The closest motel to the sand and surf at Wainui Beach!Wainui Beach is situated 5 minutes (by car) north of Gisborne city centre and 50 metres from the sand and surf of Wainui Beach.We are a classic kiwiana More beach holiday motel with lush sub-tropical gardens and grassy lawns right outside our 9 spacious, self-contained 1 and 2 bedroom ground floor units.Access to Gisborne's most popular surfing and walking beach is literally a hop, jump and a skip away! We are pet friendly and your family dog will love the long golden sandy beach to run and play on, as will the kids! Outside of the holiday season (Dec/Jan) it is practically your own private beach. A little piece of paradise on the East Coast.This is the perfect location for your annual summer holiday or for a short winter break when the sun is shining only in Gisborne! Less
