Are you on the hunt for a quintessential Kiwi bach that combines switched off, rustic living with cosy home comforts? Then look no further than Whare Parauri at beautiful Tata Beach, Golden Bay.

Lush native bush provides a dramatic backdrop for the golden sand of Tata Beach, and nestled among the greenery is Whare Parauri, which can be best described as “Kiwi bach meets leafy retreat”. With wood burning fireplaces both indoors and out keeping you cosy, a large hammock to doze or read a book in, and the sound of native birdsong coming from every direction, you really have no choice but to switch off.

This classic Kiwi bach features three bedrooms and one bathroom, with the bedrooms perfectly configured to make the home suitable for a range of groups. Two rooms offer double occupancy in a queen bed, while the third features a single bed and bunks. Pet owners will be pleased to hear that their furry family members are welcome outdoors at Whare Parauri.

Decorated in true Kiwi bach style with an open-plan design, the indoor living spaces here at Whare Parauri enjoy an abundance of natural light. A book shelf laden with good reads awaits guests who love to get lost in a world of words, while a TV and DVD player will keep the kids entertained - if you can drag them away from the beach that is!

A cool breeze flows through the house thanks to sliding glass doors leading out to the deck, where a BBQ and picnic table offer alfresco dining options. Indoors, the kitchen has everything you’ll need to self-cater on your holiday, and for those longer stays, a washing machine provides that little bit of extra convenience.

Small boat owners are welcome to park their vessel on the driveway at Whare Parauri, but don’t worry if you don’t have one of your own because there is a small dinghy and a kayak here ready for you to use.

With soft sand and tide patterns that make swimming comfortable all year round, you’ll probably spend all your time in the region at Tata Beach. But if venturing further afield does tickle your fancy, it’s only 20 minutes by car to the shops and cafes at Takaka, and about an hour and half to Marahau for access to the Abel Tasman Coastal track or Kaiteriteri to admire Split Apple Rock.

For sun, sand, and switched off serenity, the Whare Parauri classic Tata Beach bach awaits!

Stayed April 2022

Great classic bach. Warm. Nice private section surrounded by bush and birds. 2 minute walk to the beach. Great for kids

Stayed January 2022

The property is in a good location, just a few mins walk to the beach. It is tucked into the trees and hill which means it doesn’t get any sun, at any point of the day so is quite dark and cold. It also makes drying clothes, togs and towels difficult. Two of the bedrooms do not have doors, and the third is a thoroughfare, so you cannot expect privacy or noise barrier in this house. I wish we had known this before our stay. The kitchen is poorly equipped - we only had 4 plates! Overall cleanliness was quite poor - a lot of cobwebs and grime. Tata beach is beautiful so we really loved being near this, but we were disappointed with the house, especially given the high rate being charged.
