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 batch / holiday home

    Great batch / holiday home . Quiet & peaceful location . Shared bathroom but very tidy & clean throughout the batch . BBQ facilities , DVD player , games for any children plus adults . No TV but that suited us fine. Maybe an upgrade of lounge suite sometime . 2 Comfortable double beds plus 2 singles if required for children . Handy to golf course & tennis courts . Hotel & café just down the road which were great .

  • Quiet, sunny, spacious place with restful garden and surrounds

    Quiet, sunny, spacious place with restful garden and surrounds. Delightfully novel house heating system with the fireplace running radiators in the rooms! Worked well. A thoroughly pleasant stay. Missed having a microwave a couple of times, but it was great having cellphone coverage.

    The property is looking lovely this time of year. The house is very well equipped and especially love the french doors opening up into the garden. Highly recommended

    This property has everything - more than meets the eye: Peace like you've stepped off the world, comfort with snuggly beds and a big bath with plenty of hot water, play space with adventure and a short drive to the sea, reading galore, country style with zing. We enjoyed introducing the kids to records and board games. Three generations of us had a ball with plenty of space to be together and also to do our own thing. We highly recommend this clean, stylish, spacious home for a great get-away.
