New Zealand is the land of rugged outdoor adventure, incredible natural scenery and some of the friendliest locals in the world.

And, as the weather gets colder and you’re planning on doing a lot of outdoor activities, having an outdoor bath to get warm and toasty in the sunshine can be a huge plus.

Luckily, here at Bachcare we’ve got a wide range of 5-star holiday homes complete with modern finishes and outdoor baths perfect to enjoy the day and starry night skies of Aoteroa.
