About the property

Bach or holiday home, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 5)

Two bedroom upper floor of a character home which has evolved over the years from a 1940's bach. The original floor plan can be seen in the beautiful, wide, Kauri, Rimu and Matai floor boards which grace the central area of the house. A deck runs all around the north facing side of the house, connecting the kitchen deck with the deck off the lounge. The kitchen has a cosy alcove with a cute little 50's diner style table. Each deck also has a table and chairs, allowing lots of choice for dining and relaxing.

Verrans Corner is a comfortable walk away, with a superb cafe. Even closer, a restaurant quality Thai takeaway and little superette are only a short walk away, at the top of the road. Birkenhead has a great selection of restaurants too.

Our local beach is tidal, but I find I can always get a swim in, and there is a good three hour window of swimming around each high tide. Otherwise, the nearby East Coast beaches of Takapuna, Milford, Mairangi Bay etc, have all day swimming and wonderful beach walks.

Ferries depart from Beachhaven wharf, Birkenhead wharf, Northcote wharf and Devonport.

Special conditions:

Smoking is allowed outside only.

There is one cat which lives downstairs with the property owner. She is not allowed in the house upstairs.

There are considerate occupants living in the downstairs part of the house.

Linin, duvets and pillows are included for all beds, plus towels

During peak season minimum bookings of four days are prefered.

Extras: Cleaning (Required, NZ$100.00 per stay); Linen (included);

Great location - not too far from the city and yet a feeling of being close to nature, too.

Great location - not too far from the city and yet a feeling of being close to nature, too. Nice to catch the ferry into town. Absolutely the best views from the deck, especially at sunset. The house itself has a nice quirky feel and is quite spacious. We would definitely stay again.
