A get away only 1 hour north of Christchurch, this bach offers rural outlooks and is only minutes drive from a 9 hole golf course and tennis courts.

The fantastic Motunau Beach is also close by (15min drive), there is great sandy beach and also the river mouth where boats come and go. In the other direction is Waikari (20 minutes drive) where you can explore limestone formations and Maori rock art. Waipara is 15 minutes drive south of the bach and offers lovely wineries and resturants to sample.

There is a 2 night minimum booking for this bach.

The bach is also located 5km from The Woolshed at Tipapa, a popular function venue.

For the winter a wood burning kitchen cooker heats a radiator system throughout the house.

This property is great for kids to make huts, play cricket and ride their bikes. But also great for adults who want to chill out!

    Great location for wedding at Tipapa which we attended. Super cheap with great facilities (kitchen, bathroom, DVD player, tidy rooms) and we only really used it for sleeping so fulfilled all our needs!

  • Wonderful warm well-equipped house

    Wonderful warm well-equipped house. Lots of books, games, puzzles and gumboots to enjoy! Had a great little getaway and in fairly close proximity to Tepapa Estate for a wedding! Was great to completely unplug and have no cell phone/wifi etc.. Would certainly stay again!
