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!

    We had a really lovely stay - thanks! The cottage garden was charming and the kids really enjoyed seeing the resident farm animals. Everything was very clean and tidy, comfy beds and lovely spacious kitchen and lounge for the kids to play and relax. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a quiet getaway :)
