  • Relax in this comfortable fully fenced beach home.
  • Enjoy walks along the beach just seconds from the door.
  • Take the walking track up to the village at Diamond Harbour where you have a choice of 2 cafes.

Wattle Grove has an open plan living area with log burner and 3 bedrooms. There is a fully fenced garden area and a deck with BBQ where you can relax, enjoy views of the sea and hills beyond and listen to the water lapping on the beach and the sound of the oyster catchers.

Enjoy spending time by the beach relaxing, beach combing, walking or cycling, or venture out and catch the ferry from Diamond Harbour (2km away) and explore the shops, cafes and restaurants of the historic port of Lyttelton. Camp Bay is a short drive further around the bay where you can enjoy another beautiful beach, or take a drive over the hill to Port Levy where "Z for Zachariah" was filmed. If you fancy a game of golf Charteris Bay, a 10 minute drive away, offers a 9 hole golf course, or take one of the many scenic walks available at Orton Bradley Park. Orton Bradley has a wonderful new cafe serving delicious locally grown foods open during the summer season, you can also purchase organic raw milk straight from the cow, during the milking season, at Orton Bradley Park. There is a new, well stocked 'On The Spot' small supermarket in Diamond Harbour if you have forgotten anything.

    Was a divine place to be for a few days, wish it could've been longer. Nice Bach, perfect for one baby and a child (plus Mum and Dad). Thanks a lot!

  • Beautiful place

    Beautiful place. I have stayed at lots of baches and this one was one of the best. Loved the cozy feel. It was very well set up with everything you needed. Thanks for sharing this gem with others. Sarah, Marc and Tracey

    Great house, as described, in a cracking location. Swing park and beach very close. No shops nearby bring what you need.
