The Beach Retreat is a well appointed, fully insulated 2 bedroom bach with log burner fire. The perfect winter get away with the fire easily heating the whole house. Affordable couple or family accommodation with modern and clean facilities. Watch SKY (including movies) or snuggle up with a book feeling cosy and warm. The house is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de- sac just 3 streets back from the beach.

The bach has a new kitchen and modern bathroom, continuous hot water system, water filter/softener and alarmed security system. The deck can be made secure with a slide in gate to keep young children contained and safe. Relax in the outdoor dining area under the sunshade and listen to the rolling surf.

We have just spent 6 nights here and we had a lovely time. We had everything we needed and on cold wet nights we had the lovely fire to keep us warm. Thanks again
Response from Owner
Glad you had a great stay. Yes that fire is amazing. Heats the whole cosy! Hope to have you stay again.😊
Just got back from spending a day and night here and we absolutely loved it. Very tidy and nicely decorated home. Was private and not far from the beach, which the beach was beautiful, both our first time visit to Waitarere. The bed was the best I have slept in! Thank you Lisa and Mike, we'll be sure to visit again
