Glamping at Kairakau beach in the sunny Hawkes Bay. This house is a step up from camping. Great family beach with lots of fun for everyone. This is a perfect place to escape and spend some time in the sea air. There is a logoon for younger children. Beach has great waves for boggie boarding or surfing. Rock pools for exploring. Great low tide walk to wtarefall. Tennnis courts are 300m walk. We have tennis rackets at the house that can be used and a kayak that is perfect in the lagoon.
The house is in a great location on 300m walk to the beautiful Hawkes Bay Beach, Kairakau. It is fully equipped with cutlery, plates cups, kettle, stove top. BBQ and gas bottle are available for guests to use. Also, a gazebo that can go up on the lawn for some shade from the sun. There is also a blow up lilo and 4 man tent that can be used if you let us know prior and there will be additional costs for more than 5 people.

  • The place was fantastic. So simple, so easy, so relaxing. Back to basic, good kiwi beach fun

  • Lovely little Bach in a beautiful location

    Annie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Such a wonderful place to rewind and relax! Wished we could have stayed longer!

    Sharmaine2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Affordable Bach at a glorious beach that is not over crowded with plenty of activity’s to do with the equipment provided by Brodie if it be surfing boogie boarding kayaking fishing game of cricket to a board game even seeing whales from afar passing by. The short walkway to the river made it great for being able to leave the car parked up. Brodie’s place had all the Facilities we needed and more though there was no TV we never had time for it. Would recommend anyone to come check out Brody’s place you will not be disappointed

    John2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • The thought of taking my children somewhere with no tv, cell cover or wifi was a little daunting but it was the best thing we could have done for them. The lagoon allowed hours of entertainment for them. We absolutely loved our get away and i wish we stayed longer!

    Kelsi2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place has all that you need and more. Its wonderful and quiet but you can still hear the roar of the sea!! Has wonderful space and lots of lovely lawn to run around on. Great comfy beds and a shower thats got the best water pressure ever. Wonderful big freezer and fridge. A small oven for cooking in but still does a good job for heating pies and croissants:) Barbecue for those who want to cook yummy food outside and enjoy the summer nights. We sadly didn't get to use all the goodies like boogie boards etc as the weather finally turned nice the day we left...we hope to be back soon and for longer next time!!!

    Nerida2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location and Bach to stay in. Basic but has everything you need as a base and for an excellent family holiday, great value and we had lots of fun even though the weather was damp we still had lots to do and explore. The kids were never bored and loved the rock pools and swimming. Thanks Brodie for your prompt communications and for the use of your Bach.

    An iconic waterfront Kiwi bach at Mangakuri Beach in Central Hawkes Bay awaits your visit and a chance to truly "unplug". Although small in size there are two bedrooms that sleep four people inside with room on the lawn for a tent or two. Would suit a couple or small family or anyone looking to get back to the basics and spend the day swimming, fishing and beachcombing before enjoying dinner on the deck. This is a true Kiwi bach complete with the sunrise and a pohutukawa tree out front!
  • A lovely private spot by the beach

    Barbara2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • We love Ashley’s place for it’s simplicity, lack of wifi, tel signal, shops & noise. This is a place to connect to nature and ourselves.

    Karina2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ashley’s magical little bach, positioned perfectly to capture the serene beauty of Mangakuri beach. We swam twice and day and often had the whole beach to ourselves. The outdoor shower is perfect for washing off all the sand and the outdoor picnic table with amazing views is the best spot to have meals. We will definitely visit again. Thanks Ashley!

    Joanne2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Very cosy wee retreat which was sparking clean and in the most gorgeous location. Despite the weather we cooched up and we’re able to watch the sea through the huge windows😊 Loved the Hawaiian theme in the batch and the girls loved their room! Looking forward to getting back to stay again!

    Annelisa2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We return again and again to this little cottage, and it never fails to restore and revive us with its super chill vibe and its fantastic setting overlooking an expansive coastal view. So grateful to the owners for sharing it!

    Mike And Susan2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Loved it. Highly recommend it.

