This is the perfect location to soak up the atmosphere of the wild West Coast. Ideal for stunning sunsets or watching the spectacle of big west coast waves crashing at your feet - all from the comfort of a warm cosy bach.
Waihaha (meaning 'place of noisy waters') perfectly describes this magical spot - especially during big seas. At low tide enjoy a stroll along miles of sand and pebble beach and if you're lucky you will find pounamu/jade.
Located just 2 kms from Fox River with its caves and bush walks, there is plenty to see and do in the area. The pancake rocks at Punakaiki are just a 15-minute drive south. Westport is 30 minutes north of the bach.
The nearest cell phone reception is at Punakaiki to the south or Charleston to the north (both a 15-minute drive).
Enjoy free unlimited internet and Netflix (there is no broadcast TV)
Cleaning and linen are included with your rental. Please just do your dishes, leave the bach clean and tidy - we will do the rest :-)
Free tea, coffee and pantry basics are provided - be my guest.
