Overview

Photos and Description of this Takapuna holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)

This is a beautiful family home in one of Takapuna's best streets. Warm and

sunny with indoor/outdoor flow on all levels, and close-up views from the

kitchen, lounge/dining and top floor bedroom.

The position is central to everything Takapuna has to offer, from its world

class cafes, bars and restaurants, movies, theatre, shopping malls to its safe

and clean sandy beach and even surf on the reef in a big NE swell.

The separate kitchen is well equipped with European appliances, including

a bench-top grill and deep fryer, large fridge/freezer with cold water and ice

maker.

Ample off street parking.

Small private fully fenced tropical garden off the three down-stairs bedrooms

with outdoor furniture and bar-b-q also on the lower level.

It's the perfect beach house for a summer holiday where you can swim, walk

along the beach to the famous beachfront café, or along the road to numerous

other cafes, restaurants, movies and shopping.

And, just 3 minutes drive from Auckland's main North/south motorway, and

five minutes walk to main bus station in Lake Rd. Take the harbour bridge to

downtown Auckland City in ten minutes,

I would probably say this sleep 5 comfortably.

  • 4 of 5

I would probably say this sleep 5 comfortably. There were 8 of us and we ended up buying two camp beds to sleep us just given the bedding situation. The upstairs couch bed is pretty firm so I would suggest taking another foam mattress for that also. Lovely place though and a lovely spot that was within walking distance to the Bruce Mason Centre and Takapuna shops.

Owner's Response: The house has 3 double beds, and yes although the pull out sofa bed is firm it does sleep two (my husband and I have slept on it ourselves). We provided you with a single foam mattress, and as we discussed you were more than welcome to bring extra mattresses if you needed them. You left the house unsecure, leaving 2 downstairs windows wide open (and we were away overseas) so this was not acceptable. You also left a kitchen window wide open - and Auckland has had very heavy rain all week.

The property is in a lovely area of Takapuna how nice was it to have your own footpath and gateway straight onto the beach couldn't have been better for our family. There is everything local for all your needs all within walking distance.

The property was great, family friendly - perfect in fact we felt very at home. The location was amazing - right by the beach and within walking distance of pretty much everything in Takapuna including great cafes, bars and places to eat. We had the best holiday! Thanks Marilyn and Mark.
