Beachside accommodation perfectly located for fishing Waihau Bay, exploring the East Cape region, or relaxing in an idyllic beachside setting in this beautiful bay. We are situated by the safe and sandy beach (pictured) considered to be perhaps the best in the East Cape area. After settling into your self-contained roomy apartment, relax – enjoy the fishing, amazing ocean views, or exploring the beach - then finish you day soaking up the spectacular sunsets of Waihau Bay.
If you are looking for a beautiful unspoiled beachfront holiday destination, Oceanside at Waihau Bay in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, East Cape Region, New Zealand is an excellent choice. While this apartment The Bach is located at the rear of the main building, guests staying here will enjoy their own views of the water, through the large sunny windows. There is one big bedroom with a queen bed and a single bed in the spacious open plan living area. The well equipped kitchen has a microwave and gas hob. Enjoy your own wee deck with a small table and chairs to soak up the Oceanside ambiance. You will find your accommodation comfortable and well equipped with all you need, but the most special part of Oceanside is this amazing location - soak up the peace, walk the sandy beach, throw a line in and catch some dinner! watch the ocean.... and don't forget to take time for the breathtaking sunsets.
Oceanside Apartments are the perfect place for a stop on your East Cape travels, or a longer break... perhaps a couples retreat in a quiet but beautiful beach setting ....or a family holiday without the hustle and bustle of more populated places. The beach is a family's paradise... sandy stretches, safe swimming, snorkeling, rock pools to explore, and at low tide – perfect for a game of cricket or volley ball. An escape anytime for anyone – listen to the waves, watch the sea, walk the beach, watch striking sunsets, see the incredible sky at night - no light pollution. The fisherman's dream location – whether it is a spot of surf-casting off the beach or rocks, or the renowned fishing of all types. Accommodation – we offer three large self-contained apartments, each with separate bedrooms sleeping from 1 to 7 people. Enjoy the fabulous views while using our fully equipped kitchens, or relaxing in the large open plan living areas. Oceanside is well placed for exploring the areas around: Whanarua Bay, Cape Runaway, Lottin Point, Hicks Bay, Te Araroa, and the East Cape Lighthouse – all within a 45 minute drive. NEARBY: while Waihau Bay is pleasantly removed from the hustle and bustle of more commercial areas, you can get all the usual essentials. Waihau Bay Camp Store: take away food, ice cream, coffee and some grocery supplies- 1.5km along the road or beach, your choice! Waihau Bay Lodge: meals and a hotel bar,5km along the Bay. Waihau Bay Store: situated right beside the Lodge, for again takeaways, coffee, groceries and fuel pumps. Well known as one of New Zealand's premier fishing locations, there is so much more... The East Cape is a remote area, with beautiful coastal scenery, rocky foreshores, driftwood strewn beaches as well as safe sandy swimming beaches. Largely untouched by development, there are no high-rise or fast food outlets here - simply pristine ocean, clean rivers, back country beef and sheep stations, clear waterfalls, a region steeped in history. It is a haven for those seeking peace, rest and relaxation as well as a playground for active adventurers, and a fisherman's dream. The temperate climate make it a perfect year round holiday destination.

Waihau Bay, Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand

Set in a back drop of New Zealand native bush sits Lottin Point Motel. The motel looks out to the Cape Runaway to the left and Lottin Point to the right, offering the most spectacular vista. With 19 units to choose from, options are boundless. Prices range from $120 for the base units to $190 for 2 people in the Travelers upstairs units. Fishermen have their own space with fishing table for cleaning fish, bait freezer and a walkway to the fishing grounds beneath the Motel.
Considered well off the beaten track, the region doesn't receive as many international tourists as other parts of New Zealand. Those that make it here are here for hunting, fishing or the lush bush walks and solitude - usually without swarms of people. It is a place where outdoor enthusiasts and those seeking a retreat will feel at home.
Safe farming area. Lots of native NZ bush. Pohutakawa from December through to late January, extensive Manuka flowers from November through to the end of Summer. Expansive walks around the coast for those who are physically fit. Kayaks available to Patrons for a small fee. Note subject to conditions
  • Aotearoa at its finest!!! Beautiful place wish you could/would stay longer. Definite must stay if in the area

    Easy access to harbour, ocean and bush, a wonderful array of bird life and stunning rural and harbour views You will simply cross the road to go floundering, collecting pipis and cockles.

    Ohiwa is quiet and peaceful, away from the rat race and traffic which is why I love living here. I love the coast and with the harbour and ocean beach, Ohiwa perfectly suits me.
  • A great little place for a quiet escape. Lindsay was very welcoming and we enjoyed checking out the local area including great walks, beach and glow worms.

    Pamela2018-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lindsay was an amazing host with such a beautiful downstairs apartment! We thoroughly loved our stay in her home. The location was phenomenal with a stellar view of the ocean. We caught the sunset and had a barbie. 10/10 would recommend!

    Colin2018-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Linsay's place was very special. The view from the accommodation was fantastic and gave us a real sense of holiday by the ocean. The place was tastily decorated and the bed was very comfortable. We walked 10 min and got to the place where you can see glowworms. I have been to Waitomo Caves so many times but I had never seen glowworms that close. Linsay told us about it and showed us how to get there. I strongly recommend Linsay's place.

  • A beautiful view, great stylish accomodation, yummy breakfast provisions, friendly and welcoming hosts. You won't be disappointed.

    Erica2018-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • It is well set back from other homes so very secluded and the room is in it's own guest wing of the house so privacy is assured however Alan is super lovely and will provide whatever your needs are. My mum and dad especially loved the little vase of roses from the garden in their room. Everything provided is the very best, clean and in good working order. If you are taking the sofa bed option - I can confirm I slept like a log. We took advantage of the little Webber BBQ for evening meals but lovely surprise to have all that we could possibly need to do breakfasts for our entire stay. Took heaps of photos of the magical views. Really would love to come back again and stay longer. A perfect spot to forget the cares of the world. P.S. Hope the black Labrador loves pats (& carrots).

