'Good Times and Tan Lines' pulls out all the stops to make the ideal Waihi Beach family bach!

Each morning wake up and step out onto the deck for a morning stretch, some fresh air and a good cup of coffee, from the coffee machine.

Fill your days with walks to the beach just 2-minutes from the front door, wandering down to the vibrant Waihi Beach village to explore or enjoying some downtime with the family. Good Times and Tan Lines is truly a family friendly bach on a quiet cul de sac, with a kids playroom, loads of board games, a paddling pool, outdoor swing ball set, nerf super soakers, boggie boards, plenty of flat lawn space and your furry family pet is welcome to come as well.

You won't miss out on the comforts of home; this holiday home comes with air-conditioning, a BBQ, bikes, room enough to park the boat and a covered deck out the back to enjoy some shelter out the sun.

With five bedrooms and three bathrooms included, everyone will have their own spot for holiday R & R. The modern kitchen is just waiting for you to show off your culinary prowess with those delicious holiday meals. When the dishes are in the dishwasher, enjoy putting your feet up on the deck in the evening air with a glass of wine.

Good Times and Tan Lines is waiting to host your next Waihi Beach escape!

Guest reviews for Good Times and Tan Lines

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed June 2022

This was a clean house with lots of extras provided. Great for a large group of people. Would recommend.

Stayed May 2022

This was the perfect spot for a whole family to stay, including a toddler and an eight week old baby. The house worked really well for all of us and the three bathrooms was a bonus for the wedding prep on the Saturday!

Stayed March 2022

Property a couple of hundred metres from a lovely swimming spot at the end of the main beach. Great new Cafe on the waterfront a real enhancement for the area. Property itself is slightly 'advantageously' shown in the pictures; however modern bathrooms, great water pressure in the showers; comfortable beds; fairly well equipped kitchen (love the coffee machine!); comfortable living area. Thanks to the owners!

Stayed March 2022

Excellent property would recommend.

Stayed March 2022

The size of the house was great for four couples and the three bathrooms were great. However please fix broken things like the umbrella, which was needed as it was quite hot, but was broken so couldn’t use to its full potential. There was good parking for all vehicles. Most things were there that you needed. But NO WiFi, to be fair it did say no WIFI but did not notice as would never expect a place not to have WIFi, the big modem was there we just couldn’t use it. Also not sure the place was cleaned before we moved in as it was a bit grubby. Over all though a good property close to the beach, just needs a good clean and to fix a couple of things. We would stay again.

Thank you for the review, Sue! We're glad you enjoyed your stay at Good times and Tan Lines. We're sorry to hear you didn't notice the listing doesn't advertise WIFI and will recommend this to the property owners. We'll also look into repairing the umbrella, thank you for letting us know! Regarding cleaning, We had cleaned prior to your stay and are sorry if there were aspects of the cleaning that weren't up to the right standard. We're addressing this as well, of course.

Stayed March 2022

Fabulous holiday house for a big group of people near the beach and shops. Lots of great memories were made. We will be back!

Stayed December 2021

This is a fantastic place to stay for a group of adults and kids. The kids playroom is a bonus! Fabulous location with a very short stroll to the beach and the township. Endless hot water for all 3 showers was awesome. Airconditioning in the main living also a bonus. The queen beds were very comfortable, the double beds were not. Two large decks lacked a bit of outdoor furniture but plenty of grassed areas (free of prickles) for kids play on. The kitchen is a bit limited for a crowd staying more than a few days, but the wine fridge was great and there are plenty of entertainers platters etc. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay overall.

Stayed July 2021

Awesome place and proximity to the beach. Will be back again.

Stayed April 2021

Should have towels, extra linen, wifi, clean the property as it was very dusty. There were no soap, extra towels and beach towels. We had to buy lots of things just for 2 nights.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your review Rajv. At Bachcare we pride ourselves on our properties being sparkling clean and we're sorry that your experience did not meet our usual high standards on this occasion. We did provide linen for your stay, however, should you have required more our Holiday Manager would have been happy to provide additional. We will take a look through the supplies to make sure it is sufficiently stocked. We do hope you enjoyed your time in Waihi Beach.

Fantastic family bach. Spacious. Well laid out. Kids loved the play room and the awesome back yard!

Stayed June 2020

This property was great for our big group with enough beds, bathrooms and space for everyone. It was lovely and clean and had been well decorated which meant it was a nice space to be in. The kitchen was slightly limited when it came to catering for a large group. There was also access to lots of equipment for the kids which was perfect.

Stayed May 2020

Wow we loved our stay here we didnt want to leave. We had everything we needed for a family get together. The beds were comfy the home was warm. The showers were amazing, we loved having 3 bathrooms. We especially loved the family orientated feel with the play room for the kids and games we could play. My 5yr old granddaughter wanted to stay forever and my kids loved the coffee machine. We would definitely return.

Stayed March 2020

A lovely home that catered for our needs really well. We were there for our daughter's wedding. The fact that we had 3 bathrooms getting ready was a real bonus and we had everything we needed. A very comfortable and enjoyable stay.

Stayed March 2020

Wonderful stay at this Bach which has everything you need for a great holiday. Especially loved the toys, bikes and body boards (and coffee machine!).

Stayed January 2020

Fantastic property, excellent central location a short walk to the shops and the beach. Plenty of kids toys kept our kids aged 1-5yrs old entertained. Clean and tidy, great outdoor area with a huge tree for shade. Wine fridge and coffee machine an added bonus. Comfortable beds and great shower pressure. We throughly enjoyed our stay.

Stayed December 2019

This is a great house for a weekend get together for families with wonderful facilities, especially the 3 bathrooms.

Stayed November 2019

Thank you for a wonderful experience, we enjoyed a family get together for a 70th Birthday - the perfect place to make memories. We loved the modern, simple decor. Each room was fresh and inviting. The kids loved the tree swing and climbing wall. We enjoyed the morning sun on the back deck and the afternoon sun on the front. The lawns were well manicured and prickle free - which the kids loved. A very quick stroll and your at the beach, and only 10 minutes to the main street and shops. We will be back!

Stayed August 2019

Highly recommend! Clean, beautiful house - just a short walk to the beach!

Stayed August 2019

Great place to stay, the house is clean & comfortable, easy to stay in & location is great, will stay again.

Stayed May 2019

We really enjoyed our stay here, the location is perfect close to beach & shops. If you wish you can arrive & park the car up for the duration of your stay.There is ample space in the house. It’s very clean & comfortable to be in. A lot of thought has been put into making this beach house an inviting & relaxing place to stay in. If your a family with young children or a group of mature adults this is the place for y’all.

Stayed April 2019

This house is beautiful. Lovely and clean, lots of room and bathrooms for everyone. Perfect walking distance to both the beach and town.

Stayed November 2018

A lovely and well-decorated house in a good location. Very short walk to the beach and a great backyard for kids. Perfect for families with lots of toys for the kids. Would be great to get some outdoor furniture to enjoy the beautiful porches.
