Feedback from guests:

"The bach was great and we really enjoyed our stay. We liked the living area and the deck the most. Easy access to the beach would be another key attribute."

"What a find! This is the ultimate Kiwi bach experience. Choosing a highlight is difficult - though the view is incredible, the outdoor shower really made my stay. "

"What a cool little place! Loved the old-school feel and the beautiful beach (I have always loved the Sandy Bay area) and had a relaxing time. Would definitely recommend a stay here."

    The Green Bach at Sandy Bay is the perfect place for anyone looking for that typical Kiwi beach and bach holiday. Overlooking the north end of wonderful Sandy Bay, the house and large verandah catch all-day sun. The open-plan kitchen/living area is a relaxing space — I enjoyed preparing meals with an ever-changing view of the beach and hills beyond. Plenty of beds for family and friends.
