    We were delighted at the simplicity of this special and charming bach with a unique family history. It is close to the waters edge with a beautiful view. It is well equipped and comfortable. We were very happy that our pet could also enjoy the surrounds. Thanks for a truly memorable mini birthday break. We hope to return.

    A relaxing kiwi bach in a special place, beautiful views. Lovely to wonder down the garden and end up on the shoreline.

  • Gorgeous location on the water's edge

    Gorgeous location on the water's edge. A true Kiwi Bach in the old tradition, but with modern comforts and with a lovely history, owned by members of the same family since it was built. We had a truly enjoyable stay despite some inclement weather on one day.

  • We had a wonderful stay

    We had a wonderful stay. This bach is right on the water and the outlook was fantastic. The bach itself is charming and exactly what we were looking for. Thank you for allowing our pets to join us. We would love to return and enjoy more of the beach walks and give the fishing a go. Thanks for sharing your family bach!
