Waitarere. ...The Waitarere Bowling Club is a MUST on Friday night, from 5.30. Good menu, cheap drinks, raffles and lucky draws, and friendly locals.

Next door is the cafe for great coffees and snacks. Walking and driving on the beach is always fun. Foxton.... a small town with a very special library/museum. Also working flour producing Windmill, shop and Dutch cafe. Quaint old style main street with a lot of antiques and recycled clothing stores. Levin is a small city with all normal services and shops.

  • We love this house! Only a few blocks back from the beach, wonderful sunset views, and being able to overlook the kids in the playground from the backyard made it the perfect location. The house is clean, spacious and well thought out, with THE most comfortable beds ever! (We actually took a photo of the mattress for our next purchase!) Thanks for being great hosts!

Very well appointed kitchen and great bbq, 2 mins walk to great park/play area for the kids, super closer to local shops, takeaways and bottle store. 5 mins or so straight down to the beach...

    Waitarere Beach, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand

    Cute little house with amazing large corner section. Walking distance to Beach (200 meters), 4 Square (10 meters), Bowling Club, Park and Cafes. Right in the heart of Waitarere village. Enjoy the gorgeous beach sunsets and relaxed environment.
    Our gorgeous Bach has a few quirks... *hot is cold in the shower *only use cold water in the washing machine.
    Our Bach is within meters of Waitarere’s 4Square were you can buy delicious home made bakery/meals. The beach entrance is a 100meters down the road, amazing sand dunes, surf and sunsets. Tennis courts and parks including a bowling club are all within walking distance as are the local cafes. Waitarere Forest has great bike tracks along with a children’s fairy forest playground.

Waitarere Beach is great for swimming, fishing, kayaking, and other water sports and we have two kayas to borrow at your own risk (adults must supervise children at all times and bring your own life jackets).

This is a fabulous location for your summer holiday or your winter escapes as you listen to the waves. Fresh bread, homemade pies and cakes at the bakery at the local 4 square store is a must (during busy times it is recommended to pre order the bread).

  • This house was sparkling clean and very well appointed. The kitchen was so well stocked with cooking appliances, coffee plungers, plates, glasses etc. The sheets and towels are lovely quality and the beds are super comfy. Waitarere is very flat so we biked every where so the shop, playgrounds, mountain bike tracks and beach are all within easy reach. Great place, would recommend and definitely come again.

Clean linen (towels/sheets/tea towels) can be provided if required for no additional charge. The beach is wide and sandy with drive on access allowing plenty of room for all your favorite beach activities. The beach slowly drops off into deep water so there s plenty of safe paddling space for the youngsters, and during the summer months the surf club set up a patrol. Waitarere Beach is also a popular fishing spot where Kahawai, Snapper, Groper, Gurnard, Flounder and Sole are the most common catches There are also plenty of parks and reserves to keep the kids busy Please note there is no washing machine as yet but does have a large tub to do any quick hand wash and a clothes line if needed. The upstairs bedroom has great views but does have access by stairs which are steep as shown in photos. No smoking allowed inside the house . No dogs. Must take your rubbish with you for 2 or 3 days stays, arrangements can be made rubbish removal for longer stays. No parties.
  • Would recommend this bach. Kitchen is well equipped, close to local supermarket. We had a BBQ one night which was nice. Easy to self cater. We enjoyed visiting the op shops in Levin.

Like a hidden gem nestled into the hillside, but only a short walk to the beach. Everything Lauren made it to be. Will definitely return here in the future.

We're very close to the children's playground, only 1 minute away and there's no need to cross roads. It's a quick 5 minute walk to the long, large beach and even shorter walk to the local cafe, gift shop, 4 square and fish'n'chip store. The Waitarere Forest is close by for those who want to explore the woods and the iconic 'fairy forest', and is easily accessible to mountain bikes.

