We love spending time at the bach. You immediately step back from everyday busy life and feel relaxed and calm. The bach is small but functional. Have a BBQ on the covered deck or laze in beanbags on the lawn. The local four square sells wonderful freshly baked bread and enormous ice creams. Use the local tennis courts or take the children to Waitarere Domain for a play and fish and chips. The forest has lots of lovely walking tracks. Of course, the beach is the main attraction with a walk to the shipwreck of the Hydrabad a must do! There are games and small tv and dvd in case you strike some inclement weather. But our backyard covered deck is usually good even in rain to chill out with a coffee and read the paper. Please note there is no washing machine at the bach, however the local campground will allow you to use their machines and dryers (at cost) if you ask nicely! We do have a dishwasher. In winter heat the bach with a small fan heater then maintain heat with our oil filled heaters. We also require that you take rubbish and recycling with you when you leave. There is a rubbish/recycling depot at Levin if you wanted to drop rubbish there.

As the bach is small with two bedrooms and one toilet it is only suitable for a couple, two couples or a small family. Sorry no pets.

    Lovely quiet spot close to shop and beach, with a great sized garden. The bach is very well kitted out and we appreciated the abundant towels and nice bed linen. Nicely renovated with light and airy feel and clever decor touches. Ask a local to direct you to the secret playground in the forest! We had a lovely stay and would love to return.

  • Great location

    Great location. Cosy. Big fridge. No microwave- which is fine if you're prepared- and loads of crockery, cutlery and glasses.

  • Excellent place to stay, very well kitted out

    Excellent place to stay, very well kitted out. (I did want to give it 5 stars but the bunk bed definitely needs attention) Other than that - superb!

    Owner/manager responds:

    Hi, Thanks for your positive feedback. Just wondering what the problem with the bunk bed is? We haven't been for a while and there were quite a few bookings prior to you. Would appreciate you letting me know so I can remedy. Thanks!!

    Really neat and tidy property with a very spacious deck and back yard. Well stocked and linen provided was excellent. Stones throw from the beach and the Four Square shop and fish and chip shop.
