Lovely bach very close to the beach. Peaceful sitting on the deck to enjoy the sun. The facilities of the bach were just what we needed. Bobbie and Julia were great communicators and hosts and made sure we were settled in well.

The loveliest place to stay in all of New Zealand. The Kauri suite has everything you need to settle in and have a lovely getaway, all while being just a short stroll to gorgeous Piha beach. We married here a decade ago and this place still outshines even our fondest memories. Bobbie & Julia are the best hosts - so kind and warm and full of the perfect suggestions. We will be back, and hopefully sooner than another 10 yrs.
