Front Beach Bliss
Front Beach Bliss
Located on the dreamy New Zealand coast, Front Beach Bliss has incredible and expansive views of Maramaratotara Bay, land to breathe in, and comfortable living that will make you feel at home away from home. Impressive interior upgrades lead to the speechless coastal seascape that surrounds you with natural beauty and leaves you with unexplainable peace the moment you arrive. The property is within 15-20 mins of two of the best beaches in New Zealand; Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach (where you can dig your own thermal pool on the beach).
As you step into the home, you will be charmed by the bright and airy open concept living space with contemporary and modern touches. The kitchen has been upgraded with stainless steel appliances, a double fridge, open shelving, and four counter seats. You can enjoy the scenery while you cook from the oversized peninsula and serve your favorite meals at the dining table for an additional eight guests. Feel free to turn on the stereo and lose yourself to the music and the breeze floating in through the open windows and doors. The calming colors and beach-themed decor add to the ambiance of the living space, along with the comfy couches where you can rest after a long day outside.
Make your way out onto the back deck, and all the wonderful places you and your loved ones can laze around will excite you. There are plenty of lounge seats, dining options, a grill to barbeque to your heart's content, and the beach beyond where you can spread out a blanket and enjoy a lovely meal al fresco. The impressive land size allows you to use your surfboards, yard games, sporting equipment, and beach essentials provided for your every desire.
Amenities included for your use are:
Four bikes and helmets
Two small kayaks and one large kayak
A large foldable table tennis table
A basketball hoop and balls

Peaceful and perfect
This is an excellent location, the beach was so quiet and we loved being able to just slip out the door, down the steps and sit to watch sail boats or read. It is long enough for a good walk, lots of shells and soft sand. The ferry to Whitianga is convenient and kind of unique, town had everything you could want or need. Home was well equipped, would be a great place to bring a family, we only used a small percentage of the rooms. Rooms are not large, but we were there for the beach, so not a big deal to us. The sky at night was incredible from the deck. Loved riding the bikes over to Whitianga. This was the end of a four week excursion for us, so we enjoyed the quiet very much. Owners communicated all the information we needed and it was an easy in and out. Thanks for sharing your home.”

We fell in love with Front Beach and all the luxe and thoughtful touches at this delightful property. Bridget has thought of everything—from the welcome gift of New Zealand goodies to the paddle boards and kayaks and everything in between. The home consists of two units, both smartly designed to maximize views of the bay and blue sky. The bird-themed art throughout the home adds to the peaceful vibe. The location is perfect—we felt like we had our own private beach and then just minutes later we could be enjoying a coffee in the bustling town of Whitianga via the ferry. The SeaCaves boat tour was a highlight. Don’t miss a chance to experience this special place.”

Amazing location and fabulous hosts!
We arrived at Front Beach Bliss in February 2023, just as the cyclone was coming in. While the rain and wind pounded around us we felt protected and comfortable in this cozy space and enjoyed amazing views. The hosts were very kind and checked on us constantly and made us feel cared for. The storm did lift after a couple of days and we were able to enjoy the amazing beach that felt completely private. We would love to go back and explore this beautiful area.”
