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.

Please note it is a very comfortable bach but suits people who want to experience the bach rather than holiday home experience.

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.

    Fantastic, well appointed traditional bach with all the bits and pieces for a great family stay. You hardly need to bring anything else. Great games, toys, outside swing, barbecue and very close to the beach and nearby harbour-side activities.

    Great Kiwi Bach with everything you need, very spacious, comfortable beds, lovely big fully fenced section and so handy to the beach! The kids loved climbing the tree and swinging on the swing and the Spoodle loved chasing around the garden. We will definitely be coming back!
