If you’re looking for that illusive ‘Beach Bach’ by the sea then look no further. Daydrift Cottage has been beautifully transformed into the quintessential classic bach experience. Comfortable furniture, native timber floors with character rugs and a classic radiogram (with LP’s) combined with a cosy wood burner make for the perfect atmosphere for kicking back and letting your worries melt away. A convenient and modern kitchen with a dishwasher so you’re not weighed down by household chores. There are lovely high vaulted ceilings for a real sense of space and a deliciously comfortable bed with fresh linen to help you have your best sleep in years. A hot tub sits outside on the deck privately nestled in under the verandah so you can take time to soak in the warm bubbling water and listen to the sound of the sea while looking out at the starry night.
Daydrift is tucked away in ‘Rangiuru by the Sea’ at Otaki’s Rangiuru Beach. This quiet location is blessed with its own unique character and atmosphere and reflective of that classic ‘bach at the beach’ feel that we’re all looking for but just can’t quite seem to find.
The Otaki River is a 5 minute walk away, has a wild estuary landscape perfect for exploring on foot or bicycle. There are raised walkways through the estuary landscape and the river stop-bank provides lovely long walks or cycling with expansive views out to the hills, river valley and the sea. A popular fishing spot for surf casting off the beach. The pine forest at the end of the road is great fun to wander through and loops back to the beachfront.
Either summer or winter options abound for those looking to escape from the hubbub of city life. Otaki village has a plethora of eating options so no need to self-cater if you want a rest from the kitchen.There’s a collection of 2nd hand shops for those that like to rummage and at the highway there’s a range of outlet stores for those that really enjoy the retail experience - so, something for everyone!
