The private jetty with kayak and even a dingy for two is available to use.
The stream at the end of the garden would be perfect for whitebait season.
Lots of eels in the stream... Here's the first one to arrive.
We enjoyed feeding the eels... Six big fat fellas visited.
And big kids that we are, we enjoyed the swing.
The bach (aka 3 bedroom house is located at Otaki Beach. Once the gates are shut you feel like you are totally private and rural. The owners give fantastic instructions on how to get there and that they are on really good terms with the neighbours, who waved out and were really friendly but also left us to be private. We never heard a peep from the neighbours.
The bach had everything anyone would want, including a great BBQ
Even a bath
There is even a telescope which I would have loved to use but our nights were cloudy.
This bach would be perfect in Winter with the fire roaring.
Even a bread maker with flour and yeast for folks that eat wheat. The pantry was really well stocked with everything you would need.
A kitchen with stove (we like to cook our own meals so always try and find a bach with a kitchen)
This is the first bach we have used where you take your own linen, I took even quilts.
(the bed was really comfy)
The back yard.
It is not far at all to Otaki Beach.
The bach listing can be found here on book a bach $130 per night for up to 2 people. Extra occupants: Adults $20/night, children $15/night.
It has three bedrooms (can sleep 6) and would be an awesome place to take older children for a holiday.
The bach was comfortable, private and really clean. The owner was awesome re arrival and departure times - we could arrive on the Friday at 10am and a late departure on Sunday at 3pm. 5/5 from us.
Thanks to Abbey for looking after Cottage Tails Farmstay for cats, she had taken over the Instagram and Facebook page for me and captured some great photos.
