The property

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!