    Nick2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to chill...

    Bruce2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • This bach was amazing. Photos are very accurate. My wife called the bach "adorable". Its small two bedrooms with a combined living/dining space and a separate kitchen and bathroom. The location is stunning, you can sit inside (if weather dodgy) with amazing views of the coast, watch the kids playing on the beach, etc. If you want a totally off the grid (no data/cell reception, TV) authentic NZ bach experience with lots of privacy then this is the place for you. Expect crazy awesome beach views, stunning sunrises/sunsets, very few people around and the half dozen locals we bumped into were very friendly, stargazing at night, awesome deck overlooking beach, bbq, hot outdoor shower... great surf, and on a good day, I imagine lots of places to fish, collect Paua, etc. I stayed four nights with my wife, 7 and 9-year-old daughters. We all loved it. I think our family size was perfect for the size of the bach. Ashley was the best Airbnb host I have experienced to date. Attentive and helpful but not invasive. She really does deserve the super host status. It is about an hour south of hastings along a windy country road. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and I would like to come back, reflecting now on how nice is to be able to sit in your bach watching the beach/surf. So relaxing. p.s. tip. Download google maps on the area to your phone as you will lose data connection before you get to this listing and helpful to have an offline copy when you want to plan a day trip somewhere when you are at the bach.

  • Go and enjoy time away from the hustle of day to day life, you won't regret it. A beautiful beach a shop down the road, an awesome place to stay with amazing friendly hosts. The two bedroom house clean, bright and tidy also had been renovated had everything you needed in the kitchen can't get any better then that. I forgot to say sky tv and Wifi for the kids. Will definitely be going back to stay in the future.

    Tammy2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Toby2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Ideal spot for a lovely weekend getaway. Quiet back section which is very private and also it is very close to Waimarama’s actual beach . It is in walking distance from the local shop/takeaway and the Waimarama community Hall. Andrea is very welcoming and has the B and B up to a very high standard.

    Nicky2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great value for money. Modern décor with tasteful colours. Awesome having the lap pool right at your doorstep. Clean and tidy. A super base for exploring Hawkes Bay.

    Kelvin2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea's place was clean and very comfortable. We loved the local fish and chips takeaway up the road. Fabulous pool. Exactly as described. Andrea and her husband are a very friendly couple but give you all the privacy you need. Would definitely return if we were in the area again.

    John2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • If you're on your own or a couple this place is value for money, as close to everything you need to be close to in Waimarama and just down right relaxing. Great Hosts to boot, we'll be back and hopefully staying at the pool house!

    Ian2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea and Randall are really nice and make an effort to be available if they are needed but they leave the pool area alone so it feels quite private. The pool room feels like a tropical hotel room. The sliding doors open onto the pool which has palm trees and other lush planting next to it, so the outlook is very pleasant, a little oasis. The room has a comfy king size bed with lounge chairs and a kitchenette area. Outside is a four burner bbq. The facilities are to a high standard and are very clean. There is the general store close by with takeaways and is a small grocery store. The beach is fantastic and is two minutes walk away or you have the pool just outside the door. We really enjoyed staying here and will be back.

    Tony2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great location so close to the beach and waimarama store. Modern space, comfy bed and outdoor area to enjoy. Would recommend.

  • This place is perfect for anyone that wants a quiet cozy​ place to stay in a rural setting. It is close to the beach and close enough to Havelock North to pop over for the day. A lovely little surprise was Gail's onsite beauty clinic. I recommend booking in for a facial if you have the time. We loved our stay and can't wait to get back again soon for some R and R.

    Krista2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful stay deep in the country but close to a gorgeous beach. Very well equipped kitchen. Amazing sunsets.

    Greg2019-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely place to stay, although I ended up getting a flat tyre at the wedding that I was attending too and wasn’t able to return for the night. Very spacious and lots of outdoor space to relax and unwind, would definitely come back and recommend to others.

