Great, homey accommodation with comfortable beds. We had a sick baby on the trip down and needed to wash his carseat cover and clothing. The washer was a great advantage. And the shub meant that he could have a bath. Even had little Easter eggs all around the living room. Great location; close to Mc Laren falls, but you can swim in the river right on Poripori Rd. Will definitely recommend and come back.
The bach is located between the beach and Hobbiton, which was perfect for us. We drove to the harbor for a dolphin watch (Dolphin Seafaris - GREAT experience!) one day, and to Hobbiton, the next. We basically just slept and ate breakfast at the bach, but it was cozy and comfortable. There was a hotplate, instead of a stove/oven in the kitchen, but that was fine for our morning porridge. We appreciated the thoughtful extras like milk and chocolates.
