A New Zealand classic bach designed for families, built in the 1970s, 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.

  • Perfect location especially for Kiwi League tourney weekend

    Perfect location especially for Kiwi League tourney weekend. May not have all the bells and whistles of a full on holiday home but has everything you need in a family bach. I'm sure would have been even better if weather held up but my family enjoyed their stay as was great opportunity to spend quality family time. Perfect setup for those wanting to get out of the city and handy to everything. Would definitely return and have already recommended to others.

  • Great, quiet location

    Great, quiet location. Nice big property. Our dog loved running around. Fully fenced and secure. We went end of winter. Would be better in summer time.

    Beginning of September is the earliest we rent the bach as it is not really a winter time retreat. Unfortunately this weekend's weather was not great,

  • This property was perfect for us! A proper kiwi bach located across...

    This property was perfect for us! A proper kiwi bach located across the road from the beach, but on a large fully fenced back section. It really felt like we were away from the world! Would highly recommend, especially to those who want extra space for dogs or kids to run around. I have already booked again!

  • We had the best experience staying with our family at the bach

    We had the best experience staying with our family at the bach. I will recommend to everyone and we are already prebooking our next stay. The little things you offer in your bach made a big difference for us from Auckland

    Awesome trees, native birds, heaps of space and great games and books. Loved having the beach just across the road.
