"Amazing location with stunning views. Even better, caught fish off the backyard and pipis fresh out of the water yummo!"
"Awesome place, we got a good sized snapper within half an hour of getting here! Then a kingfish!"
The house is currently rented over winter on a medium term tenancy and is available for holiday rental from 16th December 2016. Guest AccessAmazingly Waterfront is a self contained holiday home, and as such, guests have the house to themselves. All whiteware including washing machine and dryer is included in the house. Interaction with GuestsAs we are local to the Tutukaka Coast, we are available by phone and email if you have any queries before and during your stay. The NeighborhoodTutukaka Coast is a scenic 25 minute drive north east of Whangarei. Ngunguru is at the beginning of the coast and is a picturesque seaside village nestled on the Ngunguru estuary, sheltered by a long sandspit. Ngunguru is the largest of the coastal settlements and has a well-stocked superette and liquor centre, hair dresser, cafes and takeaways, world famous on the coast!
A short drive over the hill from Ngunguru is Tutukaka Harbour – the place to catch a dive boat to explore the world renowned Poor Knights Islands, go deep sea fishing, or eat and shop at the local cafes and shops.
Turn right before Tutukaka and you’ll pass many sheltered harbour bays, all very safe for swimming and letting the kids play in the water. Whangaumu Bay is at the end of the road (just 4 km from the turn off) and is a very popular holiday spot, with a safe beach for swimming, rocks at either end for snorkelling and fishing, and small boats can be launched directly off the beach.
Next stop after Tutukaka is Matapouri, the jewel of our coast. A beautiful horse shoe shaped bay that is perfect for swimming, stand-up paddle boarding and boogie boarding. Matapouri also has an estuary that is a playground in summer for all water sports, including kayaking up the estuary. And then there’s the bridge to jump off at high tide!
Whale Bay is up the hill from Matapouri – a track through stunning native bush leads you to a white sand beach where the bush meets the sand. There are lots of trees to hang out under for the day (when you’re not basking in the clear blue water).
Woolleys Bay and Sandy Bay are the last two beaches before the road heads inland to Hikurangi.
Woolleys generally is less populated than Sandy Bay and is a great beach for family picnics. Sandy Bay is famous for its surf. There is a surf school operating at the beach over summer – a great place to try out surfing!
There are lots of other gorgeous bays and beaches accessible by going off the beaten track and by water, all of them stunning in their own right! Getting AroundAs there isn't any public transport on the coast, you will need a car while you are staying here. Other Things to NoteSmoking outside only.
Please note there isn't a fence between the lawn and the water so it may not be suitable for toddlers.
Please bring your own beach towels.
