay and would have loved to stay longer. A typical Bach - clean, tidy, very welcoming and with stunning views! Tricia was awesome to deal with. We explored many places just minutes away. The locals were so wonderful, with many stories to tell and recommendations on what to see. Highly recommend a visit!
Response from Owner
thanks Anja - and I did mean to say - thanks for leaving the place so neat and tidy, I wondered if you'd slept in your car and eaten out every night! Do come again and tell your friends.
Teresa Johnson
Lovely homely cottage with wonderful views down the harbour, very generously supplied with everything needed to relax, sit back and drink in the surroundings. Enjoyed walks along the beach, watching the tide and the birds, only about 10 minutes from Opononi, short drive to the Koutu boulders. We were only two adults but I can imagine how much children would enjoy the shallow water in front of the cottage. Definitely one to return to, thank you Tricia.
Response from Owner
