Description

  • Award Winning Eco Bach
  • Stunning Views from Elevated Lightening Ridge Site

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. This much awarded eco home, designed and built by University of Victoria architectural students, went on display in Wellington, then it was shipped to Washington to compete in an international competition where it won first place in engineering, second for architecture and third place overall . Now this sassy solar home of the future has been permanently sited on Lightning Ridge overlooking the white sands of Waimarama Beach , a twenty minute scenic drive from Havelock North in Hawke’s Bay.

The First Light House combines energy efficiency with architectural excellence. It’s quite simply a beautiful home to stay in, while being sustainable with loads of smart technology built into the much admired house.

The house has amazing indoor – outdoor flow with more than 100 metres of decks overlooking the beautiful surf beach . With sweeping views down to Cape Kidnappers and out to sea to Bare Island, the location is special, perfect for such a special house. The house sleeps six, but ideally we would recommend that young families of 4 or 2 couples will be best suited to the size and sleeping arrangements. But please watch this space as planned additions over the NZ winter 2016 will allow for additional bedrooms and living spaces.

If you are looking for a holiday or short break in a green, clean lovely bach, The First Light House is ready to take bookings.

Special conditions: Families preferred and Pets allowed only with prior notice and approval.

  • Wonderful location

    Wonderful location. The views are stunning. The house is so cosy and quiet. A joy to come home to. We had 2 nights where it was only 4 degrees, the house only needed the odd burst of extra heating. We wish we had that kind of energy efficiency in our own house. Would recommend anyone interested in sustainable technology spend time there. It's well worth it.

  • Property is in a fantastic location with stunning views

    Property is in a fantastic location with stunning views. Although the bach is showing signs of wear and tear internally. We had an issue with cleanliness on arrival but it was mutually resolved via communication.

  • fantastic views

    fantastic views. amazing design. place stays completely warm in the middle of winter with its magical triple glazed windows. only downside was that there was no where to put recycling. the solar power offsets that detail though :-)