    Arriving at Hokio Beach you will immediately notice the silence, with only a faint rumble of the sea in the background. The property is surrounded on two sides by grasslands and visiting horses. This house is a unique cottage that will give you the quintessential bach experience only an hour and a half out of Wellington. The beach entrance is 800 metres from the house and is a great spot for walking, running, and sunning. The house is fully equipped with everything needed for a weekend away.
    Room layout: - Downstairs there is a room off the lounge with a Queen bed. - Upstairs there are two rooms, one with a double bed and the other with a single bed with a trundle bed underneath. These two rooms are adjoined. PLEASE NOTE: There is a spiral staircase leading upstairs, which may not be suitable for young children, elderly, or differently abled people. There is no alternative access for the second level. In the shed we have two beach chairs, a basketball, sun and beach umbrellas, buckets and spades, and a skipping rope. There is a TV with a chrome cast that allows you to cast your streaming platforms directly to the TV, it also has an HDMI cable. It does not receive any free to air tv. The property runs off a water tank meaning that the water has to be boiled first before drinking, but there is also bottled water provided. The property also has limited cellphone reception, but does have WIFI so please keep this in mind. This is a recently set up house, so if you come across something that you need please let me know and I will ensure that we include that in the future.
    Hokio Beach is an up and coming beach along the Manawatu coastline. Just 11 minutes out of Levin you are close to the supermarket, cafes, and restaurants in the town. You're also close to all the excellent op shops and antique stores the town is well known for. Levin also has a cinema, an aquatic centre, and Adventure Park. There is also the Ruth Pretty Cooking School, Kitchen Shop, and The Garden Room. There is a golf course on Hokio Beach Road, as well as the Celtic winery. The Horowhenua region is full of great things to explore including the Papaitonga Scenic Reserve, Otaki Forks swimming hole, Tararua Forest Park and other walking and tramping tracks, and other nearby beaches. There is a riding stables half a hour south. https://www.stablesonthepark.co.nz/

  • Wonderful little family bach. Perfect location for a quiet getaway. Levin is close enough if needed and the beach is easily walkable. Has everything you need. Hosts communication was excellent.

    Hiria2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Hi all Desiree was great to deal with. It is a lovely, cute traditional kiwi beach bach. Very quiet and peaceful - we did not strike good weather but did see that there were people fishing on the Sunday before we left and a children's playground at the beach. A great range of books and with the heat pump would be even cosy in the winter

    Shirley2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Nice quiet place. Beach is only a few mins away. 10 min drive to town. Had an issue with the toilet but great communication from the host. Issue got sorted straight away.

    Rahina2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great, cosy place near the beach, ideal for a stay away from the city. Warm, with good facilities, well equipped kitchen and small bathroom.

    Gosia2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • We found the place very peaceful and quiet and close to the beautiful beach. The bach had everything we needed, was in a peaceful and quiet area, and was cosy and warm and homely in the depths of winter. Communications with Desiree were great, she accommodated us at the last minute when our other accomodation fell through so we really appreciated that. Thanks again!

    Waitarere Beach, New Zealand

Upstairs: one large queen bedroom (with single mattress on floor), one twin single bedroom and toilet/shower.

    Waitarere Beach, one of the best-kept secrets of the North Islands west coast is regarded as the place to go when you want to get away from it all. Within easy commuting distance from New Zealand's Capital city Wellington, and from nearby Palmerston North, Waitarere beach is an ideal spot for either a weekend getaway or as a permanent residence. The Waitarere Beach community includes a well-stocked 4 Square Store, takeaways, café and restaurant. Levin, the nearest town is 10 minutes easy drive should you need something more. The Waitarere beach is wide and sandy allowing plenty of room for all your favourite beach activities including land yachts, 4 wheel motor bikes, surfing and fishing. The beach slowly drops off into deep water so there's plenty of safe paddling space for the youngsters and during the summer months, the surf club set up patrol. Waitarere Beach is also a popular fishing spot where Kohawai, Snapper, Groper, Gurnard, Flounder and Soul are the most common catches. The large, flat beach is ideal to back your boat with a tractor or a four-wheel drive. During the Whitebait season you can find a spot to sit your net at the Manawatu or the Ohau river mouths. A well-established forest surrounds Waitarere Beach and is host to several popular annual events such as the 'Great Forest Marathon'. Orienteering, and Mountain biking also make use of the forest floor and bring in a lot of interest from outside the Horowhenua. The forest is a popular spot to walk your dog and with the many tracks cutting through to the beach, you can enjoy the forest one way and the beach on the way back! Come and discover for yourself the peace and tranquillity of this waterfront paradise that is Waitarere Beach.

    Janine2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • This beach Bach was perfect, it was clean, tidy and great value for money, we would definitely stay again. All communication was prompt, check-in exceptionally easy and Barbara was wonderful and helpful.

    Margaret2019-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Five of us stayed very comfortably here. The sleep-out with double bed was extra value along with two bathrooms. Very comfortable beds, lovely and clean, and, if you are coming to stay, don't forget the fantastic freshly baked croissants from the 4 Square on the corner! Also has great selection of wine... Loved this kiwi beach-house!

    Linda2019-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice idyllic spot. Very relaxing.

    Oliver2018-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and functional and just a short walk to the beach, the four square, and ‘middle earth’. We are keen to return!

