5/5 Excellent

A real beach haven, the name suits the bach well. Thank you we had a very relaxing weekend and a lovely visitor(sea lion)

5/5 Excellent

An absolutely amazing location. Sea lions right outside the house! Stunning sunrises!
We arrived late and woke to find ourselves in the most stunning location! White sand beach es and sea lions out the front of the house. The house it’s self was gorgeous, rustic and full of character. Everything we need was provided. Will be back! Maybe in summer. Very cold, but well supplied with heaters and fire wood, and to be expected given season, location and era of the home.

4/5 Good

Great kiwi bach
A quirky kiwi beach Bach. The property is old and at first glance looks a little unloved but that just adds to the character and charm of the place. Vincent was amazing to deal with and extremely helpful when we arrived. The check in process was well communicated. The house is deceptively large and has everything you want in a Bach holiday. Location is outstanding and the wildlife enthralling. We will most definitely stay here again.

5/5 Excellent

Magic Spot in Aramoana
One of the coolest places to stay in Dunedin. You are pretty much on your own island out there, such an amazing place to relax and unwind. Make friends with the local wildlife and cosy up by the fire inside. A beautiful rustic and historic Gem, thanks for sharing this amazing place! Will definitely be back xx

5/5 Excellent

Sea lions, sea and sun
A hidden gem just 30 minutes from Dunedin. House is nestled on the sand dunes with resident sea lions basking in the sun in the garden. Such a beautiful spot with a house full of history and charm. Thank you so much for sharing you lovely home in such a great environment.
