Set a few minutes wander from the white sandy shore of Ruakaka beach, Coast Awhile is a fantastic four-bedroom holiday home that is just waiting to host the whole family.

This 1970's style classic Kiwi bach has just the right balance of traditional and modern to make sure this Northland stay is a knockout. The comfortably furnished open-plan living area that leads into a bright sunroom is the perfect place to unwind with a good book.

Opening out to the back outdoor living and dining area, this is the ideal summer space to unwind together. The kids can play on the large flat lawn, and you can feel at ease that it is fully fenced while you enjoy a cold drink under the sun. Better still, get the BBQ fired up for dinner!

Around to the front of the house waits a sheltered outdoor dining area, equipped with another BBQ, perfect for when you want to get out of the sun or wind.

Sleeping up to 11 guests, this home has a bathroom and two bedrooms at either end of the house, making it perfect for two families.

Tidy and inviting throughout, Coast Awhile offers your family or friends a slice of Kiwiana and space to feel right at home.

This sweet and sunny set up offers a relaxed home away from home. Hitch up the boat and travel less than two hours north from Auckland and you've arrived. There's plenty of space to park your boat here at Coast Awhile, and you're only a hop, skip, and a jump from the pristine Ruakaka Beach.

Kick back and relax on a cruisy Kiwi summer, or carry the two provided kayaks across the road and launch them at the river. Local's recommend it's best two hours before high tide! There are plenty of places to explore throughout the Bream Bay area!

Make your way to Ruakaka and Coast Awhile!
