Description

  • Sweeping 180 degree sea and coastal views from a comfy house just steps from the beach
  • Equipped with woodburner to keep cosy in winter
  • Wide wrap-around decks, outside tables and seating

Cathedral-roofed modern beach house with spectacular views of the Wairarapa coast all the way down to Castlepoint. Just steps away from the beach and overlooking a reef where you can find paua and crayfish. Good swimming, fishing and surfing but at its best when you just want to chill out. It's great in winter as there is a woodburner to gather around and keep the house cosy.

The house has a huge three-sided wrap-around deck with plenty of outdoor seating - you can find shelter outside most days, even in winter. You can barbecue on the extra deck beside kitchen - also a great place to sit and look over the dunes to the sea and hills.

The house is well kitted-out, but we've tried not to lose the kiwi bach feel. Fireplace and books, magazines and games to entertain. Sea views everywhere. Downstairs has been turned into a games room with pool table, table tennis and table football. There's a kayak (with life jackets) available to explore the reef or paddle up the Akitio river.

All in all it is a much-loved, spacious, family bach. It's become part of other family's holidays as well as our own. We're glad that so many of our guests come back year after year.

Special conditions: Check in: 3pm; check out midday – but some flexibility out of peak times and if guests ask first. Smoking allowed outside only. Reduced tariff available for larger groups, and longer stays out of high season. Gated deck, but unfenced garden

    The location is excellent and so are the stunning views from the deck to the inside of the house what let it down for us was the uncomfortable setting in the lounge to me it really needs all the furniture updated along with the television which didn't go. The house has so much potential but felt like its a bit neglected.

    "Another fine visit - real hygge" This is the ideal place to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Even during the unsettled weather of spring there are lots to do. In the Danish context - a place to cultivate hygge. We will certainly be back.

    This is my dream bach - it has everything you need to be cosy, to cook, to keep the kids entertained - while offering hours of pleasure just watching the wild sea from an elevated nook. Lovely beach to walk. Next time we'll try the fishing...we ran out of time doing nothing!

  • Lovely home to stay at

    Lovely home to stay at.. Close to the beach and has excellent an view.. Has absolutely everything you need for a great break. Didn't use many of the extras that are on offer due to staying in winter but was just what we needed for a relaxing getaway.