    Shelton2018-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Th Bach was in a great location with a lovely view out to the beach. The Bach was really spacious and had great outside space. The kitchen had everything we needed. Sam and Barbara were really friendly and helpful. We would definitely book their place again.

    Anne2018-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, heaps of room outside for the dog to run around. Everything you need in a wee bach. We were worried it might smell 'doggy' seen as pets are welcome and were relieved that it didn't have that dog smell at all! Will def go back again!

    Carolyn2017-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great house for a weekend of relaxation. It had everything we needed. Great sea view and so quiet.

Amazing sunsets from the balcony and a nice private space. The beds were comfortable with plenty of space for our family of 4 (and more beds for extras if required) and was family-friendly. There was good communication with Kylie and the arrival and departure was relaxed and easy. We would recommend staying here.

  • We had a great time at Claire’s place. The communication was super easy and quick and the place looks exactly like it does on the pictures. The place is at a perfect location, metres from the beach and the fresh bread on arrival is an extra bonus! Would absolutely recommend to stay here

    Hinada2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The host were amazing and very friendly The place is maintained well and very clean And every attention to detail for every room Highly recommended to stay

    Legish2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • A stunning place to stay in Waitarere. I can't imagine anywhere else at the beach being as luxurious. Claire was helpful and friendly and made sure that our stay was perfect, from the thoughtful and delicious breakfasts, to providing Easter eggs on Easter Sunday! We would definitely use again and recommend to others.

    Kate2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Claire’s place in Waitarere Beach. They were very welcoming, and it almost felt like staying with family. The accommodation is in a private wing of the main house and completely separate, and has its own sunny private courtyard and bbq. It’s very modern and well finished throughout. We especially liked all the little touches; like the homemade bread, spreads, breakfast, fresh juices etc. We were grateful to be able to borrow the e-bikes (mountain bikes and kayaks were also available), and also scored some fresh snapper from our hosts!

    Waitarere Wonder is a gorgeous sunny beach house located directly across from beach access at Waitarere Beach. Enjoy all day sun on the huge front deck and in the sheltered backyard, and the last of the sun on the deck with a glass of wine. The house has been extensively renovated throughout and includes three bedrooms with an open plan living, dining and kitchen area. The stunning kitchen and bathroom are new and have everything you need including a dishwasher & Infinity gas hot water.
    Waitarere Wonder is walking distance to the local restaurant, café, 4 Square and gift shop. The domain, park, tennis courts and south end forest are also within walking distance. Besides enjoying the fabulous beach at Waitarere, the forest areas at the south and north ends of Waitarere are great for mountain biking, walking and running. The south end forest has a kids Fairy Forest and Middle Earth - an adventure playground.
    Great little beach community - super friendly locals. The beach is a safe beach for swimming, fishing and water sports. The forests at the north and south end of the village are great for mountain biking, walking and running.
  • The house is well kitted out with books, board games, puzzles, childrens toys, dvds etc. If you ended up being in due to bad weather etc, you'd be sweet! The house is a really safe place, we had a 3 year old and a baby and didn't need to worry too much. The easy access to the beach is brilliant and the house essentially lends itself to having a nice quiet few days away. No WiFi which was a good touch ;) The way the house is set up, you'd imagine Jodie & Pete lived there the majority of time (perhaps they do) Warmest V

    Amy2018-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • My Adult son and I stayed for a week here at this quintessential Kiwi Bach , and it was a great experience. Right from the start of booking, communication was straightforward, easy to understand and prompt. Location was easy to find, up a quiet street. The after hours lock box worked very well for us. This Bach although aged, has had a full makeover and is modern and clean. It was tastefully and comfortably decorated. We were busy out and about each day but coming back here at night was like being welcomed with a big hug. Warm homey vibes. Everything you may need was provided. Hair dryer, towels, comfy couches and beds freshly made up with white linen. A treat for the jet lagged persons we were. The shower had the best head on it ( and now I have to change my one at home! ) although you must be mindful of using rainwater, and be economical with its use. Beach access is directly over the road and follow the track over the vegetated sand hills. There is no fear of snakes as they don't have them in NZ. Just lovely sea grasses and lupins. Waitarere Beach is able to be driven on, so you can always find a spot to be by yourself, but do be aware of wet sinking sand when tide goes out . It goes out a long way. We highly recommend The Pipi Point Cafe. We had the most amazing burgers from there. My vego option came with beetroot and pineapple! We truly loved it and hope to return here for another time!

    Tania2018-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • This house is perfect for a family get-away. The proximity of the beach, forest, park and shops made it so easy to relax and unwind. Beds and furniture were comfy, and the kitchen was well-equipped. Updated and very tidy, we will be back. :) The front lawn and deck are a great area for soaking up the sun and watching the kids play on the lawn.

