The property

Fall in love with this architecturally designed holiday home with million-dollar views over one of the best beaches in the Hawkes Bay! Lightning Ridge Retreat is a stylish escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to rural serenity, where 6 guests across three rooms can unwind in style. The modern interior is simple and comfortable, leaving all attention focused on the stunning rural scenes and ocean vistas visible from floor-to-ceiling windows. Perfect year-round, Lightning Ridge Retreat has a heat pump on hand for winter, and air-con, BBQ and boat parking for relaxed summer stays. Wake up in holiday heaven in the master bedroom, enjoying ocean views as you sip your morning coffee in bed. Glass doors from all three bedrooms open onto the sunny decking and great outdoor living area facing the bay. Relax and soak in some sunshine from the deck, or head down to beautiful Waimarama Beach, ideal for walking swimming, surfing and fishing. You're just 30 minutes drive to Havelock North, past the famous Craggy Range winery - be sure to grab a bottle to bring home and enjoy as you watch the sunset! Discover your new happy place at Lightning Ridge Retreat!

Please note that one of the queen bedrooms is connected to the living room via a sliding door that may not be suitable for light sleepers.

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.
