Description

In the heart of South Bay - this is a great place to recharge the batteries.

One minute stroll down the reserve path adjacent to the harbour to see where the penguins are nesting or check out the fishing boats and whale/dolphin watching operations, potter round the rock pools or go for a swim.

Step out to the Peninsula walks, up to the views and back or take the challenge of the loop round the Peninsula, into town and back over the reserve walkway to South bay.

Launch your boat ahead of all the others first thing in the morning - parking inside for a 14' or plenty of room on the grass verge. Or snorkel at low tide - clean your catch in the sink/fish cleaning area outside.

Safe for all aged children - have the young children sleep inside the house, or set up the older children in the sleepout, safe but fun to be independent.

Penguins nest around the Coast Guard - if you have a dog, make sure its on leash in that area.

This is a 'bring your own linen' house. There is no cleaner so pls be prepared to leave the house clean and tidy for the next people. Note the house is waiting for its make over - we have now got our insurance payout after the earthquake, and hope to get tradies soon :)

If you notice any damage, or things not working let us know by email so we can get onto it.

Special conditions:

Smoking allowed outside only, please pick up buts.

Pets welcome too if sleep in their own beds/crates, own food bowls, please pick up any doggie doos, tx

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels). We want to give you a great review - so can you leave the property clean and tidy for the next renter?
