'The Mint House' is a classic Waitarere Beach Bach - a real home away from home.

Open plan kitchen/dining and large living room that opens out through french doors onto the flat, fully fenced, generous backyard. We have a well equipped kitchen for the chef in the family.

Quiet cul-de-sac location.

We have lovely neighbours on either side whom we have known for the last 14+ years.

This property is ideal for two families of 4 to share or have it all to yourself.

Waitarere Beach has a swim between the flags area over the summer months, there is also the peaceful Waitarere Forest for walks or cycling.

For winter guests there are heaters in all the bedrooms and an efficient woodburner to keep you warm in winter after a long walk on the beach, plenty of books and board games available also.

Locally, there is a Fish n Chip shop, Four Square store, and two cafes nearby, plus the Waitarere Bowling Club and the Hydrabad shipwreck in the dunes to the south of the surf club.

Levin is 15km away and a great place to shop and play, especially at the Aquatic Centre. There are movie theatres too.

  • We loved staying at "The Mint House"

    We loved staying at "The Mint House". It was warm and cozy (loved the fireplace). So bright and sunny with a fully fenced yard so the kids could play and we didn't have to watch them constantly. Great games and toys, kids loved them. Nice walk to the beach and through the Forrest. Bread at the 4 Square was amazing. This place had absolutely everything we needed. Thank you so much for sharing your Bach with us :-)
