About the property

Bach or holiday home, 0 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)

This self contained, one room bush hut is in a unique spot - it's located on a 25 acre bush block next to Albany Scenic Reserve, but is only 5 minutes drive from:

* Albany Westfield mall - cinemas, shopping, supermarkets, restaurants and cafes,

* North Harbour Stadium,

* Massey University,

* Northern motorway exits, Albany Bus Station.

Several beautiful beaches (Long Bay, Browns Bay, Mairangi Bay) and the Okura River Walkway are all close by.

The cabin is nestled in amongst a large stand of nikau and other natives. You'll hear local tui, wood pigeon, morepork and maybe a couple of our 'tame' pukeko, but not much else.... There is a small stream running past the front of the cabin (so small children need to be watched when outside).

The cabin is fairly basic and been refurbished using recycled materials, with minimal impact on the natural surroundings; the water supply is fresh, filtered rain water (no connection to town supply or public sewage system). It is ideal to get the feeling of being 'away from it all'. However, modern additions incude a largeTV with DVD player and freeview channels, gas hob and all the necessary kitchen equipment to be self-sufficient.

NB. the wee bathroom is accessed off the covered porch (see photos).

During cooler months there is an oil filled heater plus electric blanket on the main bed.

There is only patchy mobile coverage (no Telecom at the cabin itself).

Checkin: 1.00pm (or earlier by request, if available)

Checkout:10.00am (or later by request, if available)

LINEN and OCCUPANCY

* Max occupancy is listed as 4, HOWEVER, more than 2 adults will be a squeeze (2 adults and 2 children is fine).

* All linen for 2 adults is provided (king bed sheets, towels).

* For additonal guests, there is a linen surcharge of $10-$15/extra person, only if needed (you are welcome to bring your own).

Special conditions:

* There is a bush convenant on the property so pets are not allowed.

* Smoking outside only please.

* The cabin is not suitable as a venue for parties or similar - additional guests are by prior arrangement only.

* No open fires of any kind (no BBQ or braziers unless by prior agreement).

We loved everything about this batch.

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this batch. It is clean, tidy and well laid out with a great rustic charm. It had everything we needed and we loved that it is nestled in the bush - so cosy. Awsum value for money, I definitely recommend. And the host was a pleasure to deal with and really helpful and obliging. Thanks so much.

Not luxurious, but met our needs perfectly - quiet, secluded and restful, yet easy to access.
