About this Holiday House

Relaxing coastal retreat just one hour from Auckland. * Expansive views over the harbour from the entire property, including the bathtub under the stars. * Quiet, relaxing and peaceful. Very private, no neighbours nearby. Tucked away on a corner of farm. * Handy to winery, golf course, beach, light house, farm, fishing, beach for swimming. Small cosy retreat, 1 hours drive from Auckland. Cliff top views of Manukau Harbour and Auckland City lights. Very private and quiet. Bathtub under the stars overlooking the bay and the city. Close to golf course, winery, light house and beach. The property has been designed to suit a responsible couple who want a private, quiet, relaxing break away from it all. There is no TV or stereo, only the lapping of waves on the beach below, the wind in the pine trees and the occasional Tui. Take a book and relax or, if you prefer, there are local activities (golf, fishing, walking, etc). Only 1 hours commute to Auckland city. This property is not suitable for children and/or extra guests (maximum 2 responsible adults). No smoking, pets, drugs, parties. Please note that this is a fairly remote rural property. Most of the time there is no one there, so it’s not possible to leave perishable supplies such as milk at the cottage. There are no shops nearby and you will need to bring milk and any other sundries that you need with you. Special conditions: No smoking, pets, parties, drugs. Maximum of 2 responsible adults, no children. ** 10% Discount for stays of 5 nights or longer **

Micaela Daniel
Fantastic place. Such a lovely view and birdsong
This little piece of paradise is the perfect spot to retreat to for a break from it all. Beautifully secluded but with all the thoughtful touches to make for a restful & comfortable stay. Highlights have to be the bath tub with a view and the hike to the lighthouse across the farm. Be prepared for a serious climb but worth the effort to get to the lighthouse & the farm has stunning views. Hosts were lovely & a pleasure to deal with. Will be sure to stay again.
