Property Description

Come and enjoy a peaceful and comfortable stay in our modern self contained unit. Attached to the main house, with its own private entrance and deck, you will enjoy magnificent views of the Waiotahi estuary and coast. Explore our 5 acres whilst watching tuis, fantails, native pigeons and Australasian harriers in this beautiful rural environment. Or, stroll down to the estuary to see the oyster catchers and if you are lucky perhaps a bittern.

If you are feeling active Bryans Beach is a short stroll away (3 mins drive) and is a lovely sandy beach for swimming, fishing or kayaking. Borrow our kayaks and enjoy a paddle on nearby Ohiwa Harbour. There are also plenty of interesting local walks with many spectacular bush and coastal views.

We provide generous continental breakfast supplies and our free range chickens can supply you with fresh eggs if you wish. Well behaved pets are welcome and dogs may enjoy the local beach. We have our own friendly cat - Misa.

Situated 12 minutes drive from Opotiki and 30 minutes from Whakatane makes this an ideal base to explore the attractions of the Eastern Bay of Plenty.

Minimum three nights over Christmas/New Year andJanuary peak season, and two nights the rest of the year.

"Dear Louise and Peter, Such a lovely, peaceful, private little hideaway. It was very hard to leave after staying 17 days at Tanglewood. It was delightful to meet you both and of course Misa, the chickens and the Wekas etc :-) We will most surely come back and stay the next time we come back to Ohiwa/Opotiki. Till then, take care and hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Suzanne and Albert"

"Peter and Louise were the most amazing hosts!! They made us feel welcome but also respected our privacy. And what a superb location, we were so grateful to them for sharing their paradise with us!! Our unit was completely self contained.....spacious, clean and cosy with views to die for looking out over the water. Louise had made yummy muffins for us and provided a brilliant selection of continental breakfast necessities, everything anyone could possibly need. As the unit has its own deck and barbeque, we were able to relax in the evening with wine, steak and salad in the lovely well laid out grounds. Then, absolute bliss, watching the sunset over the coast whilst relaxing in the luxurious spa pool. We enjoyed exploring the Ohiwa Harbour and also the main beach which is stunning. We recommend Tanglewood as it is not just a B&B, but a tranquil retreat!!! Also, a big thank you to Peter and Louise for allowing us to bring our little dog, she loved it as well!!"
