Max Guests

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, or petanque (a glass of wine in hand). Table tennis is temporarily out of commission. 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.

Cleaning fee applies in addition to nightly charge Bedroom set up: queen bed in Bedroom 1, king singles (2) in bedroom 2, queen plus single in bedroom 3, and queen bed in sleepout.

2nd time here. Gorgeous house and location. Play Petanque in the sun, cool down at the beach, and hide from the midday sun inside on one of the many spots with a view.
Response from Owner
So pleased you enjoyed it!
Theresa Reddish
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!
