About this Holiday House

Our 'GRAY BACH' is perfect place for couples to get away from the rat race and unwind. Constant awesome wave action and some of the most magic sunsets can be yours if you are staying in our architecturally designed home. While lying in bed wake up and watch the day unfold. The sea, waves, the sky, birds, boats and the list goes on. Nature at work. It is situated in the most southern subdivision in the North Island on the rugged, geologically and historically significant Southern Wairarapa coastline. Elevated site with extensive coastal views - right to the South Island's Kaikoura mountains. (Weather permitting) Spacious with outdoor living area. Ngawi fishing village, 9 hole golf course, seal colony, lighthouse nearby. Great diving, surfing, fishing, walking (Haurangi Forest Park/Putangarua Pinnacles) and mountain biking area. Two hours south of Masterton and approx. two and a half hours from Wellington. No open fires to be lit especially in in summer. Note - fire restriction may apply

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

The Four main attractions very close by are the Lighthouse with it's massive flight of steps. Kupes Sail - with it's historical Maori Legends. The Seal Colony - a natural environment right beside the road on the way to the Lighthouse inhabited all year round and Ngawi Village with its 9 hole golf course and array of old bulldozers used to haul in the fishing boats. Behind our coastal home is the Haurangi Forest Park - walking access via the Mangatoetoe stream. (The bridge just prior to getting to our house.) A 20 min drive back towards Lake Ferry are the Putangirua Pinnacles - created by many hundreds of years of erosion. More recently a site used briefly in the making of the 'Lord of the Rings' movies. A perfect place for anyone who is 'outdoorsy' and likes surfing, diving, mountain biking etc or equally satisfying for those who simply want to 'blob out' in front of the fire with a good book having already checked out the wonderful views.

Always fantastic, already rebooked. Thanks Anne

If you wish to seriously unplug and relax, this is the place. And if you're active and in need of adventure, that's available, too. The property is superb: amazing design, top quality fittings and relaxed furnishings. And then there's the view. Someone wrote in the visitors book, "I could look out these windows all day." Exactly. Our five nights went by in a heartbeat. Hope to snag 10 nights next time! Thank you, Ann and Noel, for the pleasure of borrowing your home.
