“It’s exactly what it says on the tin.”
Me and my kids just loved it! It’s nice and tidy. I hope it keeps the same vibes as it reminds me of my childhood memories at my grandparents bach. We are definitely rebooking for next year. Neighbours are really nice also.

“This holiday home was nice!”
It accommodated 3 adults and 1 med size dog, I do have to say that the stove and oven needs to be updated the oven is too complicated the 2 PowerPoints on the stove don't go.. but lucky we had family staying not that far from where we were so we were able to cook in there oven and enjoy a big family feast together, also where the key is it does take abit to retrieve them.. but on the whole it was adequate for what we were after, we are use to having a wood burner going therefore absolutely enjoyed snuggling down after a catch up family day out to a lovely fire, thank you.- Godfrey, June 2023
“Weren’t given the option for wifi.”
House was generally warm but chilly in mornings. Options other than fireplace.- Simon, April 2023
“Had to change houses to this one because original choice was uninhabitable.”
Beachcare changed us to this one. Nice quaint little cottage, well equipped, all areas clean and tidy except for lounging area where amount of animal hair was not good, floor and couch. Vacuumed after arrived to make it acceptable. Enjoyed our stay, nice view, and sun pouring in in the mornings.- Bruce, March 2023
Thank you for your review Bruce, we are sorry to hear there were issues with animal hair at our property. We have addressed this with our local team and how to ensure this doesn't happen for future guests. Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback as we are always working on improving the care of our properties. Property Owner
“We loved staying at the cottage - it’s small but well laid out.”
We especially liked the separation on the shower, toilet and sink. The deck is wonderful, with views across the lake. It’s very private and only a short walk to the shop. We would definitely stay again.- Karen, December 2022
“Great relaxing and recommended”- dave, February 2022
“The bach was an ideal get away from it all.”
There is only a local store and a take way that you need to pre-order. It was very dog friendly. We would definitely come back!- Bryony, January 2022
“Good price and location.”
Warm and cozy. Requires a bit of maintenance so if you don't mind the odd squeaky door you will enjoy your stay.- Stephen, July 2020
“Great retro bach.”
everything we needed- Lorraine, October 2019
“Had a great stay, quite a small house but good for a weekend away.”- Andrew, May 2019
“A lovely, low-key bach, we had a great time staying and exploring the area.”
Our two small children loved the bunk beds, and made the most of running around the big back lawn with our dog. There was easy access to the lake, and not far to the local playground and park. The home is well equipped, and the log fire and big stack of firewood was much appreciated! We would happily stay again.- Georgina, April 2019

Welcome to Kenshaw Cottage, a classic kiwi bach with lake views from the deck. Tucked away in peaceful Omori, this is a great place to escape from the big smoke and recharge the batteries. Tidy and bright with fun retro styling, Kenshaw Cottage is a great "off-the-grid" weekend away for couples or small families. There is an old-school radio and plenty of books and games to keep the kids entertained, plus the large grassy yard perfect for backyard cricket! With plenty of space to park the boat, Kenshaw Cottage is ideal for keen fishers and water lovers, as you can be on the lake's edge or boat ramp in just a 2-minute drive! The BBQ is on hand back at home base to cook up the catch of the day and enjoy a meal with your group on the deck. Enjoy a laidback stay in a slice of Kiwiana paradise at Kenshaw Cottage!
