A very special historic holiday home right on beautiful Mangakuri Beach.

Mangakuri is a holiday paradise for swimming, boogie boarding, fishing, surfcasting, boating, sunbathing, long beach walks and playing in the rock pools.

"Waione" has been in the same family for over a century. It was converted into a holiday house from the original farm woolshed in the 1930s.

There's a generous living room filled with historic photographs which has a big open fire; a roomy sun porch with great views out to sea and a large hall with a table tennis table. There's one bathroom with a bath and overhead shower and another hot shower outside.

The property is ideal for family holidays - it can comfortably accommodate up to 8 people.

The house has spacious decks front and back and a woodshed with a good supply of firewood.

There are plenty of board games, cards and bach books.

This is a much loved holiday home on a magical beach. Many families who book a holiday at "Waione" keep on coming back.

    AMAZING. Old school holiday that was better than staying in a 5 star hotel! Loved everything about the house, location and our experience.

  • Waione is Hawkes Bay secret

    Waione is Hawkes Bay secret. My family decided that we could stay forever! There is an amazing aura that you feel when you arrive. Your Problems seem to disappear. We felt very privileged to be there. Thank you !
