  • Woodpecker Bay Bach ~ Life on the edge.

    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:

    “What a special spot! The Woodpecker Bach is the very essence of a kiwi holiday. Privately hidden away off the road, it has so much character and stunning views! Being so close to the waves and the sea, it's hard to find something quite like this. Although the toilet is outside, it is a flushing toilet in its own little hut that overlooks the ocean. The kitchen is easy to make meals in, and the shower pressure is great! There was also an article that came out before we arrived about the top bathtubs in some of NZ's accommodation, and the Woodpecker Bach was included. Daniel is a wonderful host, providing easy instructions, and has made the place feel very homey. You feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but Fox River and the Punakaiki pubs are only a short drive away. We recommend staying here to anyone!”

    “Sharon was so thoughtful during our lockdown stay. She did everything she could to make our enforced stay a lovely experience. She put extra cooking facilities in for us as it was going to be a 4 week stay and even sorted out getting us to the airport. She dropped food off when she went shopping and went above and beyond in checking every few days if we needed anything. Would highly recommend”

    What guests are saying:

    “We had a great stay at Little River Cottage for our anniversary. It was such a peaceful place to get away from it all. We did the bush walk - be aware this is is a bit steep and slippery in places and took a wee while to do, so wear good shoes. Adam loved having some cold water therapy in the waterfall in the morning! Breakfast was lovely, gluten free accommodated, and there was even a note detailing the gf options. I really wish we had booked for more than one night!”
