About this Holiday House

PLEASE NOTE THIS HOUSE IS NOT RENTED BETWEEN MAY AND AUGUST A traditional rustic kiwi bach with gorgeous ocean views, beach access, large garden and play area and an outside bath. 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, hammock and a bath with ocean views. We do not supply linen unless arranged PLEASE NOTE: 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. The cleanliness of the house usually depends on the previous tenents...it is not always spotless.

Special Amenities

Views out to the ocean from the outside bath 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 two playgrounds. Many great nature walks close by. Eight minute drive to Cheviot for supplies. There is an amp and an ipod, cd, phone jack for playing your own music.....also...The stereo is an amp so needs you to plug in your music device. Take a cable in case ours has disappeared. The BBQ is a small gas one. The fire wood pile gets depleted so quickly that I can't be sure of how much will be there at any particular visit. If you think you want to light the fire it may be best to take some wood or collect small pieces of wood from the beach. There is a meter drop from the deck which is over foliage - it is not suitable for babies or toddlers.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

Water sports - surfing, sea kayaking, boogie boarding, kite surfing. Fishing at the Hurunui River. Nature walks. Galleries, restaurants and cafes in Cheviot. Tennis courts.

What a lovely old quintessential Kiwi Bach with an ever changing vista. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had all the basics we needed. We enjoyed our stay and despite the rain, wind, and clouds it was a relaxing time. Thank you, Sandy
