Description

  • Sweeping 180 degree sea and coastal views from a comfy house just steps from the beach
  • Equipped with woodburner to keep cosy in winter
  • Wide wrap-around decks, outside tables and seating

Cathedral-roofed modern beach house with spectacular views of the Wairarapa coast all the way down to Castlepoint. Just steps away from the beach and overlooking a reef where you can find paua and crayfish. Good swimming, fishing and surfing but at its best when you just want to chill out. It's great in winter as there is a woodburner to gather around and keep the house cosy.

The house has a huge three-sided wrap-around deck with plenty of outdoor seating - you can find shelter outside most days, even in winter. You can barbecue on the extra deck beside kitchen - also a great place to sit and look over the dunes to the sea and hills.

The house is well kitted-out, but we've tried not to lose the kiwi bach feel. Fireplace and books, magazines and games to entertain. Sea views everywhere. Downstairs has been turned into a games room with pool table, table tennis and table football. There's a kayak (with life jackets) available to explore the reef or paddle up the Akitio river.

All in all it is a much-loved, spacious, family bach. It's become part of other family's holidays as well as our own. We're glad that so many of our guests come back year after year.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only. Reduced tariff available for stays of 3 nights or longer but out of high season only. Ungated deck and unfenced garden

    Awesome location, right on the beach with uninterrupted views along the beach. House is well equipped and spacious, and everything was just as described. Would definitely come back again!

  • The Bach is extremely well positioned being both peaceful and still within...

    The Bach is extremely well positioned being both peaceful and still within easy reach of the beach. We loved the true Kiwi Bach style and appreciated being away from the normal daily distractions such as TV and internet. With good mobile access, we were able to connect to the internet when needed, mainly to download more books to read! Perfect getaway location and Bach...
