Clifton Retreat

8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 4 baths
This low-key property is located on the beach with spectacular panoramic views of the rippling tide beyond. Scandanavian-inspired décor complements its laid-back interior design scheme, generously spaced out over 2 open-concept levels. Te Awanga, a quaint beachside community, is home to a wide-range of activities—including wineries, secluded swimming spots, and mom-and-pop dining experiences.
Supple sofas sit atop polished hardwood floors. Oversized windows illuminate the living space with rays of natural light. Meal prep is made easy in the state-of-the-art kitchen; why not switch things up and grill on the outdoor barbecue for a casual dinner at the wooden picnic table? The kids will enjoy being next to a playground—and you can conveniently keep an eye on them from the wraparound porch. Verdant foliage and a tall fence fringe an edge of the pool, ensuring a private atmosphere. In the evening, take a seat on the verandah to witness the sky come alive with tangerine hues as the sun sets over the horizon. 
A 15-minute drive takes you to friendly, quiet Havelock North where you can enjoy an espresso at an intimate café, walk through thriving art galleries, and taste the village’s celebrated, locally-cultivated honey. Just up the road, discover The Farm—a 5,000 acre chunk of land that’s home to the Gannet Colony and several miles of scenic Hawkes Bay coastline. An excursion to Napier, noted as one of the most significant Art Deco cities in the world, is a must-see.
