  • Absolute beachfront with a beautiful view of the Inner Gulf sea and sunsets
  • Oneroa village with all amenities is an easy 7 minutes walk: or 2 minutes walk to bus stop
  • Spacious, child-friendly, traditional NZ holiday home in a landscaped garden setting.

A vintage cottage that captures all-day sun and sea in an absolute beachfront location, this holiday home recalls the nostalgia of traditional Kiwi summer escapes, but also offers the added comfort of contemporary amenities. Comobach sits on The Esplanade directly facing the warm tidal waters of a safe beach, basks in all-day sunshine, and sunsets are often sublime! The original bach has been extended and opened up to allow an easy indoor-outdoor flow from all living areas.

French doors open directly from both dining area and lounge onto a private courtyard which is furnished with a 2-burner gas bbq, large table and seating, and enjoys all-afternoon through to late evening sun.

Doors from the large lounge open onto yet another deck and the ever-changing seascape. The lounge (black leather sofa and sofa-bed plus two very large cane chairs) is equipped with a SmartTV with Sky channels including Sport, and access to Netflix and Lightbox on unlimited broadband, stereo, and free Internet WIFI.

There is a large, fully-equipped farmhouse-style kitchen/dining where an original, now antique, black cast-iron stove takes pride of place (but is not operational - it is not connected to a chimney!). There is an electric oven with ceramic cooktop; plenty of benchtop space; a large fridge/freezer, microwave, lots of cookware, and plenty of cupboard space. Highchair available. as is a portable cot.

Large and sunny, the bathroom has a glass shower, vanity and WC, and has been opened up to incorporate an efficient laundry area (washing machine, wall-mounted drier, tub).

This is a flat, beach level property with generous lawn and recreation space, bounded by bach, entrance drive, and the beach across the road.

There is ample parking.

    The ComoBach is simply brilliant - there were butterflies, tui, horses jogging by and water gently lapping! It is a place that was ideal for some R and R. It did get very cold at night and the mosquitos were much more active than anticipated - but the batch was perfect - thank you.

    Thanks for your kind words, Heather. Yes the cold snap was a little unexpected - we have since changed over to winter heaters and electric blankets. Also we supply at least two mosquito burners. Regards, John M, the owner.

  • Wow! What an amazing property in a stunning location

    Wow! What an amazing property in a stunning location. The perfect Kiwi bach. Lovely and spacious, plenty of room for our family of 5. Nothing too flash but still has all the modern amenities and very clean and tidy. Added bonus was all the toys and books for the kids. Only wish we could have stayed longer.

    That said, the bach was extremely well positioned beside Blackpool beach and was light and bright with lovely views. We were however, generally disappointed at the 'comfort' levels, which were reasonably basic and the water pump kept failing (which I understand has now been replaced). Thankfully we immersed ourselves in the Waiheke activities and totally recommend SegWai Tours.

  • Great location

    Great location. Sunny and spacious. But very rudimentary kitchen facilities. Frig froze the salad veg in the crisper bins. Oven very dirty and smoking with fat. Dish sponge smelly. Only 2 teatowels for 5 days. General cleaning was ok but dirty under beds and behind kitchen bins. Quite overpeiced given these standards.

    Owner/manager responds:

    As owners of the property we checked the professional cleaners' work before this 4-day booking: as previous guests have noted it is always very clean. When we checked again after this departure we found that the frige temperature had been set too low. We also found that a heavy-bottomed frying pan had been left scorched black. The brand new BBQ has not been used. There is a full laundry for the convenience of longer-stay tenants - and those who use a lot of tea-towels!
