Comfortable modern cottage in a sheltered garden with its own streamfront. In a quiet suburban setting, 5-10 minutes walk to Otaki Beach, our bach has generous outdoor living areas looking over the Waitohu Stream and onto farmland. We chose it as our retreat because it is warm, private and sheltered from coastal winds, while still within the sound of the sea. For winter nights there's a woodburner and firewood. It's casual but tidy, fully furnished, and equipped as we would hope to find a bach we rent.
From the bach you'll be able to visit Otaki's outlet stores, explore the Tararuas, or take Buttercup, the rowboat, for a lazy row down the stream to the beautiful, wide north end of Otaki Beach.

  •  Very private location, place was well equipped. Really enjoyed our stay. 

  •  very pleasant place to stay, with deck overlooking the stream, ducks and doves and bush.. everything you need for a relaxing break, including magazines, table games, piano, TV and stereo. Great restaurant at Byron's Resort for a special occasion or just sit on the deck with a bottle of wine. We felt very safe and secure. We enjoyed our short stay there and will go back again. 

  •  We had a really relaxing stay in a quiet and peaceful setting. Very comfortable with everything needed available. Would definitely considering staying again so recommend to anyone looking for some time out :)
