Bach (New Zealand)

A bach (pronounced 'batch') ((also called a crib in the southern half of the South Island) is a small, often very modest holiday home or beach house in New Zealand. Baches are an iconic part of the country's history and culture, especially in the middle of the 20th century, where they symbolised the beach holiday lifestyle that was becoming more accessible to the middle class. Bach was thought to be originally short for bachelor pad, but actually they often tended to be a family holiday home. An alternative theory for the origin of the word is that is the Welsh word for small, although the pronunciation of the Welsh word is considerably different, as in the German name 'J S Bach'. Baches began to gain popularity in the 1950s as roads improved and the increasing availability of cars allowed for middle-class beach holidays, often to the same beach every year. With yearly return trips being made, baches began to spring up in many family vacation spots.
