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.

Stayed February 2020

Great little Bach x love that it is pet friendly ❤️

Stayed 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.

Stayed 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.

Bachcare replied

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!

Stayed July 2019

Lovely spot, fab sun, and cosy. Very nicely presented.

Stayed 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.

Bachcare replied

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!

Stayed June 2019

Stayed 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!
