  • We booked both baches and loved them both

    We booked both baches and loved them both. They are really well maintained and presented. Comfortable and clean. We will definitely be back as we love Kawhia and these baches are in a perfect spot to walk to wharf, town, Pohutukawa beach and front one has amazing views.

    We had a wonderful stay at Hutu cottage, and would happily recommend it to anyone who enjoys old fashioned bach-style holidays in a beautiful and very special location - Kawhia.

  • It was a charming, funky and clean retro style bach

    It was a charming, funky and clean retro style bach. Well equipped with everything we needed and within easy walking distance of the village. The lounge was comfy and there was good outside seating as well with a private deck and barbecue area. Comfort-wise, the beds were pretty much what you might expect at a family bach.
