About the property

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

Waitarere is a low key, safe, homestyle, charming, quiet, village with a great shop that makes its own bread, cakes and grinds coffee beans, a fish and chip shop, two cafes, tennis court, two playgrounds, and a recycling center. Surf and police patrol all summer. Ten minutes south of Foxton with its second hand shops and museums, ten minutes north of Levin with its cinemas and supermarkets.

This is a place where kids feel really safe and learn to play on the road and walk to the shop. Good for an adults only get-away too !

The BBQ is not working until further notice.

The bach suits : two couples and some kids, one couple and kids, single adult and kids, group of adults, an adult couple.

The bach is lovingly fitted out retro / vintage style and is 5 minutes walk from the beach. There are two queen beds, a pull out sofa, and three bunk beds. Terrific light all day, from the morning sun on the sheltered outdoor breakfast table at the back, to the afternoon sun shining on your drinks on the deck and while you wave at everyone passing by. Microwave, heat pump/air con, dishwasher, espresso machine, washing machine, a Bose ipod dock with stereo speakers for your music. One shower inside, one out. Board games, books, and wifi - its up to you if you give the kids the password !

In winter, all beds have electric blankets and there is a heat pump. The floor and roof are fully insulated, which makes the house very cosy, warm and dry.

Arrive after 4 pm and leave by 11 am, so we can clean up and be ready for the next guest. Please ask for different times before the booking starts.

There will be a $100 bond which is usually refundable, after the cleaner has been.

Money is paid in full (or in two installments) into a bank account. No cash.

Once the money is paid in full, you will receive an email with all the notes about alarms, keys etc

I can do a deal on stays longer than a week. For repeat customers, there can be a discount, or, depending on bookings, a free night.

Special conditions:

This bach is well loved by friends and family and we hope you love it too. Here are the rules: Put everything back where you found it. No shoes inside. Clean up after you. No smoking in or out. No more people staying than what was arranged. No outside noise after midnight. No large parties unless agreed beforehand. Cleaning and washing linen is included in the price. $100 bond will be required. For long bookings, payment can be in 2 parts.

Extras: Cleaning (included); Linen (included);

This Bach was perfect for our getaway with friends.

  • 5 of 5

This Bach was perfect for our getaway with friends. Really interesting artwork etc......and the library is amazing. Has any piece of kitchen equipment you might desire. Outdoor area is cosy and semi-private....you can lie in bed reading and still be part of the group having breakfast or drinks outside! The beds are very, very comfortable.

The love shack is within easy reach of the beach.

  • 4 of 5

The love shack is within easy reach of the beach. it was very well appointed, it had everything we needed and we thoroughly enjoyed the unique decor. Waitarere is a quiet and friendly spot and within easy reach of Foxton, Levin or Otaki and secondhand shopping. There are several mountain bike rides and trails close by... perfect!
