Switch off your cell phones and recharge your batteries!

This sunny, architecturally-designed bach is a five-minute flat walk from spectacular Karekare beach. After a plunge in the surf, rinse off in the outdoor shower* and enjoy drinks on the deck in a private native bush setting. Or relax by the tranquil stream, surrounded by birdlife. Look up at the hills and plan your next day's bush walk or stroll down the road to the cascading Karekare waterfall.

This is a perfect location for just taking it easy. But it is also a fantastic spot for walkers. As well as being located just a stroll away from the Hillary Trail, there are walks in close proximity to suit most abilities.

Just 40 minutes from Auckland but a world away from the city. Piha is a convenient 10-minute drive over the hill if you want to enjoy a coffee or meal out or if you need to stock up on some basic groceries.

A bach not a beach house but with a welll-equipped kitchen, new bathroom and all you need to switch off for a short break or longer stay.

  • Another lovely stay in this beautiful bach

    Another lovely stay in this beautiful bach. This time on probably one of the coldest weekends of the year but the log burner kept us toasty warm and we were snug in bed.

    Jo was absolutely wonderful to deal with, very quick and lovely in response. We had an amazing time in the bach over a long weekend. With the fire going during a windy and rainy night it was very cosy and we felt satisfied with a glass of red wine and a good book on the couch. We found a lot of interesting good reads in their little library of books. Many thanks for your hospitality Jo! Niels & Esther
