You can now stay in the global award winning First Light House on a fabulous site overlooking the sweep of Waimarama Beach in Hawke’s Bay.

A simply stunning location, and the bach was a brilliant design. The modern design is starting to show signs of normal wear and tear - and the property owner is doing a great job at addressing this. A nearly perfect property that we would thoroughly recommend.