    Connor2019-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Peaceful and well appointed .It's very hot in summer so draw the blinds early in afternoon. Just a short drive or jog to the beautiful beach. And totally 'grounding' with very limited/nil wifi

    Wendy2019-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Quite far away from any towns but really lovely place to just get away and lie in the sun. Had a lovely time :)

    Stella2018-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • A delightful place to stay, a real get away- peaceful and cozy, and a stunning beach just down the road which is not to be missed. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful with tips of local places to see and things to do.

    Hannah2018-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • Peter's place is a bit out of the way, but once you get there it is so relaxing and peaceful. Peter and his wife were so thoughtful and kind in their hospitality and made our 6 night stay enjoyable.

  • Leanne is a great host. So friendly she couldn’t do enough for us. The apartment was super clean & very stylish. It had everything in it we could ever need. I had one of the best sleeps so far on our trip at Leanne’s. The bed & bedding was so comfortable & it was so peaceful there. We both loved the hot tub (it’s massive). And did our tired muscles the world of good. The views of the river and the hills in the distance are fantastic. We couldn’t have asked for a better stay. Thanks Leanne & Paul, it was lovely to meet you both & share a couple of early evening beers with you.

    Sue2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding, comfort, location, hospitality. We wish we could have stayed at least a week. So stylish with beautiful comfortable and luxurious touches you would normally find in a 5 star spa. . . . and the enormous spa pool that you can swim in and look out on the beautiful view of Hawkes Bay hills and the magnificient Tuki Tuki river. To cap it off our hosts who were just lovely supported us in finding Gary Harlen a first class guide and a days fishing in the same river. Between the 2 of us we caught 8 magnificient trout and caught but didn't manage to land at least another dozen. You even turned on the sunshine.

    Alison2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great getaway location. Modern and thoughtful touches.

    Denis2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

    Gaylene2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Leanne is a wonderful host with a lovely home in an idyllic setting looking over the Tukituki River. A fantastic place to stay for a relaxing time. It was extremely clean with all the amenities you need, comfortable bed, huge tv and great shower. There is even a swim spa which is incredible. A great place for a couple or a group and perfect for anyone who loves to fish/flyfish for trout with direct access to the river. can’t wait to come back with friends.

    Our humble abode is built to make memories with your closest loved ones. To enjoy family meals out on the deck while you watch the kids play cricket out on the huge front lawn. This place will truly remove you from the hustle and bustle of your current life and emmerse you into a tranquil, relaxing space.
    We chose to give our guests a real holiday! hence why there in no WIFI and no TV. How did we survive 50 years ago when cell phones and gadgets were not a thing? we climed trees, we built forts, we dug holes, we got our hands dirty, we played spotlight. Take in the space for all it has to offer, get your children outside enjoying the natural elements. Get them to enjoy an old fashion game of scrabble.
    Our neighbours are friendly and please don't be alarmed if instead of seeing traffic jams out your front window, you see a tractor drive past.
  • Very good place to stay if u have a large family. Plus great value for money. Looking at booking this place again for a weekend next summer.

Excellent backyard (and front yard too, kids loved the trampoline), quick walk to the beach & park, quiet town, and amazing outdoor dining area...we used it every meal! The layout is a little quirky (one bedroom is accessed via the bathroom or alternatively, an exterior door) but it worked fine for our party of 7. Property manager was very friendly and helpful, BachCare provided great customer service. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

    BACK TO BASICS On the bank of Tuki Tuki river. Off the grid cottage.As simple as it can be. Fly fishing,kayaking or just getting away from everyday life this is a place for you. Hidden away from everyone, yet close to civilization.
    River, trees and farm animals will be your neighbours. Yet there is family friendly Tavern just 400 m down the road
  • My partner and friends enjoyed staying at Tim & Lucies place. It was a great place to relax.

    Rachel2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage in very peaceful location

    Christine2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our weekend here. Off the grid and no TV, the only noise was the sound of the river and the wind in the trees. The perfect getaway. A small walk down to the river was perfect for the hot summer afternoons. Dinner at the local tavern is essential, steak dinner was delicious and the kids loved that there was a "park" at the pub! Loved the little personal touches that we arrived to. The house was comfortable and homely, we will definitely come again!

