Bach or holiday home | Punakaiki | #23594
It doesn't get any better than this, built on solid rock just out of reach of the breaking surf and just a one minute walk to a white sandy beach... this iconic kiwi bach has braved the elements since the 1940s. Little has changed, the view is still breath-taking, the interior is still very 'bachy' - albeit with a few more modern conveniences. A trip to the loo is still a dash down the garden path although this is now a flush toilet. This is the great kiwi bach experience from yesteryear. With no neighbours looking in, you have total privacy... though you may have to share the rocky shore line with the occasional seal or penguin.

Like everyone who has visited, and written in the guest book, we were totally smitten by this cosy wee bach. Even the intrepid journeys to the toilet were fantastic. A little slice of history so lovingly presented and kept (thanks Maria and Daniel). Two perfect nights
