  • Great kiwi bach - awesome location

    Great kiwi bach - awesome location. We had a fantastic week there, and even with a couple of bad weather days there is still plenty to do and see. Great fishing, wonderful bird life, beautiful beaches.The bach is comfortable, private, good access and great views.

  • Such a gorgeous setting

    Such a gorgeous setting. Even in winter still so much to do and enjoy. We went pine cone hunting with the kids and stoked up the fire. Lovely and warm.

    The views are spectacular and you can hear the waves lapping at the door step. A quick walk to the little beach and the bigger beach and lots of places nearby to drive to. The bach is well equipped with lots of cooking equipment and things like a coffee plunger, and it has decks of cards, games and puzzles for those indoor rainy days! Fully fenced for dogs and children, would stay again in a heart beat. Thank you for sharing!
