Your family holiday starts here.... Room for all the generations & outdoor entertainment for all ages.

The bach is fenced off from the main road at the front of the bach and provides plenty of parking for cars & boats. At the back of the bach, there is lots of fun to be had. There are swinging seats in the beer garden which sprawls round the pizza oven. So the adults can relax while the kids play right along side them in the tree hut, on the swings / slide or on the trampoline. Or have the generations compete for washing up duties with a volley ball game.

The rear of the property is framed by a charming creek where you can feed the pet eels with your food scraps. Over the bridge & a 1-2 minute walk will take you to the secluded Shelly Beach. If the tide is out, you can walk out to find pipi's & cockles and stop & check for crabs along the way. There are lots of caves to explore along the rocky edges of the bay.

A 10 minute walk/ 2 minute drive North will take you to Omaru Bay, a golden sandy beach with beautiful views, a boat ramp & ample parking for cars & trailers.

The bach is 5-10 minutes (drive) North of Coromandel town, so the cafe's & award winning restaurants are still close at hand, not to mention the arts & crafts in all the local shops & galleries, whilst still being able to return to the idillic setting of the bach.

The bach it's self is fully equipped with all the comforts of home, so if baking / cooking is your passion, potter away to your hearts content. There are also books a plenty to choose from to take into the beer garden & swing away the afternoon.

Special conditions: There is no cleaning carried out after your stay, so you must leave the bach in tip-top condition (as you found it) ready for the next guests.

    Perfect for a group! There were ten of us and the Bach accommodated us comfortably, with room for several more. We went here to celebrate my Dad's 80th Birthday, with family coming from Brisbane. It has everything you could need, including a well equipped kitchen, board games, books, a massive BBQ and loads of furniture. The outdoor areas were a dream! We experienced a hiccup with the water but Ruth was genuinely apologetic and more than accommodating. We would gladly stay again in the future.

    My favourite part was the amazing backyard - with pizza oven, swing seats, treehut, slide, swings, a stream and a bridge taking you almost directly to the beach, it kept our whole group (ages 1-40) entertained! Very spacious house, large tidy bedrooms and a very well-appointed kitchen. Great location near to lovely beaches - pity we got rain so couldn't enjoy that part fully, but we went to the nearby Water Works theme park instead, which was great fun. Would definitely love to return! :)
