Beautiful location makes up for other issues, including friends of owners (or so they said) partying on the front deck at midnight waking everyone up.

Location you cant beat it. Be prepared for an old bach though, whilst we have stayed here previously, outside has been added to with a shelter which is great for watching the view and plenty of outside seats. However it is an old bach and there is no water pressure so shower is just a trickle. If your happy staying in the olde beach bach then the location is priceless. Best boogie boarding beach in my view.

This is the Kiwi bach dream. On the functional side, it’s well equipped with everything we needed. It’s position on the lagoon is magic. We’ll be back.

It's all about location here, absolutely stunning!

This property was amazing!! Such a cool spot had everything and some board games to use extra water toilet paper etc just the extra that helped make it fantastic, heaps of room and storage space and two fridges and freezers were fantastic!! Loved everything about it
ToniStayed January 2021
Our third trip back, second at this house - two families, had enough beds for all, plenty of everything you need and house was lovely and clean when we got there. This is our slice of heaven, true kiwiana experience in Ocean Beach where you can go back in time and really feel the vibes of a place still untouched, without the crowds, with the beach just out the front door in a totally relaxed little bach. Dont ever change Ocean Beach......
JacquiStayed October 2020
Perfect for a group of friends away for a long weekend. Like having your very own spot in paradise with beach front access. Loved the wood burner which made the cooler nights nice and cozy. Open access to lagoon (wasnt clean enough to swim in) and beach. 2km walks along sandy beach right on your doorstep.

Fantastic location and an excellent retreat. Perfect holiday destination.
WendyStayed August 2020
My family and I were delighted to be able to relax in a true kiwi Bach that was just a stone's throw (or a ball throw for the dog) from the beautiful beach. An ideal place for sitting on the deck and admiring the amazing ocean or taking long walks on the beach. Furnishing and cupboard contents would not meet some peoples high standards, but we loved it!
MargaretStayed February 2020
Ideal holiday batch right on the beach front. Dog friendly which is an added bonus.
sallyStayed January 2020
On the photos, the property looks very nice and appealing. But this was not the case! The property is very old, it needs a refurbishing. It has cockroaches, spiders and mice inside the property. It also needs more than 1 electric fan during this hot summer as it gets very hot inside the bach. But it cools down at early hours of the morning. The carpet and couches is very worn out and very dirty to sit on - carpet and couches need to be replace. The price is quite expensive for this old worn out bach.
Thanks for your review Sally. We pride ourselves on our properties being sparkling clean, and we're sorry your experience did not meet our usual high standards. Unfortunately critters can be common in summer at properties that are in a semi rural setting, where there aren't many people there are often more bugs! We have passed on your valuable feedback to the property owner, and we hope to welcome you back sometime soon!
LeonStayed January 2020
Amazing spot right on the beach, well set up for our group of 5 adults and 2 children. Views from the deck were incredible, and Ocean Beach was paradise with so few people around. The only let down was the cleanliness - we had to give most of the lounge and kitchen area a good sweep and clean when we arrived.
Thanks for your review Leon. We're glad you enjoyed your time at Waipuka and the beautiful views from the property. We pride ourselves on our properties being sparkling clean, and we're sorry your experience did not meet our usual high standards on this occasion. We hope to see you again soon!

The location is great but for the price we expected a better maintained property. There was a notice that the windows fall out if you try and open them and the ranch slider was held closed with a piece of wood. On arrival the property wasn't clean.
Thanks for your review Kate. We pride ourselves on our properties being sparkling clean, and we're sorry your experience did not meet our usual high standards.

this bach ticked all the boxes, plenty of pots, pans etc. heaps of beds. Good fireplace for the cold nite, great location. great outdoor area. Great range of games, place did not disappoint
MargaretStayed February 2019
A lovely holiday batch right on the beach. Plenty of room. The house sleeps 6 people comfortably in the house with a further room outside which would sleep 6 more but there are no curtains to pull across at the window out there.
ToniStayed January 2019
Beautiful Ocean Beach ! we loved it, the bach was perfect for our extended family, heaps of beds, kitchen stocked with pots and pans, everything we needed so we didn't need to leave at all!. Shower had a great pressure ! we all were very aware of water restrictions so were very careful but there was always plenty of water available but Note to take own drinking water and you can't get Vodafone cell coverage there (spark only). So those were little hints about making your stay more comfortable, apart from that we awoke to a fantastic view every morning sitting on the deck, soaking up our Kiwi paradise of that Beach. The waves were awesome for boogie boarding, tried some surfcasting ! overall had a relaxing, wonderful holiday on this beautiful beach. We are definitely coming back ! Thank you for letting us stay.
LynneStayed May 2018
Beautiful area, comfortable, relaxed accommodation, and such a pleasure to be able to have our dogs with us.
MargaretStayed February 2018
Ideal situation for a beach holiday as the house is right on the beach. It is great to be able to take our little dog there and she loved it. We enjoyed it so much that we are already booked for next year
