About this Holiday House

Fancy staying in a new two bedroom house with panoramic views of Shipwreck Bay, Ahipara Bay and Ninety Mile Beach in the fabulous Far North? This is the place! Enjoy the beach by day, sleep to the sound of the sea at night. The safe beach for swimming or walking or exploring rock pools is a short walk away. An awesome spot to fish, dive or surf one of the country's best left hand surf breaks. Our house is one of four in a new subdivision with direct access to the beach. The facilities in the upstairs unit include external stairway access, a roomy open plan lounge, well-equipped kitchen and dining area. There are two good size bedrooms - one with a queen bed and en-suite, one with a double/single bunk. There is also a sturdy single fold out bed for use. If needed we could accommodate up to eight people, as two additional guests can sleep on the comfy pull out double sofa bed in the lounge. The large wrap around all weather deck lets you enjoy a BBQ, sit at the table/chairs or relax in a bean chair watching the sunset. You can even access the deck from both bedrooms! A nice warm outside shower is available to wash sand off after a day at the beach. There is ample off road parking for vehicles plus a small boat. All linen is supplied including beach towels. For a 1 night stay or a longer term rental option please enquire.
