Your own slice of paradise!

This is a lovely, relaxing property situated in Taieri Mouth which is 30mins from Dunedin city.

This property is perfectly situated to enjoy all day sun, and fabulous beach /ocean views.

This property is a modern interpretation of the New Zealand bach.

The ground floor is comprised of an open-plan living area, laundry, storage, shower and bathroom. The ground floor opens out to deck and flat grassed area. A mezzanine level with a large skylights accommodates two large bedrooms.

Tairei Mouth is a lovely quiet seaside fishing community. The area remains largely unspoiled by development.

"Perched on a sand dune thirty minutes from Dunedin, surrounded by DIY fishing shacks, this structure takes the kiwi bach to a new level. It’s simple gabled form and natural materials are honest, simple and robust – it’s rawness is it’s charm. Sustainability is unquestioned – there was no waste in the design, construction or build time. This bach is at once stimulating and restful. An uplifting living space – the least expensive property we viewed – but one of the most inspiring. Like a haiku!"

  • Location five minutes walk through dunes and 12 minute walk to end...

    Location five minutes walk through dunes and 12 minute walk to end of beach to rocks at south. Weather was windy and rainy for a nearly all of a 16-day stay. No sports, few channels on TV. Fortunately only 20 minutes drive to Dunedin and its several excellent used book stores. Read 15 books in 16 days after buying reading lamps at Mitre store in Dunedin (no reading lamps in house). No provision for hanging clothes, no iron, no blinds on windows. Shower temp control unpredictablea.
