Places to stay in Sandy Bay
A peaceful private little oasis rural surrounds great view of the native bush headland & ocean views This barn, situated on the homestead block of the original settlor family has been lovingly and gradually converted into a very comfortable 3 bedroom home over a period of 25yrs. It is just a short level stroll to the well known surf beach Sandy Bay Nth aspect means plenty of sun and surrounding native trees and garden give shelter from sea breeze
  • Really beautiful place with a very cool Kiwi beach surf vibe . Super close walk to the ocean and you can even see it and hear the waves from the property garden. Everything was clean and tidy, will definitely be back !

  • Awesome kiwi bach at the beach experience! With an easy walk off the property onto the beach, and a nice open living area to chill out in.

  • Our family had great time in Sandy Bay, close to the beach and and an idyllic spot. Good amenities and Pauline was a great host. Such a beautiful part of the country and would definitely recommend this lovely place to stay.

  • The place was exactly as described, it's only a short walk to the beach and there are plenty of things (like outdoor shower and gas BBQ) that would help make a summer stay quite nice. I enjoyed my time staying at the barn and would definitely consider staying here again

  • Pauline’s place is incredible. Very clean and calm place with everything one needed. Its one of the best place we stayed so far with amazing view. Pauline was very accommodating and responded quickly for all communications.Would definitely stay here again!

    Tanu2019-12-27T00:00:00Z

    Cute tidy self contained studio generally for couples, comfy king bed and attached out side bathroom. Farmstay on a horse farm, horse trail riding available, and a quick 2min walk to popular surf beach Sandy Bay. Great walking track on your door step...
    Located in a stunning area with a coastal rural feel, handy to horse treks at the property, also surf lessons, scuba-diving, paddle boarding and great walks all within 10kms up and down the Tutukaka coast (rated as a top 10 coast worldwide). Very close to a beautiful popular surf beach (200m). (added option of pull-out single matrice/ porta-cot) could sleep 3 but would be cozy.
    coastal rural community, country feel at the beach. 12 beautiful horses grazing the 25 acre property, dogs and chooks, a real chance to get away from the city.
  • It is a great space near the beach. The horses are nearby and at night you can see many stars!

    Jenny2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place was wonderful. The proximity to a great surf beach couldn’t be beat. It’s also within walking distance of a coastal walk. All in all a great place to relax for a few days and enjoy the great outdoors.

    Nathan2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, perfect place to switch off & get away

    Jack2020-03-04T00:00:00Z

    Brooke2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Tom2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • These people are fantastic and their place is amazing. Great proximity to Sandy Bay, it really is walking distance. Recommend the horse ride. Staying here feels like a true holiday: it is relaxing, uplifting and has a beautiful outlook. You feel like you are nestled in the best of beautiful New Zealand. Would be pleasant year round. Great people, great place. Could not recommend more highly. Would love to return and will.

    Knights View Retreat – Sandy Bay This unique retreat is surrounded in native bush and offers stunning views out to the Poor Knights Islands. Our private guest room is separate from the house and comes with a kitchenette, tiled bathroom with walk in shower and large decking area with BBQ. There is access provided to a spa pool (on request), outdoor shower and drying area for dive gear/wetsuits with plenty of room available for those wanting to bring their own surfboards or kayaks.
    With numerous beaches and walks at your fingertips we provide the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Enjoy our wonderful native birdlife with tui and woodpigeon during the day and morepork and Kiwi calls echoing through the valley when night falls. On a clear night this is also a spectacular place for star gazing with few lights to dull the amazing glow of the night sky. Here's what our guests have to say: Anisa’s place far exceeded our expectations! A beautiful home set on a hilltop with amazing views over the valley and ocean, the best Airbnb we’ve ever booked. Book this place without hesitation, even if you have to travel a little further to get there - it’s worth it! Knights View Retreat is a beautiful place to stay. Our visit of three nights was idyllic: the studio is very comfortable, welcoming and well-equipped, with a fantastic view and lovely deck where we had all our meals. We loved the view, the quiet, the stars, the trees and garden all around. Amazing beaches are a 10-minute drive away, and there are wonderful nearby hikes to beaches too. The hosts are great; they welcomed us very nicely and then left us in total privacy. Note that the description of the kitchen is accurate; there is no stove but there is a good gas bbq. We like remote beauty with comfort, and this is it. We arrived with plans to use this as a jumping off point for further exploration but immediately decided we would stay close to home because it is such a great place to just be.
    Situated within a 5-10 minute drive of some of the most pristine beaches and coastal walks on the Tutukaka coast and only 14 km away from the Tutukaka marina (gateway to the outer islands and Poor Knights Marine Reserve) offering sightseeing, diving and fishing charters as well cafes/restaurants, art galleries and shops. You can also book surf lessons at our local Sandy Bay Surf Beach, enjoy horse trekking and walk or cycle the Sandy Bay/Whananaki walk/cycle way – all right at your doorstop within a 4 minute drive from Knights View Retreat. Whilst there are a good range of dining options and supplies from our local eateries and superettes, if you are staying for a few days or arriving early evening and driving through a main centre such as Whangarei or KeriKeri it is worth stopping into a supermarket to get any supplies you think you may need for your visit as most of our small shops shut by 7.00pm if you are not wanting to eat out and they do not stock the range of items you will find in a supermarket.
  • Anisa's place was absolutely wonderful! The view from the Airbnb is stunning and we had everything we needed for a lovely vacation. The beaches near by were breathtaking. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

