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. 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.

    We loved this place! Easy, clean, well appointed and tidy Bach. Big bonus having a boat and kayaks, climbing tree and swing. The river/stream was a real adventure for the kids being able to paddle to the beach everyday. Wonderful bird life to watch and listen to. A real wind in the willows oasis . We will be back!

    Beautiful bach in quiet secluded spot, next to the river and under the trees. Lovely family room and kitchen that catches the sun, nice bedrooms and all facilities needed for a short break. Highly recommend!
