Bring friends and/or family to stay in this 3 bedroom, 2 storey beach house that's well-equipped with all you need for a fantastic holiday. There's plenty of room for larger groups and it's cosy enough for smaller groups too.

Fill your days with swimming, fishing, gathering tuatua, whitebaiting when in season, and kayaking or playing cricket, volleyball, or 'pitch-n-putt' on the lawn or shooting hoops at the park (all equipment and balls supplied) - or simply explore with beach and bush walks. Alternately, relax on the deck or in the conservatory and soak up the sun and peace and quiet. In the evenings, crank up the BBQ while playing darts, and enjoy the sunset.

For the colder months, there's a wood burner in the living area with firewood supplied - and oil heaters in each of the bedrooms, and in the living area also.

Explore the fantastic Horowhenua region including the Papaitonga Scenic Reserve, Tararua Forest Park and other walking and tramping tracks, other nearby beaches, and the local golf course which is just down the road. The closest town, Levin, is less than 10 minutes away and has restaurants, pubs, cinema complex, aquatic centre, and Adventure Park - a fantastic playground for all ages. Make sure you also check out the Otaki outlet stores for a holiday bargain. There are even a few wineries in the region which are open daily.

The beach house has a fully equipped kitchen, including an electric frypan - great for making tuatua fritters, and a washing machine. Enjoy using the kayak, fishing rods, golf clubs, balls, cricket and volleyball sets, and gazebo. For indoors there's bowls, darts, books, DVDs, cards, and board games, as well as freeview and a few SKY TV channels (or bring your own SKY card for more).

Hokio Beach is a really special place - it's like stepping back in time to when things were easy and slow-paced - and Hokio Beachfront Retreat is the perfect place to enjoy it in. We look forward to hearing from you!

    Clean and tidy. warm, close to a fantastic beach. The kids spent half their time on the sandhills. The bach had all we needed. Glad we have found this quiet settlement. Very good comms. Tino pai.

  • Fabulous location - you couldn't get any closer to the beach

    Fabulous location - you couldn't get any closer to the beach. Well-equipped with games for the kids. Spacious, but still with a bach-like atmosphere and "period decor". We'd definitely like to go back :)
