About the property

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

Bring friends and/or family to stay in this 3 bedroom, 2 storey beach house that's well-equipped with all you need for a fantastic holiday. There's plenty of room for larger groups and it's cosy enough for smaller groups too.

Fill your days with swimming, fishing, gathering tuatua, whitebaiting when in season, and kayaking or playing cricket, swingball, volleyball, or 'pitch-n-putt' on the lawn or shooting hoops at the park (all equipment and balls supplied) - or simply explore with beach and bush walks. Alternately, relax on the deck or in the conservatory and soak up the sun and peace and quiet. In the evenings, crank up the BBQ while playing darts, and enjoy the sunset.

For the colder months, there's a wood burner in the living area with firewood supplied - and oil heaters in each of the bedrooms, and in the living area also.

Explore the fantastic Horowhenua region including the Papaitonga Scenic Reserve, Tararua Forest Park and other walking and tramping tracks, other nearby beaches, and the local golf course which is just down the road. The closest town, Levin, is less than 10 minutes away and has restaurants, pubs, cinema complex, aquatic centre, and Adventure Park - a fantastic playground for all ages. Make sure you also check out the Otaki outlet stores for a holiday bargain. There are even a few wineries in the region which are open daily.

The beach house has a fully equipped kitchen, and a washing machine. Enjoy using the kayak, fishing rods, golf clubs, balls, swingball, cricket and volleyball sets, and gazebo. For indoors there's bowls, darts, books, DVDs, cards, and board games, as well as freeview and a few SKY TV channels (or bring your own SKY card for more).

Hokio Beach is a really special place - it's like stepping back in time to when things were easy and slow-paced - and Hokio Beachfront Retreat is the perfect place to enjoy it in. We look forward to hearing from you!

Special conditions:

Pets allowed with prior approval.

Awesome place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

Awesome place to stay. Was nice and clean, well resourced and equipped with lots of games etc for the family to enjoy, had no need to turn the TV on. Lots of off street parking. Only downside was the small fridge but we noticed a new freezer was waiting to be unpacked. Will definitely go back there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you - and thrilled you enjoyed your stay! Our fridge-freezer decided to break over Christmas so we had to move the spare smaller one upstairs into the kitchen. But, we're happy to report, there's a new large fridge-freezer ready for installation in mid-late April.

Loved our few days here.

  • 5 of 5

Loved our few days here. The location is amazing! So close to the beach and a park across the road.The beach is really interesting with big sand dunes and a shallow fresh water creek that runs into the sea.. safe for small children.The bach was comfortable and clean and felt like a "home away from home".It is well equipped with comfortable beds.It felt like a real holiday.Would love to go back.
