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 :-)

The space
The location right next to the crashing ocean is a breathtaking feature of this property. The bach is rustic and quirky. Filled with lots of treasures from a bygone era... think 'simple family holiday from 60 years ago' and you're getting close. Wifi, Netflix and Bluetooth speakers provide some modern conveniences.
A bach (pronounced 'batch') is a small, often very modest holiday home or beach house. Baches are an iconic part of New Zealand history and culture from mid 20th century.
SAVE THE PENGUINS - A portion of every booking is donated to the West Coast Penguin Trust, $3,932 donated so far (to April 2021) The Penguins thank you!

Where you’ll be

Punakaiki, West Coast, New Zealand

The highlight of this area is its remoteness and untouched wilderness areas. There are great hiking trails in the area including in Paparoa National Park and at the famous Punakaiki Pancake Rocks. Wildlife on the coast directly below the bach include seals and many seabirds and occasionally penguins, dolphins are often spotted swimming past. Kayaking up the Pororari River is beautiful, easy and highly recommended! Kayaks can be hired at the Pororari bridge just north of the Pancake Rocks. See my 'guidebook' on this listing for other things to do, There are also brochures and other suggestions at the bach once you arrive.

I live in Auckland where I work as a commercial property manager, a job I love... but my real passion is looking after these holiday homes on the beautiful West Coast! For adventures or time-out I travel overseas or head to the Coast. It really is a pleasure to be able to share these special places with guests from within NZ and all corners of the world. Please see all of my coastal properties - Woodpecker Bay Bach, Waihaha Bach, Te Tūtū Bach, Waituhi at Whitehorse Bay and in Northland - Tua Tua Bach. Everyone is welcome! Daniel :-)
