The best of the East Coast . Truly authentic comfortable kiwi bach, large garden and deck. Walk to the beach, river, golf and bowling clubs, and friendly cafes. Slow down a few paces, your experience of the East Coast starts here.
Be transported to another time and place where the horses are still ridden road-side, where a friendly nod of the head will return a wave of the hand and a knowing smile. Stay in our truly authentic scuffed and weathered quintessential kiwi bach, 4mn walk to the beautiful Tolaga Bay beach and river, shops, pub and cafes. Iconic building in Tolaga Bay, comfortably furnished, fully equipped, good clean bedding, friendly hosts. Fully self contained cabin to rent together with the bach for large groups or on its own for a cosy nest. Large private garden with lots of fruit trees which can be picked in season, deck, bbq and outdoor furniture. Extra breakfast and table d'h么te with delicious Kiwi/French home cooking with fresh local and garden products available by arrangement. Or get back to basic and munch on fish and chips on the beach bought from a choice of eating out options. Safe swimming, kayaking and good fishing from the beach at the end of the street or further at the wharf. Launch your boat from the ramp behind the house or hire a local charter for tuna, groper, snapper, terakihi, bluenose and kingfish. You can even swim with the dolphins on a lucky day. Try your hand at feeding wild stingrays (under the supervision of a guide). Surf the local beach break with a short fast wave, good for surfers of all levels, better for more experienced surfers. Hunting, historical tours, bowling club, golf course, skate park and bush walking all within easy access. Gaze at the milky way, wake up early so you can be the first to see the dawn, or stay indoors wrap yourself in a book from the bach selection, listen to the ocean crashing waves or the absence of man-made noise, watch the world go by and appreciate a very relaxing holiday at its best. Oh happy days! This is Kiwi living, raw and real.
