Gunado - a cosy kiwi bach.

Waterfront vacation home with kitchen and patio
The bach is nestled among mature totara trees and is home to many native birds. It has a lovely open garden and an extensive view across the estuary which will fill up during spring high tides. It is only a 30 second walk across the other side of the road to a very safe swimming beach.

There are two kayaks to use and the garden and estuary are interesting safe places for children to play while parents sit and relax on the deck.

The living area is open and cosy with an efficient wood burner to keep the house warm in the winter months. There are two good sized bedrooms that look across the estuary and are both light and well insulated; the larger bedroom has double glazing. A new bathroom has been recently added to the bach and the living room extended.

It is a great place to escape and relax and offers long beach walks where you can observe the many wading birds, collect shellfish or just beach fossick. There are many beautiful natural locations nearby to visit by car including Wharariki beach which is only a 20 minute drive. Whatever you choose to do you will come home feeling better for taking the time to stay here.

A lovely Bach beautifully furnished in a very special location
We stayed here for 3 nights in November and loved it. The Bach is in a gorgeous location on the lagoon with great views and surrounded by birdsong. Walks on a beach that goes on forever are just across the way. Absolute peace and quiet and privacy. The Bach is a really comfortable and stylish mix of modern comforts with a touch of kiwiana without loosing the feel of a real family Bach. The kitchen has everything you need. Bathroom is modern and there is plenty of hot water. We loved it. Thanks so much

Peace & Tranquility
Gunardo was amazing, as soon as we walked in the door it felt like home, the perfect getaway, peaceful, beautiful bird life; I can’t recommend it enough. Would definitely stay there again.

Loved Our Getaway
The house is lovely in a beautiful peaceful setting, it has everything you need and more. Estuary and beach right on your doorstep. It's close to lots of places to explore, lovely beaches and walks. We'd definitely book again. Thanks

5/5 Excellent

Pakawau beach bach
Beautiful bach, quiet, cozy, relaxing and the area and scenery is outstanding around there. Not that far from farewell spit which is a must if your out that way. All the amenities you need for a break away within the bach. Our only issue was the mattresses, very uncomfortable, possibly due for a replacement?
