Sheets, towels, soap, tea and coffee are provided, and there’s free wireless broadband” "Thank-you so much for letting us share your lovely spot. Words cannot express how wonderful your secret location is! The pictures on your website are an indication of what you are going to experience but when you actually stand and take in the surroundings it is even better" SUNDAY STAR TIMES review “If you want a chill-out place, this is it. The views of the sea, river and Mt Taranaki in the background (on a clear day) are amazing. Bach54 would be the place to relax at any time of the year. This old-style bach has been renovated to be modern and still cosy. The rooms are beautifully decorated. Everything is clean. The garden is beautiful and spacious. The owners are friendly and helpful and they have thought of everything that a guest might need. Definitely on my list of places to come back to” THE BREEZE RADIO STATION: Our relationship with Bach54 is a valued one. They offer the kind of experience that our listeners are after, so it is a perfect match for us. They are friendly and helpful; nothing is ever too much trouble. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Bach54 on our Easy Escape weekend promotion, with the help of Bach54 it was hugely successful.

A well-maintained bach with everything you need for a pleasant stay. The view of Mt Taranaki from the bach is beautiful on a clear day. Carol is a wonderful host and is always a text away if you need anything. She told me that it was going to be a bit chilly on our arrival date and had the fireplace going on when we reached the bach. Very quick to respond to the emails. Overall, we enjoyed our little stay at the Bach54.

Mokau is an evocative place and Bach 54 is an ideal place to appreciate its charm. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Bach 54. It is comfortable, well equipped, has lovely views across the river mouth and the Taranaki bight and, something to cherish in winter temperatures, a great fire place. Definitely recommended.
This is a fantastic retreat. Carol was great in setting us up and everything you could want was on hand. The views are to die for and the tranquility is a salve for the city scarred soul.
