The Beach Bach - Waikanae Beach Holiday Home

Open the bifold doors and let the sunshine in. You’re on holiday and the beach is only steps away. Welcome to The Beach Bach!

Enjoying a prime, Waikanae beachfront location, this three-bedroom holiday home is packed with character and charm.

Two sun-drenched living spaces are just waiting for you to arrive, put your feet up and launch into holiday mode. A TV room is kept nice and cosy on a mid-year getaway, thanks to a wood-burning fireplace, while a spacious sun-room offers seamless indoor-outdoor flow onto the patio.

With plenty of seating, including comfy bean bags and an alfresco dining setting, this outdoor space will be where you spend much of your summer holiday time. Spark up the BBQ and grill your fresh catch of the day, paired with a salad you’ve whipped up in the fully equipped kitchen.

Make sure you take time to enjoy the view and catch a few rays on the elevated sun-deck. Look out over the greenery and get lost in the sea views out to Kapiti Island.

Later, light the outdoor fireplace and chat long into the evening before laying your head down to rest for tomorrow’s adventures. A queen bed and bunks in the house offer the ideal configuration for a small family, and the additional sleepout is a perfect haven for the teenagers to call their own.

A bathroom in the house provides the conveniences for your stay and even has a spa bath to soak in with a cheeky glass of bubbles in hand.

Down at the beach, stroll past the Waimanu Lagoon and along to the Waikanae Estuary, or simply set the towels down for a day of sun, sand, and saltwater. You’ll find other picturesque and peaceful spots on a road trip up and down the Kapiti Coast. Why not stop at Queen Elizabeth Park or Te Horo Beach, both only a 15-minute drive away.

When you need supplies or your morning Flat White, walk to Long Beach Cafe, Beach Bakery, or the local Four Square. Or, you could travel 10 minutes into Waikanae town where there are a larger supermarket and other shops and eateries.

For classic Kiwi holiday right by the sea, you simply must check out The Beach Bach!

Fabulous location at Waikanae Beach. A cosy, character bach.

Stayed November 2021

Second time staying at this cute amazing Bach, close to the beach and cafes thoroughly enjoyed our stay again. Flew the kites and played baseball, great indoor things to do as well.

Stayed October 2021

Absolutely loved your place it was quirky and modern, we loved it so much we are coming back in November, the kites were a great thing for the kids and the outdoor is perfect for those Spring nights. The upstairs balcony was great for private sun bathing my teens loved it. The outdoor sleeping is perfect for the kids give us adults some quiet relaxation time, To top it off the huge spa bath was so lovely to end your beachy day. Thank you for the great stay 😊

Stayed January 2021

Great location and so close to the beach - loved having our own access to and from the beach. The Bach is small but has everything you need. The outdoor shower was a great addition and was well used during our stay.

Stayed January 2021

Thank you for a great property and generous facilities (specifically the coffee machine, the outdoor fireplace and bbq). Walking out the back gate and over the dunes to the beach was such a treat, and the lookout verandah (sunset bar!) was lovely when it was getting hot in the courtyard. We loved our stay and family time and will be back!

Lovely authentic little kiwi beach Bach, outdoor shower after swimming in the sea, great access to beach and shops. Our family with young children loved our stay.

Stayed December 2020

Tutere St is the perfect location for a family with kids. Beach, playground and cafe all within 5 minutes walk. Comfy beds with fluffy feather duvets and bedside lamps for reading. Log burner for chilly days and outdoor fire for moonlit nights. Small but charming and plenty of outdoor places to investigate.

Stayed November 2020

Great location and lovely spot for a break.
