Hot Water Beach Cottage

Beachfront Holiday home with kitchen and patio
This Cottage is a great spot for a couples or family getaway. It's the closest rental property at Hot Water Beach to the Hot Pools and beach, with outstanding views from the deck where you can see the whole length of Hot Water Beach.

It has a large fenced lawn which would be perfect for some summer cricket.

Hot Water Beach has been rated one of the top ten beaches in the world, and it is easy to understand why.
Soft, white sand; cafes; art gallery and, of course, the famous hot pools you dig for yourself.

For a couple of hours either side of low tide simply dig your toes in the sand until you find a hot spot where the naturally heated mineral water is flowing. Dig yourself a pool and relax in the beautiful surrounds while the cool seawater tops up your pool and prevents it from getting too hot.

Any time of the year is great to visit Hot Water Beach. In the summer the spectacular Pohutukawa blossom is in full bloom. In winter the smells and sounds of the native bush and wildlife add to your experience.

When the tide is low the pools are accessible. Kayaking, guided bush walks, glow worm trail (at night), horse trekking and numerous other activities are also available in the area.

Extras: Linen (Optional, NZ$15.00 per person); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;

Location! Location! Location!
If you want a Bach right on the beach front, then this one is for you! It had all of the facilities we needed, was very clean & tidy, and was across the street from Hot Water Beach. And reasonably priced. Who could ask for more?

Family holiday
Loved it, perfect location and accommodation. Clean, peaceful with a great view of the beach. Recommend the fish and chips at the local campsite along with the local craft brew at Pour house.
