Absolute beachfront, this is the ultimate 60s Kiwi bach with breathtaking views direct over the beach to Kapiti. The front wall is all glass and frames Kapiti Island. The bach is close to Waimeha Stream and a short walk along the beach to the cafes, tennis court or local shops. This is a beautiful and funky spot. Ideal for couples or a small family, this is an intimate and relaxing hideaway perfect to recharge your batteries. In the winter you may choose to sleep by the open fire and wake up to the view of the sea. Please note access to bedroom 2 (with bunks) is via bedroom 1 (queen bed). This is an architectural 60s building and special. Relax here with no tv and just chill.

    Loved the location right on the beach and the perfect view of Kapiti Island. Our boys had the freedom to wander and build huts and we could watch them from the bach. Great cafe nearby and we enjoyed toasting marshmallows on fire.

    A truly superb stay in a quintessential classic 60's bach without telephone or television – how life used to be – bliss! Drinking in the ever changing view over Kapiti Island was a delight, as was the sense of privacy and our very own rugged patch of coast. A thoroughly enjoyable step back in time and a holiday we will remember for quite a while, all family commenting they would return anytime!
