1970s style NZ bach.

Over the road from gorgeous sandy beach. Quiet and tranqill.

Approximately 3km walk along coastal track to famous Moeraki boulders.

5 minutes walk to Fleurs restaurant.

Visit yellow eyed penguin colony at light house ( 5minutes drive)

This is a very basic, non modern bach. Guests need to bring own linen. Guests must tidy up and clean house after their stay. This is important as otherwise subsequent guests are dissatisfied with standard of cleanliness.

If prospective guests do not like warn furnishings, spiders webs/trapped flies, lack TV reception or saggy beds this is not the bach for them!.

Finally we are unable to regularly visit the bach ourselves so can not guarantee how well the last guests have tidied up.

If none of this puts you off, I think you will enjoy your stay in this funky old bach as we do.

Special conditions: Guests may check in to the bach at 1pm and must vacate on day of departure by 12pm Smokers are welcome to stay but please do not smoke inside. Pets welcome

  • The property is exactly as Katie describes it as old and rustic...

    The property is exactly as Katie describes it as old and rustic but a well loved original NZ bach. The beds were comfortable and all necessary facilities are provided.

  • A lovely holiday home

    A lovely holiday home. Simple but full of charm. Just as a holiday home should be, right up to the assortment of board games and VCR movies..

  • We enjoyed staying at this property

    We enjoyed staying at this property. Several bays are within a short walk as well as a Tavern & restaurant. Living areas are spacious with plenty of seating. Bedrooms weren't very big but the beds were comfortable. The deck was sheltered and sunny and being enclosed meant littlies could run around. The fire worked well and we sat on the floor playing one of the many games available. Plenty of tapes to watch as well. The piano and guitar were a bonus. Would stay again.

    Some remedial work going on at the back, I'm sure once finished it'll be even better.
