Bach or holiday home, 9 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 17)
Matt and Cec Radford have four children and purchased Marainanga in 2017. Ironically, Marainanga was owned by Cec's Great Grandfather and her grandmother was born there in 1919. It has since been out of the family hands for 75 years-that is until 3 years ago!!! We are very passionate about the property and feel very humbled to carry on working the land as our forebears did. We have plenty of experience in the hospitality industry. The Vision for the property was to open it up to the public so they can come and share our slice of Paradise and get away from the hustle and bustle of their own lives. The Accommodation is very comfortable with plenty of character and great space-perfect for big gatherings as it has 9 bedrooms. After many a request we have opened up Farm Tracks so you can ride your own horse, push bike or walk over the diverse farmland with exceptional views. Catering is available.

Great place in a really nice setting. Would like to stay again. Cheers.
Lovely house to stay in, has everything you need. Really nice setting and close to the beach. Had an awesome stay.
We loved it
Family gathering for Granny’s 80th - 3 generations 2 to 80
Great place for a group holiday- will definitely keep it in mind for another occassion
Great big group getaway stay
Ample room for everyone to stay, and two lounges makes it so much more pleasant to easily separate from the kids. Though the fireplace was the prime location for all of us. A well equipped kitchen and a good bbq helped keep us well fed.
A great location to explore the beach. The massive dunes a highlight for young and old. Well worth the drive out to the coast to see the sea, the moon and stars, the landscape and beauty of the rolling countryside.
We must come back in summer for the full sea and surf experience.
Our only disappointment was for our daughter who wanted to dog-nap a puppy to come home with us. Sooo cute.
Lovely rural property
Our group of 8 thoroughly enjoyed our time in this rustic themed accommodation. Ideal for a large group. House well equipped with everything to make an easy and enjoyable stay. The owners very friendly and approachable.
Exceptionally private and quiet, well equipped and tonnes of space
Our family of five loved the space and tranquility. It is very private and relaxing. In the country yet 2 mins to a beach. The owners were magnificent. Closeby but not intrusive in any way. While great for a single family for a total getaway this would be great place for a large gathering as it sleeps 18. A bit of a drive to get there but worth it. Thank you for letting us share this place.
