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

  • Superb location

    Superb location. Quiet and peaceful. Small family with children would love this place. We saw yellow eyed penguins and seals. Hundreds of rabbits were running around. Beautiful sunset. Plenty of video tapes to watch n books to read. Like Katie said you must be the sort who love basic cottage environment. Nothing fancy. Point to note Fleurs is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

  • This is a sweet old beach house

    This is a sweet old beach house. It was perfect for us, but might not be for someone who is looking for something formal. We loved it, had everything we needed and was an incredibly quick walk to the beach. Thank you Katie!

    It meet my brief of an affordable place to relax for a couple of days with my children. Kept snug with the fire and enjoyed the character of the place.
