'Island style' Beachside Accommodation on South Island's West Coast, NZ

Nestled in the bush clad peninsula of Tauranga Bay overlooking the Tasman surf, the Bay House has an unique coastal location giving a sense of escape to somewhere close to paradise.

Formally a cafe (and prior to that the local surf club and a holiday bach), The Bay House has evolved into contemporary  'island style' accommodation offering luxury beachside studios and stylish garden suites in an idyllic beachside location.

Tauranga Bay, Maori for ‘sheltered anchorage’,  is 16kms south of Westport or 57kms north of Punakaiki, on the West Coast of the South Island. Set on a peninsula at the end of the road on the edge of the horseshoe bay, our unique seaside location is a stone's throw from the Tasman Sea.
