Guests have access to the area immediately surrounding the Bach itself. There is a working oyster farm to the rear and below the Bach. We would ask guests to refrain from removing or interfering with any oysters or equipment therein.

Due to work commitments it is regrettably not possible for me to meet with guests in person. While there is cellphone coverage in most places in the area my work takes me to places where there is poor or no coverage at all. I make every endeavour to access my messages later in the day after work and as coverage improves. There is a message bank on my landline and I check Airbnb regularly.

The road to the property winds down a picturesque landscape overlooking farm lands across the harbour to dazzling white silica sand and harbour and ocean views. Further north on your way to Cape Reinga turn left at Te Paki Stream and hire a boogie board for some dune boarding on the giant sand dunes. After you've been to the Cape wander back to Tapotupotu Beach for a dip in the crystal clear water or wander along the lovely sandy beach. Stop in at Waitiki Landing further south for an icecream and head to Spirits Bay if you have time and enjoy the seemingly endless sandy and shingle beach. If you don't have time continue south and stop at Te Kao store and I'd challenge you to try to finish one of their giant ice cream cones. If you've booked for a couple of nights there's still time to visit either 90 Mile Beach, Rarawa Beach or Henderson Bay. Grab a beer at NZ's northernmost pub at Houhora or sit down to fish and chips at Pukenui. All this within 40-60 minutes of Mother Jimmys Bach. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

A price reduction is offered for 2 nights or more at $100 per night. Just message me to change your booking price to reflect this.

A beautiful outlook over paddocks with sheep and lambs and views to the coast and fantails flitting about near the house.

The view and surroundings are truly beautiful. Better communications from the host is required. There are rats and some issues with the electricity that need urgent attention.

It was quite difficult to locate the key as it wasn't where it was supposed to be. Overall it's a nice cozy place to enjoy and relax. Great views around and quite clean too. I will definitely recommend this place to all my friends and will hope to come back again.

Classic kiwi bach, secluded but scenic. Comfortable and quiet, a good retreat from normal life.
