Blue Distance Boutique Oceanfront Accommodation is a luxury property nestled in a peaceful oceanfront location just minutes from Opotiki township. Boasting front-row views of Moutohora (Whale) and Whakaari (White) Islands, the studio is immediately adjacent to a reserve and is just steps from one of New Zealand's most stunning beaches. The sounds of the ocean are ever present in this immaculately appointed property that features a large, private deck with sweeping views of the Bay of Plenty.

The space
Everything about this beachfront accommodation says quality, from the tiled floors to modern, high spec fit out in the kitchen and bathroom. All windows and doors are double glazed, and the studio has both heating and air conditioning.

There is a built-in electric ceramic cooktop, microwave and small fridge/freezer in the kitchen to accommodate extended stays.

The wall-mounted flatscreen is internet connected with access to hundreds of apps, including Netflix. If you don't have a Netflix account, you're welcome to use our guest account free of charge. Some apps grant you free access. Others will require you to have an account.

There is also an easy-to-use blue tooth stereo so you can enjoy your own music while you relax on the deck at sunset.

Guests also have access to an outdoor shower and fish filleting bench and sink, if desired.

Where you’ll be

Waiotahe, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand

Our local beach is typically safe for swimming, with comfortable summer water temperatures. There's also great surfing and surf-casting at your doorstep. There are several excellent hiking and mountain biking trails nearby, as well as a proper town boat ramp in nearby Opotiki.

If you're bringing your own trailered boat, there's plenty of safe parking on the adjacent reserve.

You are welcome to use one of our sit-on-top kayaks Lifejackets are provided, free of charge. (Use of the kayak is at the host's discretion and typically is subject to wind, swell, weather and guests' previous boating experience).

At low tide, you can even gather your own Pipis at the nearby Waiotahe River estuary.

The Waiotahe Drifts community is family friendly with quiet streets and wide open spaces.

We are a (semi) retired couple, and spend most of our time in Waiotahe Drifts, fishing on the Bay of Plenty when we can, taking walks on the beach, hiking and biking local trails and, of course, relaxing. We've been Airbnb hosts since 2015.

During your stay

Your hosts, Ross and Sharon, live in the adjacent home, and enjoy meeting and hosting travellers from across New Zealand and the world.

When the weather cooperates, we're open to taking guests out for a cruise on our safe and comfortable 7.5m Grady-White Seafarer. Depending on the time of year, we can fish for snapper, gurnard, kingfish, or seasonal gamefish, including yellowfin and albacore tuna. These arrangements must be made separately, and are conditional.
