Our tranquil one bedroom holiday bach is full of character. Situated in a rural location it is only six-eight minutes from the town and beaches. It comfortably sleeps four but can accommodate two adults in a double and three children in high loft bunks. This a basic but cosy space created with love to give it rustic charm. Much of the space is up-cycled or recycled and is a quirky mix of contemporary and character. Set in the countryside close to the Waimata River, it is commonplace to hear birds and cicadas. The property has had many functions over the years until finally being converted into a small dwelling. There is a covered deck for dining and enjoying a glass of wine while looking out over the ramshackle garden.
There is plenty of outdoor space here.
This is a homestay as the owners are on site. However, the bach is about nine metres away from the main homestead, so is separate and private. We love a chat but also respect the fact that guests often prefer their own space.
This is a peaceful neighbourhood on a 'no exit' road so has very little passing traffic. The property has a rural aspect and guests often comment on the tranquillity and accessibility to beach and town.
We love it when our guests enjoy the property and have a relaxing time. We also love it when they treat it with respect. We ask that guests leave the bach as they found it - clean and tidy - and appreciate that guests understand that this is a 'no party zone'! No smoking in or around the property please.
Sorry pet owners - your beloved furry friends will need a babysitter at home as we are a no pets property.
Please note the loft beds are high and accessed by ladder.
Our bach is treated regularly with repellent but our location means you may encounter bugs, including non-disease carrying native roaches.
Special conditions: Please be aware that this bach is relatively close to water - close supervision of children is highly recommended. Comfortably sleeps 4. Guests enjoy the river at their own risk (access to the river may not be possible at all times due to weather and garden conditions). Steep paths to river - fitness required. One night's deposit to book. A bond is required for most groups during special events (e.g. R&V). Deals on 7 (+) nights. Min of 4 nights over R & V, 2 nights over Labour Weekend.
Decent sized room with double bed and wardrobe. There is a high mezzanine bunk that is accessed via a ladder. The bunk sleeps one or two (little) people. Small children can use mattresses on floor.

Wonderful place in a great, scenic location. Had all the necessary facilities, whiteware and other amenities. The shower was a bit of a pain, but doesn't effect my overall satisfaction of staying at the property because there's an awesome bath! Thanks again, would love to stay again if I'm up that way in the future.
