Welcome to our original 1950's architecturally designed, much loved family bach! This house is one of the first houses to be built in Riversdale and it's unique position to the views and sun reflect this. The views are spectacular, privacy and location amazing!
Eight guests are able to stay, so perfect for four couples or a family. One of the queen beds is located in the living area or you can use a double bunk bed instead . Great for both summer and winter stays.

The space
This unique bach is very much a New Zealand icon, even featuring in the "NZ architecture uncooked bach" book by Pip Cheshire and Patrick Reynolds.
The comfortable furnishings are all "60's" style with a focus on comfort. You have a choice of four bedrooms between the six of you, one being off the living room! There are three deck areas allowing you to follow the sun and avoid any wind. Two lounge areas, make this bach ideal for families or small groups to have your own "lounge about" areas. The kitchen is fully stocked and has a dishwasher and coffee machine, so bring your own favourite beans.
There are two compact newly renovated bathrooms and lots of
books and games are available to play and read. There is wifi and an Alexa, which you connect to your spotify for music.
You have direct access to the beach in front of you and the surf club, coffee caravan (summer)and shop are only 50 meters away! The 9 hole golf club is a little gem and only 5mins walk away, you can rent clubs too.

Where you’ll be

Riversdale Beach, Wellington, New Zealand

Riversdale beach is a resort village with only hundred plus permanent residents, but in the summer months swells to over a thousand people. It is a 2.5hr drive from Wellington and 40 minutes from Masterton.
There is a 9 hole golf course, which is a five minute walk away, where you can play a round for $25. Tennis courts are right beside the club and can be hired for $15hr. The playground has a footy post, skate park, children's playground and a bike track. There is a fabulously run surf club which has two flagged areas in the summer, directly out front of you and south beach. Please swim between the flags at all times as this beach has many rips. You can surf, swim, boogie board, fish or just read a book, the choice is yours!
The local shop/cafe has an on and off liscence and serves eat in or takeaway food. In the summer months there is a fabulous coffee caravan serving amazing coffee and treats, just to your left.

Hi, I'm Fi married with four children and three grandies. We've moved permanently to Riversdale Beach lately after baching here for over thirty years! I used to teach in Wellington but now host fifteen Airbnb bach's (beach houses). We love travel ourselves, so this suits us perfectly.
