If you’re looking for a holiday house on the beach, this one is literally on the beach. Fall off your veranda and you’ll actually roll onto the sand! Escape from it all at this secluded 2-bedroom retreat with a separate cabin and its own dock, ideal for 2 families or groups of up to 10. A sprawling yet well-manicured lawn lets kids camp in tents or stay in the cabin, right next to the main house.
This private and inspiring setting is also the perfect backdrop for creative types. Paint a masterpiece or pen the next great novel! Accessible by 4x4, helicopter or boat, this one-of-a-kind Waiheke accommodation is on a 50-acre section with bush walks and a variety of farm animals, peacocks, native birds and fauna.
A wharf and mooring accessible at half-tide lets boaties enjoy great fishing spots outside the Marine Reserve, Waiheke’s bountiful bottom end. And a large, flat grassy area right next to the beach—your very own beach—makes this hideaway a romantic wedding venue for up to 150 guests, with 2 heli-pads for a dramatic entrance.

Guest Book / Testimonials
- The journey out to the property is just as spectacular as the property itself, but would highly recommend a 4x4 vehicle as there as some steep gravel sections. The property itself is set on a private beach with only the owners residence up on the hill. Animals, including peacocks, sheep, donkeys and birds, are scattered throughout the property which is very cool. The interior of the place is very basic but has everything you need to have a comfortable stay. Board games around the fireplace or reading a book on the couch is a great way to relax and unwind from the world. We felt very secluded, which was nice. Thank you very much to Sue and Don for welcoming us and making our stay one to remember. Will definitely be returning in future.” This place will always hold a special place for me as I proposed to my partner on the jetty. Will definately be back.

David Williams, Apr 2014
- WOW, this place is amazing! The photos on the website do not do justice for just how breath taking this place is. Jumping off the jetting at high tide, hand feeding the birds, walking round the rocks, sleeping to the sound of the water, Beautiful. Our car ran into a bit of trouble (flat battery and flat tyre!) and the owners and the property manager were outstanding, we were blown away by how helpful they were. Highly recommend and we look forward to going back. Very private.
Angela Martin, Feb 2014
- Fantastic weeks stay at the Bach, just what we needed, plenty of opportunities to keep busy from walk's, kayaking, exploring, fishing outside the reserve and enjoying the isolation. Manager was very helpful and encouraged the kids to visit the Avery, peacocks were very entertaining.
Susan Reelick, Jan 2014
- The spot is quite far away from the wharf and town. So once you are there you stay there. The place is at the most amazing spot. So much land and the batch is right on the beach. I would highly recommend staying there.
Juliette Lovett, Jan 2014
- We absolutely loved this venue. It was truely amazing. We had it all......beach, farm and room for the boat. The Farm manager was absolutely fantastic and made our stay really enjoyable. We would love to return!!
Karen Spicer, Jan 2014
- The property is amazing! Very cool little Bach and so close to the water. We would definitely look to visit again and is perfect if you are taking your 4x4 with you for the weekend. We woke up to the sound of the waves crashing onto the beach outside the front door and half a dozen peacocks chilling on the front deck!
Rhodri Thomas, Aug 2013
- We enjoyed our stay at Whites Bay. The bach is small, but nice. We enjoyed the use of the kayak and dingy, and swimming in the bay. The property manager was very friendly and helpful. We would recommend this property to those looking to get away to a more remote location.
