Description

You can now stay in the global award winning First Light House on a fabulous site overlooking the sweep of Waimarama Beach in Hawke’s Bay. This much awarded eco home, designed and built by University of Victoria architectural students, went on display in Wellington, then it was shipped to Washington to compete in an international competition where it won first place in engineering, second for architecture and third place overall . Now this sassy solar home of the future has been permanently sited on Lightning Ridge overlooking the white sands of Waimarama Beach , a twenty minute scenic drive from Havelock North in Hawke’s Bay.

The house has amazing indoor – outdoor flow with more than 100 metres of decks overlooking the beautiful surf beach . With sweeping views down to Cape Kidnappers and out to sea to Bare Island, the location is special, perfect for such a special house.

If you are looking for a holiday or short break in a green, clean lovely bach, The First Light House is ready to take bookings.

  • Unique eco house, very thoughtful space saving features

    Unique eco house, very thoughtful space saving features. Warm, airtight, no noise, has a calming effect. Great sea views. Feels like you are in a house built with natural materials ( which you are) strong and rich in wood colours. excellent indoor outdoor flow connecting to landscape and sea views Large windows providing vignette views. All the conveniences of modern living provided in a passive solar house. We thoroughly enjoyed the ambience.

    Very interesting little pad. Great spot. Felt the batch didn't really take advantage of the amazing view though.
