Hansel & Gretel Oakura 5 min walk to beach & set centrally within the village

Holiday home in Oakura with kitchen and fireplace
Tucked away down a drive in the heart of Oakura, lies this old style Hansel and Gretel house. All you need is to stroll up the drive and you have all the funky little cafes, restaurants, bars and 4 square at your finger tips. Or just a 5 minute stroll down the road, you can soak up the beach vibes, sitting at a popular restaurant on the beach called Black Sands, sipping a cold wine or beer while watching the children play on the sand or watching the sunset. If the beach is not where you are at, you can walk a short walk and you will be at the river. Which ever takes your fancy, it is all accessible. If you are up for the surf, just down the road on state highway 45 are all the popular surf breaks.

When you walk into this Hansel and Gretel style house you will feel like its your home away from home. It is not the brand spanking new home that makes you feel like you cannot relax, it is a home that allows you to be you and have the sense of relaxation while on holiday.

BEDROOM 1 ........1x King size bed
BEDROOM 2.........1x Queen size bed
BEDROOM 3.........2 single beds

There is a great lawn for that back yard cricket and is, of course all private.

Like a home away from home
Contractors working nearby needing a place to stay. Clean tidy and fire going when we got there. Would highly recommend this place to stay. A walk across the road for food and other essentials. Perfect.

5/5 Excellent

fabulous house and location
The photos do not do this house justice, it is a beautiful house with everything you need. The location is great, a quick walk to the beach, across the role from a great pub, fish n chip shop and 4 Square shop. Mel was excellent and we would definitely stay there again
