About this Holiday House

Comfortable 2b/r bach - separate bath & toilet.On basement for elevated sea views. Short walk across road to dunes and beach. This was our Grandparents’ retirement home in the ‘50s. It’s nothing flash, but it’s filled with wonderful memories Family times, childhood fun Walking endless miles along the sandy white beach Catching fish, digging tuatuas Having great respect for the crashing surf Watching those glorious sunsets Playing cards well into the night Changing sea and sky in sight

Special Amenities

Approx 10km from Dargaville, a well serviced town, to TeKopuru village which has no services at present. 6km along West Coast Rd to Glinks Gully. All tarsealed roads to the beach. Short drive along built up beachfront road. Awesome sea and beach views from house elevated to best advantage. Drive up to the door, walk down to the beach across the sand dunes. Part of Dargaville Ocean Beach, this is the longest stretch of driveable beach in NZ, you can't walk the length in either direction and you will see more birds than people for much of the year!! Fishing is great, but ask for local safety knowledge.Tuatuas are a shellfish delicacy found at low tide.

Enjoy the longest beach in New Zealand stretching from Manganui Bluff in the North to Kaipara Harbour in the South. 3 hrs drive from Auckland, check out Matakohe kauri museum,(45km South of Dargaville) Dargaville's "lighthouse museum" where you will see a great Dalmatian gumdiggers' display and the Rainbow Warrior's mast. Many local treks & tours available.Check at the Dargaville info centre.If you want to see more than beach and surf,take a trip north to popular Kai iwi Lakes or (about 1hrs drive) to the Waipoua Kauri Forest to see 'Tane Mahuta',an ancient kauri tree.

ROBYN
Stayed at this Glinks Gully holiday beach bach last week. It was more than what I had expected. Its pretty big and very comfortable.The views from the main bedroom and the lounge dining area are absolutely stunning!!! To me the lack of a tv, or radio, and at times mobile phone drop out, was a bonus, meaning that we as a family spent most of our time talking communicating, and taking long walks around in the area which rarely happens these days. I found this to be a real treat. Lots of parking space behind the house, or down in the front. Your washing will also dry in no time, with those beautiful sea breezes. If you are in the area looking for your typical NZ beach bach, without all the trimmings, you will find it here. We have some wonderful memories here, and have decided that we will return in the future. Thank You to Dianne and Family for allowing us time in your beautiful home Regards Robyn, Wiremu ,Indya.
