Bush Bach is tucked away up the hill in Cobden - the highest house.

It's nestled in to the Rapahoe scenic reserve, an area of stunning untouched bush, with mature forest including Nikau palms and Kiekie.

From the house are great views of the reserve and the surf at Cobden beach, a renown boardriding spot. There are great little viewing spots all over the section (1 hectare) which look directly over the Grey river and mouth, all the way down the west coast to Mts Cook and Tasman.

If you like to walk, run, or mountain bike, there is unlimited scope. 22 walks within a ten minute drive, including the stunning Point Elizabeth walkway and Coal Creek falls. The new West Coast cycleway from Greymouth to Hokitika starts just down the road!

If you want to drive a little further, there are gems within 40 minutes such as Punakaiki, Nelsons Creek, and Lake Brunner.

Greymouth itself has a lot of charm, once you know your way around. The fishing port, and the headlands on both sides of the Grey rivermouth are must sees. The Montieths brewery tour, with samples, is a cracker, and the cafes and bars are great fun.

The famous Transalpine railway is a short walk away, or a couple of minutes in a taxi.

Special conditions: There is a flight of steps up to the house from the parking area.

  • Lots of steep steps to get to the house

    Lots of steep steps to get to the house. Spectacular views though. Comfy spacious kitchen, lounge & dining space for 3 of us. Stayed only 1 night. Host lives in Christchurch.

    The house is in a lovely location up in the bush with great views. Big glass windows (double glazed), in the open plan living/dining/kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need. The bedrooms are warm, I can't fault the property :-)

    Ideal for two couples. An older cottage that has been fully modernised. Full bathroom adjoining main bedroom and second ensuite adjoining second bedroom. Fully equipped kitchen. Great library of books, videos and CDs. Fabulous sea and bush views. Both couples agree that we would return.
