  • Property is laid back

    Property is laid back. Walk to beach via the lawn. See the beach from backyard furniture. Everything available in kitchen and bathroom. Sandy Bay has well known surf beach. And up the road is a fantastic beach - Whale Bay - worth walking to, even in cold weather.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Lovely beach. Property was very clean and tidy. Like a traditional bach, nicely equipped and comfortable. Lovely view from picnic table, but view of beach from living area is blocked by owner's house and garden within 10m of bach. Resident owners were pleasant.

  • The location is beautiful

    The location is beautiful. Amenities are simple traditional NZ Bach which is what we wanted. Bad weather didn't seem to diminish our enjoyment. Added bonus of fresh herbs and arugula in the garden was appreciated very much. Beds comfy, cooking and bathroom amenities worked well. We did have a bit of trouble working out the gas oven function...... but got there in the end.
