About this Holiday House

Enjoy the beach views from the spacious open plan living areas in our uniquely designed "bure" style bach. Bask in the sun on the front deck, or stroll across the front lawn to unspoiled Te Horo Beach. Great swimming in summer, beach walks all seasons. In summer, enjoy al fresco meals with friends under the pergola in the pretty coastal garden. In winter, relax by the wood fire with a good book, board games, watch your favourite DVDs on the large curved screen TV. or just curl up on the window seat and watch the waves roll in. Whatever the season, express your competitive spirit with pool, table tennis or petanque (a glass of wine in hand). Inspired by Ruth Pretty's nearby cooking school, you can cook up a storm on the BBQ or in the well equipped kitchen. Or enjoy local cafes and restaurants. At risk to the waistline, it's a 15 minute stroll to Kirsty's bus-stop cafe in Sims Rd. Stylishly furnished: go to sleep to the sound of the waves: beds are set up with quality linen, towels, and all you need do arrive and enjoy. Bedroom 4 (sleepout attached to the garage) is now our Garden Room - a peaceful spot, with its own TV/DVD player. Heaters and electric blankets keep the bedrooms warm Only an hour from Wellington on the expressway, or 10 minutes from Waikanae Rail Station, and ten minutes from Otaki's shopping village. A great venue for a weekend away from the city, or an extended family reunion. Early check in/ late check out is often available. Mature renters welcome; the house may be less suitable for pre schoolers. The house is not available for parties or gatherings of guests beyond those in residence.

A huge thank you to Denise for the amazing hospitality provided at The Beach Retreat. The location is absolutely stunning and we were lucky enough to enjoy a very warm weekend in Te Horo. The house comes fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, and the garden area is an absolute bonus. Denise could not have been more accommodating or helpful during our stay. We highly recommend this accommodation in such a beautiful little part of New Zealand. Thanks Denise!
We hired the house for our daughters wedding. Amenities were fabulous and spacious. The home was clean, warm and ideal for a family with children. Denise kept in touch and was very helpful and communication met expectations. I have no hesitation in recommending this accomodation and look forward to returning.
Response from Owner
Thanks so much Di - pleased the accommodation worked well for Mum and Dad of the bride and family, and that it gave you a good base for the wedding celebration (held at another location). Come back to enjoy a more relaxing time!
Beautiful spot,literally right on the beach. Perfectly set up for a weekend away with complimentary goodies, espresso machine and a good selection of crockery, etc. We had a group of 8. Beautiful house that looks better than photos. Helpful owners with good communication. Thank you :)
