About this Holiday House

Quintessential kiwi bach located across the road from a beautiful stretch of Omapere beach. There is a track opposite the house leading directly to the shore. The house is great for groups and families. The 1960's kitchen has a full stove, french door fridge and dishwasher. The deck is fully fenced, perfect for young children. The house has an interesting past initially being a family home, and then operating as a cafe and backpackers and windsurfing school. The bunk room and master have stunning views of the sea and dunes. Downstairs you will find the original 1960’s kitchen, a double bedroom, as well as open plan living and dining and a little playroom for the kids. The fenced area to the front of the house is perfect for young children to play on bikes or scooters. There is also an outdoor 'beach bathroom' shower block to the rear of the house. Enjoy balmy summer evenings on the leafy deck or take a 10 minute stroll to enjoy dinner at the Copthorne Hotel.

This was so great- memories of growing up in the 50,s, 60,s, 70,s. So much equipment provided. Took time out to play board games, read, learn crafts. Loved it- extended family members recently moved here from Vietnam enchanted by an iconic NZ bach after apartment living in a big city. Thank you Sacha- everything so well organised.
Solid family home - lots of amenities and room for the larger family ...3 x toilets 3x showers...we had 9 of us so it was great no queues!! Also lots of books and games as well as a DVD player and VCR! Standard NZ television programmes but not really watched as too much beautiful scenery to take in the area. Nice family deck, bbq available (though didn't use), and grapevine with dark yummy grapes to eat. Stunning beach views and lovely safe water to take a dip (which we did) and take in the views of the Hokianga Harbour entrance...short walk up the road to all amenities...shops etc. A perfect place to take a break from the hustle of the city and put your mobile devices away (unless you are wanting to take pics). Safe section with fully fenced front and deck gates (great for the 5 & 7yo). If you are looking for something that is modern and plain with little character then this isn't for you - this is homely and definitely the essence of being a Kiwi. HIghly recommend for larger groups and those with younger children. Hope to be back for a longer stay next time...thanks Sacha!!
