Overview

Photos and Description of this Waitakere holiday house

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

Only 45 minutes from central Auckland, this bach is a world away from the hubbub of the city. If you love surfing, or want a retreat close to the sea, this is a wonderful place to stay. The private garden is beautifully maintained and has places where you can lie in the sun or read in the shade. It's a short stroll down the hill to Lake Wainamu, for a lovely swim or a long walk; and a quick 2 minute drive to the beach for swimming or surfing at O'Neills. And when you return, just close the big wooden gates to retreat into your own private sanctuary. If it gets cold, just stoke up the log burner for a cozy fire.

There are bush walks - both easy and challenging - in the neighbourhood, and the unique transportable Bethells coffee cart offering food and music on the weekend.

Limit of five people to stay.

Smoking allowed outside only.

Pets allowed only with prior approval of owner.

No parties.

Extras: Linen (Optional, NZ$10.00 per stay); NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave;

Great location, ideal for two couples to chill and do some walks at Bethells.

Great location, ideal for two couples to chill and do some walks at Bethells. Everything there you needed including no communication with the outside world...great!!! Bach has old school feel to it but very comfortable and relaxing. Sunny and private also. Great little spot...we'll be back.

Snowy the cat was a great friend!

  • 5 of 5

Snowy the cat was a great friend! The size and awesome feel of the place was so much fun - awesome sized kitchen with lots of space to move around!

Such comfy beds to sleep in after a day of fun in the sun, running the sand dunes and swimming in the lake!

Super friendly neighbours as well! The perfect holiday spot!
