Kia Ora (hello) and haere mai (welcome) to Hokianga-Nui-A-Kupe, meaning “the place of Kupe’s great return”, these days known as the HOKIANGA, located on the dramatic West Coast of Northland …  about 3 hours south of NZ’s northernmost tip at Cape Reinga, and only about an hour or so away from the east coast tourism mecca of the Bay of Islands (Paihia & Kerikeri) – and all of these locations are part of the Far North district … there’s not many countries you can drive from its West Coast beaches to its East Coast beaches in one hour!

The Hokianga (“the returning place”) is one of the most relatively unspoilt parts of Aotearoa (NZ), with natural beauty here that is unlike anywhere else in the country.

We are so pleased you are considering staying at Onepu Moana (“sandy sea”), pronounced Or-neh-poo Mo-arna. Whether this is for a family holiday, or corporate retreat, or a group of friends, if you decide to book we do hope you will enjoy your experience of staying in our Bach (NZ slang for a family holiday home) in this little slice of Kiwi paradise!

We would wish you and your whanau (family), e hua (friends), and/or hoa mahi (work colleagues) a very special stay. We hope you will treasure this whare (home) as much as we do … especially our tamariki (children), and one day our mokupuna (grandbabies).

Whether you are spiritual or not, most visitors leave the Hokianga feeling it is somehow tapu (sacred) … and regardless of the weather, it always has a mystical and dramatic beauty!

Luv, Mark & Kathy
