 Perfect Bach. Really well appointed and in a great location. Easy to deal with owners. Thanks for a great stay.

Delightful Beach Bach Retreat

 Great little bach, really close to the beach. Would definitely stay there again. 

Delightful Beach Bach Retreat

 Fantastic location across from the beach. The house is older but is very clean and tidy with everything we needed provided. 

Delightful Beach Bach Retreat

 What a lovely bach! We were so impressed with how comfortable, cozy and attractive it was. It had everything we needed for our stay. It is located just across the road from the beach which we made the most of! We also enjoyed sitting in the gorgeous garden with some beers, and walked the short distance (several times!) to the fantastic Luke's Kitchen! If we weren't moving to the South Island from Auckland we would be regulars at this bach! We'll be recommending it to all our friends! 

Delightful Beach Bach Retreat

 The location was outstanding. Hearing the sounds of the waves as we sat on the front table in the sunshine was so nice. The beds were so soft and lovely that we all had 3 sensational nights sleep. MUST walk down to Luke's Kitchen for delicious Pizza and a chat with the team there. Hope to stay here again soon.
