Family Friendly at Ruakaka Surf Club Beach (WIFI)

Family-friendly holiday home in Ruakaka
Set up for simple, relaxed beach living but with all the comforts of home. You will be able to spread out and enjoy the good sized lounge/dining and kitchen area being the hub of the home. Let the children escape off to their separate living area (the internal garage has been converted into a second lounge), so they have their own space to unwind and watch TV after a big day at the beach.

We have installed unlimited WIFI at the house so you can stay in touch with the world outside. Great for those who need to catch up on some work or those who need to be connected (Yes I have teenage children!)

Other essential comforts include a bathroom and a separate ensuite, a sunny private patio area at the back of the house extending the living/dining area, unlimited internet access and a bluetooth stereo to play your tunes and relax.

5/5 Excellent

Great house close to beach
We spent a weekend with friends in Ruakaka. 4 Adults, 1 toddler and 2 infants. The neighborhood is ideal for visitors with younger kids. Beach is just a short stroll away. Chris was a great host, very friendly and caring. The house is very spacious, clean and offers everything you need. Definitely coming back for a longer stay.

5/5 Excellent

A beautiful spot
Overall our stay was absolutely wonderful. The property I think undersells itself on the listing - the bedrooms are larger in real life than they appear. The building is modern and clean. It's a great spot. It's got all the amenities you could hope for. It's spacious and bright with lots of parking available. Only snag was we couldn't get the pullout sofa to work - it was a bit janky and wouldn't lie flat, so didn't really function as a bed. We just took the mattress off and lay it on the floor so still had enough space for everyone to sleep.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect for our requirements, modern tidy house. Very easy to deal with and helpful owner. Thank you, we will be back.

4/5 Good

5/5 Excellent

Highly recommend!
House has everything you need including a good bbq and functional kitchen. Location is ideal - its only a short 5/10 min walk to the beach and it is BEAUTIFUL. Easily one of the best beaches in NZ! Thank you so much for letting us stay Chris :)
