Architectural icom the 70s combines rustic charm with west coast magic. Designed to make the west coast living a one with nature experience; sea, winds, the constant hum of the surf beats its drum as the holiday maker sits snug inside. Newly refurbished!!!

The three level home designed above engineer/ building specifications in the 1970s for an all weather to embrace the west coast environs. The result is a lived experience; high winds and storms have rocked this house but it has held true to design, defying all weathers. The sound of the waves close by lull the occupants to sleep. There is always a sheltered deck to enjoy as the 4 decks face North, West, East and South.
A large main open space living area opens on to two of the four decks. The indoor / outdoor flow creates an enjoyable living as part of the elements, sea and sky. Night viewing of the southern sky from the decks is bright star lit.

Really interesting beautiful house, very cleverly set up to enjoy views of the ocean. Loved being so close to the beach, which was great for the kids to go boogie-boarding. Best biggest comfy corner window seat overlooking the beach.
We loved this place. It was so unusual. So many interesting features - mezzanine, coloured glass windows, large tree poles throughout the house, the window seat where you can watch the beach, and of course the many decks. It is so close to the beach, where swimming is so easy. My favourite spot being the window seat where you could watch the vehicles enter the beach throughout the day. Hours of entertainment watching some of them get stuck and how others just helped them out, true NZ attitude to life. And sunsets from the front deck are amazing. For us a perfect rustic holiday home. Highly recommend.
Recommend as a great place to stay at the beach.
