Description

  • This unique location so close to the crashing surf will have you captivated!
  • Beautiful on a warm summer day - Even better during a wild winter storm.
  • Soak in a hot bath and watch the waves come rolling in and dolphins swim by.

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.

Free WIFI broadband. Bach telephone for local and incoming calls (no mobile coverage)

Located just 15 mins north of Punakaiki... or 30 mins south of Westport.

Westport is your nearest place to buy groceries and petrol - stock up before you arrive.

Winner of the Bookabach 2014 Gold Piwa Award for 'Best Setting"

Cleaning: Please do your dishes, place used linen and towels in the bath tub and we will do the rest. Linen included.

Free tea, coffee and pantry basics provided.

*There is a sofa bed to accommodate 1 extra guest (in same room as the bed) however the bach is more comfortable with two guests (see photos)

Help SAVE THE PENGUINS: A portion of every booking is donated to the West Coast Penguin Trust - $1,040 raised and donated so far. There is also a West Coast Penguin Trust donation box in the bach if you can spare any change for the Penguins - The penguins thank you! :-)

*If this bach is booked for the dates that you want... please see my other waterfront property 'Waihaha Bach' - located just 2 kms from Woodpecker Bay Bach.

Special conditions: The flush loo is outside (down a short garden path) At night use a torch (provided) This stunning location is DOC conservation land and therefore restrictions apply, PETS ARE PROHIBITED.

    Typical Kiwi Bach with everything that you need. Absolutely superb location providing a peaceful, quiet and totally private location. Add to this the most dramatic ever changing sea views. What more could you ask for.

    Beautifully presented, simple bach in a stunning location perched above the rocky beach and pounding surf. Access to the outside toilet in the night definitely needs a torch (thoughtfully provided).
