Our bach is fun, funky and relaxing to be in. Bi-folding doors open onto a good sized deck creating lovely indoor/outdoor flow. The large barbeque and outdoor table (on wheels) and chairs can easily be set up on the covered deck or private grassed area as desired. From 2015 the bach is also home to Art Break Waihi taking bookings throughout the year.
Although it offers room for one or two families, couples will enjoy the bach's attention to detail (a continuing work in progress) and its ability to comfortably sleep three couples who can enjoy their own privacy. A second toilet and fabulous outdoor shower can be accessed from the outside - handy for those sleeping in the beach hut, coming off the beach or just in nearby rooms.
The split king bed in the blue room can be zipped together or serve as 2 single beds as preferred. All the beds are comfortable and most are new with good quality bedding. Three of the rooms have ranch sliders opening out onto the grassed area and louvres allowing both independent access when the place is unlocked and plenty of ventilation on those hot summer days and nights.
Offering both sun and shade the bach is nestled between pohutakawa trees and pines in a quiet cul de sac and is very private. Having no TV ensures games are played, books are read...There are many games available as well as 'beach toys' and essentials (see separate photo), 3 push bikes and 2 sit-on kayaks.
Despite there being no microwave or dishwasher, the kitchen is well equipped for the culinary-inclined.
The 'hi-fi' unit is a Tivoli radio with speaker for an iPod/cell phone with bluetooth.
Waihi Beach is a gem for its beauty, its walks, surf and trendy boutique shops, cafes and eateries. the gateway to the Hauraki rail trail and the Karangahake Gorge where you can take a train ride, enjoy the walks and swimming holes or discover the out of the way art and craft outlets. Athenree hot pools are 5 minutes away by car or a paddle across the harbour. Tauranga is 40 minutes away by car.
