This is a comfortable and affordable bach that is great for families. For those with kids its nice not to have a ton of super fragile items in the house that can be destroyed and there is an assortment of kids games, plastic kitchenware etc. The covered outdoor patio is a great outdoor option. The bach is central to Fish and Chip shop, wharf and general store. The Sawmill is a 5 minute walk away if that's more your speed. Bach owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and made our trip easy. Recommended for families looking for a comfortable option in Central Leigh that won't break the bank.

The Leigh Family Retreat is a fabulous place to stay. Even though it is not a new/modern Bach It is wonderfully clean, has everything you need, and located close to some amazing beaches. Nigel is very helpful. We will be back. Thank you for sharing your place.

Quaint kiwi bach. Great place to kick back and relax. Beds are comfortable but the pullout sofa bed mattress is not. Location is very central to the village and gateway to Goat Island.
Response from Owner
Thanks for staying and your feedback. Apologies you found the pullout couch uncomfortable. We usually have airbeds/foam mattresses available for bigger groups but because your booking was only for 5 adults and 1 child we didn't realise you would need more than the four queen beds. We hope to welcome you again at some point and do let us know next time if you require the air bed.
