About this Holiday House

Self-contained bach on Watercress Beach Paterson Inlet Stewart Island. Renovations completed late 2016 to "as new". We have reused and recycled as much as possible to maintain the Bach character and providing a high level of comfort. One queen-sized bedroom with ensuite shower and separate toilet suitable for one couple. Well equipped kitchen with fridge, dishwasher, water filter, gas hob, rangehood, electric frypan, slow cooker, stick blender and microwave. Luxury bed linen & toiletries, a range of teas and coffee and basic supplies - oil, flour, milk, seasonings etc. TV Freeview, Starlink wi-fi, books, games. Comes with loan car and transfers to and from transport to the island- please top up the petrol when you leave or leave cash to do so. Island electricity is diesel generated so instead of electric heating we have installed a highly efficient diesel heater. The whole place has double glazed windows and fully insulated. Please note: there are 22 steps up to the house. Please take this into consideration when packing your luggage. No extra linen or cleaning charges.

Great accomodation, great hosting

Great little Bach, compact, full of charm and character, beautiful view out over the water — lie in bed and look at the night sky. Good information, excellent communication and welcome, little car a bonus. Highly recommend.

We had 10 nights in the Beech Bach and it was absolutely perfect for our needs. Well equipped kitchen with some cooking staples in supply, a dining area that looked out over the bay, tonnes of dvd's if it rained. The queen bed was very comfy and the bathroom had an excellent shower. The toilet was on a corridor off the main entrance and while not exactly an ensuite it posed no access problems, automatic night lights lit up the way. The addition of a little car really topped off the convenience of this holiday home. The owners are super chilled, helpful but kept to themselves, rarely seen like all kiwi. We loved it, thank you very much.
Response from Owner
Thank you for taking time to review Beech Bach. It was lovely meeting you both and sharing some of the special aspects of the island. We are pleased you enjoyed our wee bach ...and got to see the elusive kiwi. Thanks too for leaving everything so tidy. Much appreciated.
