Bach or holiday home | The Catlins | #34561
Jacks Bay is in the heart of the Catlins, and is 10 minutes drive from the main town of Owaka. It is an ideal location as a base for your exploring, or you can relax and stay in the bay itself, with a great walk to the Jacks Bay Blowhole, spotting the seals and penguins coming up on the beach, through to fishing and gathering Paua or Mussels. The beach is also ideal for swimming and body boarding with a gentle slope making it safe for young and old.
The house is the classic kiwi crib. Tidy and warm, with some quirky touches, everyone that goes to Wai Wuri falls in love with it.
The large main bedroom has one queen bed, and a set of bunks if needed. Lying in bed, you get the perfect view out over the beach. The bedroom also contains a second TV and a Playstation, letting the kids relax after a busy day, and allowing Mum and Dad to have some quiet time soaking in the sunset in the lounge or on the deck.
The second smaller bedroom has a bunk, with a double bed at the base, and a single at the top.
The shelves are stacked with books and games, as well as TV / DVD with freeview and a stack of DVD's, and a new wood fire will ensure if the weather turns bad, you will be cosy and entertained.
We have set this up as our ideal holiday home. We are sure you will love it as much as we do.

This was an excellent base for what we needed in the Catlins and you could tell this was a well-loved family crib. The actual property was a bit on the dusty side which set my allergies off but I whipped around with a damp cloth and sorted it pretty quickly.
This was a magical location. The beds were very comfortable and it was great to sit on the balcony and watch the sea. The accommodation is an old style batch and the rental matches this. If people want something more up market in terms of bathroom and kitchen facilities this may not be suitable, but then you may not achieve the remoteness and sea lions on you doorstep. We were happy.
beautiful location, quiet and peaceful, real old style kiwi crib/bach. Would be good to have a free shelf or two in kitchen for crib renters food storage.Covered outdoor area well utilised and protected from winds. Good base from which to explore the catlins. We will be back!
