Otaki Family Beach Bach

 Good basic NZ bach. Great value for money and had everything we needed. Very short walk to the beach. Would definitely stay there again. 

Otaki Beach Retreat: Treat yourself to time out

 We chose the property because of the location, the fact that there was ample space for our family (3 bedrooms), linen included etc. We didn't expect the complimentary eggs, home-made bread and milk - what a lovely gesture. My family felt right at home. Thank you Di :-) 

Tranquil on Tasman - Otaki Beach

 Really enjoyed our stay..has everything you could possibly need 

My Serenity at Otaki Beach

 A lovely peaceful bach. We very much enjoyed our stay. Central to lots of day activities including golf, shopping and so so close to the beach. Very much recommend. 

Peaceful cottage beside the Waitohu Stream

 This must be the best value bach in Otaki, and the best managed! Nestled amongst the trees on the bank of the Waitohu stream. Great views of the stream from the large open plan lounge/kitchen. Short walk to the beach. Boat and kayak for you paddling pleasure. Highly recommended. 

My Serenity at Otaki Beach

 Loved this place. Watching the sunsets from the upstairs balcony was magical!
