Our lovely 1920s Bach (NZ holiday home) is a one minute walk from the beach which is over 100kms long. Full of quirky character & few mod-cons this is a place to be away from the TV, rest up & enjoy stunning nature on the doorstep. We have kept as many original features as possible so you get to experience a traditional Kiwi holiday - with a few added comforts. We are dog friendly, please check the additional house rules if you'd like to bring yours. We do have Fibre WIFI & no cleaning fee!

The space
Our much loved original bach (holiday home) is creative and comfortable, away from TV, although we do have Fibre WIFI. Explore NZs longest drivable beach one minute walk away, check out the 18 hole golf course close-by, enjoy fish and chips from the local dairy "Sharkys" or try eating in from their new menu. You can also drive into town and visit our boutique cinema that shows all the latest movies and more. And, if you would like to get married while you are on this wonderful west coast beach I am a very experienced licensed celebrant.
We do not charge a cleaning fee so we ask that you leave our space clean and tidy. There will be simple breakfast supplies provided for you.
If there are 3 of you staying do note the original bedroom "doors" are still in place - which are in fact curtains so privacy is limited.
Please also note, the bach is also used as my creative arts therapy & counselling workspace a couple of days a week (outside of holidays) so you'll find drums, art materials and other interesting creative tools there too!

Josie Scott I work as a counsellor, creative arts therapist and celebrant - mostly all from Baylys Beach, lucky me! Am passionate about West African Drumming, love animals and travelling. Graeme is my husband, he is very sociable and knowledgeable about the beach and surrounding area having grown up here. We've enjoyed using Airbnb on our travels and want our guests to have a great stay at Baylys Beach - having traveled around the world ourselves we understand that being made welcome and having those little extra touches can make a real difference to a holiday. f you're away from your dog, ours will happily say hello when we're passing and if you've bought yours with you she will happily have a play! Our tabby cat Mo may pop down at some point too...
