This 'Lovely Olde Lady' Kiwi Bach was built in the 50's with PLEASANT RELAXING SEA VIEWS but has been fully and tastefully renovated with a modern kitchen and bathroom but retains it's character and charm with the polished solid rimu floors . The town centre is only 1 minute drive away with a modern New World supermarket for your groceries, wines and beers, plus many other shops. Sit on the deck or look from the main bedroom or lounge and enjoy the peaceful sea views with boats passing by, just 80 metres away. No longer is the bach on the main road as a new highway has been built. Walk up the road from the bach and you are next to the modern waterway houses with their own jetty's.

Try the tropical hot thermal pools at 121a Cooks Drive, Whitianga

If you wish to wine/dine there are many cafes, try Nina's Cafe great coffee and homemade food and restaurants just 5 minutes walk. Try Sangam authentic Indian Restaurant and BYO for a great value meal. For the kids Buffalo Beach is about 7 minutes walk or 1 minute by car. Why not catch the ferry to Flaxmill Bay and Cooks Beach both safe and wonderful sandy beaches. Ferry will cost $2:50

 Great location 

 The property was everything that was advertised, in fact we felt it was nicer than we were expecting. Excellent location, all appliances worked, no complaints or downside at all. Would recommend to anyone not wanting the 'latest and greatest'. 

 We really enjoyed our relaxed week in this wee home. An older NZ back in well kept order. Very comfortable beds....lovely location. Highly recommended. 

 The Bach was comfortable, 10 minute walk to town and we had everything we needed. 

 Close to everything, but very, very, quiet. Walk to town, harbour, supermarket etc...great for kids with plenty of lawn, and dog friendly too..! Perfect. Lovely to sit on the deck and see the harbour and boats coming and going. Bit low on storage for food and towels etc..especially when there's a family of you. Have requested a booking again for next year. 

  •  Thanks for your feed back. Storage will be sorted this year - looking forward to having you back.
