  • Charming, whimsical and magical are some of the words this cozy cottage...

    Charming, whimsical and magical are some of the words this cozy cottage brings to mind. We recently stayed for a sunny weekend in Waimarama, two adults and two kids, and the house was absolutely perfect for our needs. First and foremost, the structural and decorative touches make this place a real standout. As you'll see in the photos, the house a warm, fun feel to it, and my kids never tired of exploring and playing in both the house and the attached children's playhouse. The interior is mostly warm wood, with a super cool spiral staircase as the centerpiece. The kitchen is tight but extremely workable, as well as well equipped, and we had everything we needed to prepare full meals. Even though it is a little on the cozy side, there was plenty of space overall for us to relax over a nice dinner, with movies books and games afterward. The house is tucked away in its own little space within the owners' property. The owners, it shouldn't go without saying, are a lovely couple with two

  • The Chalet is truly a magical place

    The Chalet is truly a magical place. Every nook and corner of the garden and the house provides surprise and color. Walking through the gate was like walking into an enchanted land of birdsong and blossoms and butterflies. It was quiet and restful while also being very accessible to the beach. Marina and George were wonderful hosts and we loved the tour of the property and the introduction to all the animals. We highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a unique retreat from the rest of the world.

    Our family spent 5 days here, its about a 10 minute walk to the beach, down a long driveway on a shared section, but you would never know, it's very private. The gardens are amazing, the cottage is colorful and quirky with stained glass windows and a spiral staircase, and there was so many thoughtful things for our kids from board games and books to boogie boards to take to the beach, popcorn and a popcorn machine and even a playhouse. The hosts were very friendly, we would not hesitate to stay here again.

    A welcome of music, sunshine and flowers that bought a smile to my heart. Perfect hosts, accomodating our children and dog without fuss. An enclosed, safe, quiet space that the kids could live their stories in, while we parents relax a bit more than usual. And as for the flowers... Wow. Thank you for something so different, the stuff of memory!

  • We absolutely loved our stay at Waimarama Beach Chalet

    We absolutely loved our stay at Waimarama Beach Chalet. Marina and George and their children are a lovely family and perfect hosts. There is so much to explore and our 19 month old son loved to play outside and in the little playhouse. There are so many lovely touches and nothing was forgotten about. Thank you also for the delicious fresh produce from your garden. We were sad to leave but we will be back in the future:-) Thank you for everything. David, Angela and Edgar from Wellington
