Description

Visit the stunning Karangahake Gorge, our bach is located in Waikino only a few minutes walk across the swing bridge to the Hauraki Rail Trail, historic gold mining sites and miniature train.

We are nestled above the iconic Waikino Tavern, so after your day exploring the area you can grab a drink, a meal and relax!

Waikino is located half way between Paeroa and Waihi, close enough to easily pop into town to explore the antique shops and art galleries or head down to the beach for some time in the sun.

The bach itself has four double rooms and a bunk room and there are an additional three double rooms and a bunk room in two separate buildings available for larger groups or individual hire. Please note in your booking query if you require the outside rooms or would like to book the whole property.

Please note: the bach is over 130 years old (it used to be a miner's boarding house), it has been renovated internally but it's still an old structure with the associated quirks and is very much a 'kiwi' family bach not a new building.

Special conditions:

Deck is not fenced so not suitable for unsupervised children.

If you haven't booked all the accommodation the shearers quarters and baby barn may be used by the owners.

Extras: Linen (Required); Baby Barn individual hire (Optional, NZ$80.00 per night); Shearers quarters individual hire per room (Optional, NZ$80.00 per night);

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; take your rubbish with you

  • Great size and placement

    Great size and placement. We loved trees, river and cycle trail used daily. Superb size and condition for our big group. Close enough to Waihi Beach. Only issue was lack of clothes washing facilities.

    This was a great bach to have the whole family or large group of friends together. The bach was clean and neat and had everything that one would need. Loved our stay and would definitely visit back again.

  • Pleasantly surprised, everything that the description says was accurate if not downplaying...

    Pleasantly surprised, everything that the description says was accurate if not downplaying the property a bit. All 4 generations of my family who came from all over New Zealand for Mum's 80th birthday at the falls retreat restaurant within walking distance of the bach property, thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • Great house for our family to hang out

    Great house for our family to hang out. Loved the showers and comfy beds. The location was superb - only minutes to the Victoria Battery, stroll up to the Falls cafe and waterfall, Waikino train station, hop down to the tavern, and glow-worms out in the bush. Quick responses from Sarah - thank you for letting us stay!
