  • The bach is very well set up

    The bach is very well set up. Everything is in working order and we had everything we needed to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The place was very clean when we arrived also. We very quickly felt at home and had a really great stay.

  • The location and view from this property was incredible

    The location and view from this property was incredible. There was lots of space in the communal areas of the house and the parking was nice and easy.

    This is a great family bach, warm and comfortable, and very well equipped. Plenty of outdoor activities to do, walks along to neighbouring bays, kayaking. We enjoyed the games cupboard when it rained. Would definitely recommend.

    Such a hidden gem! If I could turn back time I would have booked it for 3 weeks. Had everything we could possibly need - games and books for the kids, balcony with beautiful view, boogie boards, kayaks, a jaffle iron (very important!), and a beautiful little bay to ourselves (pretty much) to boot. I know where to book next time we come to New Zealand.
