Essential Stay Info

Eating and Drinking
The Cottage has good water from a Natural spring, gas powered hot water (lots of hot water!), flush toilet, and a full kitchen with oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, etc (BYO sharp knives).

While most people get to the Cottage and never want to leave just down the road (20mins) is the Nikau Caves & Cafe (www.nikaucave.co.nz), they do great coffee and homemade food in an amazing setting.

There is also a good walk to a waterfall fall from the cafe and of course the Caves themselves which some say are better than Waitomo - bring your old clothes for that!

Just a fine weekend to go fishing off the rock. Great sleep and good to relax before life gets crazy again - thank you.

Lovely break in ideal location. Fish aplenty!

Fantastic spot, great get away for the weekend would definitely be back in the future ... thank you Lisa.

What a fabulous piece of paradise. We picked the worst weather of the winter but it was wild and wonderful at the beach. The Bach was cosy with the open fire and we enjoyed the spectacular view. We will be back 😊

Excellent Kiwi Bach, loved the location, smoky fire and wild weather made for a great time. Awesome shower! Seals, Dotterels, Oyster Catchers, Geese, Goats along the beach and dunes made it a great pleasure to be in this West Coast Idyll. Not easy to find, but I guess a bonus, we saw no other humans 😄 Will visit again.

Our family had a fantastic time.. the cottage is tidy, homely and cosy... the farm and animals were great for the kids to see.. and the beach is paradise to explore!
Russell - Sep 2019

Had a great stay with Fam, weather wasn’t kind to us but was a fun relax, walks along the beach, toasting marshmallows and eating and drinking too much! Lunch at Nikau Cafe on the way there and a soak at Waignaro Hot pools on the way home.
Lisa - Oct 2019

Fantastic location, not a soul in sight. Perfect getaway for family and friends that wants to forget about the hustle and bustle of the city.
George - Nov 2019

Fantastic place, clean and great info prior to arrival. Can’t wait to go back
JUSTINE - Nov 2019

What a spot! Thank you
Laura - Dec 2019

Incredible, remote, stunning spot with everything you need. I want to say it was awful so no one else knows about it.
Matt - Jan 2020

Nice location and interior. Fabulous shower pressure. Great views. Didnt see a single other soul. Great that there was no tv or reception for phones. Helped us detox from technology a bit. Downside- ants everywhere, including joining us in bed... but that's summertime at beach, and I think they got driven inside with showers ! Total lack of smoke alarms, which I dont even think is legal.
