Hot Water Beach Bach

 Wonderful location with a view across the beach and out to sea. Great section for kids when not swimming with space to run about. It suited our style of holiday living. 

Hot Water Beach: 'Taumata' Holiday Home

 Excellent accommodation as described in listing. Have stayed at Taumata a number of times, and never fails to delight. A great Bach in an equally great location! 

Stunning Hot Water Beach Views

 Gorgeous home with spectacular views, it's well maintained with everything you could possibly want for a beach stay. 

Enjoy our unique Hot Water Beach with hot spas.

 A magical location and a lovely property. We were made to feel very welcome. We loved the views, the tranquility and the closeness to hot water beach. The cottage is comfortable and had everything we needed for a longer stay. We appreciated the local knowledge of our hosts and gifts of organic apricots from the garden. One of our best Bookabach holidays. Highly recommended. 

Hot Water Beach Cottage

 Perfect location, directly across the road from the beach and cafes etc. You can comfortably fit four people but it would be the absolute perfect spot for two. 

Hot Water Beach Bach

 A fantastic location and gorgeous bach offering everything we need and love about a beach holiday. Not only is the bach fabulous but the owners have been extremely kind in helping us out when we had to leave unexpectedly. We couldn't have asked for more.We will be back :) Thank you again for your kindness.
