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 is also ideal for a couple looking for a quiet romantic retreat. The two dining tables with inside/outside options make it ideal for a small business retreat or function. 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.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely beach house. The location, features and layout was perfect for our needs, and this house was fully equipped with all the essentials. Booking & communication with the owners was excellent with timely & comprehensive instructions for key & access details etc. We will definitely recommend this beach house to others & would definitely come to stay again. Many thanks
Response from Owner
Great to see more locals taking a domestic break and nice to see the house being enjoyed in winter.
We had a lovely mid winter stay at Esther's Cottage. The house was nice and warm with the fire going and the location was perfect for heading down to the beach.
Response from Owner
Thank you! It's so nice having families enjoy the spot as a winter break.

This place was great! Right on the beach front with over view of the estuary, this place is picturesque. Had plenty of grass for the little ones to play on too when they couldn't go to the beach. Short easy stroll to the shop, the reserve and to the patrolled flagged swim area. The house itself suited us well with plenty of space for the different needs. Kids in the bunk room with their parents in the downstairs rooms while the kid free adults were upstairs with a large open plan living area. With the ease of booking and the great communications between ourselves and the owners we look forward to returning again in the next year, would highly recommend. Thank you Rob and Jane
Response from Owner
wow, thank you so much for the feedback. It sounds like the kids will have some wonderful summer memories and it's great to hear about other family and friend groups enjoying it as much as we do. Look forward to seeing you back in future
