Description

Waverley Beach is a piece of ruggered, untouched New Zealand Coastline. Its black iron sand is natural to the area. It is a place where many locals have come to holiday for years with families and friends. It is tranquil, natural, and a great place to really get away from it all.

Paua Cottage has become our families holiday home and we would like to share it with you. Whether you are a couple looking for a place to hide, or a family looking for surf and a no fuss holiday, Waverley Beach is a place to come and relax and forget about the day.

The Coast is made up of two beaches. Cave Beach is sheltered in a cove and ideal for swimming or surf casting. When the tide is out you can follow the coast and explore the caves which have tunnelled their way into the cliffs. Long Beach is the main beach directly across the road from the cottage via the walkway. Their is boat access to the beach, and their is plenty of room to launch your Contiki. Also safe for swimming, boogie boarding, or walking your dog.

Just a 30 minute drive from Wanganui or 90 minutes from Palmerston North or New Plymouth, Waverley Beach is 9km from the main road on SH3. The community is made up of 40 baches, many still original. There is an excellent well stocked 4 Square in the town centre, but it pays to take your bread and milk with you.

Paua Cottage will comfortably sleep up to 8. The main cottage consists of two bedrooms, and the sleepout at the rear of the garage provides another room. The property is fully fenced so we are happy if you wish to bring your dog but we ask that pets do remain outside. The kitchen opens out to a large deck for bbq's or breakfast in the sun.

Paua Cottage simply offers a comfortable, cosy, holiday by the sea. Enjoy!

Special conditions: Smoking is only permitted outside. Pets are welcome, but outside only. Minimum stay 2 nights

  • What a gem

    What a gem. Beautiful cottage, beachy decor, very clean and well stocked, sheltered with all-day sun. Dogs loved the fully-fenced back section.

    We were looking forward to our w eked in Waverley Beach, however next door partying, swearing loudly, yahooing, hooning with passive smoking outcome in the kids room till 4am and starting again next day at 9am meant we had no option but to bail. Come to Waverley beach if you are a party animal but would not recommend for families. In 15 years of bookabaching our worst experience to date. Paua Bach is lovely but the neighbourhood isn't in our experience.

    Owner/manager responds:

    It was extremely unfortunate for the family renting our bach to have such an unmemorable stay at Waverley Beach. It is really quite a lovely spot for families as you will see from previous comments. There was a rare Super Rugby pre-season game in Waverley which bought the younger/single party goers out to the beach to stay. Not ideal for a family but something we certainly couldn't predict or control. Most bach's in the neighborhood belong to families, many with small children.

    We had a super holiday at Paua Cottage, and would love to go back again. The cottage was well equipped and the location was ideal. With 3 small children, a fully fenced property was fab!
