Small Old Kiwi style bach across a quiet road from surf beach at Island View. Views of Mayor Island from lounge and bedroom windows.

Not as busy as the north beach being half way along the 10km beach. Enjoy nice quiet strolls along the beach especially during the off peak period.

Two minutes walk to local dairy which sells everything! ( well almost )

Friendly local residents and neighbours keep an eye on the property and will inform you of whats on in the district.

Try some fishing ,surfcasting or torpedo longlines that the locals have so much success using. Bring you boat for harbour or open water excursions , you can launch off the north end of Waihi beach or at Anzac bay , the boat club also has a ramp.

Waihi beach is centrally located between Waihi and Katikati , Whangamata and Tauranga for day trips . Something to do if the weather isn't the best , surprisingly the beach doesn't get as much rain as the above mentioned towns.


Special conditions: We need at least a weeks notice as we post the keys out. Smoking is not allowed inside . Pets outside only with prior approval, but dogs must be controlled. Please don't upset our neighbours with unreasonable behaviour.

  • Great location

    Great location. Loved being right across from the beach in a wonderful little town. Bach is pretty basic and funky - just like an old time Kiwi Bach! It is what it is at a great price and has everything you need for a no fuss, comfortable holiday. I would love to go back.

  • Wonderful location on quiet road and right across from the beach

    Wonderful location on quiet road and right across from the beach. Easy walk to corner shops and good walk into Waihi beach village. The basic bach was fine and what we were looking for, but is now poorly maintained, roof leaks in heavy rain, deck and stairs seemed shakey. Beds were very saggy and uncomfortable. Not much in the way of cleaning products to help us keep it clean, and a few basic supplies would encourage guest to leave their surplus supplies also. but a good stay.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for letting us know about the leaks which hopefully we have just fixed. Most people only stay a week and don't want to clean so we don't leave much as the cleaner does it all when they leave.

    The location is great, just across from the beach , and a few minutes drive into town. The bach is very traditional. Our family was very comfortable with the sleeping and kitchen arrangements.

  • Bach was as described, well loved, old style, basic

    Bach was as described, well loved, old style, basic. Just the sort of bach we were used to and bought much laughter and reminiscing with its quirky nature. Enjoyed our stay and especially liked the easy and quick access to the beach.
