Bach or holiday home | Pakawau Beach | #19236
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.

Wonderful location on a spit straddling a beach and estuary. So quiet and cosy with lots of Tui, native wood pigeon and fantails. Log fire was great for a winter stay and location is great if you want to get away from it all. We enjoyed the peace, local walks, dinner at The Mussel Inn, the lack of WiFi and TV and the Paul Simon CD. Thanks, we had a lovely and well needed break. Will definitely come back.
This a wonderful place to stay, just like home, warm and relaxed. The view onto the estuary is a delight and with the beach a few metres away and countless fascinating places, including Farewell Spit an easy drive away the location is ideal. Bird watchers delight and a great beach to walk with Old School cafe, in an old school building,to pop into nearby.
