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.

  • This is a quintessential NZ holiday home - close to the beach,...

    This is a quintessential NZ holiday home - close to the beach, well appointed but not precious. Great outdoor area for activities and the dog. Two visits to date and we will be back.

  • Stoked with this choice

    Stoked with this choice. Really friendly village. Crafty wood worker has added some very nice furniture like the kitchen bench.
