About the property

Bach or holiday home, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 9)

Our family holiday home is a unique architect designed "bure" style bach with comfortable new furniture and interesting artworks in the house and garden. We recommend the house for mature couples and groups, and families with older children. The house may not be suitable for younger children.

Visitors can enjoy the newly installed kitchen with views to the mountain tops and the beach. Quality linen, towels and cleaning service (payment required) - all you need do is arrive and enjoy.

Walk across the front lawn to the beach; go swimming, take a stroll along the unspoiled coastline, or relax and enjoy the beachfront views from the spacious open plan kitchen/dining/ living area and decks. Then go to sleep with the sound of the waves.

Te Horo Beach is an undiscovered gem, less than 1 hour from central Wellington or Palmerston North and 10 minutes north of Waikanae. (train access) Easy access to bush walks, Otaki's shopping villages, restaurants, cafes.

Cosy in winter with a woodburner stove. In summer, enjoy the tree clad landscaped garden with sheltered outdoor dining and living area with outdoor fire and BBQ.

Plenty of activities: table tennis table and pool table in the garage. A petanque court (French style outdoor bowls) provides for those with a competitive spirit! Books and magazines, DVDs and CDs to enjoy with a large curved screen TV. Wi Fi with Lightbox. The beach provides a sandy playground and enough waves for kids of all ages to enjoy; beach toys are available and 2 kayaks for experienced kayakers.

About denich16

We live and work in central Wellington and escape to the Beach Retreat with friends and family whenever time permits! One of us is Kiwi born and the other originates from Hampshire, England. Our young adult daughter still enjoys the beach experience when she can be lured away from city life.

denich16 purchased this house in 2007

Why denich16 chose Te Horo Beach

We love the house and area; we discovered the unique beachside settlement by visiting friends there. It's less than an hour from Wellington, suiting us for travelling to and fro; but has a beachside village atmosphere, which leaves suburbia behind. We immediately loved the house when we saw it - unique architecture with its soaring ceiling and wide views to the sea. We enjoy summer, but equally curling up in front of the fire on a winters day is great too.

What makes this house unique

Just arrive and enjoy - summer or winter

This batch is a luxury house and is fabulous and extremely comfortable.

It is right on the beachfront and the view is great from the upstairs living areas. The gardens are lovely and are full of tui.

It is very well equipped, with everything we needed and more. Linen was good and the kitchen had everything.

There are supermarkets at Otaki and Waikanae about 10 minutes north or south.

Fabulous place to stay and thoroughly recommenced.

Wonderful house with a brilliant location.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house with a brilliant location. I stayed there with my extended family and we had lots of room. Right on the beach, so perfect for lots of walks over the day. The house is also setup really well, so we were able to just settle in and enjoy our holiday. Would definitely stay again.
