Capturing the essence of a classic Kiwi bach, Joy Aroha is brimming with traditional charm and a nostalgic atmosphere!

This three-bedroom Papamoa holiday home, sits right across the road from the beach access road, inviting you to spend your days down on by the ocean making the most of this coastal hub.

Joy Aroha offers an ideal beach base that includes well-appointed open-plan living, and all the basics you need for a relaxed stay, from the must-have BBQ and outdoor dining area to the fully furnished kitchen for whipping up tasty meals.

Set yourself up on the sun-drenched patio with a cold drink in hand and make the most of the downtime you've carved out for yourself. There is ample room to relax and unwind, along with a fully fenced backyard for some family fun.

Or in winter, take your pick from the selection of DVD's and when everyone's agreed, throw your pick on the TV (for DVD's only) to unwind in the evenings.

Papamoa Beach is just across the road, willing you to spend your days in the sun and surf, and strolling along the white sandy shore. With Mount Maunganui less than 20 minutes drive away, there's a whole lot more to discover when it comes to local cuisine, shops, beaches, and hiking.

For your next break away, make your way to Papamoa and kick back at Joy Aroha!

Guest reviews for Joy Aroha

Stayed December 2021

Nice location, with easy access to beach and walking distance to beach. 60’s /70’s decor. No modern amenities, so a bit disappointed.

Stayed April 2021

Good size property in good location close to the beach, ideal for families with shops and takeaways nearby. However the property decor is dated with dodgy ceiling tiles in hallway that look like falling off and and noise from the road/passing vehicles was quite annoying. Plates/cups in pantry dusty. Property manager was well organised & kept in touch. Thankyou

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your feedback, Tracy! We're glad to hear you enjoyed Joy Aroha's ideal location and our local service! We're sorry to hear you weren't entirely satisfied with the property's decoration and the noise that can be heard from the street is is situated on. We will make sure this is mentioned on the listing, as well as ensuring we stay on top the pantry's cleaning.

Stayed February 2021

A real old school Bach. Perfect for little ones, lots of space and very clean. Compact outdoor area with an abundance of apricots from the neighbour’s trees. Perfect spot close to the beach & shops.
