 Such a great bach!Thank you so much, will come again! 

Martins Bay - Kiwiana Bach on the Beach

 What a wonderful experience, right on the beach, you couldn't ask for a nicer location. The bach was tidy and well appointed. We would highly recommend this back to others and would certainly look to rent this again in the future. Just a little note, I wasn't sure if you were aware or not but it looked a bit like the element inside the oven was falling down. Thank you we had a lovely time.

 Design and location was great, and nice outside dining relaxing area, some more room in kitchen for food storage would have been helpful.
