With uninterrupted views across the river to the beach cliffs, our freshly presented Kiwi bach is perfect for families wanting some rest and relaxation.

At the end of a no-through road, this family home offers low-key accommodation for small or large groups. Easy stroll to the river, shops & cafes. Five-minute drive to the Wharf or Blue Waters beaches.

Please note that it's not possible to walk to the beach you see from the front deck - there's a lot of scrub and a tidal river in the way!

The space
"Tukakahumai" is a fully fenced property with established fruit and shade trees and heaps of outdoor space. The house has: 1 double bedroom (1 double bed), 1 single bedroom (2 single beds, plus two trundlers), bathroom, kitchen and living room and a great deck. The house is very comfortable and fully furnished - your booking includes sheets, towels and kitchenware etc.

You can also request to book: a huge rumpus room with separate access. The rumpus room has bunks, mattresses, a sofa bed, small kitchenette & bathroom - for the kids or an extra family. This bunk room is very much "camping style" - we ask you to bring your own pillows and duvets/sleeping bags - we can supply bottom flat sheets. Ask us about our super rate.

PLEASE NOTE: The photos showing the bunk beds are for this back room - and are not available unless you ask to book the back room too.
