Karoola is a 3 bedroom Waimarama bach with a games room, plus 2 cabins. This classic kiwi bach offers a retro beach escape, with a sunny and spacious section, plus views to the beach!

Positioned just moments from the beach, this 2 storey Waimarama bach includes low key open plan living upstairs, with plenty of room for your group to relax. Chill out indoors with a view to the sea, or unwind on the deck and soak up the cruisy beach atmosphere! A games room in the garage will keep the crew happy during indoor days, or enjoy lazy holiday BBQ's on the patio while the kids play in the yard...

Upstairs at this Waimarama accommodation, bedroom 1 has a double bed, while bedroom 2 has a queen bed. Downstairs, bedroom 3 has a double bed plus a single bunk set. The games room includes a single bunk set when required, and 2 separate cabins, cabin 1 has a double bed while cabin 2 is fitted with a double bed and a set of single bunks, providing additional sleeping for larger groups.

This is the perfect option for a laid back, casual beach getaway for up to 10 guests - the spacious section is ideal for family games in the sun, plus you are just a hop, skip, and a jump from the beach for days in the sand and surf. For day trips, head up to Ocean Beach a 20 minute drive away, or visit Napier a 40 minute drive away.

Kick back, relax, and enjoy a traditional kiwi bach stay at Karoola!

A great family-friendly bach with an epic view of the beach and very close proximity to the beach. We will be back!

Love staying at this place - the location is amazing, and the lazyboys are just the best. Ample room for family to stay - and the outside rooms are really handy. Just a little more omph in the shower pressure would be fantastic - otherwise it is very well appointed and user friendly. Appreciate being able to take pets too.

Love staying at this property, especially with the 2 outside rooms, great for couples, teenagers, granny and young kids. well fenced, great for dog and brilliant for badminton. Lovely being able to see the sea from inside and being so close to the beach. Outside tap to rinse off the beach. Has enough dishes, cups, serving bowls, oven dishes to make life easy. And also 3 fridges. Really great place for families, clean and relaxing, Have recommended to a number of friends especially those with families.