    Edith2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Maria-Teresa2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view, awesome hospitality, lots of stylish accessories and did we mention the view. A good base for Tutukaka Coast with easy trips to Whale Bay, Matapouri and Tutukaka and really helpful accommodating hosts who responded to requests quickly and happily. A brilliant spot with a warm outdoor shower!

From your room you walk out to the deck facing the beach which has seating, lovely place to relax for two. On the other side of the deck is a cute bathroom. If you have just arrived from Overseas I would suggest you stop in Whangarei to do some shopping perhaps at PACnSAVE or Countdown. We do have a local store with limited supplies or we can help if you arrive late in the day. We have kayaks that you can use. There are several surfing beaches approx. 10 minutes away. If you are a keen fishing person we can guide you to them, just bring your own gear and the store has good bait and good prices. If you wish to bring your own boat there are two boat launching places, one just around the corner the other 10 minutes away. There are some great walks in the area, short and long. We are very close to the Te Araroa - The Long Pathway - which is the walkway through NZ. On our property we have a Maori lookout Pah site which you can walk up to and further enjoy more wonderful views. There are other walks including walking the longest foot bridge in the Southern Hemisphere and visiting the crystal clear lagoon in the area. This is a great place to set up as a base. You can visit other parts of the Tutukaka Coastline which is about 45 minutes south from here and has some great Restaurants and lovely beaches and beach walks. Catch a boat from there to the Poor knights and see this astounding place to snorkel and dive. If you would like to see some local history go to Waitangi which is north just under an hour away and visit the treaty grounds. If you would like to go to Russell is just under an hour away by a very scenic road. There is also the Helena Bay Cafe which has a fantastic collection of only New Zealand art work and a cafe with lovely views open for brunch or a late lunch is only 35 mins away. A place to relax or enjoy lots of activities. There is a local store which has all the basics foods and and fish and chips is open 8.30am to 5.30pm. 2.5 hours from Auckland and you can be here in our peaceful retreat.
    Uncrowded with pristine coastal area and friendly locals.
  • This location is a semi isolated heaven . Tea is helpful and lovely host. Thank you Tea .

    Gerard2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing spot.. if you like getting off the beaten track a bit Tea’s place is amazing. Fantastic outlook over a beautiful beach and everything you need for a good time👍🏻

    Alan2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, stunning bay! Beautiful special place not to be missed.

    Jamie2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful piece of paradise. Great to visit and enjoy some of the best beach scenery NZ has to offer.

    Glenn2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Tea greeted us upon our arrival and was even kind enough to help us bring in a couple bags. The space was even more cozy and stylish than the pictures. But that view in the pictures is spot on! Beach is right out front and provided beautiful swimming and paddling. If you enjoy being a beach bum, this is truly the spot to be! Kitchen has the bare essentials for what you need if you plan to dine in. Tea and her husband also provided a small BBQ grill for us to cook on one of the nights. Otherwise, the one place in the village that does takeaways has some super yummy fish and chips/burgers n stuff. Get groceries though in Whangerei before you head to Whananaki. Not much at local store. Only downside to the location is that it takes an hour to go anywhere else to see/do things apart from a handful of local trails and walks. We also loved the company of Tea's affectionate cat too! Loved feeling like we had our own little slice of heaven for a few days. Only other criticisms are that the room gets a bit stuffy when it's hot out and can get buggy from having the windows/slider open for fresh air, and the matress is a bit on the soft side. Tea's place was just what we were looking for, and we appreciated all her helpful tips on the area! Would definitely go back!

