Hi there, We're Rachel and John from Palmerston North. We have two beautiful children and live rurally. John works on the farm and Rachel works in town within the Human Resources industry.
Owner purchased this House in 2019
Why Owner chose Himatangi Beach
We love this property, being so close to get to, yet when you get there, you feel worlds away from all of the hustle and bustle of the working week - this property is spacious and as our family gets older, it's going to be a great place to stay and have our friends and wider family stay with us also.
What makes this House unique
This property is unique in terms of it's location - the kids can walk to the playground, the beach or next door to the store. The Cossie club being across the road is also very handy when you don't wish to cook dinner! It's not often you can comfortably fit two families into a beach house, so for us that's a really unique feature and one that fits the way we like to holiday and entertain. We have brought back the interior rimu framing which looks just beautiful and the feature window really reflects the local nature that surrounds the property. It really is a beautiful property in a neat location - we hope you enjoy it and respect it just as much as we do.

An amazing first time experience booking and staying at a "bach" (which is an actual huge house). The location is perfect, next to the beach, local dairy, pub and awesome park for the kids. The house is amazingly big, tidy, modern and spacious for everyone. Everything you need is provided for in the house. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We stayed 3 nights over the long weekend, which I highly recommend and even longer if you can. Great communication from Rachel, she always kept in touch leading up to our stay. Any questions we're always answered quickly. Thank you so much for having us. We hope to return again and stay longer. It is definitely a place you can relax and feels like home away from home! 😊�
Thank you Ivy, and thank you for looking after the house as though it was your own.
We’d love to have you stay again some day.

Great beach getaway
Right next to the beach, this house was perfect for 5 adults to have a break. Clean, modern and warm with the fire upstairs.
Perfect! plenty of space and super homely.
Rachael called us to make sure everything was OK.
Would 100% recommend.
Heaps of space, great place to stay. Would stay again.
Had a really great experience. Heaps of space. Very tidy. Good location being so close to the beach and the fish'n chip shop.
Was a little bit cold downstairs for the winter without heating, but upstairs was fine with the fire going. Be perfect in the summer. Will definitely stay again.
Thank you for your comments. We agree it can get a bit chilly downstairs and we’re in the process of replacing all the windows with double glazing which should help a great deal.
It would be great to have you stay again.
Stay was great, great facilities, no complaints at all.
Our stay was amazing. Enjoyed the use of the fire on our winter evenings, and the fact that it had 2 kitchens and 2 bathrooms was great for the amount of people we had staying over the weekend. I would have loved to have had a bath in the amazingly beautiful bath tub but the plug wasn't co-operating so couldn't enjoy that function of the home. All in all I would definitely return to this beautiful home and enjoy all that it has to offer.
Thank you Rachel for being an amazing host.
Thank you Greer! Equally excellent guests - thank you for how you left our house.
Thanks for your feedback, we’ve resolved the bath plug issue, so if you do come stay again, you’ll be able to enjoy that too :-)
