2 minutes walk from a private beach, this architecturally designed cottage is surrounded by bush, orchard and farmland with beautiful views over Onetangi Bay.

The private beach is a short walk away down a farm road and is perfect for swimming and lazing under a pohutukawa tree. If you're feeling energetic there are 18 hectares of coastal farm and native bush to walk over and explore.

The house is ideal for a romantic hideaway for two, or a relaxing holiday away from it all for a small group or family. You feel miles from anywhere although Onetangi and Palm Beach are just a short walk or a five minute drive away, and the supermarket, Ostend weekend markets, wineries and cafes are also close by.

The property is down a 1km unsealed driveway and you need to bring your own car (4WD preferable). Detailed directions will be provided when you book.

There is a second two bedroom house on the property (see listing #11503) available for rent. Both houses are very private but within close walking distance of each other.

Special conditions: Seven night minimum stay over the Christmas, New Year and summer holiday period. Two night minimum stay at other times. Fee quoted covers four guests. Additional guests are charged $50/night/adult and $25/night/child16yrs and under. A 20% deposit is required to secure your booking. A bond may be requested if you are a new Bookabach member or have no references. Check in from 3pm on day of booking; vacate by 11am on day of departure. No smoking inside house.

    A lovely cottage, big enough to accomodate 3 adults & a 3 month old baby without the baby waking everyone in the house. Beautiful early morning swims at the beach; idyllic.

    The house is very private and with the private beach just a short walk down the hill it suited everyone. The house is simple but has everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

  • A lovely quiet place to relax in

    A lovely quiet place to relax in. Lovely sea views. A short walk down hill to a private beach or a short drive to Onetangi Beach with great swimming, beach walk or a coffee. The house is small but very comfortable and well equipped and we enjoyed our Christmas here. Not so sure about the 5.30am wake up call from the local roosters though.

  • Not really a bach

    Not really a bach. A very comfortable, bright, airy house. Very private which is what we wanted.
