This fabulous family bach is a comfortable 4 bedroom 2 bathroom house with a compact but well equipped kitchen and a laid-back, retro vibe.

The separate sleep-out is a basic garage conversion with a bathroom and equipment storage area downstairs, and six single beds upstairs. The stairs are relatively steep and the sleepout is an ideal retreat for older children and teens.

The bach has electric blankets for the queen and double beds, extra blankets and a woodburner for warm winter getaways too.

Bach has unlimited wifi. Cell phone coverage is excellent at the beach and patchy within the bach although ok for newer phones and in the northern upstairs bedroom.

Guests need to bring own towels and bed linen/kids' sleeping bags, however linen may be provided to overseas guests by arrangement. Duvets, kitchen cloths, teatowels, bathmats, laundry powder and some toilet paper are provided. Guests are also welcome to use pantry essentials. Should you eg get through all the teabags we appreciate your consideration in replacing them.

Waipu Cove is the place to be for a relaxed holiday. There are few baches available on the beach side of Cove Rd, but this is one of them. A safe 100m stroll to the beach through the DOC campground (stop and play on the playgrounds) or through the reserve. Extending kilometers to Whangarei Heads, the white sands of the surf beach are very safe for swimming and surfing.

Stroll to the iconic Waipu Cove dairy for an ice-cream or fish & chips, or to the Cove Cafe for Supreme coffee, bistro dining or a takeout pizza. Drive into nearby Waipu township for pizza and ribs at the famous Pizza Barn and pick up a coffee at The Container and potter through the antique stores and Black Barn design store. Meals at the Razza highly recommended! The caves and waterfall swimming hole are also a short drive, as is Uretiti beach which permits dogs off lead all day. Then head back to the bach for a bbq in the sheltered back garden.

  • Perfect spot and everything you need for a large group to stay

    Perfect spot and everything you need for a large group to stay. Sleep out was not as nice as the rest of the house however may have been because it was unused for a while prior to our arrival. We loved the location and needed nothing. Loads of space thank you!

    Great place to stay for a large group. The spa was an added bonus on a wet weekend.

  • I love this bach

    I love this bach. This is my second stay there and I would happily go back. It's spacious and homely, a very easy place to have a largish group. And the location is great - a few minutes walk to the beach. I would highly recommend Beauty on the Beach to anyone, and especially to families.
