I cannot say enough about this house and Stuart and Carole, the owners. This place is all about getting away from it all--in comfort. We stayed three nights and I would say that is about the minimum reasonable stay. Karekare is about 40 minutes from Auckland CBD but the last 20 kms are arduous to say the least; it is without a doubt no road to try at night for the first time.

Do not let the niggle of the road stop you. You will be well rewarded. The solitude and peace of the area alone are worth the trip. The house is extremely comfortable for four guests. Much to my liking there is nothing flash about the place, just the earthy, comfortable holiday home anyone would be very happy to own. The fact that it is in a world-class location makes it all the more wonderful.

Although the beach is several minutes walk, you can see and hear the surf from the house. The beach is truly iconic. Black sand, fierce turquoise surf, bush complete with pohutukawa glades filled with Tui birds, fantails and scores of others. The cliffs along the beach are about 300 meters high and form a breathtaking backdrop for the sea and create an awesome echo of the surf. The beach stretches for as much as a half kilometer in places at low tide. Whatipu wetland is easy walking distance and is tucked into the cliffs behind huge blacksand dunes. We saw black swans there a year ago. Karekare falls are graceful, lacy and soothing. There are miles and miles of tracks for tramping that can be joined essentially from the doorstep of the house.

Stuart and Carole are great. They understand that folks come to a place like Karekare to "escape" so they gave us plenty of privacy but left us their numbers and their son's in case of any problems. We had none (except for having to leave). When we met them to settle up, we wound up talking with them for some time. I would love to spend a couple of weeks there in the future.
