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.

The Neighborhood

Tinopai is a cute backwater town which is only a two-hour drive from Auckland but a world away from the daily grind. Locals are friendly and proud of this old-school Kiwi community which has 200-400 residents.

There are a couple of nice walks around, especially to nearby Sandy Beach.

Getting Around

The best thing about staying in Tinopai is that it's off the beaten track . . . however, this means that the best way of getting here is by car (or boat if that's how you're rolling). We provide well-detailed directions on getting here so you don't get lost.

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.
