An original 1970's beach holiday home. Known to Kiwis in the North Island of New Zealand as a bach. Owned by our family for over 25 years.
This is our favorite place in the world and we have traveled to a lot of places!!! No where is as amazing as Little Bay.
Spectacular views off the deck over the ocean to the end of Great Barrier Island and the Cuvier Island.
An original bach that is indestructible, its not flashy and fancy, its comfortable and practical. With everything you need to relax.
Sleeping 8 in the 3 bedrooms there is a great big bunk room at one end.
Its a 3 hour drive from Auckland, with about 15 minutes on the gravel road past Colville.
There is no TV, limited cell phone coverage, no shops and no where to go but the beach or a great bush walk in the surrounding hills.
Little bay is the most gorgeous white sand beach fringed with huge Pohutukawa trees.
There are great walks up to the top of the Moehau range of mountains.
For entertainment there is a Kiwi sanctuary about 25 minutes drive away in Sandy bay at Tangiaro lodge, there is a great restaurant, snooker table and air hockey and bush spa pools.
The bach is basic, with 2 fridges and a chest freezer, microwave and an outside toilet!!!! lots of board games, tonnes of books and lots of rest and relaxation. It has a bath and a great shower.
There is a BBQ and Kayaks if you have a vehicle that can take them down the beach. The beach is a 5 minute walk or 1 minute drive away.
We are at the top of the small cluster of houses so thee is no one blocking our view or looking at us. It is very private!.
There is parking for 3 or 4 cars or a boat. The beach has a boat launch area but it is for tractors only due to he deep sand.
Close by there are concrete boat ramps for 4 wheel drives.
If you want to experience what a very special limited number of NZ families do then rent a bach. It is a great way to take a real holiday.
This is a great home in a wonderful location. The modern, well-appointed house easily accommodated our extended family and the grounds and surrounding forests were great for all the kids to play in. The nearby beaches are glorious and Matakana has a great market. Highly recommended.
