Peaceful harbourside self contained unit

 This is a fab place. Don't be put off by the idea of the bunks spoling the ambience. They are very unobtrusitively positioned if you are just a couple as we were. If a family or friends the studio is very spacious and the bunks will come in handy! The outlook is great and Kawhia is unspoilt still. 

Step back in time on the Waikato West coast.

 Great setting, having the ensuite room was awesome for the older children. Close enough to walk to the village and far enough away to be lovely and quiet. Will definitely stay again! 

Amazing waterviews, set amongst the kowhai trees

 What an amazing place. Stayed for a month and truly loved it. Totally away from the rate race. Views to die for and lots to do. Perfect escape for our family. Bach has everything one could wish for and more. Comfortable and pleasant. We have declared this our best holiday ever! We will be back. I highly recommend it. Though selfishly I would like to keep it a secret :) Bliss, awesome. peaceful, friendly, remote, stunning gardens. Feel totally relaxed after our time there! 

'Dirt bike patch'
