The perfect winter`s hide-a-way to recharge body and mind. And for the summer simply brilliant!

Very peaceful and quiet location right on the edge of Ohiwa Harbour close to the main channel. Fishing, shell fish, kayaking, surf beach, bush walks, sailing, kite surfing, glow worms and more all at your door step, everything you could ask for in a tranquil beach side location. Further enhanced by the ever changing moods of the tidal harbour lapping at the property boundary. Watch the bird life come and go, feeding with the changing tides.

A compact bach with fully equipped kitchen, sleeping is upstairs on the mezzanine floor. The mezzanine floor is accessed by a ladder staircase and contains a Queen bed and two single beds (one rolls under the other when not in use). The second bedroom is a caravan which is accessed from the deck at the back of bach with queen sized bed and complete with plumbing, power (for fridge kettle, heater). Plenty of space for extra tents on the section provides further options. The large wrap-around deck with table and chairs provides for outdoor living with relaxation the name of the game.
