Takapu - Muriwai Beach Downstairs Holiday Unit

  • 4 People
  • 2 Bedrooms
  • 1 Bathrooms
  • No Smoking
  • Wifi


While away the hours taking in the truly breathtaking views at this beautifully presented Muriwai Beach holiday unit. Welcome to Takapu.

Takapu is the Māori name for the gannet, the graceful yellow-crowned sea bird that makes its seasonal home at Muriwai from August to March each year. Just as these majestic creatures have found their perfect place to rest at this rugged west coast paradise, you too will find your haven for relaxation here at this luxurious cliff top property.

Wall-to-wall sliding glass doors and large picture windows fill this holiday unit with natural light, while a neutral colour palette is brought to life with vibrant coastal-inspired artwork.

Create seamless indoor-outdoor flow from the open-plan living space out onto your sheltered patio, or set the perfect temperature indoors with the touch of a button thanks to heat pump technology.

Offering all the modern conveniences you enjoy at home, including a full laundry, well equipped kitchen, Smart TV, and WIFI to keep you connected, Takapu also features pops of indulgence. Soak in the spa pool and breathe in the fresh coastal air, or enjoy a romantic picnic or morning yoga session on your private viewing deck.

Two bedrooms each feature a queen size bed and enjoy a tranquil outlook, making Takapu an ideal base for a couples retreat or perhaps a friends weekend away. A modern bathroom, with both a shower and soaking tub, provides the conveniences for your stay.

If you can take yourself away from this paradise for even a short while, you’ll find the shores of Muriwai Beach five minutes drive away. Grab a flat white at Sand Dunz Beach Cafe and stroll along the somewhat endless stretch of black sand, or sit and watch the surfers make the waves their playground.

If you fancy something a little more active, the Muriwai Golf Club is just six minutes drive away from Takapu, and there are also a range of mountain bike and walking trails nearby.

Step into a postcard-perfect getaway, here at Takapu.

Stayed March 2021

Beautiful property, generous hosts, highly recommend. The view from the property, overlooking Muriwai beach with ocean sprawling as far as the eye can see, is immediately relaxing. The rooms are lovely, everything you need for a holiday away. The spa is just an added bonus too! And the hosts were the perfect amount of there when we needed something, and otherwise gave us the space we needed for a quiet getaway.

We found Takapu an ideal, relaxing and well-appointed facility for our Romantic Weekend. We enjoyed it immensely.
