Clean, comfortable, peaceful, it’s the perfect spot for a relaxing holiday with or without kids.

There’s a short drive to Coromandel town for groceries, cafes, restaurants, tourist attractions including the famous Driving Creek railway – a must for kids!

This much loved family getaway, which is about to turn 60, was the inspiration for the hit stage comedy “The Bach.”

There’s no TV or DVD player (though the cell phone reception is so good you can stream pretty much anything you want to watch). This is old school: people talking to each other as they admire the view, and strumming on my old guitar as they sing along to Hello Sailor’s “Lie On The Sand.”

Special conditions: We are on tank water so please conserve water. No tents, caravans, campervans etc. Smoking outside only. Note that linen and towels each incur a $10 surcharge per person per stay. Otherwise please bring your own.

    Great place to stay, water just across the road and even if it's too cold to swim, you can still enjoy the perfect view from the comfty couch in the bach! :)

    We love this bach - a perfect mix of old-school vibe and stunning location. Morning sun pours into the living area, watch the harbour empty and fill, high-tide swimming is literally across the road, trees and birdlife behind you, and there's a lovely feel to the small community. There is no dishwasher, washing machine, microwave or BBQ which all helps with getting back to basics and in touch with life's simple pleasures. We don't want to rave about it too much in case it gets booked out forever!
