The Brick House, Sunshine Bay is a classic kiwi bach, pack up the kids and come and play backyard cricket, explore the bush, hunt for catseye shells on the beach, or snuggle around the log burner in winter and play card games, or monopoly.

With the beach only metres from the deck you can sit back and relax while keeping an eye on the kids as they play on the beach or in the water.

Behind the house the regenerating native bush extends up the hill, with endless places to build huts, hunt for eels in the creek and explore, the family will be busy all day.

A stay in summer brings bright, long, hot days, while a stay in winter will often treat you to clear days with water as still as glass.

    The location of this property is amazing! The house has all the things you would require for entertaining a family for a week (or more). The beach is very safe and private- our two children spent most of the day fishing, swimming and playing on it. The décor of the house is a classic Kiwi bach and I am glad it has not been updated and modernised. We cannot fault it and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, hence the 5 star rating. We will be sure to visit again next time we are in NZ!

    This is such a great, classic NZ bach in a truly amazing location - the location is essentially a private beach with only 3 other houses in the bay, and the water laps literally right up to the deck. Amazing view from the lounge and deck out to the sounds, must be such fun in Summer! The house is easily big enough for a family or group stay - good kitchen, bathroom & comfortable bed. I highly reccomend this classic NZ bach in such a great location!! Thank you Claire for making it available

  • This is a fantastic bach in a wonderful location

    This is a fantastic bach in a wonderful location. We had a relaxing and peaceful stay. Our two boys found lots to occupy themselves outdoors. The bach was very comfortable and had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend it to others. Thank you Claire.
