About this Holiday House

The Beach Retreat is a well appointed, fully insulated 2 bedroom bach with log burner fire. Perfect summer accommodation with quick access to the beach through 2 pedestrian walkways and in winter the fire quickly heats the whole house for cosy, comfortable stays. Affordable couple or family accommodation with modern and clean facilities. Watch SKY ( movies), unwind with a book and if you have children, know they are entertained with a huge selection of games, toys, books and videos. The house is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de- sac just a couple of streets back from the beach. It's the perfect location if you crave peace and quiet and a safe area for kids to ride their bikes. 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 north facing outdoor dining area under the sunshade and listen to the rolling surf. Fire up the barbie, sit back and relax! The west facing deck catches all of the afternoon and evening sun. Everyone needs a break from their busy lives so we are pleased to be able to share our 'home away from home' with others.

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
