The lounge/dining/kitchen is open plan with the kitchen at one end the lounge at the other with dining in the middle, opening onto the large front deck creating a good indoor-outdoor flow.

This is a lovely bach with amazing views of Opito Bay. It has everything you need for a stay at the beach.

Stayed October 2021

A beautiful location. Perfect for unwinding and reconnecting with the beach. The beautiful tranquil views are breathtaking. The sound of the ocean is a wonderful way to go to sleep. Watching the stars at night on the deck. Walking to crayfish bay. Just perfect

What a spot. These views are epic. The weather was horrible the entire time we were away but it didn’t even matter cause we were cosy, warm and relaxed looking at the stormy sea.

Stayed December 2020

Only one thing beats falling asleep to the sound of waves gently rolling up the beach, and that is, waking up the next morning to the same sound knowing you are on holiday.

Stayed April 2021

One word: beautiful!

Stayed April 2021

Great location, views and a lovely home. We will def be back!

Stayed March 2021

absolutely beautiful spot, so peaceful and relaxing- the house has everything you need and there are some nice little walks and beaches to explore close by if you fancy.

Stayed February 2021

Lovely house with amazing views, especially in the main bedroom where you wake up to beautiful views of the beach. The living room is a great place to sit and relax too with large sliding doors which let the sea breeze through. The only downside is the very steep driveway which even with a 4wd can be tricky to navigate.

Thank you for your review, it's great to hear you enjoyed the great views at Lifes A Beach. We are sorry you found getting up the driveway difficult. Care does need to be taken with cars with low ground clearance. We hope to welcome you back again in the future.

Great view

Stayed December 2020

Simply stunning location, views and access to the beach. Very comfortable, clean house with everything you need. Views from the deck and the bedroom are amazing. We were lucky to see dolphins, and the friendly neighbourhood Bronze whaler. Opito is one of the quieter beaches in Coromandel - which is why we love it! We can't wait to come back again.

Stayed October 2020

Such an amazing location - the views are incredible! The house was perfect for our family of 4 - could not have booked a better stay. Will definitely be back.

Stayed October 2020

Beautiful space and beautiful views. Definitely will go back.

Stayed July 2020

Wow, wow, wow. What a beautiful holiday home this is. I booked for myself and 3 others for a birthday surprise and this place exeeded all of our expectations massively. It looks beautiful on the pictures but it doesn't even do it justice. The view in the morning is sensational, it is very cosy and just so perfect for a couple of night get-away. Even plan on returning, and I don't often return to places I have visited already!

Stayed March 2020

We absolutely loved our stay here. Very well presented and a view to die for. Comfy bed and really good water pressure. Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed October 2019

Opito bay is our favourite spot in the coromandel, the beach is absolutely beautiful and the view from the house is outstanding. We had everything we needed in the house and would highly recommend this place.

Stayed August 2019

Super cute a-frame home. We found the original bach interior very charming and comfortable. There are the most spectacular views of Opito bay/endless ocean from the living area and master bedroom. We enjoyed taking the kayak out and going for walks in the area. A really special spot that we’re looking forward to returning to.

Stayed June 2019

One of the sweetest spots during 4 months of NZ-travel...!

Stayed April 2019

Our holiday was amazing, the view from this house breath taking!! We will be back :-)

Stayed January 2019

Excellent stay. The highlight of our trip around the Coromandel

Stayed November 2018

Nothing but an awesome view and comfort-ability.

Stayed February 2018

A gorgeous location with outstanding views, very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay. It was awesome to have the use of the kayaks also, which we didn't get to use, but hopefully next time. Only recommendation is to replace the bbq.

Bachcare replied

Glad you had a great stay and we will let the owner know about the BBQ.

Stayed August 2018

We loved the location and accommodation was cosy with everything we were looking for in a typical kiwi bach
