The Big Bach

Placed 4th in the 2021 Bookabach Bach of The Year, the Big Bach is more than your typical Kiwi Bach. With 9 bedrooms sleeping up to 23 people, it is an escape to the luxury of your own private beachfront sanctuary.

Lots of decking means that wherever the sun is you can find a comfy place to enjoy it. Bask in the afternoon sun on the downstairs deck lounge suite, or stretch out in the morning sun on the upper deck sun loungers while you take in the stunning views.

The bach is on a large fully-fenced, private section with a generously sized spa pool for the adults and a Wendy house and restored boat nestled into the decking for the kids.

With a well-stocked designer kitchen and scullery, double oven and range-hood, big barbecue, dishwasher, microwave, espresso coffee machine and bread maker you will never want to leave!

View map

These historic brick stables, set amongst the mature trees of Talisman Nursery have been converted into the most delightful cottage.

Built in the early 1920s with locally made bricks, The Old Stables housed draught horses and equipment as part of the Mangahao – Haywards power reticulation scheme. Lovingly converted during the late 1980s by a conservation architect it is now perfect as a deliciously cosy retreat.

Only 5 minutes drive from Ōtaki, the tranquillity of the surroundings make it feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. With so many original features and modern must-haves (like the log fire) The Old Stables are just perfect for relaxing and re-energising.
