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. Please contact me if you would like to hire linen, the fee system on HomeAway doesn't currently support per person rates.

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.

**Smoking allowed outside only

**No tents or caravans. No camping.

  • 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
