About this Holiday House

[Greek; pron. para dei sos - paradise] Our bright, tidy and comfortable 2 bedroom Golden Bay bach is situated on the beachfront in Parapara. With fantastic privacy from both the road and the beach, you can relax and play in the spacious beachside backyard whilst still enjoying the glorious sea view from the living areas & deck! Located 20 minutes from Takaka, 5 minutes from Collingwood and next to a beach access reserve, you can really appreciate the tranquil setting, the sand between your toes, a swim, a kayak and of course some fishing. A perfect no-fuss well-equipped beach house for warm days or a cosy wood fire lit private retreat for those cooler days. Highlights: - Private setting with direct access to the beach - Spacious garden with lawn & established plants and shrubs - Beachside deck with deck chairs - Log burner with wood supplied - Well equipped kitchen - Fresh and bright living/dining areas with views - Bedroom ceiling fans with summer & winter settings - Off-street parking with space for 2 cars - Local and attentive property manager

This is a fabulous bach for any time of the year. Great location on the beach, very private and really well equipped. Highly recommend this as a great place to base yourself in the Bay any time of the year. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will be back as soon as we can!

A lovely tidy and clean home right by the beach. You could sit inside by the window and look out to see the sea or sit outside on the deck to enjoy. Loved the little personalised welcome sign for us.
