Overview

Photos and Description of this Ostend holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

Looking for a simple, family bach with character and oasis-like setting? It's all privacy with native bush surrounding the property but not restricting the sunlight. Have breakfast with the Tuis and Keruru as they eat the berries from the Nikau Palms.

Warm and cosy home with upstairs Queen Room, downstairs bunks (for four children), and separate Queen sleepout. Living area connects to deck and 3 steps to the flowing lawn, and hammock. This home sleeps 8, but most suited to one or two couples looking for a relaxing romantic break or a family wanting some special time together. There is a cupboard full of board games, cards and jigsaw puzzles, the cricket set, swing ball and petanque. L and R Golf clubs; boogie-boards and dartboard in carport. Bring your iPOD, iphone, MP3, or CDs for the stereo. TV with Freeview (although reception is intermittent) and DVD player installed. Some childrens DVDs available.

The comfy Queen beds have new mattresses. The bunks are best for kids. Protectors, pillows and duvets on all beds. We can supply sheets (beds made for arrival) and bath towels, or bring your own linen with you (and kitchen linen). Please bring your own beach towels either way.There are heaters in each room for winter warmth.

The kitchen is fully equipped, microwave, oven, coffee plunger, toaster, large fridge/freezer, and there is a gas BBQ on the deck. Some herbs grow freely. You are welcome to use and replace any pantry items.

Centrally located the house is 200m from the bus stop, five minute walk to Ostend and cafes, ten minute walk to the supermarket and a twelve minute walk to Palm Beach and ice-cream. The house has off-road space for two cars (or one car and a boat). Check-out the frequent car-ferry specials and bring your own car, or hire scooters, or bus.

Our rates are quoted for 4 people with $15 per extra person. Enquire about our weekly rate and save substantially. Check-in at 4pm and check-out at 11am - unless by prior arrangement. Pets by special arrangement.

Special conditions:

Small pets allowed with prior approval.

Credit Card accepted, please state in booking request, 3.5% surcharge.

The shower is over a bath tub but we prefer guests to shower in the interests of water conservation, as we rely soley on rainwater. In periods of low rain fall we may restrict the number of guests staying or charge for excessive use of water.

The bach was great for our needs. Lovely location in the bush. The house was well equipped and the children loved the selection of games and toys.