  • This magical cottage was a pleasure to stay at. We all fell under a spell of utter enchantment exploring this lovely place. Ida in my books is a Super host. The thoughtful touches upon arrival was just heartwarming. You can see the love put into this cozy cottage. My son was able to enjoy the fun kids room and toys. It rained one of the days we were there but there was games, books, dvds, and a heater to keep us warm & entertained. The beds are so comfortable, and there’s plenty of blankets. We took beautiful photos and videos of our stay. It’s a great location to relax. Thanks again Ida for the wonderful memories made.

    Ana2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a stunning and magical stay. The hosts were incredibly welcoming and on the second day brought over a berry pie. I woke up to the sound of geese and chickens and roosters. The home is full of wonder and I felt like a child again walking in. It’s an experience I will never ever forget.

    Parehuia2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Piet2017-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very wonderful Christmas holiday in the cozy house. The house was even better than the pictures and went over all expectations. We traveled with two children (3 + 5) who loved to play house in the garden. They were never finished playing with all the toys in the house. We enjoyed very much. The beach was beautiful and only a few minutes to go. We would always come back.

    Step back in time with this restored circa 1910 transitional villa-bungalow designed by renowned architect William Rush. Guests have the option of staying in the South Wing of the homestead or Hapua Barracks or a combination. Hapua abounds with places to relax indoors and out among abundant native bird life - Hapua means "The Lagoon where Tui gather." Cool off in the swimming pool. The Wine Bar is ideal for alfresco dining. Snooze in the Sun Room. 20-30 mins to most places in Hawke's Bay.
    Hapua is set in a park like setting with a lagoon and large mature trees making for a peaceful and tranquil experience. The homestead has been refurbished and offers a number of spacious rooms to relax in. The South Wing of the homestead has two bedrooms and a large bathroom with walk in shower and bath. The barracks are self contained close to the swimming pool and wine bar.
    Hapua is set in a small valley close to Mt Kahuranaki - "The Longed For". There is minimal human noise and often the only sound is the birds singing and the frogs croaking.
  • The food, wine and nibble extras were unexpected and provided a special touch. Loved the variety of entertaining and interesting books, and the available games. Probably could have stayed for weeks and not run out of things to do!

    Sherry2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Rebecca2019-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Hapua is a stunning locale. The only things you can hear are the birds and the frogs. A beautiful property which we all loved staying at. Peter was a great host and he provided us so much bacon and sausages for breakfast that even our two year old couldn’t get through them all, despite his best attempts.

    David2019-01-20T00:00:00Z

  • Peter is a great and hospitable host and opened his home to us. We especially enjoyed the yummy breakfast. He is a great cook. And our son was blown away by the wonderful books he had. The natural setting of his place is amazing. The remote setting of his place is so relaxing and we enjoyed the birds all around the house. We felt very welcome. Thanks Peter for the nice weekend we spent staying at your house.

    Claudia2018-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning location set amongst trees and a secluded lake with great outdoor facilities. We lit a fire under the stars and enjoyed the wine bar area until we retreated to the cosy barracks for the night. Superb touches with a bottle of wine to enjoy and plenty of space to relax. We'll be back for sure!

    Rei2018-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Peter is a great host. He presents his facilities well, his attention detail is his point of difference and the little personal touches was very much appreciated. Peter upon finding out we hadn't had dinner opened his home and kitchen up to us. He also made us a yummy cooked breakfast and was very respectful around personal privacy, yet engaging when welcomed to be part of the group. We will be recommending him to everyone we know. Thanks again Peter for a great stay. Jeff and Penny

    Jeff2018-04-01T00:00:00Z

  • Our family of seven had an amazing time at the beach house, it was great to have a place right on the beach. One small touch that was great was to have a hot shower installed outside, it was great to have a warm rinse after being on the beach for a few hours. Isabel was a great host, very responsive and quick to solve any issues. The place was spotless and we had everything we could possible need, unlimited wifi and sky tv were a great addition. The location on the beach is priceless. Thanks Isabel.

