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);

    What a great place! We only stayed two nights but will be back. We had four seasons in two days and the house was great for each one. Perfect in so many regards. Five stars!

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, gorgeous cottage, relaxing and pleasant setting, well-organised bach. Didn't get to take advantage of rowing the dinghy or the canoe in the stream that runs alongside because the weather was less than conducive - but look forward to that another time.

    Even though it was a winter stay the fireplace made it very cosy. The house is well maintained with all you need. A summer experience would be even better still. Highly recommended.
