Description

Comfortable modern cottage in a sheltered garden with its own streamfront. In a quiet suburban setting, 5-10 minutes walk to Otaki Beach, our bach has generous outdoor living areas looking over the Waitohu Stream and onto a reserve. We chose it as our retreat because it is warm, private and sheltered from coastal winds, while still within the sound of the sea. For winter nights there's a woodburner and firewood. It's casual but tidy, fully furnished, and equipped as we would hope to find a bach we rent.

From the bach you'll be able to visit Otaki's outlet stores, explore the Tararuas, or take the rowboat for a lazy row down the stream to the beautiful, wide north end of Otaki Beach.

Special conditions:

Two night minimum stay. Most suited to a couple or small family (without toddlers, because of the stream), but additional adults can be catered for at $20 per person per night, $15 per child.

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);

  • This bach was a very clean and comfortable place to stay

    This bach was a very clean and comfortable place to stay. We loved the privacy and serenity and also the bird life and little stream beside the bach. We would recommend this place to anyone, and are hoping to stay there again in the near future. The bach as very well set up, with lots of crockery, cutlery, pots and pans and the dishwasher was a great feature, even though there was only 4 of us. The outside deck is a lovely place to spend time in the evenings.

  • Really appreciated the good communication with the owner

    Really appreciated the good communication with the owner. Loved the home and its environs, especially the stream running alongside the property, and the local birds in the surrounding trees.

    A well set up property, quiet and peaceful, with an inviting deck space. A nice touch having a kayak and dinghy.

    We just loved this house! The bed was one of the most comfortable beds we've slept in. The kitchen had everything we could possible need. The house was homely and not too bachy. We loved the row boat and the outdoor area was beautiful with tui and doves around. We will be back. Thanks Bob!
