Schönheit Castle 

Even Ambassadors need to get away from the pack at times, so on weekends when he is able, His Excellency Ambassador Wizard Prince Schönheit, slips away to his modest bach Schönheit Castle in Port Felix.    It is generally referred to by the staff as "The Kennel" but generally not in the Ambassadors hearing or presence.

*Bach (pronounced Batch, with the alternative of Crib in the southern part of New Zealand) is the name given in New Zealand to structures akin to small, often very modest holiday homes or beach houses. They are an iconic part of New Zealand history and culture, especially in the middle of the 20th century, where they symbolized the beach holiday lifestyle that was becoming more accessible to the middle class.

"Bach" was originally short for bachelor pad, but actually they often tended to be a family holiday home. Baches started to became very popular in the 1950s, as better roads and more available cars allowed family beach holidays, often to the same beach every year, and hence to the construction of a bach in that spot. One humorous definition of the bach, is "something you built yourself, on land you don't own, out of materials you borrowed or stole."
