The Big Bach
225 Rosetta Road, Raumati
Placed 4th in the 2021 Bookabach Bach of The Year, the Big Bach is more than your typical Kiwi Bach. With 9 bedrooms sleeping up to 23 people, it is an escape to the luxury of your own private beachfront sanctuary.
Lots of decking means that wherever the sun is you can find a comfy place to enjoy it. Bask in the afternoon sun on the downstairs deck lounge suite, or stretch out in the morning sun on the upper deck sun loungers while you take in the stunning views.
The bach is on a large fully-fenced, private section with a generously sized spa pool for the adults and a Wendy house and restored boat nestled into the decking for the kids.
With a well-stocked designer kitchen and scullery, double oven and range-hood, big barbecue, dishwasher, microwave, espresso coffee machine and bread maker you will never want to leave!
