  • Such a cute quiet little place

    Such a cute quiet little place. The added bonus of the coffee, herbs and oils, insect repellent and sunblock was a lovely touch. The kids especially loved the boogie boards. The Bach was extremely well stocked. We wanted to bring the coffee machine home it was so good! Thanks for the use of this great little Bach!

    Such a great place to stay! In a beautiful location, the bach felt incredibly private. A perfect place to stay to get away from Auckland for a little while. The interior has a relaxed and cosy vibe, while outside you can sit down and watch kereru in the trees. We wouldn't hesitate to come back again.
