Petite and fuss-free, this gorgeous wee bach offers the perfect blend of classic Kiwi holiday and beach retreat. Welcome to The Little Blue Bach!

Bright and cosy living welcomes you to settle in and make yourself right at home. Open the doors and windows in the summertime to let a cool breeze flow through, and on a winter getaway the heatpump and woodburning fireplace provide toasty warmth and ambience.

A compact, yet fully equipped kitchen ensures you can prepare delicious meals during your stay, and complimentary WiFi, a Smart TV with DVD player, a foosball table, and a tonne of games and toys are on hand to keep you connected and entertained when you’re not at the beach.

The outdoor living spaces here at The Little Blue Bach are where the summer holiday vibe really comes to life. Grab a book and your favourite drink, nestle into the egg chair or a bean bag, and feel at ease knowing the kids are playing in a fully fenced yard. Later, fire up the BBQ for an alfresco feast, before soaking in the spa pool to top off a fantastic day with a bit of stargazing.

Two bedrooms comfortably sleep up to six guests here at The Little Blue Bach. The master bedroom is fitted with a queen bed and has two single trundler beds as well, while the second bedroom has a set of bunks. A family bathroom with tub completes the setup for your stay.

There’s plenty of space to park the boat here at The Little Blue Bach, so why not bring it along and launch for a day out from the boat ramp just two minutes' drive away.

The Little Blue Bach is perfectly located just a flat, five-minute walk from the beach; you literally just turn left out the gate and stroll! You’ll also be close to fish'n'chips for the classic Kiwi holiday dinner, the dairy for an ice-cream and the milk, and the Old Beach Deli and local restaurants for a meal out. If the kids want to burn off some steam, you’re also around the corner from the playground.

Your Waikanae Beach wonderland awaits at The Little Blue Bach!

This was a lovely little batch, cozy and warm. Our 5 year old loved playing with all the toys and we all enjoyed the spa.

Cute bach, good location and space, spa lovely. Would have been nice to have access to the garage and bikes.

Stayed May 2022

A lovely classic Bach style place. Great games for kids and a lovely back yard. Close to dairy and a great cafe. Shower is fabulous!

Stayed March 2022

The little blue bach is suitable for couples & families alike. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the property had a lovely charm about it. We enjoyed the use of the spa which made our stay more relaxing and special. We had everything we needed which made our stay stress free. We decided not to bring our doggo this time but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the peace and quiet lol. It was clean and comfortable. Just a small note to remember to take extra towels with you as we were stuck with the same towel for a weekend which wasn’t the best. Otherwise it was a great location, visiting Wainakae township which had everything you need pharmacy, supermarket, cafes and more. Loved the bean bags on the deck. Thank you to a special little gem.

Property was great - fully fenced and good outside spaces.

Stayed January 2022

Good distance to the beach and dairy. Needs maintenance and some love.

Stayed December 2021

Mixed bag - good location, spa and dog friendly. Bach feel but lack of care and attention - for the price

Bachcare replied

Thanks for your feedback and we are glad to hear you loved the location. We are sorry that not everything was quite up to standard and we will be working with our local team to make the necessary improvements.

The house was cute but not up to expectations- things looked shabby compared with the photos and the place needed a really good clean- the carpet in particular was filthy. I think it would be a nice place to bring kids as lots of outdoor space and toys. Could be a lovely place with some elbow grease and work to fix it up. Overpriced for what you get compared with other Waikanae beach properties

A lovely private Bach. Not posh but has all you need. Hot tub is lovely. So many walks or cycle rides right there. Two cafes close by. I was able to rake my dog and he was allowed inside. I loved my time there. Fully fenced.

Great location, about 5 minutes walk from the bach. It is a cute Kiwi bach with an awesome big yard and an amazing collection of games. Unfortunately, the spa was unusable, having been left filthy by the previous guests. Bachcare assured us this would be cleaned before we departed but this was not the case. We did receive some compensation but would have much preferred to be able to use the spa, since this was why we chose this property.

Bachcare replied

We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed this great location and well-equipped bach. The spa pool has since been serviced but so very sorry that we were unable to do this in time for your stay.

The place was tidy and great for our needs. Lovely big yard and lots of toys, games and equipment available. Great communication from manager Cecelia, who went the extra mile to return gear we had left behind. Many thanks Jocelyn

The bach is a good location and has a great outdoors area. Some improvements internally will make all the difference.

Stayed July 2021

Old school little gem of a bach - but with modern touches like smart TV, spa pool, and dishwasher. Very tidy and kids loved it (aged 2 and 4) - especially the boxes of Duplo and toys, flat garden, garden toys, and spa pool. We'd love to come back!

Stayed July 2021

Great place for families! Our kids really enjoyed the toys available and the spa. Easy to get to from Wellington. Good internet connection to keep in touch with work as required. Good location, lovely beach, easy drive to Nga Manu. We would love to come stay again.

Stayed July 2021

A bit if a mixed bag for our stay. The property is well equipped and has lots of toys and games which the kids loved. However, electrics are a concern. All the sockets are overloaded and the electrics had tripped before we arrived. I think the property manager had put heaters on for us but obviously these weren't on as electrics had trioped so house was freezing and everytime we tried to put more than 2 heaters on the electrics tripped again so took ages to heat the house through. The spa pool also wasn't up to temperature the day we arrived so couldn't use it the first day which was disappointing. Once heated it was lovely though.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your feedback, Nicola! We're glad to hear you had a nice time at The Little Blue Bach and that the children enjoyed what it has to offer. Thank you for your comments regarding the electrics; we're working with the property owners on this to ensure it is duly addressed for future bookings. We're sorry to hear the spa pool took a bit to heat up after its cleaning and are glad that once it did you had the chance to enjoy it
