Description

  • A cute kiwi bach kept clean and authentic in a unique landscape.
  • You will be woken by the dawn chorus of tui and korimako.
  • A perfect stepping stone to beautiful and iconic New Zealand attractions such as Wharariki beach.

The bach is nestled among mature totara trees and is home to many native birds. It has a lovely open garden and an extensive view across the estuary which will fill up during spring high tides. It is only a 30 second walk across the other side of the road to a very safe swimming beach.

There are two kayaks to use and the garden and estuary are interesting safe places for children to play while parents sit and relax on the deck.

The living area is open and cosy with an efficient wood burner to keep the house warm in the winter months. There are two good sized bedrooms that look across the estuary and are both light and well insulated; the larger bedroom has double glazing. A new bathroom has been recently added to the bach and the living room extended.

It is a great place to escape and relax and offers long beach walks where you can observe the many wading birds, collect shellfish or just beach fossick. There are many beautiful natural locations nearby to visit by car including Wharariki beach which is only a 20 minute drive. Whatever you choose to do you will come home feeling better for taking the time to stay here.

Special conditions: The house is very suitable for couples or a small family. The deck is less than a meter high and has not got railings, therefore would not be suitable for a toddler or baby without supervision. During the peak summer season a minimum booking for 4 nights is required.

  • Everything I would want in a batch

    Everything I would want in a batch...cosy and quaint but with really nice touches of Kiwiana and quality furniture and beds. Nice and private surrounded by bush and birdsong with views through to estuary. Great location. Check the tide tables and book for high tides over 3.6m if you want to use kayaks from house tho!