    Allison2018-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay, thanks Jodie and Pete. Very tidy kitchen with great appliances and a brand new bathroom with an excellent shower! We stayed in the winter, so the fire was a lovely touch, too. Definitely recommend.

    Our spacious home is set on an acre of land just off State Highway 1, halfway between Levin and Waitarere Beach. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 large lounges and 1 bathroom, and is ideal for a group of family or friends. Outside, the gardens are a work-in-progress, with a colourful mix of native trees, fruit trees and grassy areas. There is a small, securely fenced lawn leading out from the house for kids or pets to play on. The roomy kitchen/dining area is perfect for a big gathering.
    Being just off State Highway 1, we are in a great location for those wanting a stopover for the night before travelling through to Wellington or going north. Please keep in mind that our location does bring with it some traffic noise at certain times of the day. Also, please be aware that there is no Wi-Fi at our property, so you will be dependent on using mobile data (or maybe enjoy some digital free-time?). We are happy for you to bring your pets on holiday but ask that you clean up after them and keep them off beds and couches. Our property runs on rainwater collected in a tank, and we ask guests to conserve water over the drier months wherever possible.
    Our home is surrounded by farmland, with distant views to the Tararua ranges. A 10 minute drive will take you to Waitarere, where you can walk for miles on the beach. You could also visit the little town of Foxton, which has a good range of cafes, and second hand shops. If you need groceries or a takeaway fix, Levin is 5 kms away, and there are a couple of great playgrounds, bushwalks and an indoor pool if you have kids in need of entertaining.

    Levin, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand

    My place is a Lockwood house with great views over forest and lifestyle blocks.I live a few minutes from the village with 2 cafes,fish and chip shop,gift shop and (URL HIDDEN) is ten minutes drive where there are supermarkets,banks, cinema other shops swimming pool etc.There are lots of great places to walk e.g forest,beaches and lakes.Also great mountain views from nearby. I have a friendly little Dachshund and Burmese cat.I can provide transport to train or bus services to Wellington and back
    My house is warm all year round with sun streaming in and a wood burner. I have a spa bath as well as shower and separate toilet,and lots of hot water. I can do laundry for guests and cook wonderful meals ( special diets can be catered for with advance notice.) Waitarere Beach is not far from Palmerston North (Rugby Museum and other attractions) and the Kapiti Coast. It is just over an hours drive to Wellington and Wanganui.There's a good train and bus service from Waikane to Wellington as well as the new Kapiti Expressway. Hawkes Bay and Taupo are about 3 hours away. The scenery around here is lovely. You will get a real slice of New Zealand life in the provinces with most of the conveniences of a bigger city. I am English (Yorkshire lass ) but have lived here nearly 44 years and have travelled the world so know how important it is to stay in a welcoming, relaxing place where you can unwind and enjoy the surrounding areas. I have information about tourist attractions in the places mentioned above and WIFI and a computer you are welcome to use so you can google what you want to know about ! Any other information you want will be answered by email if you contact me that way.
    This is a beach settlement which is sandwiched between 2 beautiful forests and views to the Tararua Mountains. Mt.Taranaki and even Mt.Ruapehu can be seen from the beach on clear days. In winter you occasionally see snow on the local mountains which are covered in native bush. The sub-division I live in has pleasant walkways with native bush and birds, small lakes and various livestock dotted about (horses, sheep etc.) There are llama and alpaca farms near Levin and lots of fresh fruit and vegetable stalls and places you can pick your own in summer. There is even a local vineyard selling very nice wine.
  • Wonderful host at Waitarere Beach. Also,lovely views from this modern house over a beautiful rural residential area. Beautiful beach 🏖 on a sunny day.Enjoyed the breakfast & pets too.

    Trish2019-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • We very much enjoyed our stay which allowed us to have a base for our Christmas sharing with extended family at the beach while being able to escape back to the peace of a home away from home when needed.

