Piha Quintessential Kiwi Bungalow

 A beautiful 1930's bungalow, tastefully decorated in south pacific art and furnishings, with palms and ferns outside, on a lovely road with giant native trees, native birds and a short walk down a footpath to one of New Zealand's most stunning beaches - seriously! Piri is equal to the superlatives of this home. We couldn't have fund better. This is a true NZ Bach -- it is simple yet cmfortable and well-appointed for a stay and expresses the beauty of the land. 

Piha Quintessential Kiwi Bungalow

 Good value, location and privacy. Lovely homely feel. Range of DVDs a bonus with changeable weather. Gorgeous walk to the shop or along the beach. Lovely to have the fresh towels and linen if needed. My husband appreciated the fridge and barbie. 

Piha Quintessential Kiwi Bungalow

 Nestled at the quieter end of Piha, the bach was just what we required for a long weekend. Great location, very cool retro furniture, and a very well kitted out kitchen. Lovely artworks and good quality linen, which really makes the place special. Only small negative is the beds are very soft, which may not suit some couples. 

Classic Kiwi Beach House

 Awesome bach. Has everything for a great stay. The main cottage lovingly decorated.
