Charming Mission Bay 3 bdrm with 2 courtyards

 A cute little property, filled with beautiful items the owner has collected on her travels. Walking distance to Mission Bay beach, and a short drive to shops. Our daughter loved the hammock in the garden. 


 Gorgeous place..tastefully decorated with a warm vibe. Set in Waitakere bush with a deck surrounding for meals outdoors or avid little native bird watchers and views to die for of the bay. There is a trampoline and swings which kept my kids entertained. Close to Titirangi Art Gallery, cafe and stores or Green Bay stores and bakery. A short walk to the bay through native bush was great for us all... cant recommend this place enough!!!!

 Heaps of parking, close to supermarket and not too far from central Auckland. 

Stunning refurbished villa

 Sarah and Grant were present when we arrived at the property and provided a few pointers for our stay, which was much appreciated. The house itself was all that it promised and more and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A well proportioned, open, tasteful and bright home, with a much appreciated pool. The house is very close to the city centre, but still has a peaceful feel to it, no real road noise and the neighbours were all very friendly. Thanks Sarah and Grant, we had a great Christmas. 

Parkview Holiday House, next beach to Mission Bay

 This was our second trip to Parkview and we've recommended it to friends. Family-friendly area, 12 min walk to the beach, all mod-cons including wifi.
