Set on the West Coast of NZ’s South Island and featuring stunning views over Punakaiki Beach, Seaside Takutai House is a modern holiday home for up to 10 guests. Here, the water is so close that you can enjoy your morning coffee on a lazy beach stroll or, if you’re feeling a bit more active, you can take in the towering limestone cliffs of the famous Pancake Rocks nearby.

Perfect for nature-lovers, Seaside Takutai House is located right next door to Paparoa National Park which boasts 300 square kilometres of forests, rivers, beaches, and ancient limestone formations for you to discover. This expansive park has a paved loop track that you can hike, cycle or ride horseback on.

The house itself is set low against the landscape and away from the main road, making it ideal for hosting private getaways. Inside, you are greeted by a spacious and luxurious living area with stylish wood panelling, vaulted ceilings and polished concrete floors. The modern kitchen comes fully equipped with everything needed to prepare first class meals including a dining table for up to 8 guests.

At the other end of the living area is a cosy lounge area with an espresso-leather couch, comfy chairs and a wood-burning fireplace set against a gorgeous river stone feature-wall that spans from floor to ceiling. The room has full-length sliding glass doors that open fully to expand the space during summertime so you can enjoy the cool sea-breeze inside.

Directly outside of the main living area is an elongated deck which extends along the length of the house. The deck features a picnic table with wooden benches, barbecue, an outdoor fire pit, and a lovely wooden pathway which leads directly to the ocean.

Takutai House has 3 bedrooms that can comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests. The master bedroom has a luxurious king size bed and the second bedroom has both a king size bed and a single bed. Both of these bedrooms have sliding glass doors that lead onto the deck overlooking the beachfront.

For the kids, the third bedroom has two king single beds along with six single bunk beds. The master bedroom features a private ensuite bathroom while the other bedrooms share a central bathroom with heated towel racks and fluffy white towels.