    Mel2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Everything you could ask for in an off the beaten track stay! Right on an empty beach with amazing views. Exactly what we were looking for.

    James2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had such an amazing stay, words cannot describe how magical this bnb was. We had gorgeous views of the water right from our little private deck. We were able to use the kayaks that Tea provides at our leisure and explored the bay. We hope to be back one day!

    Courtney2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This beach is the most wonderful place! A perfect place to stay. Tea was an excellent host. We were sorry we had to leave.

    Karina2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy place and wonderful host. Pauline made our stay very pleasant with her extra touches and friendliness! The place was clean, the beds were comfortable and the closeness to the beach and nice walking tracks made it worth it!

  • Pauline’s place is such an idyllic, relaxing spot! It looks across the beach and is a short walk down the hill to the water. Pauline was so hospitable! We were able to use the upstairs kitchen to cook our dinners and she offered us breakfast which was lovely. Would highly recommend :)

  • We stayed a couple nights and had a lovely time. It took us about 5 minutes to walk to Pond Hut from where we parked the car. The walk to the hut makes it really special - beautiful journey through lots of native trees. We suggest bringing candles and mosquito repellent. As architectural designers we were very inspired with the place Bob has created - it truely is so sensitive to its surroundings & lots of clever DIY details. Looking forward to trying out Bobs other place Tui Cabin next time. Tui cabin is a bit closer to the car parking area and higher up on the hill. We recommend staying here - if you are ok with no electricity & composting toilet (part of its charm we think!)

    Jess2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Bob! Really appreciate you thinking of all the little extras such as matches and food storage. It means you really only need to carry in your bedding and clothing which was a great help! Love the secluded location

    Jo2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great little cabin to stay in. Lovely location

    Kaylie2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot in the bush where you can really unwind and connect with nature. Waking up with a hot coffee and beautiful forestry listening to the chirping birds. Doesn't get much better than that.

    Jean-Luc2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing retreat away from the hustle and bustle. A different world!

    Very suitable for self-isolation as we have just added cooking facilities. A small and warm modern cabin with an amazing view over the sea to the Poor Knights Islands. The cabin enjoys all day sun and is well insulated. It has a King bed and a small table and chairs. Handy for Sandy Bay surf beach and other beautiful beaches.
    This cabin is >100m away from the owners house so is quiet private. There's an outside and inside hot shower. Outside and inside table and chairs. No kitchen but a 3 burner stove top on a table outside and a 1 burner inside, a kettle, microwave and toaster for your breakfast and a cool box. Inside cassette type toilet, that uses a manual water flush and an outside long-drop type toilet. Neither smell and are very easy to use. 10 minutes to the Matapouri store where they do takeaways and 15 minutes to Tutukaka cafes and shops.
    The cabin is in a field overlooking the coast surrounded by trees.
  • Great little place! Very close to Sandy Bay if you're into your surfing and the views are incredible for such an affordable price. Julia and her husband were very nice people. Would recommend.

    Nick2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

Attractions Cafe and restaurants 20 minutes coastal or country drive away Take a day trip to the breathtaking Helena Bay Gallery, great food, NZ Arts and souvenirs Visit Tutukaka Gallery, take a memorable dive at the Poor Knight Islands, or maybe a 'bucket list' surf lesson with Tutukaka Surf, or simply relax at one of our wonderful restaurants.

  • My second stay with Carolyn and John was just fantastic, as expected. I brought a friend for their first time and she was so enchanted with the house and the hospitality shown to us! We are forever grateful for the warmth and fond memories made during our stay.

    Mary2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Carolyn was such a great host, we absolutely loved her beautiful home and brekkie on the patio was an amazing touch. Great location near the bays.

    Anne2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • My Wife and I have stayed here before and what wowed us brought us back and we weren’t disappointed. Feeding the goats and sheep, the amazing breakfast, with fresh bread and cute little dog, were just some of the touches. Carolyn and John are great hosts and provide the best hospitality and local advice. We will definately be back soon!

