Great location in the heart of all the action. South Piha is the popular beach at Piha. Keen surfer? Check the swell from the deck, for an instant surfing opportunity. Walk across the road directly onto the black iron sands.

This Bach is one of the original old holiday homes. Expect a classic 50s wooden bach with a killer location - not a fancy 5 star hotel! The activities in Piha are all outdoors or conducted sitting out on the deck anyway.

There are 2 bedrooms, bathroom, lounge, kitchen upstairs, two bedrooms & bathroom downstairs (great for teenagers, or extended family / friends) and a bunkhouse out the back. There is a BBQ available & deckchairs for soaking up the sun & views.

    Imagine this: Sitting in the dark on the deck listening to the crashing waves and watching million of stars in the sky while being caressed by the soft breeze with the saltiness of the ocean. This is the perfect house for that! Love the sun room, it's like sleeping outdoors in there. Just seconds away from the beach (killer location!), and there is an outdoor shower at the back which we find to be extremely useful. There is not enough words to describe how lovely and amazing this place is!

  • Not Five Star

    Not Five Star.......but amazing location right on the beach.....and everything you needed was provided. A true Kiwi Bach with lots of beds and lots of flat grass areas for kids to run. Highly recommended.