    Angelique2018-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • Waking up in the morning and being greeted by a rosy sunrise over the beach and cows lowing in the meadows adjacent, was a welcome surprise. The Lodge has a prime position and overview. The amenities are ideal for lazy dinners on the verandah, absorbing the beautiful ambience of the place. Robynne and Allan are very generous hosts.

    Nada2018-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely hosts that are very accommodating and approachable. Very quaint little apartment attached to the side of their own house with your own personal sea views and deck space, perfect for a summer getaway!

    Olivia2018-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Exceptional accommodation, welcoming & generous hosts, fantastic setting & amenities, spotlessly clean with attention to every detail. One of the best places we have ever stayed, can’t wait to come back.

    Julie2018-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot to relax and return home refreshed. Loved waking up and laying in bed watching the sea with the sun pouring through the windows. Incredible hospitality with lots of little touches that made our stay so luxurious and special. Great amenities with everything we might have needed and more. Definitely would recommend, and are thinking of an excuse to come back.

Perfect for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers and family's with one child. 3 min drive to town centre. Close to beaches, rivers , bush walks and the popular Motu Trail.

  • A lovely quiet place to stay with great personal touches from the art on the walls, the the platter of food provided. Ute was a great host and really responsive.

    Rebecca2017-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Ute's place is amazing, everything was perfect, beautiful and clean! Ute is so lovely, she made us feel like at home. Thanks a lot Ute for this great weekend and for all your support for the Motu Challenge! We will come back for sure!

    Mathilde2016-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Ute made us feel welcome from the start and ensured that we had everything we needed before leaving us to be on her own, though she assured us we only had to knock if we needed anything. The accommodation is part of the family home but, at the same time, separate with its own entrance. A large and comfortable bedroom, large modern en suite and a good sized lounge/kitchen/dining area made this the largest accommodation we've stayed in at this price range and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for accommodation in Opotiki.

    Diane2017-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely would recommend this beautiful private accommodation to everyone. It has everything you need and more. You'll have to stay there to find out what the more is :) Thanks to Ute and her husband for making us feel so welcome.

    Erika2017-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Ute is a wonderful host. She went out of her way to make our stay very relaxing and pleasant. Accommodation is private, very clean and only 5 minutes drive out of town in a nice area. The breakfast was delicious.

    Tony2016-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Ute is wonderful, her attention to detail and those little extras make this place so special. The house is one to not miss if your in the area.......just go see for yourselves.

    Andy2017-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Ute is a wonderful host. The property was very comfortable with everything you would need for a short stay. There was a very generous amount of breakfast and packed lunch makings in the fridge for us to use. Both Ute and Trevor are very knowledgable about the local area and gave us advice about the bike trail. The ice pack was much appreciated! We would definitely like to return another time.

    Ann2017-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house and lovely hosts. There was great attention to detail and we were well looked after. Lovely surprises left for us in the fridge and very private. Thanks Ute, Trevor and Ben!

    We invite you to come and relax at our beautiful beach haven. It is a large private downstairs studio apartment set amongst pohutukawa trees with lovely views of the beach and rural countryside. There is great indoor/outdoor flow onto a large patio area and garden surrounded by palm trees where you can sit and unwind listening to the tuis while taking in the scenery and enjoying a beer or wine. You may also want to cook yourselves a meal on the BBQ. We guarantee you won't want to leave!
    Our studio apartment is fully self contained with a well equipped kitchen opening into a roomy lounge area with space for the queen bed. There is a dining area which also has a single bed that can provide extra seating at the extendable table if needed. All of these areas capture the sun and have stunning views of the sea. There is a tiled bathroom with a walk in shower. There is also a warm shower outside so you can rinse off after swimming at the beach. If there are four or more people staying we will then make available a seperate bedroom with a double wardrobe. This is accessed off the lounge through an adjoining sunroom which also has a single bed. The sunroom has large bifolding doors out onto the patio and views of the beach. The apartment is just a 2 minute walk down to the Waiotahe Beach Surf Club and The Bean Coffee Bus which is parked at the beach carpark most mornings so you can get your morning coffee fix while taking a stroll along the beach. It is a 5 minute drive to the local New World Supermarket and the town of Opotiki which offers a range of shops and dining places as well as some great local tourist attractions. We especially recommend visiting our favourite 2 Fish Cafe for the best cup of coffee in NZ and the yummiest food.
    Paerata Ridge is a lovely quite seaside settlement just out of Opotiki which over looks Waiotahe Beach.
  • Wonderful apartment in a great location that has everything you need. 5 minute walk to the beach was wonderful and we loved waking up to the beautiful views of the ocean. Fantastic hosts that made our stay very comfortable..especially with all the baby gear they provided for my 2 small children. Super relaxing time away!

    Holly2018-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to come home to after a day out anywhere in the Eastern BOP which is already beautiful enough. Exquisite view of the ocean, just up from the beach and minutes from Ōpōtiki the location was perfect for our family. The amenities weren't spared with loads of indoor and outdoor space for the kids and adults alike. Complete with laundry and family size bathroom to do the washing up, modern appliances and BBQ to cook, Netflix and WIFI to boot, it has all the creature comforts away from home. Karen & Greg were fabulous hosts; only a text or conversation away, my family and I received the warmest hospitality. Thank you both; we would love to come back in the near future.

    Kimoro2018-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing place to stay! So amazing in fact we had to stay again. The hosts are the best, so accommodating and made our family feel welcome. We cannot get enough of it. Highly recommended.
