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. Preference given to two-night bookings. Gated deck, but unfenced garden

    The house was perfectly set up and homely with stunning views. It's a great location at the end of the street and the beach is a stone throw away. Defiantly hope to stay again sometime soon :)

    Fantastic location, really enjoyed our stay, great place to get away to on the weekend. Low tide was amazing, got to see a seal down on the beach, very family friendly.
