  • Short drive to shops, cafe's, restaurants, golf course.
  • Other surf beaches easy driving distances. Explore the East Coast area.

'Camerlot' is your Classic Kiwi Bach, which has been in the family for 50 years. Plenty of space for kids to run about and parking for the boat or other water toys. Decks at the front and rear for enjoying all day sun. The building may be old but it is comfortable. The second outside hot shower is a great experience at night under the stars. Park the car up for your holiday and walk to the beaches and estuary. Bring the boat, golf clubs or just your swim suit.

Being an older bach the property has its quirks! We like to think of them as adding character to your stay and they shouldn't affect your enjoyment of the property but the odd door is wonky and can be hard to open/close and in the living area the floor is a bit uneven in places where the foundations have sunk a bit - the old girl isn't as glam as she was in her hey day but she's still the life of the party!

  • Excellent location for walking to the surf beach and very tidy inside...

    Excellent location for walking to the surf beach and very tidy inside and out. A classic kiwi bach with plenty of board games for the wet days.

  • Excellent for extended family with 3 preschoolers

    Excellent for extended family with 3 preschoolers. Great location with that kiwi bach feeling. Although front lawn is close to the road. Would bring a fan next time in hot balmy weather.

  • Great location, easy walk to either Surf beach or Estuary

    Great location, easy walk to either Surf beach or Estuary. Good old fashioned Kiwi Bach and room for the kids to run around outside as well.

  • Great location, walking distance to both surf and estuary beaches

    Great location, walking distance to both surf and estuary beaches. Large lawns both front and back with outdoor furniture makes this a perfect summer bach with outdoor living options for all times of day. It's on the rustic side in design but has lots of character, and suits those wanting a classic Kiwi experience rather than all the mod cons. A coffee plunger would have been nice though.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for letting me know about the coffee plunger!. Previous tenants hadn't told me it was broken and no longer there. Have rectified that now!
