It is a short stroll to the nearby shop, playground and beach. Waimarama is a fantastic place to come for a family holiday, it is only a 25 minute drive from from Havelock North or 45 minutes to Napier. Amazing wineries and bike trails close by, it really is a great place for the whole family.

  • We had a great stay at this property

    We had a great stay at this property. A huge amount of space so never felt on top of each other. The house had everything we needed. The location was great with just 10 min stroll with the kids to the beach.

  • Good bach with kids as big living area, plenty of room outside...

    Good bach with kids as big living area, plenty of room outside and lots of bunk beds. Well supplied kitchen. Décor is sparse and sofas are well-loved - could do with a throw or a few cushions. Also would have liked hand soap as I didn't think to bring that with us!

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for your feedbac, it is really helpful. Agreed, we need some cushions etc but unfortunately things get quite grubby and trashed over the busy period with so many families through the bach. Sorry about the hand soap, we normally have it stocked up but must have run out. We are planning on giving everything a freshen up after the silly season.

  • Generally a nice place in a good location - ten mins walk...

    Generally a nice place in a good location - ten mins walk to beach and 5 to the dairy. Well equipped kitchen and laundry. Bedroom layout was a bit weird having to walk through the bunk rooms to get to the others. There was a huge deck and bbq to use. There were a few things that need some diy attention that would improve the bach but nothing major.

    Thanks for your feedback Brian, we are at the stage where we need to have a freshen up and plan to do that after the busy season.
