Less than a mile from the iconic Opononi Beach, this elegant 2-story cliff-top Holiday Home is located at the Pakanae end of Opononi, on the stunning Hokianga Harbour, and features quality decor & extensive uninterrupted elevated water views.
With multiple self-contained booking configuration options (from 1-Bedroom upstairs apartment to entire 6-Bedroom house) Onepu Moana can accommodate 2-20 guests, and is ideal for self-drive couples, singles, families, and groups.
Hokianga Harbour is the birthplace of Aotearoa NZ! This is where Polynesian explorer Kupe built the first Maori Pa (village) on the hill next to this property, with the anchor stone from his waka (canoe) honoured at the local Marae (community house), and also the esteemed Tane Mahuta God of Waipoua Forest is nearby. [This west-coast Hokianga location is just over an hour’s drive from the east-coast Bay of Islands, which is the heart of Maori-European history. If you want to visit the Bay of Islands, but don’t want to stay in that “tourist mecca” the west coast is divine to chill out in.]
‘Must Do’ activities in the area include a twilight tour with local Maori guide to visit Tane Mahuta in Waipoua Forest, visiting the “MANEA Footprints of Kupe” multi-sensory experience, surfing the sand-dunes, seeing the extraordinary Wairere Boulders, Eggs Bene brunch at BoatShed Cafe deck in Rawene, a beer on the deck of the iconic Opononi Tavern, enjoying a great local Northland chardonnay on the deck of the Heads Hotel in Omapere, plus swimming, fishing, kayaking, jet-skiing, walking treks and cycle trails. So much!
Onepu Moana – a haven where the Hokianga, heaven, history & holidaying all become one.
