  • Superb Bach

    Superb Bach. Amazing space for a get together with family and friends. Bit of a 'Grand Design' eco stay (completely off-grid and so well thought through that it felt completely easy), with lots of attention to light, warmth and coolness, stunning views and comfort. We enjoyed every moment here in this out of the way location. Little Bay is amazing, as is Otautu Bay on the East coast. Be prepared for some bumpy (but fun!) gravel roads. Loved it here, can't recommend too highly.
