About this Holiday House

This original 4-bedroom 1940s bach (one of the first in Whangamata!) with all the charm of real old Kiwi summer baches, and with plenty of living indoors and out. Low key, warm and friendly, it's been a magnet for families for over 35 years. The Whangamata bach features a generous deck in front that catches glimpses of the sea and is shaded by the ancient pohutukawa tree for outdoor meals or lounging, while a smaller porch with sofa is the perfect napping spot. A deck off the kitchen is the sunset cocktail centre, easy to supervise the barbecue chef. Under the pohutukawa tree there's room for all the deck chairs, a chair hammock and regular one, so there is no arguing over lounging pozzies. The stainless steel and rimu kitchen has enough room for two cooks to work happily together, with a modern stove and fridge freezer, plenty of good pots and pans, and a microwave. No dishwasher, that's the family-bonding time for the kids. In summer there is a herb garden going for family and guests. Living room and four indoor bedrooms have charming vintage style. Master double bedroom has en-suite bathroom with a tub for bathing small folks plus laundry. Second bathroom includes shower and separate toilet. Guest accommodation includes a second double bedroom, a bedroom with 3 singles and 2 rollaways, and a cosy single room. The shelves are stacked with games, books (including vintage sets of Agatha Christie and Dick Francis), toys for the kids and a radio. The garage has boogie boards,sand and fishing toys, boules and croquet, and the most novel beer fridge in town. Outdoor shower, solar powered (that's a hose, in the sun) for rinsing off, and plenty of room on the double section to fit both cars and the essential cricket games. Park the car and jump on the two old-fashioned bicycles to pedal around town (plus one kid's bike). Cross the road to the beach, wander 100 m to the Surf Club or Blackie's coffee. Head over to the estuary for quiet paddle. It's the perfect set up for two families with small kids, but equally cosy for winter weekends for two. The slice of history is waiting for future memories.....
