Positioned in a sleepy beach cul de sac you will find 'The Smurf Shack' - This is a complete property and not a Bach on someones back section. A perfect escape back to those sepia memories of yesteryear. Consists of 2 bedrooms inside, a sleep-out, covered decks, garage w fridge, outside tiki bar/sandpit all on a large fully fenced section.

The space
The Bach is petite in size but big in character. Funky decor, fully double glazed in the Bach, insulated in walls and a new heatpump/aircon. Is was important to us that the bach still has an authentic kiwiana bach feeling while having all the modern conveniences that we need these days. There is wifi and a smart TV meaning you can stay connected and work remotely as required.
The Bach includes a Queen bed in the main bedroom, and a bunk bed in the second bedroom with a double on the bottom and a single on the top. There is also a sleepout at the back of the garden with a small deck, double bed and heater. Fresh linen, duvets, pillows and towels are provided for all guests.
Fully fenced for children and dog (please ask first, (no cats allowed) and the outside entertaining area and garden is very private and a great place to work or unwind.
Kids? There is a porter cot, high chair and even a pram in the garage which has a double attachment if carrying a baby and a toddler. There are also some bikes for the kids and beach toys and beach towels.

Location

Foxton Beach, Manawatu-Wanganui, New Zealand

Based in a quite Cul-de-sac. Pump track, river walk, tennis court & playgrounds are a short 5 minute walk away, and 7 minutes more to Ocean Beach Eatery and the beach. Recommend getting lost in the massive sand dunes. From the end of Cousins Ave there are walking and biking tracks and if you walk straight across the grass field from the parking lot there is a great walk through the pine forest and sand-dunes to the Beach.

We're a youngish professional couple from Wellington NZ, have travelled a fair bit of the world and would love to do more once our 2 young Children are an easier travel age. We're easy going , like home renovation and design, music and a wine in the evenings and appreciating the outdoors.
