About this Holiday House

Te Wai Tahi (the one in unison with the water)at the waterfront in the heart of the Mapua village, yet far enough away to have your own peace and tranquility at the waters edge. At high tide the water comes right up to the deck, at low tide you can watch the birds from the comfort of the couches in the lounge. Binoculars are provided. Depending on the season you can observe white or grey herons, kingfishers, spoonbills or banded rail. Oh and of course our own families of of pied stilts, oystercatchers and gulls. Ideal for kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, walking or simply reading a book. If you bring your own bikes you can lock them up safely in the shed. Two kayaks and life jackets are provided. The Mapua wharf, shops and restaurants are all within easy walking distance.

Response from Owner
Thank you Carol, you're always welcome to stay again.
Stayed January 2016. Great place with lots of space both inside and out. Location is excellent with swimming,kayaking right off the deck when the tide is in. Mapua wharf with lots of shops, galleries and restaurants just down the road, or you can walk around the foreshore. Wonderful place to relax even when the weather turns bad. Just wish it was closer to home so we could go back sooner.
