    Woodpecker Bay Bach ~ Life on the edge.

    Woodpecker Bay Bach is a rustic, cosy, New Zealand bach. If you want to escape the rat race... this is the place for you! Woodpecker Bay Bach is often fully booked - if your dates are not available - be sure to see my other oceanfront properties... Waihaha Bach, Te Tutu Bach and Waituhi at Whitehorse Bay :-)

    What guests are saying:

    “I can't recommend woodpecker bay batch enough! Daniel the host is superman always on the ball and will make your stay absolutely unforgettable if this is not on your bucket list It should be! this is the kind of place that you tell your kids about it has a special charm a wild freshness that can't be beaten, surrounded by bush, pristine rivers, and an untameable sea. The bush surrounding the property is thick and lush, its temperate New Zealand rainforest filled with punga, woodhen, fantail, nikau palm trees, and many other things that will bring out your inner wild heart. The batch is rustic and charming filled with all the wonderful old New Zealand kicks and knacks right down to the bone handle cutlery. Cooking facilities are fantastic, 4 hob gas burner and full-size oven, full-size fridge/freezer. The hot water is gas and the pressure is off the charts best showers ever! the bath is cast iron clawfoot and looks out over the rugged seas and captivating night sky, candles and a bottle of wine you will be entertained for hours! The stereo if fantastic peered with the acoustics of the wooden batch and its pitched roof will have you boogying all night long. When you are wanting to relax there are multiple perches and some great books in the swappa book collection. The toilet haha yes that toilet is spectacular! a throne fit for a king and a view to match ;). If you time it right there is a little roadside store you will see a sign-out and it is 1min drive south you pull in left and it's in a little wooden shack (its and honesty payment system so bring some change) they have some fantastic pickles and the freshest eggs perfect for poaching, eggs benedict for breakfast yum! There is so much more in store for you here so get your behind moving and live a little, you won't regret it I promise! if you're a kiwi and thinking about it, don't think just do it we have this amazing place in our backyard come see it for yourself! there are not many places left like this in the world! and on that note make sure you look after the batch, animals and the environment so many more generations get to enjoy the same fantastic experience! keep up the great work Daniel you're the man!”

    High Country Cabin. Secluded getaway near Twizel.

    High Country Cabin is a stylishly decorated cabin in the heart of the Southern Alps on the South Island of New Zealand.

Situated 15 minutes outside of Twizel in the heart of the Mackenzie, it has direct access to all of the natural amenities that the area is world famous for including snow sports, mountaineering, hiking & tramping, mountain-biking, hunting & fishing among many other activities.

    What guests are saying:

    “The high country Cabin is fantastic. It’s the perfect place to stay in the Mackenzie country, surrounded by beautiful views, and amazing mountains. The cabin is decorated impeccably and the little home touches like fresh towels and soaps make it perfect. The decor and wood fire top the whole thing off and the sheep for neighbors. I highly recommend staying here & if you can, book for two or three nights so you can enjoy the area. Thanks so much Kenny, we can’t wait to return.”

    “What an absolutely beautiful place to stay. Honesty it was just the relaxed one night getaway we needed. We were welcomed by lovely music in the room and were able to relax in the spa, even say hi to some farm animals. Would love to stay here again. We met Phil who was so lovely and Phil & Joy's communication was super quick and accommodating. We also had a bit of fun getting to know Alexa ;)”
