ICONIC KIWI BACH...
"Shuga" is a 1950's kiwi Bach which has recently had a spruce up inside making it a very warm & calm homely spot to holiday. Shuga has been passed down through the generations of one of Omokoroas early settlers - the Francis family - and remains one of the iconic Kiwi Bach's of its time! It is perched on the edge of Tauranga Harbour at beautiful Omokoroa. Shuga is the first home on ‘The Esplanade’, Omokoroa and has unobstructed views of the harbour and a HUGE yard to enjoy.

FAMILY FRIENDLY...
Omokoroa is a peaceful peninsula where you can relax, read, boat, walk, spa, golf or swim. Kids have a lot of fun on the old/new playgrounds over on the park and large park area. See the photos to gauge a few of these distances.

Tastefully decorated, simple and stylish with modern quality furnishings, this 60yr old family Bach has:
- 2 bedrooms: 2 queensize beds and 2 singles, made up with their own linen.

WOW! What an amazing place to stay, came with our family (husband and 3 kids) and within 10 mins of arrival they were out on the front lawn playing cricket. We turned the tv on once in a 5 night stay, spent late nights playing cards on the table and had daily games of cricket and petanque on the lawn. Superbly located close to the shop, boat club, beach and playground. The place was very tidy, beds were comfortable and it really had everything. Our children in particular have already asked if we can come back again for another holiday, so fingers crossed it won't be the last time we see you. Thank you Louise and family for a memorable stay. Kind regards, The Afoa Family

This is the second time we have stayed and you wont find a nicer place to be. The location is everything and you cant do better than this.

New Year was wonderful at the Yacht Club which opened to non members for only $10 each. We sat watching the sun go down on the water on a balmy night, drinking wine and eating beautiful King Fish.

The owner is wonderful which is reflected in the care and attention of the bach.

We will be back again and wouldnt consider another place in Omokoroa.

A home away from home but with the water and views.
