Known to all the locals as the "Banana Bach" this classic kiwi bach is located directly across the road from Oruaiti Beach at Waihau Bay.

On arriving at the bach you instantly think what an amazing location. So beautiful. Oruaiti Beach is a white sandy beach which is only a short walk across the road. It is unpopulated and sometimes you feel like you have the beach all to yourself, so don't forget to pack a good book and a yoga mat.

The bach itself has the majority of the living up stairs. On walking up to the entrance of the home you come to a decked area: this is a great spot to sit for afternoon BBQ's whilst embracing the day-long beautiful seaviews. From the deck you enter the open plan main living area. The kitchen offers all the basic necessities you need whilst away on holiday. There is TV in the lounge/dining room and you will get phone reception through Vodafone.

The sleeping arrangements are for up to six people in three bedrooms (2 x double beds and 2 x single beds). The bathroom has a shower and a separate toilet. There is a laundry outside with washing machine and dryer.

Fishermen unite, this large section can cater for multiple boats to be parked, so lock and load that boat and trailer. This area offers great inshore fishing, but also great game fishing can be had December through to July.

The beach across the road is a safe swimming beach for families. All your regular beach activites can be enjoyed from right here. A location that is remote and incredibly precious, we invite you to come relax, unwind, escape the hustle and bustle of everyday living and enjoy the beautiful East Coast of New Zealand.
