The property

Recharge the batteries at this stunning three-bedroom hideaway, surrounded by native bush and birdsong, and overlooking the picturesque Whangaruru Harbour. Welcome to Bach and Relax! Wake up and open the sliding glass doors to let the ocean breeze in and create seamless indoor-outdoor flow between the deck and open-plan living room. Cosy furnishings and coastal touches create the perfect environment for everyone to relax and unwind. Upon arrival hook up the sunshade and enjoy the benefits of outdoor living offered by the north facing deck for the duration of your stay. Enjoy unsurpassed harbour views which take in most of the 1 kilometre long white sandy beachfront, the entrance to Whangaruru harbour across to Bland Bay and the Rawhiti Peninsula as a distant backdrop. From the front of the property the southern entrance to the beachfront is about 200m down the hill, where you can enjoy safe swimming at all tides from the shade of a large Pohutukawa tree. Or you can proceed less than 200m in the other direction to the end of Rapata Road, where there is a lookout over the Bay and a walking track down to the rugged coastline. On a mid-year getaway to the Winterless North, electric heating will ensure you're kept at the perfect temperature. Flick on the Sky TV with movies, lifestyle, and children's channels, curl up with a good book, or just chat over a cuppa as you admire the view out the windows. There is also complimentary WiFi on hand for posting your favourite holiday snaps! A fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar is ready and waiting for you to prepare some delicious sides to go with all your classic Kiwi favourites hot off the BBQ. Imagine chilling out on the sun-drenched deck dining with the family as the sun goes down. Bach and Relax sleeps up to six guests across three bedrooms, with the master bedroom featuring a queen sized Bambillo Massage Bed. A washing machine and a generously sized bathroom complete the setup for your family trip or retreat with friends and loved ones. Start your day with a coffee on the deck, then set out for a day of sunshine, sand, and salty air. Drive four minutes to Skips Fish N Chips, then head to the golden sand beach for a picnic! There's boat parking available here at Bach and Relax, with the local ramp just a four-minute drive away at Oakura Bay. Secluded, peaceful and boasting beautiful views, Bach and Relax awaits!

Access to this house from its parking area is via a stepped pathway of 57 steps. This may make accessing this property difficult for those with limited mobility.

As there is a retaining wall with sections without a barrier, all guests should take care in this area due to the risk of falls.

Please be aware the sleepout at this property is accessed externally and the bathroom is inside the main dwelling.

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.

About the location

Oakura is a family friendly beach, and is just a short drive from Paihia, but is a welcome alternative for those who prefer to stay away from the main tourism centres. Oakura Bay is a good base for those wanting to explore the many Department of Conservation walks in the area. Close by are easy boat ramps, and the beach offers a world of wonders for children to explore. Whangaruru and Bland Bay are also good holiday spots worth visiting.
