Absolute beachfront, this is the ultimate 60s Kiwi bach with breathtaking views direct over the beach to Kapiti. The front wall is all glass and frames Kapiti Island. The bach is close to Waimeha Stream and a short walk along the beach to the cafes, tennis court or local shops. This is a beautiful and funky spot. Ideal for couples or a small family, this is an intimate and relaxing hideaway perfect to recharge your batteries. In the winter you may choose to sleep by the open fire (lots of dry firewood) and wake up to the view of Kapiti. This bach was featured n Home and Entertaining Nov 2006). Please note access to bedroom 2 (with bunks) is via bedroom 1 (queen bed). This is an architectural 60s building and special.

  • This is such a special place

    This is such a special place. Stunning views of Kapiti Island and great access to the beach. We loved the fact it was completely classic, no frills, and no tv! We enjoyed every minute reading, playing games, drawing in between walks on the beach in sun and rain. We hope to be back!

  • This is a 5 star location with wonderful views to soak in

    This is a 5 star location with wonderful views to soak in. The bach itself is older, and left to its own devises is quick to collect cobwebs, but I did a quick whip around with the vacuum when I arrived then settled in to enjoy. Its easy and non fussy, with a lovely light and warm feel. The facilities all work well and are all that's needed for a kick back holiday, just don't expect modern pristine. Thanks Camilla for your kindness in letting me use this place, its a little haven!
