Stan and Sue are usually available to help guests plan their local activities. We can help you with all local information including surfing, walking, tramping, birding, kayaking, cycling (road, touring, mountain) and planning your New Zealand trip further afield.
Waihi Beach is only 10 km from Waihi where a very scenic leg of the Hauraki Rail trail ends/begins.
Our beach is very safe for swimming, and during the summer the Waihi Beach Surf life savers have a patrol most days.
There is safe kayaking in the Tauranga Harbour at the Pio / Athenree end of the beach.
There's relatively easy walking access north on the Orokawa - Homunga walk way. 1 hour or less takes you to beautiful Orokawa Bay, but you can choose to walk on to Homunga for a more adventurous tramp.
If you're a mountain biker try the Waihi mountain bike park. It has beginner and advanced tracks. There's currently plans underway to create a mountain bike track for Waihi Beach to Waihi. There are other tracks being formed locally at Waihi Beach too.
We're smoke free.
Sorry, the unit is not suitable for young children.
We do not allow pets.
We have a maximum of 2 guests at anyone time.
Stan and I are both in our 60's. Stan is a retired teacher, and I'm a retired library manager.
We're both outdoor people. We still regularly road cycle and Stan is an enthusiastic mounain biker. We have both done a wee bit of cycle touring and look forward to doing more.
I have a sea kayak and regularly get out for long paddles on the Tauranga harbour around the shellbanks and more secluded areas.
We're both learning to surf. Aiden at Waihi Beach Surf School offers lessons throughout most of the year. We're more often off our boards than on, but we still enjoy the challenge of learning a new sport!
Stan's orienteered for decades and still competes.
We both regularly walk and I've tramped over most of the local Kaimai and Coromandel ranges over the years. I'm still a keen member of Forest & Bird and have a knowledge of local botany and birds.
We are also volunteer radio operators at the local Waihi Beach Coastguard.
Over the years Stan has traveled extensively throughout the world, but I'm a late convert to travelling. Our next trip is to England to catch up with family, to canal boat, cycle and genealogise.
We're independent travellers and will be happy to help you with your adventures in our patch.
