Description

  • Be mesmerised by the wild West Coast surf pounding the beach just below the bach.
  • On a sunny day or during a wild West Coast storm... you'll love it in any weather.
  • Keep a look out for the locals which include weka, orca, dolphins, seals, penguins & other seabirds.

This is the perfect location to soak up the atmosphere of the wild West Coast. Ideal for stunning sunsets or watching the spectacle of big west coast waves crashing at your feet - all from the comfort of a warm cosy bach.

Waihaha (meaning 'place of noisy waters') perfectly describes this magical spot - especially during big seas. At low tide enjoy a stroll along miles of sand and pebble beach and if you're lucky you will find pounamu/jade.

Located just 2 kms from Fox River with its caves and bush walks, there is plenty to see and do in the area. The pancake rocks at Punakaiki are just a 15-minute drive south. Westport is 30 minutes north of the bach.

The nearest cell phone reception is at Punakaiki to the south or Charleston to the north (both a 15-minute drive).

Enjoy free unlimited fast internet and Netflix, there is no broadcast TV.

Cleaning and linen are included with your rental. Please just do your dishes, leave the bach clean and tidy - we will do the rest :-)

Free tea, coffee and pantry basics are provided - be my guest.

HELP SAVE THE PENGUINS: A portion of every booking is donated to The West Coast Penguin Trust, $360 has been raised and donated to date this year - the penguins... and the Trust THANK-YOU!

**Please note that Waihaha Bach is not fenced from the road or the ocean - so small children would need constant supervision when outside.

    Perfect location by the sea, stunning views, watched the dolphins while having breakfast on the deck. Handy to the Fox River Sunday market and the river, loads to do or just sit back and relax.

    We stayed one week at Waihaha Bach - the iconic Kiwi bach we had hoped for was exactly what we got, and we can't express how much we enjoyed our time there, and exploring the coast with Waihaha as our base. Despite retaining it's "bach" heritage, Waihaha was clean, well equipped and totally comfortable, and we will never forget the sound of the sea almost on our doorstep - the place was an absolute tonic :-)
