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!"

  • This house is a gem

    This house is a gem. Modern, stylish, well equipped, the hosts were generous with their stocks of food, drink and Netflix account. Only thing I would say is that it is suitable for families, very close friends or two single people as access to the second bedroom is through the master bedroom. A screen/curtain/partial wall could provide more privacy but that would mess with the design a bit. We would very much like to return to this house and really enjoyed our interactions with Tania.
