This Kuaotunu holiday home is a comfortable, kiwi style bach in a serene setting. The fireplace is on hand for cooler stays, and generous windows offer brilliant beach views.

Watch the Dolphins and Orcas in the bay from the patio while you enjoy a BBQ, or head out for a day on the water with boat parking onsite and the boat ramp just 1km away. Bring home the catch of the day to cook on the BBQ!

Stayed December 2021

Perfect spot for a peaceful break.

Stayed August 2021

Lovely location and enjoyed the view. It's right on the beach. It's also a short walk to a cafe and pizza place for food. The pizza Place Lukes kitchen not open everyday mainly just weekends in winter so check their website. The manager of the bach was great. She was very welcoming and bought us firewood when we were running low. Thank you

Stayed July 2021

Fantastic property and location. Great communication! We had to cut short our stay due to an unforseen circumstance however the property manager was fantastic to deal with. We will be coming back 100%

Stayed April 2021

A nice little bach, very sunny with a lovely view.

Stayed February 2021

We had an amazing 10 days at the Wai Whare, and loved every minute of it. As a home away from home it could not have been improved. Every amenity had been provided, every comfort anticipated. We loved the old NZ bach feel about the house - being unrenovated was a plus - it added to the beachside atmosphere. To sit on the deck and survey the wide blue ocean over a cold drink and dinner; to wander the minute down to the water; swim and play and then de-saltify under the outdoor shower; to feast on ripe peaches and figs from the garden; to walk the long sweep of golden sand; sleep peacefully to the sound of crickets. All this was such a privilege, and we hope to return.

Stayed January 2021

As described, lovely view and great position. Nice to be able to have dogs on the property.

Stayed January 2021

Beautiful position and view from house - a quick walk to a safe fun each. Clean, tidy home - contained everything we needed. Thanks so much.

Stayed December 2020

We really loved this location with the view and access to the beach, while also being near the little village. The house was very tidy, clean and well maintained. We liked that it hadn't been modernised. Comfortable main bed and spacious bedroom. Enough space for a family of 4.

Stayed November 2020

One of our fav spots - that’s why we keep coming back!

Stayed October 2020

A home away from home in an amazing location. Basic needs met to be able to have a comfortable stay. Yummy coffee and food a short walk away and a beautiful beach to walk along anytime of the year. A place we are lucky to be able to use.

Stayed September 2020

Great views Great access to Beach. Fully stocked shop 2 minute walk. Really good local walks. We'll worth staying here.

Stayed September 2020

One of the nicest baches we have stayed at. Simple and basic but modern appliances, clean and tidy, plenty of bedding and the fireplace was a treat! The view is perfect and the proximity to shops and restaurant made life very easy.

Stayed March 2020

Lovely lovely house, simple, and excellently situated, and I keep coming back year after year!

Stayed January 2020

So, so close to the water, waves lapping around yours thoughts of your day before sleeping.

Stayed January 2020

The property was very well located, comfortable but quite basic in terms of quality of equipment. However it met our needs for a family beach holiday very well.

Stayed December 2019

the access to the beach is the highlight of the house. The house is old but comfy and looked after. The kitchen provides all the necessary equipment. extra matresses are available for the kids so we could comfortably accommodate 4 adults and 2 kids. it is a 5 mins walk to Luke's kitchen, a nice pizzaria + with craft beer and live music!

Stayed November 2019

A comfortable property well maintained and managed

Stayed November 2019

Great location, we enjoyed the books and puzzles, just be a bit careful when you light the BBQ! A classic bach and a most enjoyable stay. Thank you!

Bachcare replied

Happy to hear you had a lovely stay. We have added a note to the guest compendium on how to light the BBQ.

Stayed November 2019

The property is located a few meters from the sea, a large and spacious house, has everything it takes to make your vacation amazing. We had great fun, I wish we could continue our stay

Stayed March 2019

We had an awesome stay, perfect location and the house has a lovely homely feel. Great spot by the beach.

Stayed May 2018

Awesome bach with everything we needed, loved how close to the beach and pizza restaurant it was and will/have recommended to all my friends and family.

Stayed March 2018

I rate this place as Excellent because it is a true bach; it has a heap of comforts, but is not too flash so that you don't feel you can relax - you can! The view from the rooms and the deck across the lawn and the sand dunes to the sea are brilliant. I will return and return...
