A lovely cosy kiwi Bach. Has everything you need and an amazing view. The shower needs an upgrade but otherwise we loved it.

This was a great basic Bach so close to the lakeside trail and cosy/ well-equipped for family get togethers.

The J-Bach at Rainbow Point provided the perfect getaway location for us. We loved the original retro character of the bach and location so close to the lake. Great that we could take the family pooch with us well.

Stayed December 2018

Very comfortable place to stay., fabulous view., close to shop for milk n bread

Stayed November 2018

A great timeless Bach with awesome NZ Bach character. The bed was very comfortable. Everything you need to have a holiday provided incl plates and cooking accessories. The view is spectacular! A very short walk to the lake makes a very fun Bach to rent. Has a very homey welcoming vibe and although a small house, the yard is plenty big enough to share with family and great for the dog. The only downfall was no laundry but I don't think this is a biggie!! I would definitely stay here again.

If you're wanting a no-fuss, kiwi Bach experience, then The J Bach is the one! We loved the simplicity of this good old kiwi Bach. It had everything we needed and was surprisingly roomy inside. There's heaps of sleeping space for large tribes and plenty of room to pitch tents. But most of all.....the location and view are fantastic! In summertime, I can imagine spending the majority of your time outside enjoying the view of the lake and the proximity of lake. So close! But the best thing about this Bach, is being able to take your pet!! And I must mention that dealing with Susan was ridiculously easy! She was really friendly and just wanted us to have a lovely stay in The J Bach. She definitely went the extra mile for us and we appreciated it! Thank you Susan!

This property was clean and well equipped.The location was quiet and a stone's throw from the lake edge.
