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: Smoking allowed outside only. Reduced tariff available for stays of 3 nights or longer but out of high season only. Ungated deck and unfenced garden

  • Everything you could want for a sunny or rainy stay in Akitio

    Everything you could want for a sunny or rainy stay in Akitio. Being at the end of the road meant it was very quiet and views to the beach and the southern coastline were spectacular.

    Thank you Katherine for an awesome stay at your bach this Xmas - despite the southerly gales, we had an amazing time - the views from the bach are spectacular, there are lots of different places to sit and soak up the vistas, from all corners of the house. The kids loved the table tennis and the ease of walking down to the beach. We'll be back! Thanks again!

    My grandparents and I came for a quick getaway; we had an absolutely wonderful time, and made some lovely memories. The Akitio house couldn't have been more perfect. We will definitely be going back. Katherine has thought of everything that makes a getaway easy, stress free, and pleasurable!
