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.

Wifi (unlimited data) included

Large fridge, separate freezer, full size oven, plus microwave & TV with DVD & freeview.

    The Dunes was a typical Kiwi Bach, and as such was delightfully rustic and comfortable. It's position, immediately opposite the main swimming beach meant great wave watch and sunsets. The out side shower ( not the main shower) is a must try winner. Great stay experience.

    Great for teenagers get together. Lots of things to do around and in house. And lots of rooms to choose from

  • The Bach is directly opposite Sth Piha beach

    The Bach is directly opposite Sth Piha beach. A wonderful view. The big grassy frony yard was an added bonus for the children. The bach is definitely in the 50's but was clean, has Wifi, the beds were comfortable and the position amazing. I would probably change the light bulb in the kitchen to a brighter one as the kitchen is small and does not get a lot of natural light. A most enjoyable stay
