Accommodation Type: Private Villa/Apartment
Number of rooms: 3

Waimarama is a superb long stretch of sandy beach south of Cape Kidnappers facing East to the rising sun and the Pacific Ocean. While it usually experiences large rolling surf, it is excellent for swimming, surfing, fishing and walking. It is a 25 minute drive from Havelock North through farmland on a sealed but at times winding road. The Beach House is an absolute beachfront property positioned to maximise privacy, shelter, views and sun.

Obviously the main attraction is the beach. Waimarama is several kilometers long and is popular summer and winter. It has long stretches of private uninhabited areas and is wonderful for walking, jogging, surfcasting, fishing, surfing and swimming. Please note that Waimarama is a big rolling surf beach. It can experience undercurrents and dips and children should be supervised at all times. We would strongly advise swimming between the flags which are a very short distance from The Beach House. There is a shop for very basic facilities at Waimarama and a short drive from The Beach House is Wairanga - a challenging but very beautiful 9 hole rural golf course. The spectacular new Cape Kidnappers Golf Course is just a 45 minute drive away. It was recently voted 'Best new golf course in the world'.There is also a small church and a vibrant Maori community at Waimarama.

Facilities: Three king sized bedrooms, sleeping veranda with additional bunks, bunk room,2 bathrooms inside, extra shower and loo next to bunk room, state of the art kitchen, dishwasher, laundry, Sky television, DVD,Stereo, BBQ, outdoor/indoor fires, air-conditioning/heating.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting! A relaxed evening with friends, everyone loved the house and the catering. We would love to come back again. Thanks to you all for making the whole stay so enjoyable.

We all had a fabulous time. The house itself is well designed and beautifully appointed. The interior design is faultless, and inviting. We loved the outdoor fireplace, proximity to the ocean, and the various dining areas. We will definitely come back - we loved it!
