  • Beachfront location with great views - and where the sea is just a few minutes walk away
  • Well-equipped with plenty to do for young and old alike
  • Across from a park with swings, slide, and a half basketball court - perfect for shooting hoops

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, swingball, 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, and a washing machine. Enjoy using the kayak, fishing rods, golf clubs, balls, swingball, 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!

  • Great spot to sit back and relax, with everything you need...

    Great spot to sit back and relax, with everything you need. Plenty of room and a nice cosy wood fire to keep you warm. Nice and handy to Levin and a stones throw from the beach.

  • Location was awesome, the property had everything you could ask for

    Location was awesome, the property had everything you could ask for. It is a dated bach, but that just added to the charm of going back in time to when you did things together as a family. Would happily stay again, if they would have us.

  • The house is well set up and maintained

    The house is well set up and maintained. I think for summer the house and location will be super. Unfortunately we were there during a very cold snap, so it was unusually cold everywhere except for the living area around the fire.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Yes it was a very cold weekend indeed! Please note that there are oil heaters in each of the bedrooms and a large one in the lounge for guest use. We hope to be able to host you again, including in the summer months. Nga mihi.
