Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)
Paul (owner) always dreamed of designing his own bach. He wanted it to be very different from his city home and reminiscent of a barn that opens up to the elements. The materials of plywood and corrugated iron and cedar lend itself to this vision. The double story glass windows invite the outside in and the ability to open all the windows and doors in summer creates a tent like experience. Paul's love of art and design and his love of Africa and NZ is reflected in the eclectic decor. This is not a bach for those who love beige or wall to wall carpets. This is for those who want a Kiwi bach experience - a retreat from all that is city (with a few mod cons thrown in!)
jiller832 purchased this House in 1998
Why jiller832 chose Onemana
We chose Onemana as the place to build our holiday home because we both lived near and loved a surf beach called Nahoon in East London, South Africa. Our bach is named after this beach and offers us a similar experience of a white sand surf beach, long summer days, lots of bush and birds and walks and family and friends - all the good things in life!
What makes this House unique
Onemana cafe is great for breakfasts and more, Whangamata is 10 mins drive away for all your needs.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
All we wanted and more
Enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing week in this very well equipped bach. Unwound the moment we arrived with books, backgammon and dinner on the deck, bushwalks, beach time and brunches in Whangamata and Tirua. It was all we wanted and more with the added bonus of being dog friendly. Loved it!
Lovely house in beautiful spot
Well maintained house with everything you need for a comfortable stay, outdoor shower very pleasant!
Awesome Bach, well equipped, will recommend it to anyone, great communication with the owners/Jill
Can’t wait to return to this awesome Bach. Had a wonderful holiday in a beautiful Bach. Lovely views from the deck, outside shower was a hit with the kids, a decent bbq/braai to tan your meat on!!!
Thanks again Jill

Unfortunatley a local mowing company called Mowtivated mowed lawns, weedeated and blew leafs for 6 hours on the Saturday and started again at 8.15am on the Sunday morning. they were still at it when we left at 11.00am. Really ruined an otherwise idyllic weekend.
The Tui outside our window,the tranquility of the trees.
