Stunning modern Beachfront House at Oakura Beach.

Family fun at the shore
You are now able to book for early 2022 and we still have dates after 23rd Jan available.

We have a complimentary SKINNY WI-FI Satelite package.

COVID related cancelations get a 100% refund.

This Beach House was designed for easy living with a modern kitchen and a roomy combined Kitchen, Dining & Living area. Great Sea Views from the Lounge area.
The side Deck is a private place for BBQ Dining or just taking in the view with a Glass of Wine in your hand.

We have had families stay and they have said that we have a great spot.

Our Beach House is a family friendly place to stay and is ideal for “Blended / Extended” Families or Families with several generations.

Upstairs is the typical Kitchen, Lounge & Dining area with the three bedrooms, en-suite & Bathroom for a family and if there is a third or older generation they are well accommodated for at the Ground Floor level. The Studio has a Double Bed, Kitchenette, Dining Table, Bathroom, TV etc with room for a Cot for the Grandchildren if that is their job.

Often generations find they don't get enough opportunities to really spend quality time together but @ 263 Oakura Road they can. The "oldies" can get their own Breakfast and cuppa downstairs in the morning if they want peace and quiet then hit the day with the rest of the family. Even good for an afternoon nap if needed but when they want to be involved with the rest of the family they have options both upstairs and downstairs where they can all be together.

Then we get to the Beach. Right across the road, it is a nice white sandy beach and is very safe for Swimmers. We have a variety of activities to offer, the usual Bucket and Spade for the young ones, Boogie Boards (we do at times get a real good Boogie Boarding Surf) and a variety of Wetsuits for those who can swim, a Canoe & Kayak with Life Jackets for the more adventurous, a Cricket Set, Rugby Ball and two 12 Speed Bicycles if you prefer to cycle to the Shops. If you want to add a “French Flavour” to your stay there is a Petanque Set or you can finish the day with a Table Tennis Challenge in the Garage, the choice is yours.

If the weather is poor, you want to get out of the sun for a while or you want to wind down the day there is quite a selection of Board Games in the study. There is also a selection of a few Dozen Books in case anyone finishes the Book they bought with them and want to start another.

Or if you have had enough exercise and want to finish the day with a Glass of Wine there is a Deck at the back of the House that catches the afternoon sun or and a sheltered Deck on the northern side with a nice view of the Bay, both have plenty of room for the whole family to enjoy the space. And there are a few Bean Bags to relax on anywhere.

The partially enclosed Deck on the Northern side is very Child friendly and safe. The deck has metre high solid balustrading which I would say is impossible for a young child to climb so just keep the chairs and table away from the railing and you have a great safe place where children can play and be seen by the adults from the Kitchen & Dining area.

If guests are adventurous there is plenty on offer without needing to load the family into the Car. Go over the hill and you are on the shoreline of the Whangaruru Harbour, walk up the Harbour past a couple of Beaches and you will find a great place for the family to dig for Pipi’s. Making Pipi Fritters on the BBQ from shellfish you have all dug up that day is great fun for the whole family.

Head South to the other end of Oakura Bay, around the rocks and you will find Rock Pools and a beach which you are likely to have to yourselves. There are some beautiful Rock Pools, pick the right tide and time and the water is warm and very safe for the whole family. These Rock Pools make a great photo opportunity.

Oakura Bay in Northland is a safe place, not a lot of road traffic, no Pub to attract the Pub crowd and when there is Surf running it is still safe to swim @ our end as the Surfers find the best Surf is near the rocks in the centre of the Beach. In the evening you are very unlikely to be kept awake by your neighbors, there seems to be a lot of respect in the Oakura Bay permanent and holidaying community for each other.

We supply an assortment of Fishing Gear and there are Life Jackets and a few Wet Suits to choose from if you try Kayak or Canoe Fishing (Occupants/Fishers need reasonable coordination and balance) but a good family activity is fishing from the rocks at our end of the Beach.

I should have mentioned the Night Sky earlier, being out of the city Oakura Bay’s night Sky has less light pollution and on a clear night the Sky is a great sight, so many stars. If you want to more than gaze at the stars there is an App for Smart phones, don’t have it yet myself but I believe you focus your phone on a Star group and the App identifies it.

And I guess for some in the family the best part is there are two shops and they both sell a great range of Ice-creams and fish and chips if the fishing is unsuccessful.

There are 3 close Boat Launching options; at our end of Oakura Beach if it is calm, a more sheltered spot is over the hill @ Ohawini Beach (do not leave Car on the Beach) or there is a nice all tide Launching Ramp further up the Whangaruru Harbour, we often use it and it is only a ten-minute drive. Also a good area up there for Water Skiing, Wake Boarding etc, it often has nice glassy water.

At the back of the Garage there is a Fish Filleting Bench should you need it.

The Lounge TV has a SKY Decoder with Basic Card, bring your own SKY Card if you want to watch Sport etc. the two other TV's have the Freeview Channels.

We have not included a "Cleaning Fee" as we expect the house to be left like it was when you arrived, i.e. Floor Vacuumed and Bathrooms clean . Any washing, Sheets, Towels etc can just be stripped from Beds and left in Laundry. You can though tick a box on booking and pay the $90.00 Cleaning Fee if you know that is your preferred option. Or If for some reason at the end of your stay you can't or don't wish to clean up at the end then just advise us and leave $90.00 on the Kitchen Bench, we would understand.

Extras: Cleaning (Optional, NZ$90.00 per stay); Linen (included) with $100.00 Laundry fee per stay for up to 6 Guests.


Minimum stay is 2 nights & there is less 10% for 7 nights or more and a bigger discount for a month.

5/5 Excellent

excellent communication
our stay was actually cancelled due to covid level 3 restrictions. Warren was amazing with his immediate response to any questions we had and trying to accommodate us right up t the last minute if we had been allowed to. Will definitely rebook in the future and tell everyone I see how flexible he was.

5/5 Excellent

Home away from home
Immaculately presented with all the comforts of home. Safe swimming and fishing directly across the road. Local fish n chip shop was awesome. Beds super comfy and downstairs self contained area was perfect for the teenagers. Owners were super easy to deal with, very informative and accommodating which contributed to an amazing weekend away. Thank you - we will definitely be back.
