Special Amenities

KUMEU & HUAPAI TOWNSHIPS. Although we are located on a country road the Huapai township is only 1.8km away and the Kumeu township is a further 0.5km. The townships provide shops and services of most types and have about ten cafes and restaurants. Huapai has a library and an arts centre. THE AREAS REAL ATTRACTIONS. the attractions that make the area unique are mostly located outside of the townships. The Kumeu wine and vineyard area has six renowned NZ wineries and a number of smaller ones all from less than 1km to 10km away. Some wineries have award winning restaurants attached and there are about eight facilities catering to country weddings and other events. One of Auckland's best boutique breweries is 6.7 km away - 'Hallertau Brew Bar & Restaurant'. A further 1 minute drive is 'The Riverhead' one of the best of the 'NZ classic pub network'. About 1.5 km away is the Kumeu A&H showground with full event programme for summer. Auckland's best mountain bike park is in the area as well as, Tree tops climbing park; horse treks; 4 wheel drive treks; paint ball adventure parks; golf clubs & driving ranges. There are two of Auckland's iconic west coast beaches nearby. Muriwai is 15 km where you get the best close up view of a large Gannet colony as well as good cafes and a great wilderness area. Bethells [Te Henga] beach is 23km away with a beach side café good surf and superb isolated beaches. To cap it all Auckland CBD is only is only 22 minutes down the motorway [out of rush hour traffic]. For a day exploring downtown Auckland we would recommend a 12 km drive to the West Harbour ferry and the a 30 to 40 minute trip to downtown Auckland.

Theresa
We had a great time. The house is really nice, clean and cute house with a lovely garden area which we could use. We had everything what we need and if we need something more we were very welcome to asked Chris and Tonia. We would come back every time back :-). A big thank you again for your support on my birthday, Chris, and that we were allowed to celebrate on your terrace. Everyone who is looking for nice, quiet surroundings, not far away from the shops, beach or city and lovely hosts is here absolutely right. Theresa, Christiane, Josch

We stayed in Aorangi for a week in January 2015 and had fantastic time. The place is wonderful and quiet, the hosts are friendly and attentive. Thank you very much for the warm welcome.
Sheila & Hilary
We stayed at Aorangi during the month of February & found it very convienent for all our needs. We found it quite comfortable, spottlessly clean & the warm welcome has to get 6 out of 5. Tonio & Chris went out of their way to make sure we had all we needed. Would definitely recommend Aorangi. Sheila & Hilary Dublin, Ireland.
