Bach or holiday home | Greymouth | #30014
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.

The Bush Bach has an elevated position, in a quiet area, with very good views over the sea and the harbour from the house and from the private viewing platform Roger has set up. Clean and comfortable. People with reduced mobility may have difficulty climbing the steps from the car park to the front door.
We were disappointed in this property. We were probably mislead by the positive reports from others and the excellent experience from all other bookabach bookings where we have stayed. The location is good, but we found several problems with the property - mainly a lack of maintenance - which I listed to Roger privately. I am sure he will attend to these in due course.
Staying in the bush Bach capped off our West Coast stay delightfully. The house was furnished with all we needed for a quiet night to rest up. We were able to watch the sunset over Cobden from the viewing platform. The bush around was quiet and private, and the house was filled with warmth from the sunny day. Definitely a place to stay again, in winter or summer!
