  • Great bach in an amazing location

    Great bach in an amazing location. Literally a one minute walk to the beach. Additional area downstairs with table tennis table was fantastic for our three sons.

  • Perfect property in an incredible location

    Perfect property in an incredible location. Peaceful and relaxing on a pristine beach. The house had everything we needed. We did not need to use the car for 4 days as the house was so comfortable and there were great places to explore starting at the front door

  • The property is lovely and well equiped

    The property is lovely and well equiped. We stayed here with two families very comfortably. It is very close to a lovely beach which is safe for young children but has a little wave which is fun and is just down the road from Sandy Bay for bigger waves. It is set in a pocket of native bush and has a nice outdoor deck with a bush and bay outlook. The driveway is steep and so we left our boat in the local camp ground at Tutukaka on recommendation and this worked really well.

  • This is a very very beautiful location, peaceful, lovely house

    This is a very very beautiful location, peaceful, lovely house. We enjoyed it very much. I only have two doubts - We chose not to sleep in the downstairs bedroom because it felt damp - upstairs no problem at all. And more generally - I find all baches in this area expensive... I guess that's just how it is, but I still find it a pity! (to contextualise - I paid 3 weeks of european rent for 5 nights, even though the owner was kind enough to offer a lower price because we were only 3 people)
