Our cosy and comfortable bach is located on the water's edge in the friendly, quiet township of Tinopai. Enjoy the stunning views of Komiti Bay from our deck and let the kids play in the spacious backyard.

The space

Welcome to our Little Bach By The Jetty.

A bach is Kiwi-speak for a small holiday home, traditionally by the water.

We are proud to offer our cosy bach as a getaway for Kiwis or tourists wanting an authentic New Zealand experience.

The bach is next to the boat-ramp, beach and jetty.

Guest access

Guests can enjoy the whole bach to themselves. There is a master bedroom, twin bedroom and another bedroom with two sets of single bunks.

There is a kitchen (which comes with basic provisions like tea, coffee, sugar, salt and oil) where you can prepare your freshly-caught fish or oysters. Relax in the spacious living with board-games, a stereo and television.

We provide linen and towels. There is also a washing machine.

Other things to note

There is one basic grocery shop in Tinopai so we recommend you bring most of your food with you. We can give you directions to the nearest general stores to stock up en route to the bach.

If you want, there is good fishing and sometimes you can pick fresh oysters. There is a lady who sells juicy fresh mussels nearby too.

We choose this bach because we wanted a bit of classic kiwi beach bach, quiet, close to beach and good for a family gathering i.e we were visiting from overseas. It worked perfectly. It has lovely sea/harbour views, a relaxing deck. Well appointed kitchen - with espresso maskine (remember to bring ground coffee), a bbq (which we used most to cook on), also great couches and lounge chairs. There were also a pile of games for the kids and adults to enjoy. 3 bedrooms, one with a comfy double bed, one with 2 bunks (4 beds) and a bedroom with 2 single beds. The quiet location means talking a walk is relaxing. We were fortunate to hit the weekend of the Tinopai fishing competition (which Bex let us know about the week prior). That meant the boat ramp and jetty were busy with plenty of intersting sights. We ended up buying a 5.5kg snapper at the school auction - best fish I have ever tasted!

Bex and Bruno were extremely helpful with all the information they provided prior to our stay. The Bach itself is really a home away from home. There was homemade muesli prepared, fresh towels nicely laid out and essentials like body wash, toilet paper and even shampoo and conditioner provided! It was impeccably clean. We had a lovely time, really just chilled out, went for some long walks, GrandDad went fishing every day and apart from that, relaxed on the deck and took in the gorgeous view. The neighbours are a friendly bunch and the quiet fishing town has a lovey feel about it.

We had a great stay in the little bach in Tinopai. The bach is clean and tidy and very well equipped. The kids loved to play with all the toys and reading the children's books. Tinopai itself is quite beautiful, and we loved visiting sandy beach, a georgeous beach for swimming which is close by. The owners were very helpful in giving tips beforehand, and very friendly to meet on the day of our departure. Thanks for an unforgettable Christmas!

Thanks for everything, we had a really nice stay. All was clean and tidy, and the lovely little extras made it an absolute treat. This was my first time using airbnb, and if other hosts are anything like Bex, I may never stay in a hotel again! Everyone really enjoyed themselves - we even managed to catch a fish from the wharf! We also ventured out to Sandy Beach which was beautiful. I think I might have to return to Tinoai in the Summer. Thanks again for a nice stay. Two thumbs up from me.

Cottage had great view. Very comfortable and well-appointed and well-equipped. Loved the home-made muesli and appreciated beer, milk and water in fridge. Would recommend this cottage and will stay again ourselves.
