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: Dogs OK, but no cats please! Normal check out is 10am, check in 2pm (unless by prior arrangement)

  • Beautiful setting, spacious and cosy

    Beautiful setting, spacious and cosy. Even the coldest days are nice here, the good wood fire makes it warm and very comfortable. The bedrooms and bathrooms are in perfect condition.

  • Fabulous! Location is stunning

    Fabulous! Location is stunning. The house has that "WOW" factor. Well designed. Kitchen had everything and more. Warm with floor heating and the wood burner means it's a great all year round destination. We were very lucky with the weather but there are books and games to entertain. If you want to treat yourself this is the place to do it.

  • Great property with awesome sea views

    Great property with awesome sea views. Lovely fire and under floor heating. Very modern and spacious property. Great place for all seasons. Close to Otaki for shopping and we loved the picture theatre at Waikanae. Comfy couches and wine/coffee which was the best way to enjoy a great movie on a wet day. Will definitely stay again.
