A classic Kiwi bach with sensational views from both house and garden. Completely private, beautiful, mature subtropical garden extending right to the sea, with bush reserve on one side. A path winds through the garden to the sea and the garden is for your exclusive use and is not shared by another dwelling. Enjoy the company of the Tuis then watch the sun set into the sea. The section and house face directly north for maximum sun and are completely protected from westerly winds by a flank of Mount Karioi. There is a flat lawn area for outdoor living. Get out of the world famous Whale Bay surf and it’s only a minute’s walk to the bach and a hot shower.

The sound of the sea at night is helpful for people with sleeping problems.

The bach is small, open plan, and has one king and one single bed upstairs. There is a very small bedroom downstairs with a camp stretcher. Bring your own sleeping bag and pillow for this.

Special conditions: Smoking outside only. No cellphone coverage from bach, but you can get it 100 metres down the road.

    Idyllic location for privacy, views, sun and a nostalgic experience of the Kiwi bach of yesteryear.

  • A very kiwi bach, definitely loved the history of the house

    A very kiwi bach, definitely loved the history of the house. Our fur baby had a fabulous time. My 11 year old was not happy to have no internet connection but realized later the importance of our family bonding :-) Glad we can do what we like best (tramping) and just enjoy nature at it's best.

  • Love the views, perfect little kiwi bach

    Love the views, perfect little kiwi bach. My only constructive feedback would be to put in solar lights down the outside stairs as the lower level of the bach can only be accessed by going outside and that's where the toilet is. I would happily stay there again.
