  • Old school kiwi style bach in a fantastic water front location

    Old school kiwi style bach in a fantastic water front location. Paddle boards supplied were a real bonus and my partner and I really enjoyed our stay.

  • Amazing location, nicely appointed bach! Can't think of a more beautiful way...

    Amazing location, nicely appointed bach! Can't think of a more beautiful way to spend a holiday than sitting on the deck watching the tide come and go as the horses pass along the shoreline. Fun to be on a working farm and it was an extra bonus when the Oyster farmer delivered a batch of delicious Oysters for our first night's dinner. Not even some pretty average weather could dampen our experience. Perfect.
