Rugby and the Beach!! Under an hour to the game then the beautiful beach awaits! The location of our beach house is right on the beach and close views of the estuary ensuring peace and tranquility for your stay.

The space

You have found the perfect beach house you were looking for! Our beach house is very private (screened from neighbours even) and is fully fenced. Pukehina Beach is a beautiful, quiet, pristine beach just waiting for you. Our house is located absolutely on the beachfront with the calm water of the estuary visible from the terrace on the other side of the house. There is a boat ramp very close by as well as playgrounds, tennis courts, a surf club, fire station for emergencies, a pub, restaurant and convenience store.

The water views from the house are spectacular - should you sit on the patio and enjoy the Pacific Ocean, or sip your wine watching the sun setting over the estuary on the terrace? Prices higher for holiday periods so please inquire before making a booking request.

The property provides plenty of space for family and friends with a modern kitchen, 2 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms.

Pukehina is the perfect place to base yourself for lots of sightseeing around the Bay of Plenty area - as the name suggests, there is plenty to see.

Holiday dates eg Christmas and New Year Easter and School Holidays have higher rates and longer stay minimums - please enquire.

WARNING: Past guests have been disappointed when they have to leave so book an extra day or two!

We really enjoyed our getaway at Uncle Tom's Cabin. We were amazed by the view of water (ocean and lagoon) on both sides of the house and we loved being right on the beach! It was very private but the locals we met were very friendly and helpful. We had a lot of fun eating and listening to live music at the Hippy Pippi (within walking distance). While the nearest town with a full grocery store and gas station is about 20 minutes away, Maggie gave us a great rundown on the area beforehand to make our arrival and our entire stay very smooth. It was a great spot to unwind and it was great to have so much space!

Thanks for choosing to stay at Uncle Tom's Cabin at Pukehina Beach. So glad you found it to your liking - one of New Zealand's truly old fashioned beaches! Hope to have you as guests again.

I love meeting people and enjoy making sure they are comfortable in my home and have everything they need, including privacy, but am happy to chat if that is what my guest would like. I love to travel and have been lucky enough to do a bit so know what is important when you are away from home. I live in our family home with my husband.
