Waitarere is a low key, safe, homestyle, charming, quiet, village with a great shop that makes its own bread, cakes and grinds coffee beans, a fish & chip shop, two cafes, tennis court, two playgrounds, and a recycling center. Surf and police patrol all summer. Ten minutes south of Foxton with its second hand shops and museums, ten minutes north of Levin with its cinemas and supermarkets.

This is a place where kids feel really safe and learn to play on the road and walk to the shop. Good for an adults only get-away too !

The BBQ is not working until further notice.

The bach suits : two couples and some kids, one couple and kids, single adult and kids, group of adults, an adult couple.

The bach is lovingly fitted out retro / vintage style and is 5 minutes walk from the beach. There are two queen beds, a pull out sofa, and three bunk beds. Terrific light all day, from the morning sun on the sheltered outdoor breakfast table at the back, to the afternoon sun shining on your drinks on the deck and while you wave at everyone passing by. Microwave, heat pump/air con, dishwasher, espresso machine, washing machine, a Bose ipod dock with stereo speakers for your music. One shower inside, one out. Board games, books, and wifi - its up to you if you give the kids the password !

In winter, all beds have electric blankets and there is a heat pump. The floor and roof are fully insulated, which makes the house very cosy, warm and dry.

Arrive after 4 pm and leave by 11 am, so we can clean up and be ready for the next guest. Please ask for different times before the booking starts.

There will be a $100 bond which is usually refundable, after the cleaner has been.

Money is paid in full (or in two installments) into a bank account. No cash.

Once the money is paid in full, you will receive an email with all the notes about alarms, keys etc

I can do a deal on stays longer than a week. For repeat customers, there can be a discount, or, depending on bookings, a free night.

  • Super comfy bach

    Super comfy bach. Central location. Very comfortable bed and great funky decor. Everything you needed in the kitchen and then more, but missing salt and pepper - we didn't pack the little essentials. Very warm and cosy. Great selection of games too.
