More and more these days, the first place we turn for travel inspirations is social media.
Whether it’s seeking recommendations from friends, browsing through geo-tags of a destination or flicking through a page with amazing travel photos and videos. Instagram plays a massive part in this, which is why we decided to share the top five most liked baches on the @bookabach Instagram from 2017.
5. Matakana Bush Hut - Matakana, Auckland
Tucked away in the Matakana bush, this gorgeous little bach is an Instagrammers dream. The house has a minimalistic interior with Scandinavian inspired furniture and a super wide projector screen you can use to watch movies from bed. Outside there’s a hot tub and outdoor shower set amongst the trees.
4. Birds Eye View Lodge - Timaru District
If its views you’re after, this bach is for you. Set high in the hills of Timaru, this rustic lodge looks over the Canterbury Plains, Mt Hutt, the Port Hills, all the way to the Southern Alps. The house is basic, making it the perfect place to disconnect and unwind.
3. Joie de Vivre - Kawau Island, Auckland
This quirky bach literally sits in the Pacific Ocean, which makes for an amazing Instagram photo, especially if you have a boat to shoot from. One of only a handful of properties on Kawau Island, a stay at Joie de Vivre is bound to give you peace and privacy. Keen boaties can use the mooring provided by the owners too.
2. Whau Bay Log Cabin - Matauri Bay, Northland
Who doesn’t love a good log cabin? This one is in the Far North District, set on its own private beach. The feedback on this bach is fantastic. One guest even said, “This property is one of the most captivating places I’ve ever stayed at.”
1. Ti Point Beauty - Matakana, Auckland
This Matakana masterpiece is number one on the list and it isn’t hard to see why. The Ti Point Beauty has an interior filled with rustic wooden finishings and Balinese furniture but manages to be timelessly modern and minimalistic at the same time. The outside is just as impressive: the infinity pool is almost on the edge of the Ti Point headland and there’s even a lift which takes guests down to the private bay below.
