The Minnivey Bach is a welcoming, relaxing bach for the whole family to enjoy. There are fabulous views, unspoilt beaches, and spectacular sunrises await the discerning guest.

Gore Bay offers great outdoor pursuits, such as biking, surfing, fishing & scenic bush/beach walks. The tennis courts are just a 2 minute walk away. From the rocks you can dive for paua (New Zealand Abalone) and crayfish. Gore Bay, and other beaches in the area also offer good surf-casting. And at the end of a hard day at the beach you can put your feet up & enjoy the best Gore Bay views.

Cheviot - just 8 km's away provides everything you need, including some very nice cafes and galleries. You can also make day trips to Hanmer Springs for the hot pools, or Kaikoura for whale, dolphin and seal watching by sea or air.

Gore Bay, one of the South Island's best kept secrets!!

Special conditions: Please note this is an old Bach and we do our best to keep it clean but it's certainly not hotel standard! The shower & toilet area are the next things we want to update. (Need that Lotto win!!!) Linen is not supplied - you will need your own sleeping bags/pillows. There are column heaters in every room but you may prefer to bring your own blankets in the depth of winter.

  • Great location for exploring North Canterbury's east coast

    Great location for exploring North Canterbury's east coast. The house was well kitted out, had a great view from lounge and nice outdoor area in the sun. Also had heaps of activities - from puzzles and books to ping pong, darts and a pool table.

  • Perfect location to beach, tennis courts

    Perfect location to beach, tennis courts. Games room a winner. Lovely deck out the back. Gorgeous views. One recommendation would be to fix the washing machine and wash bed covers and under blankets.
