Bach or holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)
we purchased this bach straight out of university over 20 years ago and still enjoy our holidays in the far north away from the ratrace of work and busy lives. the beaches are outstanding and although we have travelled a lot overseas we have yet to find beaches as beautiful as Matai Bay and Rangiputa with their crystal clear waters and warm temperatures on lovely sunny summer days.
MichelleandRogerT purchased this House in 1998
Why MichelleandRogerT chose Karkari Peninsula
traditional kiwi bach with a huge deck (55 square metres) to cater for all weather. sheltered area to get out of sun or rain newly built. newly painted lounge and kitchen area not shown in pics. new curtains in bedrooms not shown in pics. relaxing home to chill in from the stresses of work lives. small and compact so quick to clean on exiting the property.

Very awesome batch to stay at!!
Thank you very much Michelle had an awesome weekend beautiful location will def be back . I think the bad feedback people have given this place is BULLSH##. very affordable weekend away 😊�
Nice place, classic kiwi family bach.
Good location, close to the beach (2 min walk). Bach has everything you need and a homely feel with family photos and beach/holiday related decorations. Deck is great, lots of sun and partly undercover. The two rooms in the house are small but packed with beds, so you could fit a lot of people in if you needed to. The bed in the garage initially seems better than you would expect as it is in its own lined room within the big garage, but bugs and no temperature regulation make it less preferable, though still very usable. The water situation is unique (though not to Karikari), drinking water comes from a tank to a tap outside on the deck and is of good quality. The kitchen sink, toilet and shower are all fed by bore water so not suitable for drinking and has a slight sulphur smell. Owners are super nice, good with contact and helpful. We loved our stay.
thanks for your review Dan. Was great to have contact with you during your stay if you needed anything. Easy guest to deal with thanks so much. We will endeavor to sort out the downstairs room so that it is more appealing to extra stayers. we are also looking to put a filter on the bore water in the very near future.
Not worth it.
Not happy. Should not be a holiday home. No facilities at all. Stinky water, had to buy drinking water from outside and didn't have shower there as the water was not good. They should mention about this in their advert .we did bookings over a month ago and got an email about water and all just a day before of check in. Really really bad toilet, not cleaned,even the crockery wasn't clean.
Thumbs down. I really want the refund.
Sad to hear you thought that.husband stayed before you and left the Bach clean. Nz water (bore water) does have a smell and due to its content stains things like the toilet. I contacted you before you stayed due to water shortage and you said you would be ok with buying fresh water. Sorry you changed your mind. We leant you linen to help with your stay. Maybe look into renting something that is more $ per night if you want better quality next time. Thanks and sorry
Great little bach! We had a lovely stay at this property
Great little bach! We had a lovely stay at this property. It was exactly what we were expecting. It’s cosy, close to the beach and has everything you need. We would definately stay here again.
A typical New Zealand beach bach in a great location.

Very musty on arrival.
Very musty on arrival. The water stinks all the time. Two days was long enough. How they can consider the garage a bedroom. The only door is the tilta door and it locks from the out side.
