  • Delightful bach in every way

    Delightful bach in every way. Cosy, charming, homely and comfortable, with lovely nooks. Fabulous outlook onto the forest. The best kind of kiwi bach that reflects thoughtful owners who have made this house something special.

  • La Foret is a gorgeous kiwi Bach close to everything

    La Foret is a gorgeous kiwi Bach close to everything. The property was very clean and tidy. It had tons of character. We were there on a very cold weekend and managed to be quite warm inside with the wood fire, heat pump and electric blankets. Everything we could have wanted in a house was available and we even had access to the garage to store our family's bikes. There were 8 of us all together and we had more than enough space to spread out and be comfortable. We can't wait to stay here again.
