Akitio House Rental Photos and Description

Bach or holiday home, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 12)

The house is very close to the Akitio river and only 2kms to the Akitio beach. A well fenced, spacious section would be perfect for busy young families and the Akitio Retreat caters for this brilliantly. Because the house faces north, the sun pours in all day. Off the deck is a large lawn.

If you're unlucky enough to strike bad weather, the house is easy to warm with the woodburner and there's an abundance of firewood.

Sky TV. Spark and Vodofone reception.

For those quiet times, there are plenty of games, books, a TV and stereo with a connection for an iPod. There are some DVDs and CDs but you are welcome to bring your own.

Adjacent the house is a large garage for storage of any "toys" for the beach and river.

The river is great for swimming, water skiing, kayaking (flat water), drag netting for flounder or fishing for kahawai at the river mouth.

The beach has safe swimming and is sought after by surfers. Its easy to launch a long line off the beach and fish seem easy to catch.

Should you want to launch a boat, the best place is adjacent the Akitio boat club. For a small fee you can use the Boat club tractor to launch your boat.

On a windy day the beach is long enough to have fun with land yachts.

Forgotten something? There is a small store that sells everything. It has a liquor licence and also sells takeaway food. Check it out.

NOTE: There is NO fuel sold at Akitio so fuel up in Dannevirke.

There is a sealed road all the way from Dannevirke to the coast.

From Hawkes Bay, the best way to Akitio is via Dannevirke not via Porangahau as per Google Maps. The Rural Rapid Number for the Retreat is 2503.

Keen of golf? Cape Turnagain is a 9 hole golf course at Herbertville, north of Akitio and they welcome visitors.

If you are keen on mountain biking or tramping on the Station please enquire.

Special conditions:

Mountain biking and hikes/walking on the neighbouring farm are by arrangement only.

Tractor hire for boat launch is available at the Akitio Boat Club.

Horse riding on the farm and keeping horses in a paddock on the farm is by arrangement only.

Hunting is available at a cost of $300 plus $100 for the guide. Deer (Red and Fallow) and pigs are regularly found. Enquiries welcome.

Thank you thank you thank you for letting us share your piece of paradise over the long weekend.

WE all had the best weekend and loved your place, it was everything we thought it would be.

We went sand boogie boarding, surfing, fishing and just loved the coast line.

We will be back.

Property was comfortable and very peaceful - set in a neat location at the entrance to the farm.

  • 5 of 5

Property was comfortable and very peaceful - set in a neat location at the entrance to the farm. It was great to see a bit on farm life going on around us, have access to the bush walks and amazing view from the ridge and at the same time be close to the river and sea.

The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well appointed so we could cook up a holiday feast each night.

We were a group of adults but it would also be a great place to go with kids.

The Retreat is very well appointed and has a lovely 'homely' feel, a perfect spot to relax.

  • 5 of 5

The Retreat is very well appointed and has a lovely 'homely' feel, a perfect spot to relax. Loved that there was no cell phone coverage or internet! We really enjoyed seeing some of the day to day happenings on a working farm such as seeing the young bulls being weighed and watching the sheep being unloaded at night, things that we don't often get to see living in the city and appreciated our host's thoughtfulness. We also loved the walks on the farm and the beautiful beach.Would love to return.
