Overview

Photos and Description of this Otaki Beach holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 5)

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 farmland. 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);

Bach is just as described - quiet, private, casual and great fun to row down the stream!

  • 5 of 5

Bach is just as described - quiet, private, casual and great fun to row down the stream! Has everything you need, nice and clean, and a spacious living area with tranquil garden outlook. There were lots of noisy doves next door when we arrived - I think the neighbour feeds them - but after a short while they quietened down and they didn't come on to the property.

The owners were so easy and delightful to work with. Very courteous and respectful. The facilities had everything that we needed for our staff retreat...internet, dishwasher, heatpump, privacy, television, Blu-Ray player proximity to town etc. Thank you and God bless.

The Bach was spacious and comfortable, very private. Then you look out onto the deck and you're looking down on the stream complete with swing. And then there are the doves...
