Stayed March 2021

Clean tidy everything you need. Great veiw close to beach. Rooms smaller than expected

Stayed October 2020

It is a great home. Lovely decor and sweet But it’s a hot summer holiday home. Or retreat for two - at least in my view. Well provisioned - at least I suspect it usually is. We had two empty gas bottles and an overflowing bin. 4 of us slept in the house and the rooms are very, very tight - no room for bags. Outhouse is lovely

Stayed September 2020

If your looking for an authentic kiwi bach then this is the one for you. Close to Waihi Beach with a huge front yard. and cute as sleep out. Definitely suited for the summner months.

Stayed March 2020

Awesome place and great manager

Stayed January 2020

A perfectly formed beach house. Charming with lots of character but with a well appointed modern kitchen and a fresh lovely bathroom. Gorgeously decorated and styled but also a very practical bach for the beach. Small but with lots of indoor and out door nooks and options for being on your own or with others. Excellent location being so close to the beach and within an easy walk to Wilson Rd shops and eateries. I really loved my stay here.

Stayed November 2019

Clean, tidy and cosy property. Perfect beach stay.

Stayed February 2019

A lovely clean, older style bach with modern kitchen and bathroom. Easy walking distance to beach and close to shops and cafes. Loved it.
