Overview

Photos and Description of this Mahurangi holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

Our stylishly renovated bach is super comfortable and peaceful. Looking over Mahurangi harbour and capturing the north facing all day sun. So close to the city yet within minutes you are in a beautiful calm haven and a relaxed state of mind.

Everything is yours to enjoy when you stay, including 2 kayaks that you can walk down from the bottom of the section straight to the bay for a paddle or a swim. There are plenty of short and wonderful walks, such as 10min walk to Opahi bay and also at low tide a 45min around the bays walk on mostly flat rock and sandy beaches.

Use your feet to get around to Jamieson and Opahi Bay, but you do need a car to get around further. Mahurangi Regional Park, also known as "Sullivan's Bay" is a short drive away and is swimable at all tides with a wide sandy beach and parkland to play in - great for children of all ages. Puhoi is a 7min drive away, including the famous Puhoi Pub and the Puhoi Cheese Factory and Puhoi River Canoe. Otherwise its off to Matakana (20mins) on Saturday for the markets and vineyards. Or Warkworth (15mins) or Orewa (15mins) to stock up on standard supplies from the supermarket, but best to bring all food items you might need so you don't have to go anywhere but here!

There are many board games, DVD's, Books and cards to while away the time, or cook up a storm in the full kitted out kitchen. Perhaps just soak up the sunshine and watch the Tui, Kereru and Fantail playing in the pohutakawas all day.

Special conditions:

For groups of more than 4 people (incl. children), we reserve the right to request an additional $75 cleaning fee (flat fee) and up front $200 bond, in the aim to keep the property in the best quality condition for all future guests.

Bond will be fully refunded when the property is returned in good condition. Any repairs or cleaning beyond what is considered normal and reasonable will be discussed and charged accordingly.

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$75.00 per stay); Linen (Required, NZ$50.00 per stay);

A lovely, cosy, well-stocked wee bach in a private bay with spectacular views of the harbour.

A lovely, cosy, well-stocked wee bach in a private bay with spectacular views of the harbour. Close enough to enjoy Puhoi and Matakana, but also perfect for staying put, enjoying the birdsong and wandering down the track to explore the beach at high tide... Recommend slapping on the insect repellent as the mossies or sandflies do like to visit at night. :)

The property and location was perfect and as pictured.

The property and location was perfect and as pictured. The only downside was that the river is not as easy to get to, it states a short walk but its a very steep mountain climb.

Sweet wee bach close to many Mahurangi amenities.

  • 4 of 5

Sweet wee bach close to many Mahurangi amenities. Lots of board games and a decent DVD selection for winter nights. Could possibly benefit from a stereo - or perhaps there was a way to channel through the telly that we couldn't work out? Lovely relaxing stay overall.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great feedback, and although we do have 2 types of stereo's the radio reception like the TV is mostly non-existent, but what I will do is update our operation guide to better explain the use of the Bose bluetooth dock so guests can link their smart phone's to it or leave some CD's to play on the Sony Stereo. Thanks again!

Spotless, spacious property in a delightful setting with stunning views. Enjoyed a very relaxing weekend at the bach. It really felt like we'd had a mini-holiday =)
