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."

    We had a greta stay at Sandy Bay and loved the experience of a typical Kiwi bach. It was great that we were allowed to bring out dog too as he is so much part of the family. Tutukaka is a wonderful part of the North with an exceptional coastline.

    If you want to stay at an authentic kiwi bach, this is the place for you. It very much brought back memories of our bach in the 60's. Beautiful location with fabulous views.
