Comfortable Beach-Front House

Riverside holiday home with kitchen and balcony
Koitiata, Turakina Beach is a small and friendly community only 30 minutes from Wanganui and Marton. The house is located on the beach front with large glass sliding doors that open up on to the huge deck that gives you 180 degree views from Wellington to Mt Taranaki. Close to the campground and across the road from a good children's playground and the main entrance to the beach. Beach has four wheel drive access. Great for bird watching, fishing, four wheel driving along the beach, dirtbikes and quads.

West coast beaches have a lot of character and are constantly changing. Black sand and driftwood abounds but there is still plenty of room to go for walks or do a bit of beachcombing and explore.

Modern facilities including dishwasher and washing machine.

There are no shops but Turakina Service Station is 10 minutes drive away or head into Wanganui to stock up. The community has a potluck dinner at the hall on the first Saturday of the month. We have a small chest freezer that can be used for longer stays or storing fish bait and fish.

Cell phone coverage is available but can be patchy.

We have recently installed a log burner downstairs. There are other heaters that can be moved around as needed.

4 friends
Four friends 50+ age group stayed for 2 nights. The property is well resourced, we all had our own rooms. Great shower, 2 toilets, kitchen has everything you need, comfy long couch in lounge, fireplace was amazing, beds super comfy. Definitely recommend this place. Beach is a bit of a walk, not one of our favourites but great to get out for fresh air and good views from the sand dunes. Mount Taranaki looked majestic especially when the sun set from this property balcony.

Peaceful getaway
A great place just to getaway and do almost nothing. Everything needed to enjoy cooking, reading, walking and birdwatching was at our fingertips. Far enough to be off the beaten track and then close enough to Whanganui for a supply run.
