  • Direct access to the beach track

This little gem is hidden on the hillside overlooking the beach and Taylors Mistake Bay. Plenty of beach time action to watch from the privacy and quiet of the front deck and lawn area but if you need a swim the path from the front garden leads you down to the safe surf beach. The classic cottage comes with off street parking but there are 60 steps down to the bach. The property is only suitable for those who are capable of stairs, however the access means you are totally private and away from the world. A perfect place to unwind and recharge! If you love coastal scenes, wonderful walking tracks, uninterrupted views, the noise of rolling surf this is the place for you!

Special conditions: Please note the stairs leading to the house are steep and may not be suitable for anyone who has difficulty walking down or up a steep grade.

    This bach is in a beautiful location with fantastic views from both inside and out. We found it to be well equipped and warm. There is a tiered garden which has a direct path to the beach. Yes there are 60 steps to get to it and yes it's rustic, but it's also idyllic and we will certainly stay there again if we have the opportunity.

  • Great location

    Great location. Rickety deck that urgently needs boards and railings on steps near house need replacing as they could easily be a safety hazard. Not suitable for people needing assistance with mobility due to the steepness and number of steps up/down.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for the feedback Jason. I totally agree that the deck needs some work. The owners live abroad but are planning on getting work done on their next visit. I hope my listing description explains the stair access and I always try to reiterate this to guest enquiries. It's certainly not a place for the unfit or elderly!

  • Lovely views and unparalleled privacy

    Lovely views and unparalleled privacy. The house is a bit old but that's part of its charm. Would be better if the hedges next to the steps were trimmed back a bit to make going up or down less scratchy on the arms. Still quite a lovely place.

  • We loved staying here and will definitely return

    We loved staying here and will definitely return. We loved the rustic feel; it's definitely a typical kiwi bach :)

    If you like the simple things this is a great place to stay. Awesome location and very private. A good tidy up outside would do wonders and BBQ wasn't really useable.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks Andy glad you enjoyed the cottage its a pretty cool outlook. I have just today arranged the gardener to get back over there there has been a lot of rain and wind since his last visit and I agree the garden could do with a tidy up. We don't advertise the property as having a BBQ but guess you found one out the back that must be an old one of the owners. It would be a good addition to the rental though I'll mention it to the owners. Thanks for the feedback. cheers Clare