  • We had the most wonderful long weekend at this bach. We loved all the space outside and the outdoor shower topped it off. Our new Waimarama favourite!

  • Great house in the centre of Waimarama, right next to the shops and only a short walk to the beach & lagoon. Miki's place is really well appointed (heaps of kitchen utensils, plates, cups, glasses etc) as well as being comfortably decorated. We really enjoyed the mornings taking in the sun at the bay windows while eating breakfast. Our two kids (2 & 4 yrs) could happily roam around the property as it is fully fenced etc.

    Designed by New Zealand's pre-eminent designer of rustically luxurious baches, Andrew Coltart, The Boathouse is a holiday destination in itself. Should you feel the need (or muster the energy) to venture out, it’s a two minute walk to Hawke’s Bay’s favourite beach.
    Previously in the Black Barn luxury accommodation stable, The Boathouse is now being offered privately. The understated luxury and comfort is for those who seek the perfect, holiday. The house, boatshed, swimming pool and spa pool, outdoor entertaining spaces create a complex that is as suited to a couple or a group of couples as it is to a family grouping of up to eighteen. For many the centrepiece is the pool and spa pool - all-day water fun for children and relief from lengthy beach duty for parents. An open plan chef's kitchen, family room and games room each open on to sunny and sheltered courtyards. At the end of the day there are three queen-sized bedrooms, two bunk rooms and two bathrooms. There is also an office/nursery adjoining the master bedroom. In addition is one of two boatsheds, with two double bunks each with a single on top and adjoining shower, WC and second laundry. The Boathouse caters for all; the entertainer, the active family, the wine buff and anyone who wants to explore the full possibilities of relaxation and escape.
  • Outstanding home, certainly the best Airbnb i’ve had the pleasure to stay at. I could not recommend the Boathouse more. Book it now and for as long as possible! Waimarama is also a wonderful seaside village, offering all you could want for a classic NZ beach holiday

  • Amazing place, perfect for family/friends gathering. Communication was fantastic and the place very well appointed. The kids had a ball in the swimming pool. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

  • Just had the most relaxing and enjoyable break at The Boathouse in Waimarama. My husband and I loved this property from the moment we walked through the gate. We were looking for a luxury experience to celebrate our wedding anniversary with a group of friends. This is undoubtedly one of the best locations in New Zealand. Everything was so easy from start to finish. Beautifully presented and extremely impressive amenities. Everything is supremely well cared for & very clean. The decor inside is amazing & outside dining areas so peaceful and private. The deck provided the perfect place for socialising and dining, or a glass of wine while the kids jumped in and out of the pool. Excellent BBQ, and finishing touches added to the luxurious feel. The accommodations was impeccable; luxurious, comfortable and so close to beach I have no hesitation in giving this amazing place a 5 star rating. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay, and would be happy to stay in this amazing property again in the near future.

  • Lovely kiwi Bach - with great amenities and space to laze and relax

    Stefan2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The house is spacious, clean, homely and familiar. It’s perfect for a large family or big group of friends. Carina is the perfect host and communicated with us like an old friend, without hesitation. The vegetable patch is like something out of a fairy tale, there’s an old disused tractor in the front lawn the kids loved and exploring Waimarama from the house is easy. Definitely have fish and chips at the local shop. We loved our time here and I would happily recommend staying at Carina’s to anyone. 💕

    Claire2020-02-11T00:00:00Z

  • We had a great stay here, it really was a home away from home!! This place has everything we needed and was close to the amazing beach, we were lucky with great weather and I would point out that the road to this settlement is very windy but that makes it more remote and untouched and perfect. We’d love to stay here again!

  • This was an absolutely blissful break for us - Jackie was welcoming & so helpful. The studio was beautiful with lots of lovely little touches that made us feel very welcome. Easy short walk to the beach & also a quick walk to the local shop. The studio includes access to a sunny lawn area which is great for chilling out. Highly recommended.
