Description

  • Beachfront
  • Sheltered
  • Gob-smacking design

Located on the beachfront with direct beach access in northern Waikanae Beach, Harakeke looks over the Waimea Stream Estuary to Kapiti Island.

Never before available to guests, Harakeke is a multi-award winning (NZ Institute of Architects 2015, Master Builders 2015) modern kiwi bach designed by Geoff Fletcher and built by Harlem Build to replace our previous bach “Spinifex". Harakeke was featured by Stuff as one of the top 10 holiday homes for 2015 (Dec 15, New Zealand’s best holiday homes provide plenty of wow factor").

Relaxed, carefree indoor/outdoor living is a reality with a private sheltered patio straight off the living room. Harakeke has all the benefits of unobstructed beach front views, and is sunny & very sheltered.

If you can drag yourself away from the view, Harakeke is within easy (5 min) walking distance of restaurants & cafes, a source of provisions & fine wines, golf course, tennis court and interesting parks & reserves. Harakeke has, in-core floor heating, gas water & cooking, and a wood burner for warmth and ambience for those colder winter nights. With mains pressure continuous flow water heating there is plenty of hot water, and apart from the standard inside showers (with Methvan SatinJet heads), and inside and outside baths, a hot outside shower is a touch of luxury for after swimming or at night...

Special conditions: No parties please - you must ask us if you are intending having more folk around than stated on the booking from please. Dogs are OK, but only in the lounge/kitchen area please (ie. not in the bedrooms). No cats please! Normal check out is 10am, check in 2pm (unless by prior arrangement). (Please note, just in case you missed it, that Harakeke is a TV- & Wifi-free zone...however, there is good mobile coverage!)

  • Beautiful Architecturally designed house, we really enjoyed our stay

    Beautiful Architecturally designed house, we really enjoyed our stay. The house had everything we needed and then some. Loved being so close to the beach, and the views of Kapiti Island are fantastic.
