The neighborhood

The Kiwi Beach House is just a five minute drive from Opotiki, a small town mid-way along New Zealand's beautiful Bay of Plenty. The coastline stretches from the towering (extinct) volcano, Mount Manganui in the North, several hundred kilometres to New Zealand's spectacular East Cape, famous for its unspoilt beauty and world-renowned wines.

The Bay of Plenty is also an abundant rural area, combining farmed land with thick native bush. With its sheer natural beauty, magnificent coastal scenery and beaches, equable climate, gentle pace of life, and friendly Multi-cultural people, the Bay of Plenty is unparalleled anywhere in New Zealand. The region is also rich in Maori heritage, offering a truly unforgettable experience of 'real' New Zealand.

The Opotiki township is situated on a harbour inlet formed by the junction of two rivers. Bound by these rivers on three sides, the township comprises 309 hectares and the Opotiki District which extends from Ohiwa to Cape Runaway has a population of (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Census of Population and Dwellings for Opotiki District).

Climate

The Bay of Plenty is one of the sunniest places in New Zealand renown for its clear blue skies, consistent warm water and fine weather with over 2400 sunshine hours a year. Summer daytime temperatures frequently reach between 26ºC-32ºC, and in winter they average between 16ºC-18ºC with a succession of sparkling hot days and crystal clear starry nights. The climate can be compared to that of California, but here the air is fresh, clean and unpolluted from city smog.

Opotiki is the perfect place to enjoy all year round as the winters are mild and sunny and the summers are never too hot to stop you enjoying the outdoors. The town and surrounding coastal area is sheltered from the cold southerlies that are experienced in many other regions around NZ. In the middle of winter while the North Island's infamous Desert Road can be closed due to snow, you can be soaking up the sunshine and warm weather on the beach-side balcony of The Kiwi Beach House, sheltered by the southerly winds.

This is a great place for the outdoor loving person - anytime of the year.

Getting around

The House is situated on the Dunes Trail - one of the newly established and well-known Motu Cycle Trails:

"Suitable for the recreational cyclist or those of us who prefer to amble and take in the scenery! Take a picnic, stop and admire the vistas and enjoy what the East Cape has to offer - pure beauty."

Dunes Trail - easy, 19km

Motu Road Trail - intermediate, 78km
Motu Trails Mountain Biking Trails

"Suitable for adventure and mountain biking junkies who approach life with haste! Although these trails are not technically difficult, we recommend riders to have a competent level of mountain biking experience."

Pakihi Track - advanced, 44km

Loop Trail - advanced, 91km

Also nearby are thermal areas with delightful hot pools, bush country wilderness, national parks and defined walks as well as one of New Zealand's best collections of native flora at Hukutaia Domain.

Other things to note

Opotiki is the northern gateway to Eastland and is also in the area known as "The Tourist Diamond of the Pacific." The region offers numerous activities catering for everyone's taste all within easy distance. The coastline provides miles of safe swimming, fishing, boating, biking, loafing, or just walking, and there are numerous rivers for fishing, rafting, jet-boating or sailing - all on your doorstep.
Fishing

Deep sea fishing expeditions or day trips to White Island, a spectacular marine volcano, can be arranged through local operators in Whakatane. White Island is also one of world's best scuba diving destinations, offering a unique dive experience exploring the underwater steam vents. For the more adventurous, jet boating trips are easily arranged on the Motu River providing access to remote New Zealand.

We love our lifestyle living at Wainui beach. My husband and I are both fortunate to work from home and Airbnb seemed like a great way to share our beautiful home and meet some new faces. We are both well traveled and live with our 6-year-old daughter. My husband Phil is a keen surfer who has traveled the world in search of great waves, and rates Wainui as one of the best anywhere and without a crowd. Being able to stroll across to the beach each morning is a real treat, and another reason why we choose to live here.
