Our 'GRAY BACH' is perfect place for couples to get away from the rat race and unwind. Constant awesome wave action and some of the most magic sunsets can be yours if you are staying in our architecturally designed home. While lying in bed wake up and watch the day unfold. The sea, waves, the sky, birds, boats and the list goes on. Nature at work. It is situated in the most southern subdivision in the North Island on the rugged, geologically and historically significant Southern Wairarapa coastline. Elevated site with extensive coastal views - right to the South Island's Kaikoura mountains. (Weather permitting) Spacious with outdoor living area. Ngawi fishing village, 9 hole golf course, seal colony, lighthouse nearby. Great diving, surfing, fishing, walking (Haurangi Forest Park/Putangarua Pinnacles) and mountain biking area. Two hours south of Masterton and approx. two and a half hours from Wellington.

No open fires to be lit especially in in summer. Note - fire restriction may apply

Ann's Abode is Amazing. We stayed over long weekend and didn't want to leave. The view is spectacular, the house is comfortable and we found it very easy to relax, in fact our time went so fast at the bach we wanted to stay longer. Ann is wonderful to deal with and we will definitely stay again. Thank you Brenda & Steve.

Thankyou for the very kind comments.
We stayed at Ann's bach for couple of nights, and we are so glad we chose this place. We fell in love with the bach right away, with its to-die-for ocean views from the lounge and the bedroom. The architecture was very interesting. Being a musician, my partner found the inside of the bach acoustically favourable, whilst playing his guitar. It was just at the right distance from the Cape Palliser lighthouse and the seal colony (we didn't even have to take the car). Evenings were very special. Due to its isolated location, it was excellent for stargazing. The lounge had huge windows that we could sit in the dark watching the stars, spot shooting stars, and occasional lightning; all this while the fire was crackling away. Watching the snow on the Kaikoura mountains early in the morning was beautiful, as well as waking up to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach, spotting wild bunnies hopping through the bush, and several quails marching along. The bach had everything we needed (especially good firewood to get the fire going) to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. If you need to get away from the ho-hum of life and unwind, this is the place to come to. We will definitely be recommending this bach to our friends & family, and hope to return in the future. Thanks, Ann & Noel.

This place is amazing!!! You could not get a better place to stay. This bach is very special with spectacular views. The weather was wild and exciting, the sunsets were beautiful and the scenery nearby was stunning. You must go to the lighthouse and climb the 254 steps and you MUST visit the Pinnacles which were well worth the hour walk along the riverbed. .
Thanks Ann for sharing your piece of paradise. Carolyn and Mike Beleski.

Our second time staying at the Gray Bach and we love the combination of the stunning and wild South Wairarapa Coast and the sleek luxury of the bach. So warm throughout, once you get the fire cranking and a great kitchen for cooking. Best of all is the scenery and you don't even need to leave the bach to see it as it is all there in front of you. We saw the snowy Kaikouras when we last stayed in October. I am sure we will be back and have recommended to family and friends!

This is the second time we have stayed at the Gray Bach and we love both the rugged and beautiful coastal outlook and the sleek, sophisticated architecture that is the Gray Bach! The sun streamed in through the kitchen/back area for a good part of the day and the fire box warms the whole house come night time. Walking, biking, climbing, viewing - it is all there for the taking...or just chilling with a nice bottle of wine and a plate of your favourite kai! The kitchen is well equipped for catering needs. Thanks once again Ann!
