Overview

Photos and Description of this Punakaiki holiday house

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

It doesn't get any better than this, built on solid rock just out of reach of the breaking surf and just a one minute walk to a white sandy beach... this iconic kiwi bach has braved the elements since the 1940s. Little has changed, the view is still breath-taking, the interior is still very 'bachy' - albeit with a few more modern conveniences. A trip to the loo is still a dash down the garden path although this is now a flush toilet. This is the great kiwi bach experience from yesteryear. With no neighbours looking in, you have total privacy... though you may have to share the rocky shore line with the occasional seal or penguin.

Free WIFI broadband. Bach telephone for local and incoming calls (no mobile coverage)

Located just 15 mins north of Punakaiki... or 25 mins south of Westport.

Winner of the Bookabach 2014 Gold Piwa Award for 'Best Setting"

Cleaning: Please do the dishes and we will do the rest. Linen included.

*There is a sofa bed to accommodate 1 extra guest (in same room as the bed) however the bach is more comfortable with two guests (see photos)

2 night minimum stay, unless indicated.

Book 5 nights and stay the 6th night free.

Help SAVE THE PENGUINS: A portion of every booking is donated to the West Coast Penguin Trust - $760 raised and donated so far. There is also a West Coast Penguin Trust donation box in the bach if you can spare any change for the Penguins - The penguins thank you! :-)

Special conditions:

The flush loo is outside (down a short garden path)

This stunning location is DOC conservation land and therefore restrictions apply, PETS ARE PROHIBITED.

Due to the obvious terrain around the bach - small children would need constant supervision.
