Caught out by the demand for accommodation for the Mission concert, we had to look further out of Napier - and found ourselves in Waimarama in this gorgeous eco house. It made for a fabulous couple of days away. First Light house is perfect for a couple, beautifully fitted out and in an idyllic location. Dealing with the owner was a breeze, instructions for arrival were clear, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience overall.
We loved our stay in Waimarama at the First light bach. The place is modern and well equipped and has great areas for entertaining both inside and outside. You can spend hours lying on beanbags sunbathing watching the waves, reading or enjoying a cool drink. We would happily stay here again!
Had wonderful time at First Light and enjoying what Waimarama has to offer, regardless of some dodgy weather. Once we had found the place (arrived later in the evening) we were very pleasantly surprised. Highly recommend chilling on the beanbags with a drink and book in hand whilst enjoying the breathtaking views.
We spent three days at First Light house and really enjoyed our time. It's worth it just for the house alone, which we found was the perfect size for a couple. Great spot to relax, but close enough to all that Hawke's Bay has to offer.
With its triple glassed windows you are cacooned from the weather and able to take in the beach and farmland views. The buildings form is engaging with plenty of spaces to chill out in both inside and out. The kitchen is small and functional. There is a Nisspresso machine which you need to bring your own capsules. We really enjoyed our stay.
