About this Holiday House

The Lazy Oar is the quintessential seaside kiwi bach. An extremely relaxing and comfortable space that boasts all the mod cons without losing that special bach feel. Right on the point of Kakanui township with stunning views over the ever changing reef and ocean. Gather paua and explore the rockpools only 50m from the front deck, 500m along the coast to the south is one of Otago's best sandy surf beaches and 500m to the North is the Kakanui river, estuary and boat sheds. With two large lounges, a large outdoor decking and bbq area, and 3 good sized bedrooms (two with bunks) there is plenty of space even for larger groups. The property is very child and pet friendly. The kitchen is relatively modern with gas hobs, plenty of fridge space and a new dishwasher and oven. Dinning is comfortable with stunning views from a built in booth. The primary lounge has an LCD TV and a large log burner. The day lounge has large sliding doors out to a big deck and views.

Great location. Older house but clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Great breakfast nook sunny and sea views. Good shower, comfy beds, what more do you need. Well apart from the deck and bbq area. We will be back.
Awesome kiwi Bach. Had a true Bach feel but also with mod cons to make for a comfortable stay. Amazing views and perfect beach front location. Our kids had a ball, we got fresh paua for dinner, enjoyed the beaches and many walks. Great layout for families. We would love to go back one day we loved the area so much. It was a very relaxing stay and the host was so friendly and welcoming with extra touches such as a note and treats :)
