About this Holiday House

The name says it all. Why Worry? Stunning location, and the quintessential Kiwi holiday home mean your holiday in the Catlins will be as relaxing, or as eventful as you need. The two bedroom house is right on the beach. Sun drenched, with a large outside deck overlooking the beach, bay window out front, the house is set up for family fun, or just a quiet weekend away. Jacks Bay is in the heart of the Catlins, and is 10 minutes drive from the main town of Owaka. It is an ideal location as a base for your exploring, or you can relax and stay in the bay itself, with a great walk to the Jacks Bay Blowhole, spotting the seals and penguins coming up on the beach, through to fishing and gathering Paua or Mussels. The beach is also ideal for swimming and body boarding with a gentle slope making it safe for young and old. The house is the classic kiwi crib. Tidy and warm, with some quirky touches, everyone that goes to Wai Wuri falls in love with it. The large main bedroom has one queen bed, and a set of bunks if needed. Lying in bed, you get the perfect view out over the beach. The bedroom also contains a second TV and a Playstation, letting the kids relax after a busy day, and allowing Mum and Dad to have some quiet time soaking in the sunset in the lounge or on the deck. The second smaller bedroom has a bunk, with a double bed at the base, and a single at the top. The shelves are stacked with books and games, as well as TV / DVD with freeview and a stack of DVD's, and a new wood fire will ensure if the weather turns bad, you will be cosy and entertained. We have set this up as our ideal holiday home. We are sure you will love it as much as we do.

This is a fantastic house at a fantastic beachfront location. Everything you need is here. If you're after a 5-star experience, this isn't for you. But if you are looking for a nostalgic Kiwi bach/crib experience, this is perfect. Thanks so much to the owners for opening their holiday home for people like me to enjoy. I'm keen to come back one day.
The house has a welcoming, warm atmosphere. We especially enjoyed the views on the beach with sea lions right from the bedroom or the living room bay windows! The location is great - we want to come back! Thank you for the friendly communication!
What a wonderful holiday we had!! Nice and tidy, comfortable and clean. Lots to do even on the rainy days. Very friendly and obliging hosts. Thanks we will be back!!
