  • One street away from the estuary (400m to walk)
  • Short walk to the beach
  • Quiet location, comfortable house

Tui’s Rest is a comfortable and affordable bach. We are in a quiet location only one street away from the estuary (400m), and a short walk to the beach. We are also only a short walk to the golf course and the Estuary Store/takeaways.

Popular with young families, our yard is private and fully fenced, with plenty of room for the kids to play. We have a gas BBQ and outdoor setting on the large deck.

The TV has freeview, a dvd player, and avi player. We have a good collection of books, games, toys, blocks, and puzzles. We have a kayak, kick scooter, and a beach cruiser bike for renter use.

We have a great heating system to keep you toasty in the winter, in both the house and sleep-out. We find the beds comfortable, and have a new master bed in 2015 three new single mattresses in 2014.

Dolce Gusto Coffee pod maker available. BYO pods.

This is a comfortable family bach. If you are expecting hotel quality please book elsewhere. I have a property manager who responds promptly to any issues you may have, but this is not the same as staff on site. The bach has 2 bedrooms inside, plus the sleep-out. The house and sleep-out are insulated and in good condition. All beds have duvets and pillows.

WHAT TO BRING: The bach is self-catering with regards to linen. Bring your own sheets, pillow cases, towels, hand towels, and tea towels. There is a washing machine and dryer.

Linen hire can be provided by my property manager for $15 per person which includes: Sheets, pillow slips, bath towels, bath mat, hand towels, beach towels and tea towels. Sorry, I will not ask her to provide this for free.

If you are bringing your dog there is a $25 cleaning fee. My property manager uses her industrial vacuum to eliminate pet hair. This small fee is a very reasonable request for bringing your dog.

PARKING: There is off-street parking for two vehicles in the driveway. There's plenty on-street parking also.

Special conditions: ** DOGS: On negotiation only. Our property manager uses her industrial vacuum to remove pet hair after your visit so a $25 extra cleaning charge applies. Please let me know how many dogs you want to bring. Please remove your dogs deposits so the yard is clean for the next family. **Families preferred, no parties, no groups of young singles. **Smoking allowed outside only **No tents or caravans. No camping.

  • Cute little place in a nice, quiet location

    Cute little place in a nice, quiet location. Loved the artwork around the house. We really enjoyed our stay.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Tuis Rest

    We had a wonderful stay at Tuis Rest. Well equipped bach with comfy beds and a lovely walk to the Estuary and beach. The location was very quiet and peaceful and the fully fenced section was great for our dog. The sleepout was also a wonderful bonus that allowed everyone their own space which was great. Would highly recommend this bach. Thanks so much

  • Nice little Bach

    Nice little Bach. A bit dated and we felt that it needed a bit of a clean (cleaners arrived at same time we checked in so our fault really). A bit of a walk to the beach so we drove down. Property was marketed as suitable for dogs as fully fenced - problem was rear wire fence was not sufficient to stop dog escaping and then roaming into the property at the back (where there are two pit bull like dogs..) The Bach has everything you need and is great value for money.

    Owner/manager responds:

    This renter moved in four hours too early despite being told check-in time on all documents. My place is always clean, but obviously people need to give the cleaners a chance to do their work. This feedback about the house being unclean is very unfair!!! The property behind is a rental, its not fair to state that pitbulls live there. My place is fairly marketed, photos are correct representation.

    Beautiful and quiet setting for this Bach which was kitted-out with all that is needed for a fun time at the beach. Highly recommend this Bach and look forward to staying here again in the future.
