Overview

Photos and Description of this Huia holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 7)

Nestled in the bush with a sunny deck above the river.

Spend your days on Piha beach (a flat 10 minute walk in one direction, or exploring the Kite kite Falls (entrance to the track just 5 minutes in the other direction, or just swimming in your own private swimming hole right below the house.

Our cute 1950?s inspired house will take you back in time, literally.

Enjoy a hot bath on the deck with the sound of the river below, see glowworms twinkling on the bank outside the window, watch Native kereru and tui sitting in the trees right next to you. or sit on the deck and watch the river go by.

A truly unique Aotearoa experience; comfortable and cosy with an element of ?roughing it?.

The house itself is perfect for a family or couple.

Other adult visitors wanting privacy can sleep in a cute sleep-out with double bed on the other side of the river, (note: there are solar lights but no power in the sleep out, therefore it is quite cold in the winter but awesome in summer.

What a cute and well equipped Bach!

What a cute and well equipped Bach! Nestled in a forest and perched over a stunning swimming hole on a beautiful river. Wow! The outdoor bath under a crystal clear winter sky was such a treat. Thank you Jude for sharing your special place with us, Liz

What the cottage lacks in amenities (there is no flushing loo!), it makes up for in character.

What the cottage lacks in amenities (there is no flushing loo!), it makes up for in character. What a lovely place to spend a summers day - basking on the deck and then cooling off in the stream. Even if the weather turns the fire will keep you toasty! If you want to escape into the kiwi bush, but still want the comfort of 4 walls and a bed, then the cute river house is the place is for you.
