Back to Blog

Winning Gold in the 2009 Master Builders House of The Year Competition, this home’s striking design and elevated position allow for sensational twin coastal views for as far as the eye can see! Located in remote Rawhiti in the breathtaking Bay of Islands, with Oke Bay on one side and Hauai Bay on the other – this luxury retreat promises a truly unique and unbeatable escape. The home’s design welcomes the outside in, allowing the space to be flooded with light creating a magical atmosphere – step inside and enjoy a guaranteed pinch me moment! Introducing Oke Beach House to the Bachcare Luxury Collection!

Let us show you around… 

6 Bedrooms | 5 Bathrooms | 18 Guests | Twin Coastal Views | Outdoor Log Fire | 3.5 hr drive from Auckland

Set over 2 levels, Oke Beach House’s distinctive design and luxe interior gives a whole new meaning to oceanfront retreat. With 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, accommodating up to 18 guests, and meticulous attention to detail to discover throughout – this home is truly something special. The muted neutral tones pair perfectly with the green foliage and landscaping that surround the house. Built to maximise the stunning views and sunshine, Oke Beach House is an entertainers delight. Central to the home is the expansive open plan living area that flows out onto decks from both sides of the house. Unwind and admire twin ocean views of Hauai and Oke Bay – not only is there always something sensational to look at, you also have the luxury of choosing which side to relax or entertain on, depending on the occasion and time of day.

 

The unique design of the house is that it was created to allow two large families to co-exist while maintaining each families own personal space. The generous open plan living area upstairs is flanked either side by the family areas – which each have two very large bedrooms, each with their own decks looking out to breath taking vistas, ensuite’s with wet wall walk-in showers, as well as walk in wardrobes. Downstairs is the best place to send the kids, where they’ll love the two massive bunk rooms not to mention their own media room and a 30 meter deck.

This luxury Bay of Islands holiday home positions you within just a 3 minute walk to 2 sandy safe beaches – both are sheltered bays, great for swimming, fishing, and rock hopping! The owner’s describe the best beach in New Zealand by a country mile as Oke Bay, which is a hop and a skip from the house, and remains somewhat of an undiscovered Northland gem! If you are lucky, you will find the Tuatuas (NZ shellfish) there which make for a delightful fresh seafood meal, and keep your eye out for dolphins who are regular visitors to the bays either side of the house! If you’re game try a ‘bomb’ or two off the cliff at high tide!

Spread your wings and roam the surrounding coastline, with excellent walks that leave from right outside the back deck – including the world renowned Cape Brett walkway. Bring the boat and all the toys for an action packed adventure, or simply put your feet up and luxuriate on site with a spot of al fresco dining.

For cosy retreats in the cooler months, snuggle up on the sumptuous sofas and toast marshmallows on the outdoor log fire – a favourite area of the home where the owners agree that “there is nothing better than stargazing with a roaring fire and an Otago pinot”. Soak in the dreamy atmosphere, dabble in a spot of stargazing, and enjoy the warm glow from the fire as the evening evolves. The big screens inside also offer the perfect space to unwind and enjoy a NZ rugby game cheering on the All Blacks, or park up and enjoy a night of Netflix!

The Beach House is perfect for romantic getaways or large family holidays. The home also offers the ideal space to hold retreats, as well as small group weddings. This luxury holiday home is the perfect excuse to enjoy quality time with your loved ones somewhere special this year. Immerse yourself in the ultimate luxury… it’s time to treat yourself!
