  • Directly located on Hawkes Bay cycle trails. Two complimentary bicycles available.
  • 5 minute walk to the beach, join with others who swim every morning @ 9:45, weather permitting.
  • No TV but watch the bird life and sunsets over the lagoon. Relax and renew in peace and quiet.

The cabin is located on my property and you will share only the kitchen and shower facilities with myself. Both are located close to the cabin. You will be 'glamping' in a small but sweet cabin with a very comfortable queen bed and beautiful views over the lagoon from the French doors of your cabin and personal deck. Facilities are simple but comfortable. No electricity in the cabin but plenty of romantic and practical lighting.

The kitchen is basic, shared with myself, and is vegetarian so no meat or fish may be cooked.

A shared lounge for your use with electricity to charge devices, etc. and relax during inclement weather if you get 'cabin fever'. Note there is no TV, instead watch the dusk and sunset over the lagoon. There is a shared outdoor shower with hot water and privacy. A charming bathroom with sink with hot water and a portapotty that will only be used by yourself. All other facilities except your cabin and private deck, are shared with myself. Ask me about a reduced price for one person. The nature of the property and access to facilities are not suitable for someone with mobility issues.

I usually swim with a group of friends at 9am and guests are welcome to join us.

I'm happy to provide information about the area and recommend the local wineries. Pamphlets and maps provided.

Haumoana is a small semirural beach village. There is a dairy and a Four Square nearby, many vineyards, wineries and cafés. There is no public transportation so a car is advisable. It is located 20 minutes from Napier and 10 minutes from Havelock north. I'm located directly on a network of bicycle tracks that go for many kilometers through vineyards and by the sea. You can bike on off-road bike paths along the sea to Napier, the Art Deco City, Havelock a North, or Hastings.

Getting Around

There is no public transport. I am happy to pick you up at the bus station or airport and bring you out here. The grocery store is a 10 minute walk or 5 minute bike ride.

Special conditions: Because of steep bank down to the lagoon property is not suitable for young children. Pathways to facilities are somewhat uneven so not suitable for someone with mobility issues. Smoking fine outside. No candles can be used in cabin. The kitchen is shared and strictly vegetarian so no meat or fish may be cooked. There are two complimentary bicycles Breakfast available @ $14.00 . Minimum stay is three nights. I'm often not able to accommodate same day bookings.

  • My partner and I had a wonderful time staying at this property,...

    My partner and I had a wonderful time staying at this property, we would highly recommend a visit. We adored the little cabin and being semi 'off the grid' it was utterly liberating to be away from the city and fall asleep listening to the sea. Wish we stayed longer! Anita was very welcoming and we spent a fantastic Christmas morning swimming in the sea and having coffee on the beach with her and her friends. We would love to visit again. We have a newfound love for Hawkes Bay. Thank you Anita!

    The amazing location of this cute little cabin makes it a winner. The description given is spot on, but with Anita's thoughtful little 'extras' it makes it even more special. Would love to stay again.
