Overview

Nestled behind the dunes of Sandy Bay at an unbeatable beachfront location and with WIFI - welcome to Dal Riata.

Although Dal Riata is close to the beach offering uninterrupted views of the picturesque Poor Knights Islands, the design and landscape surrounding this fully-fenced holiday home provide plenty of privacy.

Modern, comfortable and thoughtfully decorated interiors flow seamlessly out onto the spacious outdoor living areas and sundecks, Dal Riata will help make your holiday in Sandy Bay a knockout. Whether it's a classic BBQ with your group, or simply kicking back on a sunny morning with a coffee and to enjoy the uninterrupted views of Sandy Bay you can't go wrong.

Sandy Bay is an iconic surf and swimming beach on the Tutukaka Coast, close to the amenities of the world famous Tutukaka Coast. If you ever decide to leave Dal Riata, you are within 3½ Km from Whale Bay (an idyllic picnic spot) and Matapouri (a well-known swimming beach). Tutukaka is the place to moor or launch larger vessels, wander the shops and cafes, or catch a diving expedition.

Make this seaside adventure one to remembers - Dal Riata awaits!

This expensive premium beachfront property did not meet my expectations . It was not as clean as I expected , a lot of things were broken . Doors and windows were difficult to open or close which I considered a fire safety issue. The studio-converted garage is substandard accommodation and should not be offered to guests

Such a stunning place. The layout is fantastic, and with outdoor living areas on all sides means there is always a sheltered place to tuck out of any wintry weather. Sandy bay is such a treasure.
