A Beach House at Piha - beachfront South Piha (the main beach)

Max Guests

About this Holiday House

Toast marshmallows and yourself in front of a roaring fire by the roaring ocean, after a dip, a surf, a wonderful bush walk, canyoning, exploring the beach, or a night out meeting the locals, with our selection of trashy novels, jigsaws and board games. Peaceful, wild, energizing and inspiring, Piha is magic in winter. Front row, at the most popular end of NZ's most popular surf beach. 20 metres to soft fine sand, fabulous outlook from the living room, master bedroom and huge deck, of the beach, ocean and dramatic coastline. Fully equipped, private, comfortable, beachy. A lovely romantic hideaway for 1 or 2, family getaway, a picturesque and photogenic setting for gatherings or weddings. (Most of the beach and surfing scenes in the TVNZ series "800 words" were shot directly in front of our house.) The best surf spot straight in front; patrolled safe swimming/boogie boarding, fishing, wild-life sanctuary, wonderful hiking with waterfalls, swimming holes and other natural wonders, all a stone's throw away; 3-4 excellent restaurant/bars (including organic), tennis, bowls, art gallery, surf hire and lessons, an easy stroll along the beach or up the road; entertain in style to the sound of the ocean with our "BBQ with a view"; or just relax and watch the world go by from the deck, or in front of the open fire while enjoying our books and games, in winter. Overflow sleeping in the living room and basement (good weather only, up to 15). 50 minutes from Auckland CBD and airport. Linen is included for longer bookings.

Perfect for big family getaways. Fire place to keep you warm on chilly evenings. Double shower room and heaps of beds to spare! You’re basically on the beach so it does get rather sandy if your not careful. Been staying here for years! Would most definitely recommend
Response from Owner
Thankyou Charlotte! It is always a delight to have you stay. :-)
This is a very relaxing and comfortable house. It is spacious and homelike. Has all the amenities we could ask for. It has great views with being right next to the beach. Made it easy to go for a short walk and come back for a breather. Vicky is easy to communicate with and we had no problems with booking and got our deposit back quickly. Would recommend this to others.
We had such an amazing time at this house; the perfect way to see in a New Year!! We spent many gorgeous summer evenings on the huge deck, listening to the waves crashing on the beach - just heaven! The house has so much character, and at the end of a cul-de-sac is very private. I'm looking forward to my next holiday so I can rent it again!!
