Want to be away from the crowds? Take time out at My Omaio in Omaio Bay, near Te Kaha. A perfect holiday rental bach for two to three couples, a family or just you – to unwind and chillax on the deck or fish and explore on the beach below. Swim in the nearby river, or from one of the many sandy swimming beaches, explore rock pools, or take a scenic walk through the bush to the delightful Whanarua Bay waterfall. If fishing by boat is your passion – bring it along, there are many great fishing spots along this part of the Bay of Plenty coastline.
My Omaio’s self-contained cottage and annexe accommodation offers a sun-drenched northerly aspect and breath-taking views out over the Pacific Ocean. With its great indoor-outdoor flow, you can dine al-fresco on the deck under the stars, or under twinkling patio lights next to the BBQ. It’s a relaxing traditional kiwi holiday get-away bach – New Zealand how it used to be.
Drive out from Whakatane, Bay of Plenty and head east from Opotiki towards Te Kaha along the beautiful scenic Pacific Coast Highway 35. From Opotiki to Omaio, its a 50 minute scenic coastal drive with spectacular views across Bay of Plenty, showcasing Whale Island and White Island on the horizon, as well as the Motu River and other sweeping bays along the way.
Whether you’re looking for that perfect beach holiday-bach hideaway with space to park the boat, want to write the next best-selling book, or if your visiting for business, scoping the kiwifruit, Manuka honey, forestry, mussel industries, etc, that thrive along the East Cape’s Pacific Coast highway, you’ll have a comfortable, enjoyable holiday stay at My Omaio.
