About this Holiday House

Our holiday house is sunny and comfortable with floor to ceiling windows that provide some of the best panoramic views in the area encompassing Muriwai Beach, the gannet colony, Maori Bay, Motutara Island and the nearby hills. The house has been renovated so that it has privacy from neighbours, passing cars and pedestrians. It has been designed to maximise views from the living areas and bedrooms. The lounge/kitchen/dining area is open plan and a wraparound deck provides shade or sun any time of the day. The kitchen is very well equipped. Towels, linen & a cleaning service are provided as well as pantry basics, tea & coffee. The bedrooms are fully carpeted and the beds and mattresses are high quality. Muriwai Beach is a coastal community roughly a 40-minute drive from Auckland. It is part of a breath-taking coastline stretching 60 kilometres, interrupted only by streams and rivers with a long black sand surf beach. There are trails to a gannet colony on the cliff-tops and islands just below the house. The colony is unique because of its easy access and how close you can to the birds. There is a huge variety of walks; including a boardwalk that hugs the coastline, Goldies Bush Walk and off leash areas for dogs. There are many mountain biking trails and nearby is Woodhill Mountain Biking Park and Tree Adventures. Much of the land at the southern end of the beach is part of the Muriwai Regional Park which includes an 18-hole true links golf course. There is a horse park, horse riding and 4WD access to the beach. Also paragliding, hang gliding, beach and rock fishing, body surfing, boogie boarding and an excellent surf school. There are many excellent restaurants, vineyards, music and festivals in the surrounding area. Muriwai has a café with takeaways. Please note that the house is on tank water so care needs to be taken with water use.

Clifftops Muriwai has everything you need for a relaxing getaway. The house is large, modern and clean, with cute retro touches and an extremely well equipped kitchen. Not forgetting, the most beautiful outlook. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck for hours, taking in the sea views and stunning sunsets. I would recommend taking some yummy food and drinks and never leaving the house! Ruth provided loads of information about surrounding activities which was so appreciated as we are not from Auckland. The house is a short walk (or shorter drive ;) ) to the beach for swimming and surfing, the gannet colony and access to part of the gorgeous Hillary walk. The nearby Woodhill mountain bike park was also a lot of fun. We even joined the teenagers hooning along the beach in a 4wd at low tide which was entertaining too. We had a great stay and highly recommend this property!
