This beach house is a little gem. so close to the water, bring your boat is right next to a concrete boat ramp. Such a small private little sunny bay. You will find more than you bargain for - the house feels like home, with all the small touches that make this house so much be…

Clive was overly generous by allowing us to check-in slightly early and unload refridgerated food following our travels with an infant. He and his team had the place spotless and holiday-ready for us. He was quick to explain local features and activities to us. There home itself…

Clive's place is super beautiful and you can't get any closer to the beach! It had more than enough space to accommodate our whole big family and the house had everything we needed and more. The kayaks were great and we used them to explore the local area. Clive went above and be…

Great to know the beach house can cope with 13 plus guests. Good to see the 5 kayaks being used in early spring. There are many interesting places to explore from the water

Tapeka Del Mar is a truly stunning spot by the beach with lots of space and activities to enjoy which our 2.5 year old relished. Sunsets were gorgeous and the house itself is very well provisioned and comfortable. We would love to come and stay again sometime.

If you're not from NZ, know that the house is on a tanked supply.....that means if it doesn't rain you could runout of water if you have a large party. House is besutiful, and and location is right on the beach! It's not in walking distance to town, so you'll have to drive to ge…

Response from Clive:
Most of the Bay of Islands does not have town water supply (as is the case with many parts of NZ) but we have large water tanks and simply ask guests to conserve water during summer dry periods. We ensure there is adequate water for the larger groups this house can accommodate (up to 13) and will soon have unlimited hot water to ensure there is enough for everyone. Russell is 2km, 2 mins by car or a 20 min walk if you can cope with half the walk uphill! Most guests prefer being close to town on the beach but away from the traffic noise and people. We are pleased you enjoyed the house and beach and thank you for the feedback
