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

    Stoneseal Bach appealed to us because it was very much like a bach that we owned, but was burnt down years ago by a careless intruder. We miss it still, so this is why, to us, it was worth 5 stars - it brought back memories for us. It has plenty of DVDs, videos and board games to play on a rainy day, as well as a good quality radio which a number of motels don't appear to provide anymore.

  • Just a wonderful Bach

    Just a wonderful Bach. Yes cobwebby and the odd dead fly but EXACTLY want we needed. We got the fire going, got cozy and had an amazing time. Walked to the boulders, I ran to the Lighthouse and back (10km) and we wandered down and had early dinner at Fleurs. The best bach we have stayed at so far!
