This private Bach is North facing and offers a very sunny aspect and relaxed atmosphere. Located at the end of a drive way, its quiet and close to the forest and beach, providing a beautiful retreat from the city life.

It sleeps 7 but could accommodate a few more with plenty of extra room outside for tents. Settled away from the road, amongst beautiful bush like setting and sea views is Koru 5 Bach, for everyone to enjoy, it has a lovely sunny aspect, with decking and plenty of things for the kids to do! trampoline, swing ball or just simple kicking a ball. Enjoy the avocados in season and the beautiful fresh air surrounding. Great indoor and outdoor flow, plenty of parking and room for tents if needed for extended families. Big lawn space.

The beach offers safe swimming between the flags during patrolled periods or head to the estuary, a favourite spot for families with smaller children and for kayakers. Watch the kite surfers if the wind is just right, or get away from it all and unwind with a long walk along the beach. A photographers paradise. Birdwatchers will enjoy the estuary which is a haven for native birds.

Other activities nearby include surf fishing, walks, golf, diving and fishing boat charters. Marsden Point marina is 10 minutes away for boat launching or watching the activity over a cup of coffee or a meal. Just approximately 1.5 hours from Auckland and 10 minutes to Waipu. A supermarket and shops are few minutes drive away or stroll to the local dairy for an ice cream or newspaper or stop in a for a coffee at the café just across from the beach.

  • Lovely family bach

    Lovely family bach. Very comfortable and homely. Kids happy on the trampoline, dad happy watching T.V and mum happy reading a Jodie Piccoult novel from the bookshelf! Handy to explore the local area. Very quiet and peaceful.

  • What a lovely bach ! A home away from home

    What a lovely bach ! A home away from home. Had all the facilities needed. Value for money, excellent location, loved the wee Christmas tree and decorations made our Christmas holiday that extra special. Owners were excellent and very friendly also excellent to communicate with. Absolutely loved my time at Koru 5 would have loved to stay longer for New Year (My Birthday) but was already booked. Will love to come back sometime soon.
