  • Large private sheltered and fully fenced back yard that is safe for children and dogs.

This cute cottage was a railways holiday home and retains the feel of a traditional bach. We have renovated by opening up the kitchen which gives a light and airy feel. Bathroom and laundry are both new. The cottage is one house back from the beach in a quiet cul de sac and the lovely big back yard provides shelter and privacy all day.

The Wainui Store is a short walk along the beach for basic supplies, great takeaways and ice creams. Wainui is a popular surfing and swimming beach with a surf lifesaving club and lifeguards a bit further north along the beach. Gisborne is a short 10 minute drive away for the Farmer's Market on Saturday and a great variety of cafes and restaurants. Also in the region are many great wineries and walking opportunities.

Special conditions: Smoking strictly outside only. Pets welcomed with prior approval. Tank water only so please use sensibly.

  • WOW! what a little gem this was

    WOW! what a little gem this was. From crisp linen - comfy beds - a short hop to the beach - great outdoor area - and a new kitchen and bathroom that completely suited this batch. WE absolutely loved this place. Its what we love as a 'batch' being able to drag sand from your feet then have all the comforts of home. 11/10!
