Bach 35 is located in one of the first holiday home communities in the Far North. Seaview Road in Cable Bay was as popular in the early 1950s as it is today. It features an "L" shape with a steady incline. Almost every property is both close to the coastline and enjoys a grandstand view of the entire Bay. Bach 35 is no exception.

Originally constructed in the late 50s the bach has undergone some key modernisation improvements. The owners wished to retain the traditional Kiwi bach charm whilst making more of the holiday lifestyle potential the property offered.

A single door onto a narrow deck was replaced with sliding bifold doors. When open, the northern wall of the lounge becomes a giant moving picture of Doubtless Bay. The narrow deck was pushed out to 3 metres wide and a balustrade of part wall (privacy) and part glass installed. With fingers crossed, the old linoleum flooring was lifted. Beneath the sheets of period newspaper was an untouched wide-board Rimu floor. Sanded, polished and sealed, it has come up a treat.

Cable Bay is the perfect location for a Far North family holiday. Along the coastline old Pohutukawa trees lean out over the safe swimming beach offering all day shade. One shady beach spot is beside the Council maintained child's playground, just at the end of Seaview Road. Rocky points have 100s of rock-pools ripe for exploring. Land-based fishermen regularly catch Snapper and Kahawai from these easily accessed points. At full tide the lagoon offers beginner snorkelers an ideal opportunity. Lots to see but never so deep that kids can't stand on the bottom and catch their breath.

My reaction when I first stepped up onto the deck was one the owner had heard many times. Sparkling Doubtless Bay drew an unprompted "Wow". There's a sheltered BBQing spot on the deck...the sun sets on the left-hand side of the view...Bay changes colour as the sun sinks...all the ingredients to create holiday memories that will stay with you forever.

  • We had a great stay at this property

    We had a great stay at this property. Beautiful views over a Cable Bay and close to playground and beach. The house is basic but all you need for a holiday there and clean. The deck secures which makes it safe for babies and toddlers

    We had a wonderful 5 night stay at this property, the views off the deck are amazing & we spent most evenings soaking in the sun. David was extremely knowledgeable about the area & very friendly & helpful to make our stay enjoyable. Overall great spot with a great beach down the road & we would love to go back!

    Unbeatable views! Stayed in winter but I could imagine that sitting on the deck in summer would be magical. Had everything we needed. Comfortable, clean and relaxing.
