Classic Kiwi Bach - Port Waikato

 A great place to stay, comfortable beds, simple decor, everything we needed kitchen wise and a short stroll to a great beach. Thanks! 

Beachfront Bach 1 hour from Auckland

 We stayed at the bach for 2 nights for our work retreat. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Team got to relax and also get some work done in a peaceful environment. No reception was a bonus, which allowed us to dialogue face to face, rather everyone stuck on their phones/laptops. Access to the beach was amazing - nice walk. Definitely recommend it!

Classic Kiwi Bach - Port Waikato

 This property is a lovely authentic kiwi bach. It is very comfortable but simple and practical. It had everything we needed (for our family of four), and the back deck was great for eating meals or just relaxing. We very much enjoyed our five nights at this bach. 

Watch the Sunset from the deck

 We had a great time at Port Waikato, the bach was perfect, so well equipped with a big deck and wonderful view. I would highly recommend it, especially for families, there are plenty of toys for the little ones. 

Total Relaxation

 3 bedroom property comfortable and tidy. Location good for us with our boat and easy access to Waikato river at the boat ramp just 3 km away. Playground and tennis court was great for kids. Most enjoyable stay
