The house is set on a large flat fully fenced section surrounded by native NZ trees which is absolutely ideal for kids and the family pet. It attracts all day sun and is ideal for summer BBQs, backyard sports or just lazing around on the deck.

There is one large Queen room with built in wardrobes and another smaller room, which is better suited to children or 1 adult. All main conveniences available including TV, washing machine, microwave etc. Plenty of room on the huge corner plot and just a short stroll down to Waikanae Beach. Very popular with dog owners - we welcome our four legged friends who can freely investigate the secure garden.

  • This Kiwi bach was excellent

    This Kiwi bach was excellent. Attention to detail; scrabble game, soft boiled egg holders & old-fashioned Kiwiana was lovely. Sheltered spot.

  • Absolutely loved staying here

    Absolutely loved staying here. The cottage had everything we could possibly want, and the bird life was an added bonus. We did some amazing walks on the beach which is incredibly close. I think we all (including our dog) came home for a rest. Would highly recommend this property, loved it.

    The location was wonderful, just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach. The property is well fenced with 5 ft fencing and suitable for large dogs. It,s a good idea to check which day the gardener comes especially if you have dogs on the loose - just to make sure he closes the gates and doesn,t get frightened by the dogs. The house is small but comfortable and well equipped. The only thing missing was an electric blanket although there were plenty of blankets and an air conditioner.