    Richard2018-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful host and lovely touches. Made my stay feel like being right at home. Short drive or walk into the village. Great shower. Comfortable bed. Would stay again

    Bring friends or family to stay in this 3 bedroom, 2 storey classic beachfront kiwi bach that's just a few minutes walk from the water's edge. It's well-equipped with all you need for a fantastic holiday, and there's a playground over the road which also has a half basketball court - perfect for shooting hoops. There's plenty of room for larger groups and it's cosy enough for smaller groups too. Hokio Beach is a really special place - quiet and laid back, perfect for a relaxing holiday.
    Fill your days with swimming, fishing, gathering tuatua, whitebaiting when in season, and kayaking or playing table tennis, cricket, swingball, volleyball, or 'pitch-n-putt' golf on the lawn or shooting hoops at the park (all equipment and balls supplied) - or simply explore with beach and bush walks. Alternately, relax on the deck and soak up the sun and peace and quiet. In the evenings, crank up the BBQ while playing darts, and enjoy the sunset. Also available for use are a gazebo, indoor bowls, skateboards, tennis rackets, petanque, books, DVDs, cards, and board games, as well as freeview and a few SKY TV channels (or bring your own SKY card for more).
    Explore the fantastic Horowhenua region including the Papaitonga Scenic Reserve, Otaki Forks swimming hole, Tararua Forest Park and other walking and tramping tracks, other nearby beaches, and the local golf course which is just down the road. The closest town, Levin, is less than 10 minutes away and has restaurants, pubs, cinema complex, aquatic centre, and Adventure Park - a fantastic playground for all ages. Make sure you also check out the Otaki outlet stores for a holiday bargain. There are even a few wineries in the region which are open daily.
  • One of the closest houses to the beach access and a playground with basketball hoop on the front doorstep was perfect for our family long weekend away. The open fire was very much appreciated and the kids really enjoyed playing table tennis and the games that were available. Recommend as a good sized traditional bach with all the trappings to entertain if you want to stay in, close to the beach if the weather is good, and close to Levin if you need supplies or eat at one of the great local Restaurants like Roadhouse Grill. Cheers Helen!

    Geoff2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing house in a beautiful location! The house had everything we needed, with loads of space for our group and being just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach was really nice. Really easy to pop up from Wellington and spend a weekend away from the city. Would love to come back sometime in the future!

    Alexander2019-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Had such a fantastic weekend at Helen and Chris’ place with my family for my Dad’s birthday! The weather turned out to not be so great but we managed to still have a great time thanks to the well stocked board game cupboard! On the fine patches we played basketball, rugby and had a lovely BBQ. The place was really great. Real classic Kiwi bach! Lots of room for everyone and Helen’s communication was great! Chris popped around in the morning on the last day to kindly let us know we could have a late check out, which we really appreciated as the sun had come out and we got a chance to head to the beach! Would definitely recommend and look forward to hopefully staying again in the future!

    Kelsey2018-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had myself and my husband and my sister and brother in law with us. Location was great we visited our relatives in levin with ease but still had a nice spot to come back too in the evening. The Sunset walks on the beach a highlight. Great little spot we can’t wait come back.

    Alexandra2018-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • I couldn't be more pleased or grateful to Helen for sharing her beautiful bach with us for the weekend. The weather was awful, Dad is getting Alzheimers and gets anxious away from the home. So it was wonderful to go out into the cold and wet, do what we needed to, then come back to this spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming oasis. A roaring fire, all the amenities and space to keep the oldies, the adults and the teens occupied, fed and happy. We can't wait to come back when the weather is better. Helen's responses were prompt and friendly, I have no suggestions to improve because it was awesome.

  • This place is located so close to the beach it was great. The house has everything you need for a weekend away, games, wood fire, kitchen equipment etc. Helen was so lovely to deal with too :)

  • Great place. Certainly a classic kiwi batch nestled in Hokio. For those travelling from aboard, it is a great place and a bit of a time warp - which is why we love it. Had a great stay at Helen and Chris' who were very accomodating and communicative. Will definitely be staying again!

    Charming Bach in a quiet cul de sac. Big enough for the whole family (or 3) comfortably sleeping 10 people. The Bach is well equipped with something for everyone. A collection of children’s and adults bikes to check out the woods or ride to the 4 square for ice cream, cricket sets, volleyball, darts, surf boards, puzzles, cards, board games, books and much more. The beach, cafe, 4 square and playground are all within 500meters but the yard is big enough to play games all day and not need to leave. We’re sure you’ll love your stay in waitarere.
    5 bedrooms, room 1 has Queen bed, Room 2 single bunk beds, room 3 has 2 single beds, room 4 has 1 Queen bed, room 5 has 1 fold out couch.
    Quiet street close to the beach, playground and shops
  • This is a great spot for large or small groups, with plenty of options for places to sleep. The house is comfortable, spacious, and very clean, with a lovely bit of grass and a picnic table in the back. The location is great, just a short walk to the Four Square/cafe, and close to public access to the beach as well. The host was very responsive and helpful, 5/5 would stay there again!

  • A homely beach bach, well equipped and well fenced. Great for a family group. 10 minute stroll to either the beach, the Cafe or the Four Square.
