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.

Beautiful spot and photos here don't justify the charm. Love Hokianga and this is definitely a place will offer draw-dropping views, particularly at sunset and twilight! The place is warm and spacious for 2 or 4 people. 5mins to Opononi Four Square, this is right on the estuary very private only a handful of houses on the tidal beach front. The back section is a bit boggy but that won't be much problem as most of the time we spent on the big deck at the front looking over the harbour. Thanks Tricia - we had a great Xmas there :D
Response from Owner
Thanks Kent, I'm glad you had a nice Christmas in the Hokianga and thanks for leaving the place neat and clean. The sunsets from the house at this time of the year are just amazing. Come again! Ta Tricia

Good basic holiday home and value for money. Lovely views of the Hokianga harbour mouth and sand dunes.
Response from Owner
Thanks Keith. Still trying to get the TV back to working as a TV, I suspect you watched a lot of DVDs during your very wet, wild weekend, and I'm no techy...hopefully the next people who stay will sort it!
