    Whalers Rest is a great kiwi bach, very clean and tidy and warm with the fire going. 5 min walk from town and lovely bird song.

  • What a place and location, just perfect

    What a place and location, just perfect. Nice to be in a real bach with crook floors (great) and just all the bits you need. No polished, white wall perfection. But a laid back, very relaxing, cozy home in a beautiful surrounding. The bird life is fantastic. Where else would you be welcomed by two super friendly Kaka. If you are as lucky as me and the weather is that good, then you don't want to miss the sunsets and rises, they are just out of this world. In love with the place.

  • Great Bach

    Great Bach. Awesome birds and bush views. Really cosy with the fire and wood supply. Had most of everything included but would benefit from having a washing machine. A springclean of spider webs improved the feel. Great mix of private plantings and natural bush. Thanks again.
