Nice location great access to Farewell Spit, beds need replacing otherwise very comfortable. We would stay again

This older home is in a spot on in a great location for the top of Golden Bay although the home in our opinion is requiring some updates and more through cleaning to justify the price. Didn't appear that the home had been vacuumed upon arrival and was lacking a few creature comforts like a clean couch, coffee table and microwave. Also the home was very poorly marked and had to drive into someone elses drive guessing which home and where it was located (this could be fixed just by a heads up in the registration).

Great location for fishing Golden Bay with direct beach access. The beds need updating but overall the bach was very tidy and comfortable. On-site recycling and garbage was a plus!

Lovely location, a little hard to find but this adds to the privacy. Please beware that there is no TV, stereo or other item that can be used to entertain little children while cooking dinner, the drop off from the deck is also something to watch for if you are taking young children to this location. The rooms are spacious as is the lounge. There is easy access to the beach for walks, it could do with a more substantial heating source than the fan heater that is provided if you are intending to hire this in winter.

Great location. The bach is basic but had all we required for a summer weekend away.

Stayed August 2019

Great spot. Lovely Bach.

Stayed October 2018

The property is in a lovely, peaceful location with amazing views. We would have loved an outdoor seating area to make the most of this while having a BBQ. Unfortunately during the cold evenings there was no heat pump to keep warm. Also no reception or WiFi which is not ideal when you aren't expecting it. We do also suggest a microwave to be added to the kitchen for convenience. The beds were terrible and desperately need upgrading. The lounge could also do with more furnishings. Overall it was decent accommodation for a short stay.
