The ultimate tiny house - Noddy House - small and special - visitors love it! A narrow strip of wilderness exists between you and the ocean. Stroll across the rustic boardwalk to the beach.

And it's located on the reknown coastal cycle trail

It's a great hideaway for a couple, a family, or group of friends. Spend the day with a book on the front deck, have your breakfast watching the sunrise or supper watching the moonrise, wake up with a morning swim.

There's one double bed downstairs and a storage shelf (accessible by vertical ladder) which has small double and single mattresses on the floor. The kitchen is small but everything you need for a simple meal. There is a great local take-away shop with fresh fish and a range of other food, as well as a four square supermarket and Gannets Bar, all within walking distance, and a couple of local vineyards with quality restaurants.

Using the amazing network of Hawkes Bay Cycle trails, you can spend your days exploring the region on your own bikes or hire them when you arrive. Google 'HB Cycle trails' for maps and 'kidnappers escape' for local bike hire.

Haumoana is a great base from which to explore art deco city of Napier, the arts and wine trails of Hawkes Bay Wine Country, the city of Hastings and village of Havelock North (all just 12 km distance from Haumoana).

Or just kick back and enjoy the eclectic nature of the coastal communities of Haumoana, Te Awanga and Clifton (the Cape Coast) - cafes, artists, gannet tours (Oct-April), British car museum, restaurants, international award winning vineyards as well as the renowned Cape Kidnappers golf course (one of the top 10 in the world), farmyard zoo of Haumoana and Te Awanga (check local attractions out at, beach walks, river and sea swimming, surfing, even throw in a line and maybe catch a kahawai!

PS I have a dog (Zeph) and cat (Heypuss) who live on the property.

  • Noddy house is a really clever "Small Space"

    Noddy house is a really clever "Small Space". Our Kids really loved the loft and we found everything we needed literally to hand. Haumoana is central to everything (Napier, Hastings, Havelock, Cape Kidnapper's) and we loved the sound of the waves as we fell asleep and the short stroll to the beach.

    Everything about the Noddy house was lovely - clean, tidy, quirky and quaint, well set up for a short holiday. It was pretty small though and we’d probably not stay more than a few days.
