About this Holiday House

Enjoy Waimarama in this large, self-contained beach holiday home with breathtaking views along Waimarama surf beach to Cape Kidnappers. Built new in 2011, with 5 bedrooms sleeping 10 on two levels, the home features a large open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen area opening onto a deck overlooking a reserve and the beach. It has been designed to cope with the bustle of family groups and yet it also suits a couple or two looking for a quiet retreat. The two dining tables with inside/outside options make it ideal for a small business retreat. Please note this in our family holiday house, not a commercial enterprise and we wish to treat our neighbours with respect so this is NOT A PARTY HOUSE. The two upstairs bedrooms each open onto a balcony and share a large bathroom with shower, bath and toilet. One of these rooms has twin king singles combining to a super-king double bed. The other upstairs room is a queen. The ground level has three inside bedrooms plus an enclosed veranda room. One has twin singles combining to a King double. The next is a queen double. The large bunk-room has three double bunks plus a roll-away single (i.e. sleeps six singles). The veranda room can be enclosed or open to the sounds of the sea and has a standard double bed. It has a more rustic camping feel. The main ground level bathroom has an accessible shower, bath and toilet.

Loved the vista from the open plan living room. Plenty of room for guests to relax indoors and outdoors. Very pleased with the ample resources for cooking and dining. Thanks MacIntyre's.

What a fantastic property. We used this for a group of 9 ladies for a Mum’s getaway but would be great for families as well. It was perfect in every way. Practically beachfront, with easy access to the beach, views from upstairs and the deck. Close to the shops if you need anything. The house has everything you need. So well thought out and everything is labelled with easy to follow instructions. What a fabulous holiday home. Thanks for having us. We’ll be back. Jen & co
Response from Owner
Thanks Jen for the lovely feedback. C19 has seen more kiwi friend groups and families escaping to Waimarama outside the usual peak summer holiday which is awesome to see. Glad you had a nice time and hope to see you back.
Wow! Is this the best rental place ever?! It is not a cottage, but a spacious seaside house with a wonderful open plan kitchen, dinning and living area. Awesome fire too! Then there are sliding doors opening onto the shaded deck with views over the neat wee reserve right up to Cape Kidnappers! Perfect. It is not beachside, but access is across the reserve, which is perfect as you are tucked away and don’t get disturbed by all the beach traffic. Thanks for a wonderful holiday. I do hope that we can return soon
Response from Owner
Thanks for the lovely write-up and for looking after our family beach house. Yes, Cottage is probably not the best description but we stuck with it because that's what our Gran called the original bach she bought back in the 1920s when there were only a handful at Waimarama. It's nice when people's expectations are exceeded rather than overdoing the sales pitch. Hope you can make it back again one day.
