This is a lovely spacious villa which has been furnished and decorated for families or groups to enjoy.

It is 5 minutes from Waikanae Beach or town and set in a quiet street. A short drive takes you to Wainui Beach. It is a great place from which to go on day trips to explore the East Coast.

Outdoor living is a feature with a roomy verandah, equiped for outdoor dining, and a large, fully fenced back lawn with outdoor furniture and shady trees , which makes it safe and private for families.

There is a large lounge and family room which make it ideal for families to share. The house has been used very satisfactorily for family groups celebrating family occasions or "get togethers" and for multiple family groups.

The park is very near and has a children's playground. It is also a great spot to walk from with the paved river walk nearby or bush/hill walks within close proximity.

  • We had such an excellent stay at The Verandah over Queens Birthday...

    We had such an excellent stay at The Verandah over Queens Birthday weekend. The set up is perfect for 2 families staying together, with each getting 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. The place was nice and clean, with all the necessities provided for. And the wood burner in the kitchen kept us warm and dry, when the weather outside was stormy. Thanks so much!

  • Thank you so much Kathy

    Thank you so much Kathy. We arrived closed to 6 pm on Friday and the heater was on. Milk and the mandarins were very appreciated. Clean and all of the facilities were there. The electric blankets made it feel just like home. Plenty of towels etc. We will book again. Please thank your cleaners who also left their cell numbers in case their was a problem.
