This holiday home is central to a number of great activities, walkways, parks and a number of fantastic kiwi eateries in Foxton Beach.

Based on a traditional kiwi bach, the property underwent an extensive modernisation in the late 2000's, adding insulation and double glazing, and we’ve just had a heat pump installed to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.

The property includes a sleep-out which is yet to be renovated and used for storage at the moment, with items such as boogy boards, sports equipment, beach equipment, picnic sets etc at your disposal. The sleep-out also has an additional toilet. Bach also includes port-a-cot and high chair for littlies, as well as various toys, board games, indoor activities and unlimited wifi.

Perfect winter beach break
Awesome property. Beautifully clean with everything we needed, loved the special personal touches at check in. Warm and comfortable in winter, and super handy to great takeaways and coffee. We loved being able to bring our dog who enjoyed the large section and lots of beach walks. We'll be back!
