We've stayed here twice in 2021, our happy place on the Barrier is made more special by staying just off Medlands beach at this bach which has all you need to kick back & get away from it all, and also enough comfort if the weather gods throw bad weather at you for a few days too.

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.
