Beachside accommodation perfectly located for exploring the East Cape region, fishing Waihau Bay, or relaxing in an idyllic beachside setting in this beautiful bay.

We are situated by the safe and sandy beach (pictured) considered to be perhaps the best in the East Cape area.

After settling into your self-contained roomy apartment, relax – enjoy the fishing, amazing ocean views, or exploring the beach - then finish you day soaking up the spectacular sunsets of Waihau Bay.

The space
If you are looking for a beautiful unspoiled beachfront holiday destination, Oceanside at Waihau Bay in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, East Cape Region, New Zealand is an excellent choice.

While this apartment The Bach is located at the rear of the main building, guests staying here will enjoy their own views of the water, through the large sunny windows.
Directly in front, there is the main building of Oceanside, with the view to the ocean open on either side - our sunny spacious Bach at the Back enjoys some elevation, which adds to the views of the water from here.
There is one big bedroom with a queen bed and a double/single bunk bed in the spacious open plan living area. The well equipped kitchen has a microwave and gas hob.
Enjoy your own wee deck with seating to soak up the Oceanside ambiance.
We also have boat parking available, on site.

You will find your accommodation comfortable and well equipped with all you need, but the most special part of Oceanside is this amazing location - soak up the peace, walk the sandy beach, throw a line in and catch some dinner! watch the ocean.... and don't forget to take time for the breathtaking sunsets.

Oceanside Apartments are the perfect place for a stop on your East Cape travels, or a longer break...
perhaps a couples retreat in a quiet but beautiful beach setting ....or a family holiday without the hustle and bustle of more populated places.

The beach is a family's paradise... sandy stretches, safe swimming, snorkeling, rock pools to explore, and at low tide – perfect for a game of cricket or volley ball.

An escape anytime for anyone – listen to the waves, watch the sea, walk the beach, watch striking sunsets, see the incredible sky at night - no light pollution.

The fisherman's dream location – whether it is a spot of surf-casting off the beach or rocks, or the renowned fishing of all types.

Accommodation – we offer three large self-contained apartments, each with separate bedrooms sleeping from 1 to 7 people. Enjoy the fabulous views while using our fully equipped kitchens, or relaxing in the large open plan living areas.
If you are a larger group, we have accomodation for 15 people in total.
Oceanside is well placed for exploring the areas around: Whanarua Bay, Cape Runaway, Lottin Point, Hicks Bay, Te Araroa, and the East Cape Lighthouse – all within a 45 minute drive.

NEARBY: while Waihau Bay is pleasantly removed from the hustle and bustle of more commercial areas, you can get all the usual essentials.

Waihau Bay Lodge: meals and a hotel bar,5km along the Bay.
Waihau Bay Store: situated right beside the Lodge, for again takeaways, coffee, groceries and fuel pumps.

Well known as one of New Zealand's premier fishing locations, there is so much more...

The East Cape is a remote area, with beautiful coastal scenery, rocky foreshores, driftwood strewn beaches as well as safe sandy swimming beaches.

Largely untouched by development, there are no high-rise or fast food outlets here - simply pristine ocean, clean rivers, back country beef and sheep stations, clear waterfalls, a region steeped in history.

It is a haven for those seeking peace, rest and relaxation as well as a playground for active adventurers, and a fisherman's dream.

The temperate climate make it a perfect year round holiday destination.
