The Pataua Beach House borders a beautiful white sand beach. Perfect for just relaxing and gazing at the view, walking on the beach, surfing, swimming or kayaking in the nearby estuary. Furnished with every comfort to make your stay truly memorable.

The space

The top floor of this beautifully renovated farm house is available for your unique beach holiday at Pataua North. Located just 30 minutes drive east of Whangarei, The Pataua Beach House is nestled very privately on 7 acres of land bordering the stunning Pataua North surf beach. The house is set back from the beach with 100m of private lawn between you and the sand dunes, and is furnished with every comfort to make your stay truly memorable.

The upper floor features 3 bedrooms (1 x SuperKing, 1 x Queen, 2 x KingSingles), separate toilet and bathroom (with shower and bath), spacious lounge, kitchen and dining area and a conservatory from which to dine or just relax and gaze at the view. There are laundry facilities downstairs (shared with the onsite host). Decks on 3 sides of the upper storey with outdoor furniture and BBQ complete the layout.

This property is family-friendly with loads of room for the kids to safely run and bike around outside, and there’s plenty of space to park the boat.

Guest access

Guests have full access to the 7 acres of land and direct access to the beach is just across the front lawn.

Interaction with guests

I live downstairs (completely separate). I am very quiet and respect guests' privacy, but I am also very happy to interact, provide information etc if needed.

Other things to note

The nearest shop and petrol station are back in Whangarei, so make sure you are all stocked up before you head out!

A lovely spot, close to the beach and a short walk back to the main Pataua North settlement. Lesley's home is superb and she is a most gracious and willing host - there should you need her but otherwise going about her own business. Highly recommended.

Wow! We were after a unique and relaxing location and Lesley delivered. If you are after a quiet place to unwind and recharge with the modern comforts and an amazing sea view, this is it. Lesley was a wonderful host who made our stay a great experience. Given the chance, we would be back.

We spent just three days at the Pataua beach house and we loved it. Leslie is quite delightful and very welcoming and the house is quite fantastic. Beautifully positioned just as in the photo set back from the lovely sandy beach. It is extensively supplied with everything you could possibly need and more plus generous supplies of basic consumables . The beds are really comfortable and the bath and shower very elegant, modern and efficient. A good shower is important to me and this is a good one. The garden is huge set back from a practically deserted long sandy beach with substantial but not gigantic waves (at least during our stay). Just 500 yards away is a wind and wave protected inlet offering ideal swimming for little ones. Leslie had thoughtfully provided many bonuses such as toys and games for the children and kayaks to borrow if wanted. Just down the road is a very pleasant cafe but otherwise provisions have to be bought in the town which is a good 30 to 40 mins away by car along a twisty country road. It's a fairly isolated setting ideal for the get-away holiday but less so if you want shops and restaurants to hand. Very spacious (we were 6) with lovely sunny terraces and a huge lounge and sun lounge. It has everything including a great hostess
