  • Right on Haumoana beach known for its tranquility and views of Napier and Cape Kidnappers.
  • Accommodates large groups with lots of private nooks and crannies for relaxation.
  • Real Bach experience with the comfort of a fully equipped home. Funky hangout space/BBQ area.

Fifteen mins from Hastings, Napier and Havelock North, five mins to international standard wineries, restaurants and cafés; Cleaview Estate, Clifton Bay, Te Awanga and Elephant Hill, and a short drive to internationally acclaimed Cape Kidnappers Golf Course and the gannet colony. Very close to excellent river fishing and surf casting sites, a very safe lagoon for daily swimming, and the sea for swimming when conditions are calm. Ideal for a relaxing stay at a home away from home. Large enough to accommodate big groups but with many private nooks and crannies for relaxing and an outside shower and funky hang out space/BBQ area straight off the beach. The large studio has recently been renovated and insulated successfully maintaining the groovy retro beachy charm The Rustic Retreat is famous for.

Special conditions: Two night minimum stay, five nights over Christmas/New Year period. Discount for two week stay. One friendly resident cat to feed, who will likely cuddle up with you at night unless you close all entrances. Smoking allowed outside only. Extra outside toilet/basin.

    The property was clean, well located and comfortable. We had ample space and loved the outdoor area and accessibility to the beach. It was perfect for our family stay- thanks!
