Opononi - Enjoy breathtaking views and ultimate relaxation

Beachfront holiday home with kitchen and balcony
Hop across the road to fish or explore the shoreline from this well equipped home away from home. Alternatively stretch out on the couch with a glass of wine and indulge in the breathtaking seascape and dramatic golden sand mountains . You may spot Orca whales, see gulls diving on schools of fish or watch the Waka Ama / Outrigger Canoe 'teams practising in the harbour. Use the telescope to spot the famous Maori Pou (totem) who guards the harbour! If you tire of watching sea and sands, walk along the beach ten minutes to the waterfront Opononi Hotel and wharf. Have a beer with the local characters then dinner at the Thai restaurant - best food in the north! If you prefer to cook at home, organic herbs and salad greens are in the garden. This comfortable retro house has an interesting history - built by one of NZ's All Blacks in the 1940's; Peter Smith.. The open plan house is spacious and exceptionally warm and sunny. Bedrooms are large and bathroom has shower and bath with separate toilet. A large deck with outdoor dining facility overlooks the harbour and there is a small sheltered deck at the rear with morning tea table and BBQ.

# Cross the harbour by water taxi and go sliding down the dunes. $25.00 p.p. boat /sand board.

# Visit the ancient kauri tree giants by day or the glow worms by night.

# Drive out to Signal Station to see the pounding surf or walk down to the beach to enjoy the tidal rock pools

# Follow the Hokianga artisan trail, check out Toi Box at Opononi , No 1 Gallery at Rawene and Village Arts at Kohukohu.

# Soak in the healing natural waters of Ngawha Springs 40 minutes away.

# Immerse yourself in 800 years of history or enjoy coffee at local cafes

# Take the kids to the Rawene Puzzle Shop

But wait.. there's more. For those wanting adventure, cross the harbour on the Rawene Ferry and step back in time. Visit historical Kohukohu or head west into the maori world. Check out wild Mitimiti beach, the magical Warawara mountains, Motuti Marae or tramp the Golden Stairway to Pawarenga. Come and explore this isolated and unique natural environment.

Fabulous little getaway.
Lovely traditional bach style property with loads of history. View is awesome and the area is just perfect for relaxing and strolling. Wendy was super helpful and being able to bring our fur babies made the whole stay just that much better.
