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 farmland. 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. Weekly rate of $700 for two adults. 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, $10 per child.

    Such a relaxing place and we were blessed with amazing weather during our stay. The deck is an awesome quiet spot to have a bbq, and rowing down the stream in Daisy was the highlight of our stay there. The place is really well equipped too. We loved our time there and would like to go back again :)
