Bream Head Coast Walks Lodge

Claire and Mark welcome you to our holiday home.

Situated at Whangarei Heads and on the north-eastern slopes of the Mount Manaia range, your accommodation is purpose-built, in its own private bush setting with sea views. Treat it like your own home – you have complete privacy. The house has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, full kitchen and laundry facilities and is sunny and warm with extensive bush, rural and sea views. Relax in all weathers in our under-cover outdoor living area. Indulge yourself with a candle-lit soak in our outdoor bush bath. There is 4G cell coverage here, and wi-fi. The house comfortably sleeps 12 people.

We are five minutes away from Taurikura Beach and 15 minutes from Ocean Beach.

The lodge is wheelchair friendly, with a ramped entrance and an accessible bathroom.

The bedrooms are set up like this:

  • First bedroom: one queen bed
  • Second bedroom: twin king single beds
  • Third bedroom: one queen bed
  • Bunk Room: three sets of single bunks, sleeps six in total

All linen, including beach and bath towels are supplied.

Our aim is to provide you with fresh, local, seasonal food.

Your first evening meal will be in the lodge when you arrive, requiring only a minimum of input from you – perhaps heating something in the oven or cooking something on the barbecue.

Our menu will vary with the seasons, the market, our, and our friends’ vegetable gardens, and what our fishermen can catch
