The bach (pronounced "batch") is a New Zealand phenomenon. There are more than 3000 of them available for rent, scattered across the country and they are a great alternative to a hotel room.
A bach is a small holiday house and comes in all shapes, sizes and prices and can be booked online. Before internet technology stepped in, people didn't know what they were going to get until they arrived, but now you can really check them out.
