Description

“2013 Silver Winner Golden Piwa Awards" BEST IN HOSPITALITY!

'The Library' refers to the original bach on this property, a small relocated country library. This now serves as a characterful sleepout and sits behind the main bach which is located beside an estuary. The large section is quiet, bush-clad, bird-filled and has superb inlet and mountain views.

The bach is private and open plan - think designer retro-pacific styled tramping hut! Beds are in the loft and on the ground floor with no doors between. The bach's size, character and proximity to stunning beaches help make it a wonderful holiday destination for couples or small families.

Extra features include nearby migratory godwits and other wonderful bird life, including little blue penguins who are rarely seen but often heard and nest under the library sleep-out or wood pile. Plentiful cockles and pipi are a short stroll away at low tide. There are also a superb selection of natural history, children's and other fiction books, a large record collection, gas hot water and stove top, a trampoline, 3 kayaks, 1 bike, an outside bath and a composting indoor toilet.

The bach is a few steps away from a safe swimming beach and in 2006 won an NZIA Resene Local Award for Architecture.

For every night The Library Bach is booked, a $5.00 donation will be made to the Nelson ARK, a Charitable Trust. The Nelson ARK rescues unwanted and abused dogs and pairs them up with young people who are perhaps losing their way, for an eight week training course. This combination has proven to be truly transformative for the lives of both the young people and the rescued dogs, and has repercussions throughout the entire community. So far The Library Bach has raised over $4,500.00 for ARK. Find out more about The Nelson ARK on their website and which is unable to be referenced here!

  • As we were there in the winter there were a few things...

    As we were there in the winter there were a few things we noted. There was a lot of condensation on the windows and the curtains altough attractive were not warming. An hot water bottle would have been good. The wood burning stove worked very well to counteract the cold. I would recommend this bach to others.
