About this Holiday House

Short and long term stays are welcome at Bush Sand and Sea at Bethells Beach. We offer you the privacy of being our only Guests on 10 acres. This makes you special and we enjoy personalising every stay to meet your needs. It is an exceptional one bed room-ed, self contained and elegant accommodation nestled in New Zealand’s native bush of the Waitakere Ranges of Auckland’s Wild West Coast. A luxury tilt down bed in the lounge means 4 adults can all sleep well here. Continental breakfast plus ingredients to prepare your own cooked breakfast available on request at additional cost. Longer stay options available. Enjoy the peace, tranquillity and seclusion of this environmentally-conscious retreat. Explore the bush walk with its bridges, board walk and stream. Enjoy our late departure policy after visiting the glow worms in the evening. Long term stays from May to October 2019, 1-6 monthly long stays will be negotiable with us. We are very flexible.

Lovely place! And friendly owners with good communication.

Lyn and Alan are a lovely couple and they know how to make you feel right at home, nothing was too much trouble. The unit itself is VERY comfortable with everything you would need and more. We found high quality linen and mattresses on both beds, quality appliances including reverse cycle air con. Our stay was four months for a work contract in Kumeu and we found the unit to have enough space to get settled for the longer haul but it would work just as well for a weekend. The location is close enough to the city to spend a day or night and be back for a sleep in. Bethells Beach is spectacular and the beach cafe is a treat on the weekends but if the weather's bad Station Cafe is about 15 minutes drive where they brew a local coffee roaster's range... mmmmm Will miss the amazing views and ease of living in an open sunny and warm space. We couldn't recommend Bush Sand and Sea highly enough or the lovely hosts either.
Response from Owner
Thank you for the thoughtful review, but mainly for being such great long term Guests. You were exactly the best Tenant any place could have. We loved the way you adapted the space to suit Andy during his working sojourn with the Film Industry in NZ. We miss you both!
Absolutely stunning place with wonderful hosts - we just wish we could have stayed longer, next time definitely. Everything you could possibly need is there, the views are amazing and you even have your own little bush walk down to see the glow worms at night! What a stunning little piece of New Zealand.
Response from Owner
Thanks for taking the time to do a review for Bush Sand and Sea B&B. To show our appreciation, we offer $20 to all returning Guests. Kind regards, Lyn and Alan
