Why Diane Margaret chose Haumoana
I fell in love with this property in 1996 for its location on the beachfront and the many buildings on it, creating an interesting space to develop into a quirky living space to house my extensive retro collection of furniture and stuff from many eras. It has a wonderful ambience, combining open plan living with privacy. The neighbourhood is friendly and the cul de sac location is quiet and inviting.
What makes this House unique
Real kiwi bach experience with the comfort of a fully equipped home. Funky hangout space/BBQ area. Groovy retro decor.

We were a group of 10 who came down to Hawkes Bay to run the marathon. Di’s place was in the perfect location close to this finish line and on the beach front. It fit our entire group comfortably. The fireplace was superb and kept us all warm and toasty post race.
Di has furnished the property with a great collection of eclectic and interesting art and knick knacks, adding to the properties character.
The house was clean, beds comfortable and everything we needed supplied.
The perfect place to catch up with friends from around the country!
Many many thanks Di. Our whole group just LOVED staying at your place. So relaxing, great areas inside and outside. Perfect set up right beside tne beach. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your patch of paradise xx
You were great guests too. Really appreciate you leaving it so clean and tidy. Great energy to have at The Rustic Retreat.
Fun in the sun
Great place, we had awesome weather, but even in bad weather it would be a great stay. The interesting art and bits and pieces dotted around, the different living spaces and the short walk to the beach made it awesome for all of us. Di was cool, and Mushka was the perfect hostess, checking in on us often (and we think she quite liked us... and not just for putting out the cat food, and the occasional scratch around the ears :) ) All in all, the 7 of us would highly recommend a stay at Rustic Retreat.
Wonderful location with a short walk to the beach, lovely sunny back deck.
