A New Zealand classic bach designed for families, set in a fully fenced quarter acre section with beautiful trees and room to play cricket. On a back section, protected from the wind and quiet but only one minute's walk down the drive to the safe surf beach. Bring your kayaks as we are only ten minutes walk to Ohiwa Harbour which offers wonderful kayaking.

Safe for toddlers or dogs as it is fully fenced. Open plan living with two bedrooms in the bach and two more bedrooms in a recently built sleepout. Only one bathroom but cleverly designed with two showers (one outdoors) and two toilets.

Fully equipped with washing machine, microwave, highchair and portable cot. Although we ask you to bring your own linen there are plenty of duvets and blankets. Although it sleeps 9 it is really only suitable for 6 adults. The other beds are more suitable for children as they are divans.

There is a pizza oven that you can use. However you cannot use driftwood so you will need to bring your own wood. If you want to use it please let us know and we will send some instructions and suggestions about where to get suitable wood.

To complete the bach experience there a range of family board games. There is no TV but there are speakers if you have a laptop to view DVDs and a blue tooth speaker for your i-pod/phone.

Please note there is a cleaning fee. So treat yourself as this means you do not have to do any cleaning when you leave. We just ask you leave the bach tidy and swept.

  • We can't say enough positive things about our stay

    We can't say enough positive things about our stay. The games cupboard resulted in eruptions of laughter both nights we stayed. The outside shower helped wet and cold children that came back late from getting pipi's at the beach. The pizza oven was out to good use with the children designing their own pizzas. The only problem we had was that we hadn't booked to stay longer. Would definitely book for at least a week next time we're in town!! ??

  • Lovely private spot across the road from the beach

    Lovely private spot across the road from the beach. Basic furnishings but more than adequate. Hope to be back soon.

    Great for pets being fully fenced and excellent location. Also really clean for an older style bach.

    This is the original typical New Zealand Bach. No bells and whistles, just a simple no fuss fun family get away without the distractions of television and internet! We loved it and enjoyed walking along the beach which is just over the road.
