Whanarua Bay Cottages - The Cottage

Family-friendly cottage in Waihau Bay
Whanarua Bay Cottages are located on the Eastern Bay of Plenty side of the East Cape. We are about an hour's drive from Opotiki along StateHighway 35, which is part of the spectacular Pacific Coast Highway.

The cottage is a very cosy two bedroom coastal bach located on a large sunny section surrounded with fruit trees and flower gardens. The place is fenced and there’s a small gully on one side that we have planted in natives. At the rear of the section there’s a cleaning station equipped with running water for the fishermen in the family. This cottage will sleep up to five people comfortably and all beds are made up with fresh linen. The kitchen is fully equipment except it hasn’t got a oven. From the lounge the french doors lead out onto deck, where you can sit back and relax in this beautiful bay. We have kayaks for those who want to go for a paddle and the walk down to bay takes about five to ten minutes.

4/5 Good

Whanarua Stay
The property was Dog friendly, well equipped and catered to all our needs. Despite its location on the main coast road it was extraordinarily quiet. The availability of wifi to the property is by on-site prepay at $10 per GB. An excellent lesson in economy of use! Food wise, the traveler should ensure they cater to all their needs as we did, because it is not a short distance to the dairy for milk, tomatoes or tonic, Ours was a very comfortable stay thank you Margaret.

Peaceful cottage
This is a cute old style kiwi cottage. Good facilities and well equipped. There were things of interest nearby but mostly needed the car to reach them. Easy to find with the owners instructions. Nice place to relax.

Classic kiwi bach
We had a great getaway at this classic kiwi bach ~ very comfortable and had all you needed. Easy 5min walk down to the beach. The neighbours dogs need some training tho, the barking was driving us mad..

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful Place
We very much enjoyed our stay. The only issue was very loud music and arguing neighbours
