“We had a lovely stay, thanks.”
Beautiful views, a short walk to the beach and cafe. Kitchen was well equipped and the house was very clean. I wish I was there now.

“Great location and exactly what we were expecting”- Deryk, October 2023
“This bach was the perfect place for our girlfriend weekend.”
It was cosy and warm, eclectic and colourful interior design and plenty of room for the five of us ( plus 1 baby). It's a great place for a rainy weekend, loads of books and magazines, comfy sofas with a zillion cushions and a spectacular view over Bream Bay. We wouldn't recommend it for families with small children, lots of treasures to be pulled out of cupboards, high balcony and it would be hard to keep an eye on them in the garden.- Eva, May 2023
“Loved everything about our stay here.”
The most beautiful, fun and quirky home. It rained the whole time, but we were happy to stay indoors and soak up the beautiful surroundings. There was plenty for us to do- lots of books and boardgames for us to enjoy as a family. And the most wonderful view! The Waipu township was fun to explore. Great cafes and picked up a few goodies from the op shops. Will definitely recommend this house as a perfect little get away.- Aj, April 2023

“Lovely home with gorgeous views.”
We were all nice and warm with slightly cooler April nights. Great spot for a family getaway, plenty of space.- Lauren, April 2021
“Well equipped and located house, in a generally quiet street.”
Close to the beach and any other attractions (caves, walks, larger city...) one might want on a holiday. The house is quite extensively decorated, which provides some of its charm but also gives opportunities for items to gather dust and makes it more difficult to clean the house. In addition it also provides risk for younger kids to break or misplace items. There is a great outdoor space with beautiful views and providing all the comforts one could want to have a relaxed holiday. We loved our stay and will be back! The 2 layers of the house are not connected but that posed no issue, it actually worked quite well and our son (7yo) whom made it into his little ‘kingdom’ ;)- Fleur, January 2021
“Awesome spot overlooking Waipu cove, with views all the way along the coast to Whangarei heads.”
Its just a short walk up the hill from the beach. The house is well maintained and decorated. The beds are comfortable and did I mention the views...! Perfect beach getaway for the family.- Wayne, January 2021

Welcome to Waipu Cove Palm Cottage, an eclectic Kiwiana bach right in the heart of Waipu Cove! This four-bedroom home enjoys stunning expansive sea and island views over Bream Bay, with an easy walk down the walkway to the white sands and patrolled surf beach below. Grab your surfboard, go fishing, or explore The Bay with the complimentary kayaks provided! If you want to stretch the legs, why not venture along the scenic coastal walk around the many private bays to Lang’s Beach. Just down the hill is the Waipu Cove General Store, the iconic dairy where Rachel Hunter launched her modelling career! Enjoy an ice cream or grab the necessities for your stay. The Cove Cafe is also close for your all-important morning caffeine fix, evening fine dining, or good ol' Kiwi fish'n'chips on the beach. The historic town of Waipu is a short drive away with plenty to see and do, including the award-winning McLeod’s Pizza Barn & Brewery, or The Waipu Caves to explore the glowworms, stalactites and stalagmites. After a fun-filled day, you can stay connected with the provided WIFI, watch Netflix on the Smart TV, throw on a DVD, or check out the waves from the deck with a cold one, while you crank up the BBQ with the catch of the day. For a classic Kiwi coastal getaway, choose Waipu Cove Palm Cottage!
There are life-jackets available to use with the available kayaks, but we do recommend that guests bring their own well-fitting life-jackets to ensure safety.
