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!)

  • This is the nicest beach house I've ever stayed in

    This is the nicest beach house I've ever stayed in. Stunning design and a real pleasure to wake up in. Waikanae has loads to do, some great restaurants, a good warm local outdoor pool, and a nice beach. The house is beautiful. While Pete and Michelle don't generally have small children staying (because the house consists of two separate modules and the master bedroom is separated from the other two bedrooms via an outside walkway) it worked perfectly for us, 2 adults 2 kids, and 2 grandparents.

    Harakeke is a stunning place to stay, beautifully set up, with amazing views of Waikanae Beach and Kapiti Island. A modern beach bach, it is set up with everything that you would need to enjoy your stay. Peter and Michelle are so generous to be sharing this gorgeous place with other people on Bookabach. It is a gem.
