Bush surrounded beach house with sea views.
This comfortable 2 bedroom bach is centrally located on Great Barrier Island, just a 10 minute drive from Claris airport and a 2 minute walk to a safe swimming beach Okupu.

The space

The bach has decks that open out to views of Okupu, and is surrounded by native bush.
It is a quiet and restful place.

Great Barrier Island has a lot to offer. Most activities are outdoors focused such as bush and beach walks, boating, tramping, fishing,diving and surfing, the bach is nearby to many beautiful beaches and tracks.

Guest access

Please help yourself to fresh herbs and vegetables from the gardens.
There are 2x fresh eggs daily, lift the door on the back of the hen house and look in the nesting box. Please feed the hens your food scraps and a jar full of chook food from the little shed in front of the bach.

Other things to note

Shops carry a good basic range of food but can be expensive so its good to come prepared.

Wonderful place to stay. Very clean and comfortable. Nice location being close to a beach and also fairly central for exploring around the island. Sonya was clear and prompt with communication and accessible when needed. Would definitely recommend to others.

What a beautiful Bach on a beautiful island! We had a great action packed weekend and the location was perfect for getting around the island. The Bach had a wonderful view and was just a short walk to the beach. We very much enjoyed the use of the kayaks. It had everything we needed and was very spacious. Communication with Sonya before arrival was really helpful. Would thoroughly recommend to others.

Great place, with good views and very handy to beach. Excellent spot to be based, as your close to most other places on the island.

We loved our stay at this beautiful location. The house is comfortably kitted out with everything you need to lie back and relax. On arrival we were met by Jamie, Sonya's partner, who showed us around the house and told us about the kayaks. He said "the dolphins are down in the bay now so we should get out there!" Unbelievable - we spent an hour kayaking with a pod of thirty dolphins swimming around us and feeding off the fish. That was just the beginning of our stay. Thanks so much Sonya and Jamie - we'd love to come back when we're next over. Ngā mihi nui Ka kite Mark and Milton

We have had the most wonderful time at The Bach at Okupu. Sonya was in communication with us on a regular basis before our visit and we found everything to be as described. The situation is idyllic and the view amazing too. A very comfortable place with all you could wish for.
