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 the rowboat for a lazy row down the stream to the beautiful, wide north end of Otaki Beach.

 The property was very comfortable and private, close to the beach and the river and swing in the back were great fun for the kids. 

 Great location, close to the beach and shops etc. Lovely setting bush and river - very peaceful. Well kitted out kitchen. comfortable place to stay. This was our second stay. Would definitely stay again. 

 Peaceful and private and very comfortable 

 The Bach was very clean and comfortable. The quiet, peaceful location was a huge bonus and we enjoyed a really great holiday. 

 The bach is very well stocked. You really do not need to bring anything (apart from linen). It feels more like a home (complete with piano) than a bach. Quiet and peaceful is how I would describe the location. Having breakfast on the deck while looking out over the stream and the 20+ doves in the trees was lovely. We enjoyed making our way to the beach in the rowing boat, what a treat! Can't wait to go again in Winter time with the wood burner going.
