Pet Friendly Inside Welcome
Carmen's Beachside Bach is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom Waihi Beach bach. Located along the white sands of Waihi Beach in the Bay of Plenty, this is a popular location for beach goers who love sunshine and surf all summer long. The positioning of the bach could not get any better, with the beach just a few steps away!
This Waihi Beach bach features Wi-Fi, double bedrooms and 2 living areas to ensure everyone enjoys their space! The open plan living flows onto the genrous decking where you can sit back and take in the absolute beachfront views!
The bedding configuration at this Waihi Beach Accommodation is comprised of 3 bedrooms plus the second living area. Bedroom 1 is fitted with a king bed, bedroom 2 is fitted with a double bed, and bedroom 3 is fitted with a double bed and 1 single bunk set. Additional sleeping is provided in the second living area with a single bed and a sofa bed.
The back garden is big enough for a game of cricket and if it's raining there is a foosball table in the garage!
Waihi Beach is known as the safest surf beach in New Zealand, with a slow sloping beach meaning its safe for even littilies to paddle most of the time. There are great walks, a Farmers Market, and the shops are within walking distance. The bach is a few doors from the Flat White Cafe, which does great coffee and cuisine.
Wake up with the surf at your front deck...it's absolutely sublime!

An old fashioned bach with a fantastic location. It has everything one needs when on holiday and although dated everyone in our family loved its quirkiness.

Not good for family holidays
Thank you for your feedback Amitesh. We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy everything about your stay. We do think this property is great for families as it has games, bunks, a great back yard and Wifi!

I loved the commercially provided linen. crisp white cotton sheets a delight. Clean white towels, smell fresh, a fantastic service. Right on the Beach, with great cafe 2 minutes away. Perfect location.

This is a great place to stay - excellent location! The bach had everything we needed. Really enjoyed being able to hear and see the sea from the house. Lovely sitting on the deck! Also great to be so close to an excellent cafe.

This great Bach suited us so well, warm & cosy with very comfortable beds. Loved having the fire as the evenings were cold and waking up to the sound of the sea and sunshine, bliss

DavidStayed May 2019
This place is fantastic! So close to the sand and also right next to great food and coffee so location is awesome. Has a great Bach feel which is great
AmberStayed March 2019
Magical! The absolute beachfront location made this place an awesome location for our family holiday. The property is tired but typical of its age and presented neatly enough. The layout was great for us to have a family space with another couple in a separate area. The bach is well stocked with plenty for the kids to do. Our property manager was friendly and easy to deal with. We'll be back :)
GuyStayed January 2019

Location outstanding, quintessential kiwi Bach at its best. Will definitely go again.
JosieStayed August 2018
Great house, well equipped, excellent location, we had sunshine and showers, and when we weren’t on the beach, were cosy by the wood fire and the children had a great choice of games. Will definitely find a time to go again.
AimeeStayed June 2018
Was a great bach to stay in! Had all of the essentials and amazing location. Wifi didn't work when we were there which may have been the only downside but didn't take away from the house!
We're sorry to hear about the wifi! Please always get in touch with your local holiday manager if an amenity is temporarily unavailable, as we'll do what we can to help.
