Firstly I LOVED it that we could bring our dog, who loved the beach and bush walks. The bach had everything we needed for a comfortable and peaceful holiday and more really i.e. we were invited to use the dvds and games plus the outdoor cooking facilities (bbq/fireplace). The weather was perfect so we picnic'd a couple of times on the front lawn amongst the trees and birds. I also found a few comfy well-lit spots inside for reading. We should have booked for longer!
What a little treasure! Such a quiet secluded location, nestled amongst native trees with amazing bird life. We had a great time, the Bach is set up with everything you need. Roasting marshmallows on the fire in the evening was a definite highlight. As was being about 3 metres away from a wood pigeon amongst the Kowhai trees in the yard. Lovely Bach, we'll definitely be back.
Thanks Corinne. You are welcome back anytime:) Love the photo of the wood pigeon. When we first bought the property 30 years or more ago there was only one pair of wood pigeons now there are countless and bell birds some yellow heads and we have heard kiwi too. It is very exciting. Glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for taking care of HazyDaze
