Sitting right behind the dunes of Waitarere Beach, Wicks Whanau is a delightful beachfront bach!

Classic, coastal and cosy, you can't go wrong with this three-bedroom Waitarere Beach holiday house with WiFi. It offers a sunny lounge, dining and kitchen space that opens out through a big ranch slider onto the view of the dunes. Find your favourite spot to take in the scenery, or fire up the BBQ and dine al fresco!

Decorated with plenty of colours and an eye for comfort, Wicks Whanau creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere any time of year. Unwind indoors for toasty winter stays, with a heat pump and a wood-burning fireplace to keep warm!

When it's time to cook up some fabulous family-favourite holiday meals, not only is the BBQ ideal for a summer grill-up, but the new fully equipped kitchen is sure to come in handy. The dishwasher is sure to save on clean up time, and a Nespresso machine takes care of the all-important coffee fix.

Positioned alongside the beach, this is an ideal spot for coming and going from the seaside any time of day. From Wicks Whanau, you can also enjoy local hiking and cycling for some adventure. For supplies, the local grocery shop is a flat eight-minute walk away, or if you don't feel like cooking, leave the car at home and head along to Ollies Bar and Eatery within a five-minute stroll.

Your beachfront escape awaits at Wicks Whanau!

Stayed October 2021

Thank you for a great stay in a rare location. Right on the dunes with private beach access! We loved the family bach feel and the rooms were extremely comfortable. Good size outdoor area. Nice retreat, yet central to the main Waitarere hub. Highly recommended.
