    “This Bach had a great view of the beach up on the hill, and had a nice cozy vibe about it.”

    It is quite basic, but still kept well. However it felt like we were their first visitors for the season and a few things didn't go well. The key code was wrong for the lockbox, and being public holiday it took over 30 minutes for bachcare to pick up and assist us in getting in. Once answered, the representative was very kind and apologetic and was pretty quick to resolve this issue.

    It is quite basic, but still kept well. However it felt like we were their first visitors for the season and a few things didn't go well. The key code was wrong for the lockbox, and being public holiday it took over 30 minutes for bachcare to pick up and assist us in getting in. Once answered, the representative was very kind and apologetic and was pretty quick to resolve this issue. Once inside we dropped things and walked down to the beach, returning just before sunset hoping for a warm shower, but the boiler was not on and being electric and with an unusual switch, we weren't sure if it was on or not, so we waited for an hour for the quite large tank to heat up. We did email the bachcare that night in case we were unable to resolve the issue by morning, but never heard back from them. Finally, the freezer has a bit of a mess and was just one more unfortunate thing. Normally, I would understand the beginning of the season being hectic, but this was meant to be the final and most relaxing stop for a vacation I planned for my parents, and I thought this spot would be just that as was reflected in the price we paid. But it was just overall a nice place with several frustrating and time consuming issues that we were left with. I have no doubt that once back in the swing of things, this house will be a fine place to stay.

    Hi Jake. Thank you for leaving a review for your recent stay with us at Beach House on the Ridge. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your holiday spent here and that even with the issues mentioned your review score was positive. It is disappointing to hear of the lockbox issue, which will be investigated with our local team. There has also been negligence on our part in not preparing the property completely before your check-in, which has now led to a revision in our process. The communication you have received around these issues could have been handled with more urgency, however should not have been needed in the first place. We really do appreciate your feedback here and have shared these comments with both our local team and the property owners. With these issues addressed, we look forward to hosting you again in future. Bachcare

The property

Perched well to enjoy some lovely views over Kaiteriteri beach and the bay is where you'll find Beach House on the Ridge. This classic kiwi bach has open plan living, ideal for an easy summer escape, with a kitchen equipped with all the essentials. The decking surrounds most of the house so no matter the time of day you'll be able to catch some fresh air and sunshine. Both bedrooms are fitted with queen beds. Make the most of the location as you will be just a 4-minute walk from Little Kaiteriteri beach, a less than a 10mins walk to the local store, cafes and bars. Visit the numerous vineyards and wineries, potters, sculptors, carvers and artists for which the Nelson-Tasman region is very well known. Excellent brown trout fishing is available in either Riwaka River (6 km) or Motueka River (11 km) as well as in the numerous rivers of Golden Bay. The spectacular limestone caves on the Takaka Hill are worth visiting on a day trip. Kayaks and sailboats can be rented on the Kaiteriteri beach, and guided kayak trips into Abel Tasman National Park can also be arranged. Beach House on the Ridge is a warm and welcoming holiday home waiting to host your next trip to Kaiteriteri.

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.
