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.

 Awesome home beside the river. Warm, cosy, everything there and a lovely wood burner for chilly nights. Read books, made a puzzle, ate and had a few wines. Watching the birds in the overhanging trees and hearing the sea... a wonderful relaxing place that we took advantage of between moving out of a rental and into our new home. Highly recommended. 

 A wonderful, private and quiet place to get away from it all. It was spotless on arrival with everything laid out so well we felt right at home. The stream and buttercup are such a bonus and great fun for kids. Thanks so much for letting us stay in your wonderful place. We'll be back! 

 The property was in a quiet location which gave a peaceful, rural atmosphere. We enjoyed the proximity to the stream and did manage a row out to the sea. All amenities were useful and supportive of our stay in a well presented property. Thank you. 

 The rowing boat, the beach, the house and the place. 

 Lovely and neat property, quiet and very private. Great ambience and vacation feel to it. Overall a nice cosy place to get away to.
