Positioned just a few minutes from Opua township, this light, well equipped holiday home has views to die for, but are far better experienced in person.
The 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom open plan holiday home is the perfect setup for families or friends alike. Natural light floods all areas of the house and the overhanging deck is perfect for any occasion.
Picture yourself sitting on the gorgeous deck enjoying a cold drink, surrounded by bush, looking out towards the ocean. With the beach just minutes away you're never far away from a spot to cool off and relax.
Each of the four bedrooms are modern, spacious and light. You're also only a 10 minute drive from Paihia and the historic Waitangi Treaty Grounds. As well as being just minutes from the Opua car ferry and a 10 minute drive into the famed Russell township.
Views, location and space. You can't get better than that. Make your holiday one to remember at Skipper's Haven.

WeeStayed April 2022
This holiday home has a great view, quite location, wonderful big deck, great kitchen and tidy rooms. There's six of us, more than enough space for everyone. A bit tricky to find the house as we turn into the wrong road the first time and second time at night. But no problem once you remember it. Only few minutes to Paihia. We all enjoyed our stay. A big thank you to the owner and Bachcare for a great holiday.

Lovely quiet property to get away from everything with everything you need a real home away from home
BogdanStayed February 2022
Such a great place to spend a weekend in that area. Beautiful house, well equipped, quiet location, lots of rooms, two clean bathrooms, large deck with astonishing view. I would definitely recommend to stay there with children.
MelanieStayed July 2021
Skipper's haven was really lovely. Great views, great space, well equipped. We stayed there in winter and with the fire and heaters it was toasty warm. Beds super comfy too!
SudeepStayed May 2021
It was an awesome experience and stay. The taste of the owner is exquisite in each and every thing and just loved it. Very spacious. Bach is in Serene environment yet close to Paihia Center.Would love to come again!!

Skippers Haven was a great location for exploring the Bay of Islands and was well suited to our group of two families with kids.
NinanStayed February 2021
Lovely property nestled in the bush close to everything and yet isolated enough to enjoy the nature and birdsong

JaeStayed October 2020
Photos really are true representation. Loved this 'no fuss' approach from this Property Manager. Messaging was timely and up to date. Recommend a stay. Our favourite was the deck, the smell of nature each night and the views across the valley to the waters. Thank you Bachcare - we'll be back

StephanieStayed February 2019
Great place to stay, just beware of the mozzies!
AllisonStayed February 2019
This place was tucked away in the forest just as we had hoped, with beautiful stars and a glimpse of the sea and vast views over the Paihia area. As you might expect in such a remote location, the gravel access to the paved driveway was indeed difficult to navigate - steep and with large gutters running through the middle, but we managed. The ants also came to visit us - in the dishwasher and master toilet, perhaps request a pest spray before your arrival. BBQ was a tiny bit rusty and the burners were covered in grease, so we didn't use it. Otherwise, place was tidy, beds were comfortable, plenty of pillows and games and kitchen utensils. And the Bachcare staff were fantastic and extremely helpful. Highly recommend them.

Lovely spacious Bach, private, great views
Anne-MarieStayed April 2018
A great property and good location if you have your own vehicle. We were a group of 7 and the accommodation was plenty big enough for us all to stay without feeling over crowded
