Our bach is fun, funky and relaxing to be in. Bi-folding doors open onto a good sized deck creating lovely indoor/outdoor flow. The large barbeque and outdoor table (on wheels) and chairs can easily be set up on the covered deck or private grassed area as desired. From 2015 the bach is also home to Art Break Waihi taking bookings throughout the year.

Although it offers room for one or two families, couples will enjoy the bach's attention to detail (a continuing work in progress) and its ability to comfortably sleep three couples who can enjoy their own privacy. A second toilet and fabulous outdoor shower can be accessed from the outside - handy for those sleeping in the beach hut, coming off the beach or just in nearby rooms.

The split king bed in the blue room can be zipped together or serve as 2 single beds as preferred. All the beds are comfortable and most are new with good quality bedding. Three of the rooms have ranch sliders opening out onto the grassed area and louvres allowing both independent access when the place is unlocked and plenty of ventilation on those hot summer days and nights.

Offering both sun and shade the bach is nestled between pohutakawa trees and pines in a quiet cul de sac and is very private. Having no TV ensures games are played, books are read...There are many games available as well as 'beach toys' and essentials (see separate photo), 3 push bikes and 2 sit-on kayaks.

Despite there being no microwave or dishwasher, the kitchen is well equipped for the culinary-inclined.

The 'hi-fi' unit is a Tivoli radio with speaker for an iPod/cell phone with bluetooth.

Waihi Beach is a gem for its beauty, its walks, surf and trendy boutique shops, cafes and eateries. the gateway to the Hauraki rail trail and the Karangahake Gorge where you can take a train ride, enjoy the walks and swimming holes or discover the out of the way art and craft outlets. Athenree hot pools are 5 minutes away by car or a paddle across the harbour. Tauranga is 40 minutes away by car.

Special conditions:

Families and couples.

Unsuitable for parties as is in a quiet cul de sac.

Unsafe for toddlers or little children as property is not fully fenced.

Be mindful there is no TV, no dishwasher or microwave.

    The bach comfortably accommodates two families and there are so many neat / thoughtful features to make you feel relaxed and at home. The older kids in our group loved sleeping in the beach hut and we all enjoyed the outdoor shower. Excellent selection of magazines and games. Thank you Naomi for sharing your wonderful home !

  • This Bach was fabulous for our mid winter get away

    This Bach was fabulous for our mid winter get away. No tv was a shock to our teenagers but there was a lot of family time by the wood burner and lots of book reading. Great set up and loved the artworks.

  • Loved this place!!! I highly recommend it

    Loved this place!!! I highly recommend it. Three bedrooms inside the house sleeps 2 in each and an outside cabin which contained a double bedroom and 2 single bedroom. The house was efficiently warmed by a wood fire burner which had stacks of firewood on hand and already chopped up and the cabin beds had electric blankets and oil heater to keep the Winter chills at bay. The kitchen was fully equipped and towels, pillow slips and blankets were supplied free of charge. Bed linen could be hired at an extra cost.The beach is just across the road and the main township is a 10 minute walk. We all loved this house and are already contemplating on staying there again next year. Thank you Naomi.
