We two stayed at The Pohutukawa Bach for four nights and found it just perfect! It was spacious, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Communication with the owners was prompt and helpful. They visited us one very wild night with extra firewood which was much appreciated.

Lovely well maintained house with perfect location to the beach. Excellent section for backyard cricket with the neighbors dog (Wilbur) being an excellent fielder. We had a fabulous break in this unique location.

Amazing beachside location, nice little holiday home with everything you need for your stay. Perfect for a weekend away or an extended stay. Would definitely come back and stay! Only minor this is the bedroom with the single beds doesn't have a door (has a curtain instead) so the curtain didn't muffle much sound when the kids were trying to go to sleep.
Response from Owner
Pleased you had such a wonderful stay in our little Bach. We do try hard to keep thing up to date and easy. Yes the little single bedroom only has a curtain. The Bach was built in the 1940's and was later converted to become the very first Bach on Medlands Beach in the 1950's, lots of updates have been done but somethings are still old time feel. Love to have you enjoy the Bach again. Jo
