This is a large family friendly bach perfect for the bigger group or two families plus! It is not 5 star but it's great for family memories! Being just a short walk to the beach and about 8 mins drive into Wanganui allows for all the needs of a perfect holiday. There's a pool table and television if that is what your holiday is about, room to play cricket or petanque on the back lawn, or simply read in the covered private barbecue area at the back. The beach has a great park for the kids to enjoy with a flying fox and many other great play ground equipment. Kai Iwi also has public facilities such as bbqs and public toilets. It is a safe place for the kids to swim and has life guards during the busy summer period. It has a stream that runs through which can be swum in and also crossed via a bridge. The house is right next to the camping ground which has a cafe open from 9-3 in the peak times and another playground that is safe for the kids to play in with the other camp kids, there's even a bowling club nearby!

  • Great location

    Great location. Excellent kiwiana character. Only other comment is that Even though it officially sleeps 10, the bach is better for a family. We fit 6 single guys in but used some of the couches.

    Location was great, but the property could do with a bit of TLC, there were light bulbs missing and the light switch in one of the bedrooms is loose and dangerous. roof leaked in the rain, and lots of dust and cobwebs. With a spring clean this batch could be awesome.

  • Real kiwiana Bach, my family loved it

    Real kiwiana Bach, my family loved it. Plenty of room for 6 adults and 5 children under 7. First visit to Kai Iwi, we enjoyed it.
