Stunning holiday home close to beach

Riverside Whakatane Holiday home in Coastlands with kitchen
Nestled in Piripai, Apanui House provides a home away from home. With quality furnishings and tasteful decorating, the house is big enough to provide that all needed space for families to enjoy. The decadent sun drenching deck will allow you to sit back and relax the day away or enjoy a lovely evening bbq with friends and family. The large backyard will provide space for the kids to stretch out and enjoy kicking a ball around the fully fenced property.

Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of town, the house is still close enough to the beaches, shopping Hub and town. A quick drive in the car will get you to most of the great activities available in sunny Whakatane including live volcanoes, native forests, white sand beaches, tasty fish, cultural areas and friendly people. All of New Zealand in one package.

A great place for families, professionals and anyone who wants to be in Whakatane.

Very comfortable beds, heaps of space in kitchen which was well equipped except for no can opener! The floor in the bathroom got very wet from the shower as the shower curtain wasnt long enough. Otherwise a great place to stay☺
