The Beach Hideaway is located just south of Barrytown. The accommodations are nice—a cottage with a living room, full kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom. The bedroom is very small (just large enough to fit the bed), and therefore not much room to fit the luggage. The biggest disappointment was that the beach was located so far from the cottage. From the glass windows of the cottage, we could see a very distant view of the ocean -- the beach is about a third of a mile from the cottage. The beach is not easily accessible because there a chain linked fence between the cottage and ocean—our neighbors in the other cottage could not find their way to the beach. The name is misleading--- Because the place was called “Beach Hideaway,” we expected the beach to be much closer than a third of a mile. Additionally, the place is overpriced compared to other places we stayed near the ocean in New Zealand. Overall, accommodations were nice. However, the beach is very remote and you can stay at much nicer places near the ocean for a lower price in New Zealand. If you are looking for a place near the ocean, you may be disappointed.
