Description

Comfortable modern cottage in a sheltered garden with its own streamfront. In a quiet suburban setting, 5-10 minutes walk to Otaki Beach, our bach has generous outdoor living areas looking over the Waitohu Stream and onto a reserve. We chose it as our retreat because it is warm, private and sheltered from coastal winds, while still within the sound of the sea. For winter nights there's a woodburner and firewood. It's casual but tidy, fully furnished, and equipped as we would hope to find a bach we rent.

From the bach you'll be able to visit Otaki's outlet stores, explore the Tararuas, or take the rowboat for a lazy row down the stream to the beautiful, wide north end of Otaki Beach.

Special conditions:

Two night minimum stay. Most suited to a couple or small family (without toddlers, because of the stream), but additional adults can be catered for at $20 per person per night, $15 per child.

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);

  • Beautiful set up for a restful and comfortable stay

    Beautiful set up for a restful and comfortable stay. Enjoyed rowing and paddling to the beach, the beach itself and the local food and coffee. The trees and birds were an added bonus.

  • Good bach, well-equipped, hiding in the trees beside the stream

    Good bach, well-equipped, hiding in the trees beside the stream. We really liked the swimming and walking at the beach, getting there once by rowing the boat, once by walking, and once by driving to the Surf Life Saving station.
