Overview

Photos and Description of this Auckland holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10)

This spacious, light filled home - only 90 minutes easy drive from central Auckland - has been lovingly built with comfort in mind. It is the perfect location for friends or extended family wishing to holiday together as the open plan upstairs level is completely self contained, with its own kitchenette, fridge and bathroom. Large ranchsliders open up the home to the outdoors from all the living areas and downstairs bedrooms.

There is a fabulous, roomy upstairs deck for enjoying long summer evenings over a bottle of wine (or two). Enjoy a BBQ downstairs, watching the magical sunsets over the expansive fenced lake at the bottom of the garden.

The section is large and flat, ideal for kids to safely burn off excess energy while the adults kick back and relax. Superb indoor / outdoor living with our own unique garden furniture provided.

This location is a virtually undiscovered gem. The beach is uncrowded and at low tide there are leisurely walks to neighbouring bays to be savoured, exploring rock pools and watching the shorebirds as they fish at water's edge.

Bring your boat and fishing rods and launch from the beach (tractor arranged on request). Or walk east round the bay and fish from the rocks.

Within a 20 minute drive you can experience the wild surf pounding on the majestic Tasman west coast, or travel east to the historic Brooks homestead, gentle wetlands and rare bird life of the Awhitu Regional Park (you can even play a game of 9-hole golf while you're there). Or journey to the top of the Peninsula and experience some of the most stunning views in Auckland from from the ancient lighthouse overlooking the treacherous Manukau Bar.

Special conditions:

- Smoking allowed only outside.

- No tents on the back lawn due to irrigation field.

- Careful use of tank water would be appreciated.

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$60.00 per stay); Linen (Optional, NZ$7.00 per person); Bond (Required, NZ$100.00 per stay);

Great set up in the house with the pretty much self contained bedroom/lounge upstairs & flat lawn area in front, perfect for petanque or croquet & close to the beach. Great walks to do plus the winery close by

A lovely, modern house with lots of sleeping arrangement options. Just across the road from the beach and along the road from a great wee playground.

The house is perfectly situated across the road from the beach and within minutes from several other bays and beaches. It was also very spacious and clean with everything you would need for a great time away. Miss the deck already...highly recommend.

The house was huge and clean, views from the 2nd floor were amazing. The big deck on the 2nd floor makes for a great place to watch the sunset. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