    Jayde2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most amazing stay at Carolyn's place. The place itself was so cosy and stylish, and it was a refreshing escape from the city life. What made our trip so special was the warm and inviting feeling that Carolyn and John gave us as soon as we arrived. It was so easy to talk to them like we had known them for ages. Loved the breakfasts and the farm animals were an added bonus. Carolyn is definitely the no. 1 place to stay in Matapouri. We will definitely come back again purely to visit Carolyn and John.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend away at Carolyn and John's cozy cabin tucked away in the countryside. Carolyn is the perfect host in helping you find places to eat, activities to do, and local tips. The bedroom and bathroom was lovely and the outdoor areas offer a great place to enjoy the views. I loved getting to feed and meet all the animals in their paddock. In short, we felt genuinely welcomed into their home and cared for during our entire stay. We highly recommend this place if you are looking for a relaxed accommodation in wonderful company :) We would love to come back again!

We are very close to the Te Araroa - The Long Pathway - which is the walkway through NZ.

    Pristine beaches
  • We had an absolutely marvellous time at Tea’s idyllic little spot. The most spectacular of views, in the middle of your own beach with the treat of warm running water if you need it. We enjoyed a comfortable and relaxing stay and would love to come back.

    Heidi2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • A cozy little indoor/outdoor home with a view you absolutely can't beat. The beach feels private, and Tea was very hospitable. Would definitely stay again!

    Sayler2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Tea was an incredible host and her property accommodated my family group in the best way. We took advantage of the basic set-up by cooking in the open kitchen every night and eating under the stars. You cannot beat the location or views here! Fishing and diving in the area is amazing too. Bring a few extra lanterns and you'll be set. I would 100% return and recommend to others.

    Available from March 23rd and very suitable for self-isolation. A very romantic getaway. Our Glamping Tipi is in a beautiful private setting, surrounded by forest, with a lovely view of the Pacific. There are 12v lights, a separate kitchen & bathroom, with a hot shower & smell free composting toilet. A great experience for people wanting to try something romantic and a bit different but it may not suit "townies"
    The Tipi is well set up, with a comfortable queen bed. A table and chairs are provided and can be used in the garden, or kitchen in the unlikely event of rain. We have a funky fero cement kitchen with all you need. There's a composting toilet and hot shower in a separate outbuilding. There's 12v lighting in the Tipi and outbuildings but no 240v. There is a USB charger. In the kitchen are 2 gas rings and a gas fridge. Guests should note that very occasionally Northland is hit by the tail end of a cyclone from the Pacific. The tipi is not suitable for cyclones. If there is one we shall offer you to stay in our nearby Sandy Bay Cabin, as long as it's available and we have a flexible cancellation policy if you prefer to cancel.
    Our coastline is constantly judged in the top 5 of the world's most outstanding. We have a surf beach nearby as well as quiet beaches to watch the sunset with a bottle of wine :)
  • Such a beautiful place! Great for couples. Lovely hosts and so helpful. Chris was very thoughtful and went above and beyond. Will definitely be back!

  • The cabin is great! It's fairly rustic, so if you like being off the grid a bit then this is the place for you.

    Erik2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to get away from it all and back to basics (there's no power) Bob's has that with added bonus of a fireplace, gas cooker, gas outside shower and sunrise that streams through your french doors. I bring my bike as it is only a few minutes easy ride to the stunning Matapouri Bay! This has been my third visit and I'm planning another soon.

    Matapouri is part of the Tutukaka Coast - just 35 mins drive from Whangarei. Beautiful beaches, walks, diving and surfing all at your fingertips. Our studio is 2 mins walk from Matapouri beach. This is a new studio and is under our house - please note you will hear us upstairs so it can be noisy. Pets negotiable. Smoking ok outside.
    Whangarei is a 2 hour trip from Auckland city and we are another 25 mins from there.
    Matapouri Bay is a family-friendly beach on the Tutukaka Coast with dazzling white sand and safe swimming. From here you can follow the walkway leading to Whale Bay, an idyllic bush-fringed beach with more safe swimming and pohutukawa trees. Whale Bay is only accessible on foot and takes 20 minutes one way; the coastal views are splendid. You can take dive trips out to the Poor Knights from Tutukaka.
  • Maree and Kevin are such nice hosts, the place is absolutely nice, all the facilities are thoughtful and handy, the location is perfect for the people who would like to explore the surrounding, strongly recommended!

    Kyle2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

The studio was very clean and in new condition. The bed was very comfy and SKY TV was a big plus! Fast WIFI allowed me to do a bit of work from home. The location was incredible. The house was just a quick two minute walk to what is arguably the best beach in NZ! Matapouri is a very special place. We would absolutely stay with Maree and Kevin again.

