Known to all the locals as the "Banana Bach" this basic kiwi bach is located directly across the road from Oruaiti Beach at Waihau Bay.
Oruaiti Beach is a white sandy beach which is only a short walk across the road. It is unpopulated and sometimes you feel like you have the beach all to yourself, so don't forget to pack a good book and a yoga mat.

The space
The bach itself is original and has the all of the living up stairs. On walking up to the entrance of the home you come to a decked area, this is a great spot to sit for afternoon BBQ's . From the deck you enter the open plan main living area. The kitchen is original of the 1960's and offers all the basic necessities you need whilst away on holiday. There is TV in the lounge/dining room and you will get phone reception through Vodafone.
The large section can cater for boat parking.
