Close to the beach and a short stroll from the Orewa's wide variety of shops, cafés and restaurants, Waves is ideally located for your stay on the Hibiscus Coast.

Downtown Auckland is an easy 30-minutes drive away via State Highway 1.


Waves is just a short stroll from Orewa's wide variety of shops, cafés and restaurants. Take a short amble along the beautiful foreshore from Waves, and you can enjoy stunning views of the bay and outlying islands.
