Overview

Photos and Description of this Wellsford holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

Enjoy a sandy, safe and tidal beach just 80 metres across the grass. Front row position. Lovely sea and summer sunset views from the dining table. Seaside children's playground is close by.

There are some really nice and safe paddles within the bay, up two mangrove creeks as well as around the coast.

A little under an hour north of Auckland, Campbells makes for a great escape place.

By car, Matakana is 7 minutes, Tawharanui Regional Park and Sandspit both 15 minutes and Warkworth suipermarket 20 minutes.

Listen to the gulls, bellbirds and tuis in the day time, kookaburras (true) at dawn and dusk and an owl at night time.

It's a lovely location overlooking the bay.

  • 3 of 5

It's a lovely location overlooking the bay.The mandarin fruit from the tree in the garden was delicious. Sports crazy men in the family loved having the sky. The bach is on a small scale but well equiped.No wardrobes.

The negatives were minor and easily overcome. Rotten remains in 2 containers in the fridge left from previous tenant was easily biffed. The bach could have done with a bit of airing and the beds were a bit damp ,

but had we arrived earlier we could have put electric blankets on.
