Powered by solar and a gas calafont, the Pinui bach gives you the comforts of home from the Kaipara back country.

There is a generous lawn area for the kids to stretch their legs and an undercover awning that comfortably shelters 10 socialising adults.

The firewood is always well stocked up so the outdoor brazier can burn long into the night.

A fitted bed sheet, pillow and pillow slip will be provided. Please be aware that you will have to bring a towel and a sleeping bag or duvet.

Advertised price is for 2 adults.

Extra person $25/night.

Your hosts Steve and Clare are only too happy to help with anything and are always in contact with our guests via a radio in the bach.

Steve manages the farm you will be staying on and is always keen to answer any questions about the 500-hectare sheep and beef property.

  • I'm not sure where to start

    I'm not sure where to start. This property is literally a little slice of heaven. Beautiful and relaxing and perfect for any occasion. There were 10 of us staying and we are still literally on cloud 9 from our stay. Every one of us has already talked about returning with our family, friends and significant others. It is that good. A hidden little gem. There weren't enough stars. Honestly couldn't rave about it or recommend it enough
