About this Holiday House

The most homely bach on the most beautiful beach in New Zealand. Newly renovated deck, kitchen, and bedrooms. A few steps to an 8km long white sand beach lined with spectacular sand dunes, native birds, empty surf peaks, sand filled with Pipis, and more often than not, not a human in sight. We are the only road that accesses the beach. To the north is land protected by DOC and to the south is private farm land. Surfing, fishing, kite surfing, spearfishing...we are on the doorstep to a quintessential adventurer's playground. Also a great place to soak in Great Barrier's Dark Sky Sanctuary Status A classic bach/ barn most appreciated by families and friends who love big group meals, board games, getting lost in books or National Geographics, and lounging around after long days in the sun. No TV in sight but if you need "screen time" you'll appreciate we have some of the best reception on the island. Hotspot your phone and streaming Netflix is not a problem.) A genuine bach but it's pretty darn comfortable for what it is. This is our little utopia and love to share it with good people. Not a party house.

The only fly-in, fly-out beach on the island. We're a 10 min walk from the airport. Amazing burgers, pizza, coffee, ice cream, and craft beers are walking distance. If you're lucky, the most amazing reflection pool sits at the head of our beach access. See pictures.

Great place for families. New renovations have made some nice improvements but still a rustic option - but we like that! Great layout, plenty of space, location is perfect. Hospitable and friendly owners. Thanks for having us!

Loved our stay at Kaitoke Beach Barn - Great location close to the beach - Fantastic spacious barn - would definitely stay here again.
Great house for your Great Barrier Island escape. The house itself is open and sunny, the beds are comfy, everything was clean and tidy, a real classic kiwi Bach with everything you need. The location is epic, it's all of a 2min walk across the sand dunes to a lovely surf beach with hardly another soul in sight. It's a 5min walk to the burger shack which has the tastiest burgers and it only took us 10min to walk to the house from the airport. With everything you need located in Claris, and within a short walk away, such as the car rental, good coffee and pizza at Fat Puku and the info centre we found it a great spot to stay and discover the Barrier. Can't wait to stay at this place again.
