  • We like the location and it has all the facilities we need...

    We like the location and it has all the facilities we need to enjoy our holiday. Having the sea at your front door twice a day is great for swimming and with the tide out there is plenty of space to get out and walk.

  • Beautiful spot in GOlden Bay - fantastic location right on the beachfront

    Beautiful spot in GOlden Bay - fantastic location right on the beachfront. The bach itself was well equipped and felt like a traditional kiwi bach.. This was our second stay and we bought Kayaks with us - its a great place to kayak especially with children. Great base to explore the area especially the northern part of golden bay

  • This was a great family bach to stay in

    This was a great family bach to stay in...fabulous view and lovely to be able to get straight onto the beach. We stayed when the weather was wet and cold at times, but the oil heater was definitely enough to keep the bach warm. We would love to come back next time with a set net for the fish
