Chalet Surf -set by the sea and backed by the hills, this unique accommodation offers a funky yet relaxed style of beach living.

The "cubby hole" bunk beds are in a seperate part of the open plan/studio style are a perfect holiday option for either a family or couple.

There are 2 single bunks and one queensize bed .

With its own sunny courtyard area and outdoor shower( perfect for a rinse off after a surf or swim) this property lends itself to holiday makers.

The Chalet Surf(Okitu) is more at the north end of Wainui Beach. To the south stroll along to "Pines" where the local surf club patrols during the summer and then a bit further along take a walk at low tide to Tuahine point( a derelict lighthouse) and around the rocks.

To the north you can take the track or beach and discover the historic sperm whale grave site and then continue up the hill to take in the magnificent views of Wainui settlement,Makarori and Mahia peninsular.

In walking distance down the road there is a great dairy with all your supply needs PLUS great ice cream!!

Town is a short 5 min drive away with plenty of cafes,bars and spots to soak up the sun and take in the scenery on offer.

We offer our visitors the perfect resting base for an exciting stay in the Tairawhiti Region. Surfing and fishing is simply across the road on a white sand filled beach, with excellent skindiving (snorkling) only 5 minutes walk.

Wake up early and be the first to the sun rise in the east.

    Right opposite the beach; air conditioning was great! ; accommodation ideal for us, great location - easy to bike or drive into Gisborne but sufficiently far away to feel away from it all.

  • Funky place to stay, right over the road from the beach

    Funky place to stay, right over the road from the beach. The "cubby beds" were great and the living space huge! Enjoyed having breakfast on the outside table and then wandering over the road with a coffee to check the surf (for whanau in oz!). Would like to come back with a bigger group to make the most of the space.

    The place was clean and spacious, however more of a dorm style (not what we expected) so better for a groups of people. Would not recommend for a couple. Right across from the beach which is fantastic!

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for comment- of course you were in the cubby hole style unit because you had a dog that required attention and so apartment not an option.!
