About this Holiday House

The Waves Studio is the ultimate bush and beach escape – a large open plan 1 bedroom studio overlooking Nine Mile Beach, Charleston, surrounded by native bush offering plenty of privacy. The Waves Studio has all the comforts of home... wood-burner, heatpump, dishwasher, full laundry, microwave, fridge/freezer, BBQ, wifi included, LCD television, DVD, sound system, and endless gas hot water for the very large spa bath. There is a queen bed in the main room which can be closed off from the lounge area with the large sliding door. Adjacent to this bedroom is a dressing area with a large bathroom leading on from this. This has a large tiled shower and a two person spa bath with bi-folding windows opening to the bush. The bathroom has a tiled floor with underfloor heating & heated towel ladder. Towels and linen are provided. The large double-glazed sliders from the bedroom and the living area open on to a timber deck affording panoramic views up the beach to Cape Foulwind. Just relax on the deck watching the ever-changing seascape or experience some of the local activities listed in our compendium. The Nile River lagoon is close by for safe swimming (10 min on foot) and there are some great walks in the area. Punakaiki to the south and Westport to the north are about 25 minutes drive away. The house is fully serviced between guests and we send detailed information, instructions and key location to guests when accommodation has been booked and fully paid. (Please be aware the second bedroom and bathroom are inaccessible as they are for our personal use). Sorry we can't take bookings with children under 12 (or pets, no exceptions) Babies are fine if you have your own portacot.

The Waves Studio was a perfect base to explore all the region has to offer. The house itself had everything we needed plus some. The views were stunning and we did not want to leave. Sometimes words are not enough. One of the best holiday houses we have stayed in. Thank you!!
