We stayed in the Beach House for a week and had the most amazing time! This trip was actually my second stay at Vaiakura Holiday homes and I’m sure there’ll be a third stay.
The hosts, Raewyn and Rhett, were lovely and very easy to talk to in person and communicate with through email. They made booking and staying as easy as possible.
The Beach House was perfect for our party of 7 and was even able to accomodate our toddler with his own portacot and high chair. Everyone had ample space and one of the bathrooms has had a nice makeover since our last stay.
We were able to use majority of the provided facilities like the kayaks, snorkelling gear and aqua shoes, but didn’t get a chance to use the BBQ this time around, but it was there if we wanted to.
There was a parking spot for our rental car and bike parking for the scooters.
Overall, we had a wonderful time, the accomodation was reasonably priced and we’ll be back.
Meitaki maata Raewyn and Rhett!
What a Paradise!
What a paradise! Thanks Raewyn and Rhett for an absolutely amazing stay at your fantastic Home right on the beach. 6 of us stayed in the Beach front house.
So well equipped with everything you need.
Raewyn and Rhett are so lovely and helpful which made us feel at home as soon as we arrived.
Was an extra bonus having 3 dogs and 4 cats that loved making our stay even more special.
Fab walks along the beach with dogs Yuppy even liked riding on the canoe with you.
Beautiful sunsets and breathtaking views . Saw whales out front! Shop across the road, Beluga Cafe in close walking distance as well as the shipwreck for great meals , cocktails and friendly vibe.
Can’t wait to come back. Many thanks , highly recommend.
Thanks so much for Raewyn, Rhett & your Furry friends.
Perfect Beach Holiday Spot
Perfect beach holiday spot. Right on the beach. Great amenities (kayaks, snorkel gear, kids beach toys, well equipped kitchen etc). Super clean. Extremely friendly and helpful host. Thanks Raewyn – we loved staying at your place.
Absolutely beautiful is all I can say, we had the best family holiday here, Raewyn is an amazing host, the dogs yuppy and Galahad we love to bits, they were just like our family dogs while we stayed. House was super clean, beach was beautiful. can’t wait to come back for our next trip!

Amazing facilities, amazing views, amazing host and her son, 3 beautiful resident dogs, well disciplined.
Everything you need is supplied, great outdoor area with plenty of outdoor lounges, kayaking, one of the resident dogs enjoys to sit with you on the kayak.
Will visit again.
So Friendly, Helpful & Accommodating
We had an amazing nine days staying at Vaiakura in May this year. A huge thank you to Raewyn, our host for being so friendly, helpful and accommodating. It was a great fit for our family group of 12 and the two beachfront units had everything we needed and plenty of space for us all. We made good use of the kayaks and there was even buckets and spades for the kids to use on the beach. It’s the perfect peaceful spot for a relaxing holiday with the beach right on your doorstep (literally) and a few great coffee and food options within walking distance. We hope to be back one day!
Place was Amazing
We stay with Raewyn (the host) at Vaiakura Holiday Homes for 23 days. We found this place to be amazing. Everything in our unit was very clean. It had everything you needed for a great holiday. Best BBQ we used it every day. Everything you need for kayaking, shoes snorkeling gear & deck chairs for lazing in the sun on the beach.
Raewyn has set Vaiakura Holiday Homes up for a memorable holiday experience. We adopted a dog and called it Princes that stayed there. Give her a cuddle if you are there .
Thanks Raewyn for our time with you. We will be back.
Raewyn was a delightful and helpful hostess who made our stay so enjoyable. The accommodation was fantastic and we soon found ourselves relaxing in island time. No frills but a magical hideaway!
