  • Remote, natural

    Remote, natural. Loved the added experience of feeding the dog, collecting the eggs etc. A beautiful secluded bay 50 meters away.

    Couldn't draw a better scene to spend Christmas in a traditional NZ Bach! Being animal lovers caring for the dog Kuri and cat LuLe made us feel right at home. Fresh eggs from the chooks is an added bonus. Shower water pressure could use a little boost but by no means would it be a deal breaker. Views I won't soon forget. Stunning piece of paradise.

    Typical sounds bach, basic charm! Lovely setting, trees gave excellent protection from onshore wind. Large dog in your care, so I wouldnt reccomend to anyone nervous of dogs/with very small children, our confident 4yr old was bowled over a couple of times. Plenty of wildlife. Would recommend the owner makes some written instructions on how to care for the animals for guests to refer to. Kids loved the kyack and row boats, lots of happy days on the water.
