There is plenty to do at Waitarere beach. It is a short walk for fishing and swimming on the long sandy beach.We recommend long lining or going to the River mouths of the Manawatu or Ohau Rivers for fishing. There are two takeaway shops,a restaurant, and Waitarere Bowling Club in the village. It is only five minutes to the Waitarere Forest to the north or south for walking and mountain biking.Store your bikes in our garage.

Our three bedroom double glazed batch was extended in 2011 by 'National Registered House of the Year' winner Brent Hughes (under $250,000). The Interior design is by Liz Easton. It has all the amenities you need including a dishwasher for mum! There is plenty of room for the family, and a heat pump in the lounge kitchen area, which heats right through the house. Large tree for the kids to swing off on a Large section.

Waitarere beach is a 10-minute drive to Levin, where there are many family attractions including the pool with two hydro slides for the children as well as a huge adventure playground. There is also a golf course at Moutere Road, Levin. Mobile phone reception is good.

A further 20 minutes down the road is a small township called Otaki, which has now become a bargain hunter’s destination, with many factory outlet stores.

Enjoy your time away with us, whether it be a quiet weekend, or an action filled holiday for the family, Waitarere is a great destination, which will please everyone.

  • very tidy and comfortable and suitable for our needs

    very tidy and comfortable and suitable for our needs. Hot water cylinder not quite big enough for seven hot showers after a day running in the forest, but everything else was fine.
