    Rustic but comfortable bach - perfect for a relaxed holiday 'away from it all'. Really loved the open fire, easy beach access and comfortable beds.

    The location is perfect, beachside you can hear the sea in your sleep. The chairs and fire pit on the beach is lovely. The property is a little to far to stroll to town but is a short five minute drive. The property has everything you need and the towels and bedding are lovely. The house itself is a typical kiwi bach, basic. All the instructions on the walls makes it feel like your in a hostel rather than a home. The shower is lovely and hot with good pressure. No complaints at all :)
