Historically this was the original Postmaster house, as it is extremely well positioned high on the hill to easily see the boats and activities on the river and has panoramic views across the estuary, river, large recreational park and the Ranges.

Tastefully decorated with good sized bedrooms, one for kids to enjoy, warm and easy care. Separate lounge and separate dining spaces work well for adults/children.

We had a comfortable and relaxed stay. Enjoyed the location. A great house to be in with young children because of the flat section, some toys and puzzles, play pen/fire guard, bath tub and nearby playground.

Great kiwi bach with mod cons and lovely fire. Fully fenced for kids and tons of outdoor area. Great views all around and close to all Foxton Beach has to offer. We will be back.

Great place to stay. The fire is great, warmed up the whole place. Great shower too. Good sized bedrooms. We had a sewing retreat for two, so it was brilliant having 2 tables. It was nice being up on the hill with a view.

We absolutely loved it. The birds, the ocean sounds, the lights everything.
We could not have wished for a better spot.

Stayed over recent Father's Day weekend. We had a great time with lots of interesting walks, the cafe close by for lunch and the wood burner in the house to keep us warm at night. It was very easy for five of us to stay in this bach and not feel like we were on top of each other. Handy access to beach and park - it felt a great place to unwind.

Thanks Dianne – the house was good as ever. We've stayed two to three times per year and have done so for the past five years. The newly painted bedrooms look good. It was certainly windy and that got pretty cold to be out in but we took bikes and cycled as well as walked and played. All well worth doing – we saw a white heron which felt special. We used the fire for the first time and liked it!
