Our slice of family paradise is located at Mahanga which only has 30 baches. It is 10 minutes from Mahia, 40 minutes from Wairoa and 1 hour from Gisbourne.
Beach front bach with views over the ocean and at the back of the bach there are views out over the hills that contain protected native forests.
Fantastic golden beach for both swimming and surfing. Kayaks and surf boards available.
Pot belly stove upstairs to keep you warm along with heaters for winter. Lovely walks from the house up over native bush which is suitable in summer and winter.
Walk around the rocks to go diving for paua and crayfish or walk the other direction along the beach to the water mouth to hunt pippies, cockls and tuatauas. (1 hour walk).
We also have a fish tank at the bach for kids to bring back marine life from the rock pools. There are also loads for games and puzzles to play as there is no TV or internet, which we love! As it really is the simplicity of life! But if you need access just drive around to Mahai.
There is also a local horse down the road to visit! Or hots pools 20 mins away.
NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);
