Port Waikato is a very small remote part of NZ which makes it so special. 2mins walk across the road is the mighty waikato river where you can take your boat, jet ski or go fishing. If you have a 4WD you can drive along the beach and the sand dunes which is great fun! . Port Waikato is renowned as a great place to surf and has unique black sand. Its never terribly busy which is great!Some of the most stunning and magical sunsets occur here. Everyone is really friendly and its very safe, peaceful and quiet.

IMPORTANT! READ ALL INFO!

THIS IS AN OLD SKOOL BACH!! If you are looking for a flash and modern place this is not for you. It is rough around the edges but we feel adds to its charm. It will be clean and tidy inside but it has a bit of clutter outside in areas you wont be using. This is reflected in the price.

We have a shower and basin inside the property WE DO NOT HAVE A TOILET INSIDE.. We do however have a very cool long drop approx 15mtrs from the property. We have decorated it to look and feel like a normal toilet only difference is its outside and you don't flush! (see pic) We do however have a camping toilet inside for children and females, number 1's only which is just like using a normal toilet :)

We are on TANK WATER which means we collect rain water to fill up the tank. It is fine to wash dishes and shower in but DO NOT DRINK IT! We will have drinking water provided for you.

We provide pillows and Duvaes for each bed, please supply your own linen and towels. We can supply this at a charge on request.

We do live here full time so there may be a chance we are here when you stay but can keep interaction to a minimum, or on request can vacate, we will be in the outside sleepout room. Matrix the dog also stays out back but is friendly as! He loves to hang out with people if they are dog lovers otherwise he is tied up away from you.

Special conditions: Bach is quoted for 4 people $20pp after per person per night :) We do live here full time so there may be a chance we are here when you stay but can keep interaction to a minimum, we will be in the outside sleepout room. On request we may be able to vacate for your stay. Matrix the dog also stays out back but is very friendly and loves to hang out with people if they are dog lovers otherwise he is tied up. * Pets allowed with prior approval * Smoking allowed outside * Not childproof

  • This property definitely was not for us

    This property definitely was not for us. Poorly presented, toaster and jug did not work, probably due to electrical wiring which did not look like it complied with regulations. Tap fell off in hand in shower. Booked 4 nights, stayed one due to late arrival of two of our party. Vacated early next morning. Very disappointed. Did not come anywhere near the minimum standard, we felt very uncomfortable being there.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Guests didn't read the ad properly, complaining of features that are VERY clearly stated (ie long drop) expectations too high for an old bach , 7 hrs of cleaning was completed 1hr before arrival. Only alerted about the toaster and jug issue after they left. When I left appliances were working . Turned off at the wall to save power, I can only presume they failed to turn it back on. Had they called me I would have helped solve the problem. Only alerted of tap with this feedback, we will fix this
