Description

  • Kayak the Pororari River, it's stunning limestone cliffs will leave you spellbound.
  • Tramp into Cave Creek, watch the sun set and light your own fire at the beach.
  • Whitebaiting, fishing, horse riding, swimming, Pancake Rocks and Blowholes... Or just relax

This Bach is on a back section, it's large and very good for kids.

It has a huge sand pit, and an outside table that fits 18 people.

An easy 1 minute walk to the tavern; the meals are good pub food.

You can walk everywhere from this central location.

There is an outdoor fire where we have spent many a night watching the stars and having a quiet beer.

Punakaiki is the home of the famous Pancake Rocks. It's rivers are clean and very safe for swimming.

This is a real kiwi bach, currently being done up and is 90% of the way through, however, it is not by any stretch the work of a master tradesman and is still being renovated ( as all REAL kiwi batches are! )

The accommodation is warm, dry and has a homely feel.

New bathroom, good hot water pressure, a new oven, tidy kitchen, great open plan living space with a multifuel fire.

SPECIAL OFFER : $300 per week for stays of two months or more during the whitebait season - September & October

Special conditions: We expect you to treat our Bach like we do. It has our personal effects on the walls. Its a family Bach. Don't smoke inside. We prefer family's and kids are just so welcome. If you use anything from the pantry or fridge we expect you to replace it. When the kids have finished playing with the toys please put them under cover.

    Bach has a lovely welcoming feeling . We felt like we'd love to move in. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather & enjoyed breakfast on the sunny deck. Thanks to the owners.

    This was the second time we stayed at this bach, and we enjoyed it very much again. The bach is spacious and close to the beach, and provides enough space for a large family. The fire place kept us all cosy when it rained, and when we needed to warm up after a walk along the beach.
