    Kaka Cottage is in an absolutely beautiful location overlooking the gorgeous Little Bay and is a fantastic bach (although calling it a bach feels a little disrespectful to the clever, environmentally friendly technology that it has to keep it off the grid). It's beautifully set up and perfect for a getaway with some good friends. Our only disappointment was that we didn't stay for longer!

  • Absolutely perfect get-away

    Absolutely perfect get-away. Beautiful view, gorgeous interior, close to a lovely beach and far away from any commotion. We loved it.

  • Lovely house and beautiful views from the deck

    Lovely house and beautiful views from the deck. Kitchen is very well equipped - just be aware 'off the grid' means no microwave (and no hairdryer). Not that this was a problem! Great to have worms to feed our kitchen scraps to... Gorgeous beaches nearby. We heard kiwis calling near the house a few times, a very special experience.

  • Absolutely stunning view from the most amazing back deck I've ever seen

    Absolutely stunning view from the most amazing back deck I've ever seen. My family absolutely loved it. It was extremely eye-opening and cool to stay in a home that was purely run by solar power and collected rain water. Hoping to be able to stay again in the future!
