Holiday Rental House
Tucked away in the best location at the most popular end of New Zealand's most popular surf beach, this house has a magic atmosphere. Ever-changing light, and panoramic views of ocean, beach, and rugged coastline. Relaxed and beachy, an idyllic romantic retreat for a single or couple, or a family or group of up to 6 (with overflow sleeping up to 16, depending on weather-see rooms details.). A picturesque and photogenic venue for events. Just a few steps onto the long beach of soft fine sand, the best surfing spot straight in front, patrolled swimming a stone's throw away (weekends in winter), and wonderful bush walks through spectacular scenery to lookouts, waterfalls, swimming holes and other natural wonders.

A picturesque and photogenic venue for events. Just a few steps onto the long beach of soft fine sand, the best surfing spot straight in front, patrolled swimming a stone's throw away (weekends in winter), and wonderful bush walks through spectacular scenery to lookouts, waterfalls, swimming holes and other natural wonders. Entertain in style on the huge deck to the sound of the ocean; or just relax and watch the world go by from the deck or beside the open fire. The house is orientated to the weather: facing the sun in winter, shelter from the gracious ancient Pohutukawa trees in summer. Sheltered from almost all winds. With a well set up kitchen (including basic condiments), outdoor furniture, 'BBQ with a view', air conditioning, and an open fireplace, fresh herbs and lemons in the garden most of the year (grounds sand, grass and mature native trees), books and games, you can arrive and enjoy. If you prefer eating out, there is excellent casual dining and takeaways (including organic) at 4 bar/restaurants an easy stroll along the beach or up the road. The Piha store has delicious home baking and gourmet takeaways (as well as essentials you may have forgotten). There is a funky art gallery with quality art to suit every budget, surf board manufacture and hire with fashions and souvenirs, a library and post office, and a native plant nursery. Surfing lessons available. There are social events throughout the year. One of the early batches built in Piha, this is our family holiday home, not a hotel: unique, quirky, unfussy, a bit rustic. :-)More

We had the good fortune of staying here, just steps from the beach! The home comes with an amazing view and the location is absolutely lovely because it is at the very end of the beach - little to no traffic and a dedicated parking...More
