The Bach

Sleeps up to 2 guests plus bunk room for the kids

Casually chic with breathtaking sea views, The Bach at Driftwood is a spacious, self-catering holiday cottage with a comfy queen bed plus a bunk room for lucky kids. Thoughtfully designed for total seclusion, The Bach is a short 5 minute stroll from our private cove and is perfect for honeymoons. Wander the sea shore or bring the boat and be at the Black Rocks in minutes. At night, toast marshmallows under the stars or listen for our resident Kiwi from the sofa. Designed with relaxation and romance in mind, The Bach has all the conveniences of home, including BBQ, pantry basics like olive oil and spices, luxury linen and plenty of beach towels.

The Bach at Driftwood is one of just two holiday cottages that share 110 acres of stunning private peninsula, sandy coves & native bush with our family home for an intimate, private and nostalgic getaway right here in our beautiful New Zealand. 



Queen bed with New Zealand made Wallace Cotton linen provided. Comfy throws & plenty of beach towels.


MTB trails, twin all tide boat ramps, riding lessons & treks. BYO boat, fishing & dive gear, SUP, bikes, horses. It's all on your doorstep!


Switch on with smart TV, WiFi, cell coverage & Netflix. Switch off with books, magazines, sea views & native bird song.


Self-catering with BBQ & full kitchen stocked with pantry basics. We recommend a stop at Kerikeri village for groceries on your way here.

Is it better to travel than to arrive? Robert Louis Stephenson thought so! Your journey to Driftwood starts with a pitstop in Kerikeri to provision for your visit - trust us, you won't want to pop into town once you arrive.


Next, journey through some of New Zealand's most breathtaking coastal farmland. The last 15 minutes is unsealed but you do not need a 4WD to get here. Take it slow and enjoy the view. Your adventure starts here.

We love being out on the water and have safe moorings and a ramp at Driftwood. We encourage you to bring your boat and explore. Russell is just 10 minutes blat across the bay for dinner at the famous Duke of Marlborough hotel or be at the Black Rocks in minutes.
