 Great location, easy to deal with and my family had a lovely time staying here. Our dog was also welcome. It is walking distance from the beach and Oneroa town. The bach is as described and is great for a relaxed holiday. Cute place to stay and nice garden, my family loved it and would stay here again! 

 Had a great stay. A proper bach - no tv!! Made us talk to each other and do jigsaw puzzles!! A proper family holiday. 

 We had a great time staying at Shabby chic, it was so relaxing and had everything we needed. We didn't use the car once during the visit as we were only a couple of minutes walk from beautiful beaches and town. Very relaxing atmosphere at the bach. Great to sit in the garden and listen to the birds. Would recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing getaway. We are definitely going back. 

  •  Hey , so glad you enjoyed yourselves and the Bach served your purpose well. It is a very quiet neighbourhood despite being so close to the village. Loved the little shell and leaf sail boat ... Come agin anytime!

 Loved the bach, really nice old retro original kiwi bach. Superbly decorated, will be back! 

  •  Oh thank you so much, it is indeed a little old Kiwi Bach with character and hopefully cute and cosy! I'm glad your family enjoyed your stay and you are very welcome anytime. Kind regards, Anna-Michele

 It is, in fact, a short five minute walk into the village. It's also only 10-12 minutes walk (with pre-schoolers) to the Little Oneroa Beach playground. The outdoor BBQ area is fenced, so the kids/dog are secure. There's a deep veranda, so if it's raining there's somewhere else to go. Things to know: There's no TV. I found this wonderful. There's monopoly, so we sunk a few hours into old rivalries. There are mosquitos. This is true of the whole island, year round… Indoors too!
