About the property

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$5.00 per person); Bond (Required, NZ$150.00 per stay);

The property was lovely and well equipped for our stay. The property is large and well suited for our 2 grandchildren to throw around a rugby ball and frisbee, they loved it! The location was perfect for our weekend get away. Lovely views of the country coupled with a 2 minute walk to the beach and gorgeous views of the harbour - awesome swimming. Will definitely recommend and be back again when we return to Auckland.

A nice place for a large group like ours. It was unfortunate that we had a massive storm causing a power cut and no water but, despite this, we still had a memorable weekend and it just adds to the story!

Property was perfectly set up for us with two small families and the kids had a blast. The water pressure was great, the beach was lovely to walk along and just a minute away.

The Awhitu Peninsular is like being in the wilderness without having to travel 5,000 miles to get there. What a gem of a place. The house has all you need. The wild west coast scenery and the huge harbor makes for a magic experience.
