 The word '​Bach'​ itself is actually short for '​Batchelor Pad'. A typical bach is usually near a beach, has a cheap construction or is old, has very basic amenities, and is furnished with the family'​s cast-offs. The word '​Bach'​ itself is actually short for '​Batchelor Pad'.

 It's fair to say that not all '​bach'​s'​ are so basic now. Often the land they are on is prime real estate, as they often have sea views. So selling the family '​bach'​ can make a nice profit, and the new owners usually dismantle the original house and put up a new one. When we first arrived in the country we were offered the use of a bach in Pauanui, on the Coromandel Peninsula. Well! So much for a tatty little hut! This was a brand new three bedroomed house on an estate that looked like it was straight out of one of the posher areas of Auckland! It's fair to say that not all '​bach'​s'​ are so basic now.
