About this Holiday House

PLEASE NOTE THIS HOUSE IS NOT RENTED BETWEEN MAY AND SEPTEMBER. A traditional rustic kiwi bach with gorgeous ocean views, beach access, large garden and play area. Perfect for a summer holiday with family or friends or a weekend away. Its greatest appeal is the simple bach lifestyle it offers with lots of outside seating and playing areas, boogie boards and a hammock. Bunk, single that pulls out to king, double in master bedroom. Is most comfortable for 4 to 5 people. We do not supply linen. A few quirks to please NOTE: There are large natural stone steps up to the house so visitors need to be able to manage the uneven surface. They can be slippery when wet please be aware there is also a drop of about 2 meters into the garden from the deck. Also one of the group may need to lift and change a gas bottle if need be. And….When we say 'traditional' we mean 'old' so if you require fancy and flash this is not the place for you. It is basic but we think it is heavenly and it should have everything u need. The cleanliness of the house usually depends on the previous tenants ...it is not always spotless. Also…there is no internet which makes it perfect!

Views out to the ocean from the lounge and master bedroom. Beach access. Bird song. Huge garden for playing and pitching tents (extra fee, please enquire). Lots of children's books and games and videos. Two minute walk to tennis courts, and table tennis tables and two playgrounds. Many great nature walks close by. Eight minute drive to Cheviot for supplies. The BBQ is a small gas one - baby Weber. There is an outside bath with beach views but I cannot guarantee its cleanliness or that it will empty properly. There is a meter drop from the deck which is over foliage.

Fabulous wee place with stunning view. My idea of a great, low key, kickback bach with everything I needed. Would definitely stay again.

Loved our time at Oceanview, what a wee gem, especially watching the sunrise over sea. Everything we needed was there, loved the crib the cosy fire was a bonus. Thanks for making it available and easy to stay at. Felt like a true kiwi holiday.
