Ataahua Wainui Beach House

 A good example of a traditional Kiwi bach, spacious, had everything we needed, and an unbeatable location right on the beach. Short walk to the local store /cafe/takeaway, and 5 minute drive to Gisborne for everything else. 

Wainui Beach Unit- Gisborne

 The Bach was really nice very spacious and very clean and tidy and a few extra touches that made you feel welcome. Very nice pleasant owners. I would love to stay there again. The location is very nice just a short walk to the most beautiful beach. The weather was typical of Gisborne hot and dry so perfect for a holiday. Wish we could have stayed longer. Also if you need to go into Gisborne it is a short drive away with no traffic. 

Wainui Beach Hideaway - close to the beach

 Liked the comforts of the property - lovely kitchen, 2 bathrooms (not that we needed them for 2 people) and the privacy. Very central for lovely walks. Close to the beach.
