I can be contacted by phone if needed. The NeighborhoodThe Kiwi Beach House is just a five minute drive from Opotiki, a small town mid-way along New Zealand's beautiful Bay of Plenty. The coastline stretches from the towering (extinct) volcano, Mount Manganui in the North, several hundred kilometres to New Zealand's spectacular East Cape, famous for its unspoilt beauty and world-renowned wines.
The Bay of Plenty is also an abundant rural area, combining farmed land with thick native bush. With its sheer natural beauty, magnificent coastal scenery and beaches, equable climate, gentle pace of life, and friendly Multi-cultural people, the Bay of Plenty is unparalleled anywhere in New Zealand. The region is also rich in Maori heritage, offering a truly unforgettable experience of 'real' New Zealand.
The Opotiki township is situated on a harbour inlet formed by the junction of two rivers. Bound by these rivers on three sides, the township comprises 309 hectares and the Opotiki District which extends from Ohiwa to Cape Runaway has a population of (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Census of Population and Dwellings for Opotiki District).
The Bay of Plenty is one of the sunniest places in New Zealand renown for its clear blue skies, consistent warm water and fine weather with over 2400 sunshine hours a year. Summer daytime temperatures frequently reach between 26ºC-32ºC, and in winter they average between 16ºC-18ºC with a succession of sparkling hot days and crystal clear starry nights. The climate can be compared to that of California, but here the air is fresh, clean and unpolluted from city smog.
Opotiki is the perfect place to enjoy all year round as the winters are mild and sunny and the summers are never too hot to stop you enjoying the outdoors. The town and surrounding coastal area is sheltered from the cold southerlies that are experienced in many other regions around NZ. In the middle of winter while the North Island's infamous Desert Road can be closed due to snow, you can be soaking up the sunshine and warm weather on the beach-side balcony of The Kiwi Beach House, sheltered by the southerly winds.
