Located on the eastern part of the North Island, lying on a peninsula is the area of Mahia. A part of the local Maori culture for centuries, the name “Mahia” comes from Maori meaning “indistinct sound”. Furthermore, according to Maori legend, the navigator Whatonga came to Mahia in search of his grandfather Toi, so the area is of a somewhat important cultural significance. These days the area is mixed with people of European descent and Maori and is a popular tourist destination for people looking to surf, to hang out on the beach, and to go hiking or fishing. If you’re planning to visit Mahia check out these great accommodations. Here are the best Bookabach holiday homes in Mahia, New Zealand.
Located right on the beach, this amazing home is a great spot for families looking to spend some time by the water. The home sleeps up to 12 people so there is no shortage of space. There’s a large backyard patio area with a barbecue and lots of lawn space for cricket. Several amenities are included here and pets are welcome as well but should remain outside or in designated areas. WiFi, TV, and a fireplace are all on site as well as a fully equipped kitchen.
