- english, french
We are a family who wanted a retreat that was close to Auckland but provided a space and environment to restore and have precious time together. When we travel we like to stay at others home and so decided to share ours too.
Sandra purchased this House in 2002
Why Sandra chose Beachlands
The location directly on the waters edge is special, particularly with the native trees in the garden and associated bird life.

Very homey and picturesque
Our whole team of kayakers participating in the 2017 World Master Games stayed at this fantastic beach front property and we all enjoyed every minute of our stay.
Having the beach just below the property gave us easy access to daily paddles on the ocean, and we really enjoyed both the sunrises and sunsets from the window benches in the big room.
Now that the new Countdown is open in Beachlands, there will be even less reasons to leave this dream spot.
Easy access to downtown via the ferry saved us a lot of driving time through the stagnant traffic of Auckland in order to visit the hot spots of the old town.
We came away with great memories of New Zealand.
Thank you Sandra for making this beautiful property available !
I will definitely recommend this home to all my friends going to NZ.

We enjoyed a tremendous 10 days at this charming home. Four adults and 2 grandchildren were easily catered for in this spacious home. The window bench seating was a feature and a cosy place to relax on a chilly day. The outside entertainment areas were great with easy access to the beach. The owners have been very thoughtful in providing for every need including a toy box for the kids. Plenty of private facilities to cater for multiple couples. We highly recommend and would stay again when visiting Auckland.
Thank you and we enjoy sharing our special retreat with others, like yourselves who appreciate it.
New Zealand Oasis
Our family stayed at this beachfront home for 8 days and absolutely loved the homes location and accommodations. We absolutely loved the landscaping and ocean views from the living room and kitchen areas with the bench seats overlooking the deck being our favorite hangout area!!! The home was extremely peaceful and was within reasonable driving distance to Auckland while we were enrolling our daughter into the university. The home was as good or better than described on VRBO and owners Sandra and Kevin were fantastic to work with. We would highly recommend this home to anyway looking for a great vacation home value in New Zealand and we hope to stay again soon!
We are pleased you enjoyed the retreat and look forward to welcoming you back.
A Real Gem
We had a lovely week here on our visit from England. The accommodation is very spacious and there was plenty of space for four adults and two small children. The aspect from the garden is glorious with views of the sea but shade from the trees if needed. The house has real character and is very comfortable. We had a family party on our last night with four more adults joining us which worked really well.
We would really recommend it.
It was lovely that 3 generations were able to enjoy the house and surrounds. You were great guests and welcome back anytime.
A real retreat - easy city access
We stayed at this place for a week two Adults and two kids (9, 10). From the first step into this place we felt welcome and relaxed. The location right by the beach and the decor is for us the perfect retreat. It quickly became a place where we both wanted to spend every minute of our stay and also from where we easily explored both nature and Auckland city. At the house we enjoyed the seaview from the spa and the "magic" couch-corner. The ferry is only 10 min. walk away and the ferry trip was a beautiful scenic route and a perfect start on our Auckland City sightseeing day. All in all an unforgetable experience to stay at this retreat!
Thank you Peter and Conni for the kind words and we hope you get to return to New Zealand soon.
Perfect home from home
The house was perfect for our stay in NZ, felt at home straight away & the children settled in immediately enjoying the garden, beach & hot tub. There is everything you could possibly need for comfort and convenience. We would definitely stay again.
It was great that you and your family enjoyed the house and the pleasure of having the beach at the bottom of the garden. You are welcome back anytime.
