Back to Blog

We’ve brought on some amazing properties in December that we really wanted to share with you! [p.s. number 23 is stunning!]

With Summer blanketing the country in heat, we have a number of beautiful holiday homes that will keep you relaxed and provide some spectacular views of some of New Zealand’s most beautiful regions.

Bachcare is on a mission to provide our guests with a happy place that is perfect for them. For some people, their happy place looks like a holiday home overlooking the beach, for others, it’s on nestled amongst the mountains. This means that we want to offer a holiday home to fit every person and every preference.

Over December, we have been busy working alongside kiwis to add their precious holiday homes to our collection for our guests to enjoy. 30 stunning houses have been added that we have showcased for you below, so sit back, relax, and let your fingers dot he walking.
