This is a 1980s refurbished family bach not an immaculate second home. It is located on the beautiful South Coast location of Island Bay, directly across the road from the beach. We don't increase our pricing for high season or public holidays. It is priced for and ideal for families, with furniture and chattels to suit.
There are great time wasting views of the Island Bay fishing boats and the beach which is directly across the road. Excellent safe beach for the kids to play on and swim and an aquarium also just across the road. Next to the beach is a park with a playground and free BBQ's to use. Good walking around the coast and on local tracks. 25 minute bus ride to Wellington city, so plenty of activities for adults and children!
Island Bay Village is 15 minutes walk away which has a supermarket, The White Room gift shop, takeaway food options, post office, cafes, library, hairdressers and doctor.
The Empire Cinema which is a 10 minute walk away, has had a recent art deco themed refurbishment with a restaurant, coffees and gelato and three cinemas.
Wellington airport is a 15 minute drive around the bays.
Comfortably set up with good beds - this is used as a bach for us out of town owners. We like to get away from it all so facilities are limited. There is no phone or internet access.
Basic tariff is $130.00 per night for 2 adults. Extra adults $15.00 per night each. Pre-school and school children free. (you will need to negotiate this and providing your own linen with the owners as Homeaway does not allow for this.) There is an open staircase on one side to potentially watch for with very little ones (see photo).
There is a garage for storage, but not for a car. Extra toilet at back of garage. Portacot available.
Cars can be safely (so far!) parked outside the bach or more safely on the far side of the footpath across the road, by the sea wall - this can be seen in one of the photos.
