On a quiet lane just 500m from the Waiohiki golf course and 1km from the Tutaekuri River, sits this fabulous two-bedroom holiday home with Wifi, perfectly kitted out for a relaxing getaway to the country. Welcome to Whare Awa!

Once a three-car garage, Whare Awa has been lovingly converted into a cosy, modern holiday home designed with eclectic styling and your comfort in mind. Presenting as a modest abode from the outside, it’s a warm and inviting entry and open-plan living that welcomes you when you walk in the door.

Light and bright with pops of vibrant colour, you’ll feel completely at home here at Whare Awa. Put your feet up with a glass of wine, a good book, stay connected with two TV's that have Freeview and Chromecast. Cook up a storm in your fully equipped kitchen. Al-fresco dining can be enjoyed in the tranquil outdoor seating area and a barbeque is available for guest use on request

Two bedrooms here at Whare Awa sleep up to five guests. The generous master offers a king-size bed and futon, while the second bedroom is fitted with a queen. An ensuite bathroom off the master bedroom completes the set up for your stay. There are electric blankets on all the beds to keep you nice and cosy on colder nights.

Ideal for a couple or a small family, Whare Awa is a great base if you like being close to the city, but also cherish a little slice of serenity. You’ll be just 6km from Taradale where you’ll find a range of shops, eateries, and conveniences, and it’s just 9km from Napier with its gorgeous waterfront boardwalk and Art Deco flair.

If you’ve brought your clubs, the Waiohiki golf course is just 500m down the road, and if you fancy getting out on the water, there’s plenty of space to park the boat. You’re just 1km from the Tutaekuri River for a dip on a hot summer’s day, or why not make a day of it and visit the sandy shores of Haumoana Beach, just 18km away.

A cosy Hawke’s Bay escape awaits, here at Whare Awa!

Such a lovely stay. Fresh bread and warm beds waiting for us even though we arrived late. The bach is well-stocked and full of personality. Great location for the area jf you have a car and planning to make the most of the Hawke’s Bay.

The home was amazing, exceeded our expectations. We will definitely stay here again when in Hawkes Bay.

Stayed February 2022

Whare Awa was the perfect place for our holiday - it was situated backing onto an orchard that backed onto the river trail. Quiet and peaceful. The house was super cute and full of everything you could ask for and more, including fresh made bread and freshly picked apples and lemons. Even better it was within walking distance of the wineries of Church Road and Mission! Who could ask for more...

Stayed April 2021
