  • 2 min walk to the beach and short walk (or bike ride) to the shops and cafes. On a quiet cul de sac
  • Nestled under Pohutukawa trees amnd pines it is a property with charm. Offers both sun and shade.
  • Built Xmas 2010 our bach is contemporary, fresh and well appointed. New outdoor shower is a hit!

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...

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.

  • Great location

    Great location. Just a short stroll to the beach. The property is well equiped & beautifully set out being both practical & relaxing. We enjoyed daily visits from a tui too! Id definitley come back. Waihi beach has a family friendly feel & has several cafes to enjoy. We highly recommend flat white cafe on shore road.

    Lovely place for a family group to stay even in winter. The log fire made it very cosy and comfortable.
