Baches aren’t what they used to be, once considered small beachside shacks, they can now be almost anything. The Bookabach Bach of the Year Awards 2017 celebrate this diversity.
We’ve brought together forty exceptional baches, across eight diverse categories and now we need your help crowning the winners.
Public voting opens Monday 9 October and continues until 7pm on Sunday 22 October. You can vote for your favourite bach in each of the categories (Best Setting, Hospitality, Child Friendly, Pet Friendly, Eco Friendly, Design, Charm, Urban). Every vote puts voters in the draw to win one of ten $1,000 Bookabach Escapes*. Each vote (one in each category, up to eight in total) gets an entry into the draw.
Gold, Silver and Bronze award winners in each of the eight categories will be selected by public vote and revealed over Labour Weekend (specifically, these will be revealed on the website on Sunday 22 October after 7pm).
Judging for the Supreme Award (the best of the Gold category winners) will commence after the category winners are revealed.
Interior stylist LeeAnn Yare, who has 15+ years’ experience styling Kiwi homes and owns homeware store Collected in Auckland and media personality Goran Paladin who is best known as bach owner of DIY show Our First Home will be judging the Supreme Award.
So, what’s a bach to you?
