If you are looking for a good old-fashioned kiwi bach holiday with friends and family then we think Whare Pūkeko at Hōkio Beach could be just right for you. Family-friendly, relaxed and rustic batch living with lots of room to spend quality time with friends and whānau. Not flash but comfortable and very well set up so you will feel at home straight away. There is fast Wi-Fi, and the living space works well for both small and big groups. The beds are made up for you with sheets and duvets.

The space
The open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining room opens up through french doors to a wrap-around verandah and a fully fenced front lawn. Here you can relax in the sun all day long. There are lots of outdoor games and activities that you are welcome to use and a stack of boogie boards in the shed. The living areas have the advantage of large sliding doors between the dining room and the lounge so you can play a noisy card or board game at the dining room table while others are relaxing or talking in the lounge. There is a wood burner in the lounge and firewood is supplied for winter stays. There are three bedrooms in the house and two bedrooms in the sleepout which is located just behind the house. Bookings over 11 are able to use the sleepout which has the second bathroom. We supply linen and pillows but you will need to bring your own towels and in kiwi bach tradition we ask that guests tidy and leave the house as they find it.

Where you’ll be

Hokio Beach, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand

Hōkio Beach has a wonderful remote feel. Enjoy a pleasant walk following the Hōkio Stream from the bridge down to the sea and the kids (big and little) will have a ball playing in the sand dunes. There are times when you will have the beach to yourself and you really can walk for miles. On your way, you might find a driftwood house or perhaps build your own. Kontiki fishing, surf casting and pipi gathering are also popular activities here. There is a playground 2 minutes walk just beside the bridge as you go to the beach and a local golf course just 6 minutes drive away. Switch off from your busy life and take a deep breath of fresh sea air.
