The SpaceThe location right next to the crashing ocean is a breath taking feature of this property. The bach is rustic and quirky. Filled with lots of treasures from a bygone era... think 'simple family holiday from 60 years ago' and you're getting close. Wifi, apple TV, flatscreen and bluetooth speakers provide some modern conveniences. A bach (pronounced 'batch') is a small, often very modest holiday home or beach house. Baches are an iconic part of New Zealand history and culture from mid 20th century. SAVE THE PENGUINS - A portion of every booking is donated to the West Coast Penguin Trust - $1,040 raised & donated so far... The penguins thank you! There is also a donation box in the bach if you wish to donate some more :-) Guest AccessGuests have total access to the whole property. Interaction with GuestsOwner lives remotely - and will be available by email from the bach. There is no cell phone coverage here but there is a free phone for local calls. Free WIFI/broadband. The NeighborhoodThe highlight of this area is its remoteness and untouched wilderness areas. There are great hiking trails in the area including in Paparoa National Park and at the famous Punakaiki Pancake Rocks. Wildlife on the coast directly below the bach include seals and many seabirds and occasionally penguins, dolphins are often spotted swimming past. Kayaking up the Poroari River is beautiful, easy and highly recommended! Kayaks can be hired at the Poroari bridge just north of the Pancake Rocks. See my 'guidebook' on this listing for other things to do, There are also brochures and other suggestions at the bach once you arrive. Getting AroundNo Public transport - must have a car, although pre arranged bus drop off and pick up is possible. The bach is on State Highway 6 north of Fox River. Nearest shops/petrol are 30- minutes north in Westport... or 45 minutes south at Greymouth. Other Things to NoteThe flush toilet is located outside down a short garden path. Water supply is rainwater collected the from the roof to a small tank, this is topped up from the garden hose (hose water drawn from a local waterfall) - I recommend you bring bottled water for drinking... though I always just drink water straight from the tap. Bring all your food... the nearest shops are 30 minutes away in Westport.
