About the property

Bach or holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

The residence is sited along the mighty Wairoa River with uninterrupted views across the Maori-farmed rolling hills that lead down to the ocean mouth. It is adjacent to a peaceful river reserve in one of Wairoa?s best locations.

It is ideal for a couple, a family, or group of friends with two bedrooms, (sleeps 4 +). This recently renovated house is an eclectic mix of new, old and recycled product. Its contrasting tastes are shaped with a leading edge approach to embrace this environmentally friendly home design. Bright and airy with loads of natural light, fully insulated with wool and a heat pump for warmth or cooling; ceiling fans in all areas push heat down in winter and cool cross circulation in summer with part energy efficient LED lighting.

While the design approach verges on minimalist, the ?Linen Bedroom? is a divergence, an inner sanctum with the ornate finishes of yesteryears heritage. Enhanced with beautiful recycled linen and lace doyley curtains, native distressed timbers and gold trimmings, all give the room a rich lustre.

The inside/outside ?Tribal (Ngati) Bedroom? with queen bed has all the trappings of a native style; canopy curtains, African stained Wenge floors and a bi-fold opening out onto a timber deck overlooking the native tree meadow.

For the extra guests a fold out divan in the living room or Camping in the Meadow.

Quality bedware and all linen supplied.

For the gourmand, a sizable commercial-style kitchen that includes all mod cons. Cook up a storm, with local natural product or order in one of our talented local chefs. A bi-fold wall opens up onto a large dining deck overlooking a Mediterranean flavoured landscape of limestone, olive trees and river views. Or try a little camp style BBQ cooking on the brazier.

The open plan spacious dining/living entertainment areas include 2 comfy couch/divans, TV, DVD, radio, games, craft, a creative retreat for the arts, or simply a place to quietly gather your thoughts.

Special conditions:

Pets allowed with prior to approval.

Smoking allowed outside only with use of provided ashtrays.

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$50.00 per stay); Linen (included);

It's a charming place, peaceful and sunny. The riverside location is superb, the pet goats are cute, and the kitchen is ideal for the keen cook. Highly recommended.

A very cosy and well-equipped holiday home.

A very cosy and well-equipped holiday home. Great location, close to both destinations we were to visit: Urewera National Park and Mahia Beach. We loved the evenings in outdoor bath or at the open fire outside enjoying starry sky of Hawke's Bay.
