LeighStayed July 2022
Great place to stay. Easy walk to the beach and a wonderful laid back bach vibe. We loved that we could have our dogs with us and feel relaxed. Thanks.
MichaelStayed July 2022
There’s a definite charm and privacy to the place. Care has been taken to present the bach in the best way possible. It’s just the steps downstairs made me wish I was the size of a hobbit. As such I only went there to use the bathroom. The deck is great.

KimStayed April 2022
Super tidy, super comfortable bach with everything you need. Location is perfect for easy missions to beautiful beaches, great walks and eateries. We'll definitely stay again!
NicholasStayed January 2021
Lovely traditional bach with character and fabulous views across Piha. The property is in walking distance of the beach, RSA and the Domain and is ideal for a couple with a child. Would definitely stay there again.
RozStayed January 2021
Just returned from a lovely 3 night stay. This home was just perfect, great location, super cosy and lots of essentials already there. I'd seen the comments about the stairs but to me they're what you expect from a Bach - steep but short and not intimidating .. the dogs managed them no problem :)
NoahStayed August 2020
This lovely little house in Piha was quiet, cozy, warm, and just what we needed for a weekend away. Access to the house was easy, and everything was as advertised. Thank you for a lovely stay.

JaimeStayed November 2019
Private, traditional kiwi bach in a beautiful location. Its an easy walk to the cafe and store, the view is very scenic with the forested ridge line and peaks of ocean from the deck. Lots of native wildlife and the local community has a great relaxed 'island time' feel about it.
KaylaStayed October 2019
Great stay! The view and balcony is amazing and we loved being able to have breakfast accompanied by native birds in the trees. The staircase is a bit intimidating, especially with a 5 month old, but totally fine in the end. Thanks for a wonderful time.
Thank you for your lovely comments Kayla! Yes, we like to warn our guests of the narrow, steep stairs on the listing just so everyone's aware, but we're glad to hear this didn't put a damper on an amazing stay! Hope to see you again soon!

Great bach stay - lovely house.
Ji-yeonStayed June 2019
The cottage was clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We loved the wonderful seaview and easy access to the beach. I'd like to mention that the stairs are fairly steep.
Hi Ji-yeon! Thank you for your feedback and it's so nice to hear you had a lovely stay! Yes, you're right! The stairs are rather steep as we like to advise guests on the listing so that care is taken when used. We hope to see you guys again in the future!
LucyStayed June 2019
We really loved everything about this cottage: the sun-drenched deck and lounge, proximity to the beach, the fantastic views, great kitchen, comfortable bed and lovely garden. It was very cosy and clean and cute!
