About this cottage

Whanarua Bay Cottages are located on the Eastern Bay of Plenty side of the East Cape. We are about an hour's drive from Opotiki along StateHighway 35, which is part of the spectacular Pacific Coast Highway.


The cottage is a very cosy two bedroom coastal bach located on a large sunny section surrounded with fruit trees and flower gardens. The place is fenced and there’s a small gully on one side that we have planted in natives. At the rear of the section there’s a cleaning station equipped with running water for the fishermen in the family. This cottage will sleep up to five people comfortably and all beds are made up with fresh linen. The kitchen is fully equipment except it hasn’t got a oven. From the lounge the french doors lead out onto deck, where you can sit back and relax in this beautiful bay. We have kayaks for those who want to go for a paddle and the walk down to bay takes about five to ten minutes.

    Classic kiwi bach

    We had a great getaway at this classic kiwi bach ~ very comfortable and had all you needed. Easy 5min walk down to the beach. The neighbours dogs need some training tho, the barking was driving us mad..
