  • Round the corner to the beach. 100 metre walk and no roads to cross.
  • Deck, deck, deck. And teenagers delight (separate rooms and facilites upstairs and downstairs)
  • Wheelchair access to the upstairs deck and bach area

We reckon our bach is in the best spot in Whangamata. Halfway between the surfclub and Hauturu ('Clark') Island, it's only 100 metres to beach access 10.

It's on the beach side of Ocean Road, so the kids don't even need to cross the road to get to the beach. Great if you have littlies. A stroll through the park takes you to the surfclub, while strolling south takes you to the estuary end of the beach.

I won't talk it up - it's a 'classic' old school bach - which means it's old. The floor slopes away in a couple of places, and the downstairs is no Sistene Chapel, but the location is just so good. It's two storied, with decks around three of the four sides of the upstairs. Its even got a wheechair access ramp to the upstairs deck (which doubles as a good bike downhill for the kids). Have breakfast in the morning sun on the eastern deck, and then have a beer/wine, sunbathe (in privacy) or just people watch on Ocean Road in the sun on the western deck in the afternoon.

If you've got teenagers, or a fishing mate who snores badly, have them stay downstairs (one very large bedroom and one smaller one, with separate toilet and shower facilities downstairs), while you stay upstairs in peace. [Please note the downstairs rooms cannot be accessed from the inside upstairs. You have to go down the outside stairs and through the outside door. Also, to get to the downstairs toilet from the large downstairs bedroom, you have to go outside and around the corner].

The section is fully fenced if you have young ones - and goes great with the ramp for them to get up and down by themselves. Let them run loose with the gates shut, up and down. Plus there's still enough room to swing the english willow in the evening (while the crowd watches on from the overlooking 'pavilion').

All in all, it's a true old school kiwi 'bach' for summer as it should be.

    This bach is in a fabulous location and was perfect for our 4 night stay with teenagers. It is very clean and comfortable and there is plenty of space in the living and sleeping areas.

    Batch was the tidiest i've rented on bookabach to date and was well equipped with everything we needed. Very short walk to beach - pity we had to leave and come back home to reality. Thanks for letting us stay.