    Kara2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

  • Matapouri Bay is an amazing beach and the stay at Cedar Stone Lodge just adds to the experience. You can't get any closer to the beach. Flat 2 was well equipt with everything for a stress free holiday. The place was very clean and tidy and greatfor families as our kids were able to wander out the door to play in the sand without us having to worry where they were. with the beach on your doorstep and the estuary just around the corner you are spoilt for choice. Mark was a great host and replied quickly to questions we had. He was even quick to email and advise when there was a planned power outage in the bay so we were able to plan ahead with little disruption. We would certainly stay here again in the future

    Simon2019-02-03T00:00:00Z

    A very private 5 acre absolute coastline property that was Best Setting Bronze Winner in the NZ Bach awards with its private safe swimming beach and incredible 180 deg views to the Poor Knight Islands and along a World top 3 rated coastline.
    Fringed by pohutukawas and native bush along the shoreline this unique property enjoys two private beaches and its own mooring in a sheltered, all weather sandy bay. Breakfast at the outside table with sea views to die for, recline on the deck and soak up the all day sun, play volleyball or cricket on the massive front lawn, wander along a loop track through native bush to the point - a special place to sit and contemplate above the ocean, check out on a side track what was once a small Maori pa, walk down our private track with steps to the beach to swim, fish off the point, snorkel or dive for crays, take our kayaks for a paddle around the bay or along the coast or take your boat off the mooring and out for a day's fishing. The fish and cray in the photos were caught from the offshore reef just out from the beach. Winter fishing is best here. Our dining table seats 10 to 12. Tiled ensuite plus separate upstairs and downstairs bathrooms, 3 fridges plus a stand alone chest freezer. Fish cleaning bench, bait freezer. There is heaps of parking and turning for boats, cars and trailers. We have over 100 reviews (100% positive) on another NZ bach site. Linen, if required, is $15 p/p and includes sheets, pillowcases, towels, tea towels and shower mats. Blankets, duvets and pillows are provided for all guests. Bookings from May to Sept (incl) are discounted to make it cheaper for smaller groups to stay (10 or less) . If you have more than 10 there is a surcharge of $30 p/p per night which is payable to me along with linen if needed. We let all our potential guests know that our house is equipped with two (one upstairs and one downstairs) Meths Detector continuously monitored, silent alarm systems. These detect when a house is being used as a P lab or when P is being smoked and send a message via the cell phone network to a monitoring centre which notifies me and I ring the police. We want our home to remain P free. We installed this system not because we have had problems in the past but because we wish to avoid them and have a place safe for our guests, ours grandchildren and ourselves.
    We are two and a half hrs from Auckland, a little over half an hr to Whangarei and only 5 minutes to a great surf beach, 2 minutes to a boat launching ramp in the Whananaki estuary or 3 minutes to the local general store (no fuel).
  • Such an amazing house with beautiful views. Everyone felt completely relaxed the second they walked through the door. Steve was a great host and got back to us super quick about any questions we had. Would highly recommend staying here. I will definitely be keen to stay again.

At nearby Tutakaka you can arrange to go deep sea fishing, diving, or enjoy eating at the popular Snapper Rock Cafe or Deep Sea Fishing Club. Other well known beaches are Whale Bay (walking distance) and Sandy bay (Surf beach)

    Staffa Bay is a stunning safe swimming beach at the eastern end of Woolleys Bay, near Matapouri, on the Tutukaka Coast. Nestled in the glorious native bush including a nikau palm grove, the house is situated right on the beach with a magnificent view over Woolleys Bay and the sea. This private, comfortable, peaceful home provides a unique retreat, with its own beach access it's 25 metres from door to beach. 5 minute walk to the magical Whale Bay Reserve.
    A true 1970s gem, our house was designed by architect Warwick Lee. It is a real Kiwi bach with many cosy spaces and glorious views. It has many stairs and is very steep, so is not suitable for people with restricted mobility. We are happy to share our family's much-loved beach house. It is a tree-house of its time and very different from modern houses with all the mod-cons, but for us and for most of our guests, this is part of its charm.
  • I’d like to be selfish and not say how wonderful the treehouse is!!! Can’t lie though, seriously If you get a chance to stay don’t miss out, it is truly fantastic!!!

    Ronelle2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
