    Waimarama is a superb long stretch of sandy beach south of Cape Kidnappers facing East to the rising sun and the Pacific Ocean. While it usually experiences large rolling surf, it is excellent for swimming, surfing, fishing and walking. It is a 25 minute drive from Havelock North through farmland on a sealed but at times winding road. The White House is positioned to maximise privacy, shelter, views and sun.

    Obviously the main attraction is the beach. Waimarama is several kilometers long and is popular summer and winter. It has long stretches of private uninhabited areas and is wonderful for walking, jogging, surfcasting, fishing, surfing and swimming. Please note that Waimarama is a big rolling surf beach. It can experience undercurrents and dips and children should be supervised at all times. We would strongly advise swimming between the flags which are a very short distance from The White House. There is a shop for very basic facilities at Waimarama and a short drive from The White House is Wairanga - a challenging but very beautiful 9 hole rural golf course. There is also a small church and a vibrant Maori community at Waimarama. We also offer a wide range of activities that we are more than happy to arrange on your behalf.

    Property Rental

    As with all our properties, The White House is only available by booking the entire house. While we can provide additional servicing or catering if you wish, the property will be entirely yours for the duration of your stay. Privacy and seclusion are assured. Please note the minimum rental duration for The Boat House is 2 nights. Please contact Black Barn Vineyards for pricing details on small private functions and conferences. In addition we can arrange anything from private fishing guides on some of New Zealand's best trout fishing rivers through to beautifully prepared meals left for you to simply heat through in The White House kitchen. Please let us know what you would like arranged when you make your booking. All our properties are well patronised with particularly heavy demands during weekends. If a weekend stay is to be part of your itinerary we would strongly suggest you give us as much notice as possible. If you find the dates you prefer are not available we have an alternative beach front property at Waimarama Click here for more information.
