  • Very Very Quiet area. Less than 2 minutes from motorway yet no road traffic noise.
  • The house amazingly is surrounded by trees yet very sunny.
  • Bird life is amazing. I leave fruit and seed for the birds so you are never short of entertainment.

My home is truly a hidden gem. It is sunny, has a huge deck surrounded by trees and a beautiful view of the stretch of the Upper Harbour between Herald Island and Greenhithe.
There is a little beach just 100 metres down the road and walking tracks all over Greenhithe.
Access to the motorways is about 1km away, as are the shops, parks, bars and restaurants.
There is a bus stop 5 mins walk away. The bird life here is magic. The tuis are singing as I write this. The house is private and there is virtually no traffic noise. Rahui Road is a quiet little street. Greenhithe still has that friendly village feel to it.
The 1970's brick and tile house has recently been redecorated throughout.
I pride myself on supplying comfortable beds.
The kitchen is a pleasure to work in.
The latest addition to the house is a log burner making it a cosy winter holiday destination. [Firewood supplied.]
There is ample off street parking for 4 cars.
The section is 1700 sq mtr. with an area of trees which is perfect for children to go adventuring.
If privacy, sun, trees, simplicity, taking photos of birds and lack of road noise rate for you, this house has a lot going for it.
North Harbour Stadium is about a10 minutes drive.
Linen and basic pantry items are included in the tariff.

  •  Really beautiful location. Downstairs area had a quite musty smell and seemed very damp. Upstairs not a problem. LOVED the tui and other birdlife! Enjoyed our weekend, didn't seem like we were in a big city, Very handy to a great wee shopping/eating area with excellent cafes! 

    •  Hi, I have had a few independent nostrils check out the room downstairs re the musty/ damp situation and we are wondering if it was the smell of the new carpet mat in the room. It has been reeaaaaaaally wet here over the last few weeks so I figured if it was going to be damp it would surely be damp now but they did not think it was. I am sorry it was not ideal for you. Re the Tui. They have chosen to nest in the tree right by the deck. Building has just started. Amazing!! 

  •  Lovely and peaceful retreat after a long flight from Australia. Arrived with a pantry full of yummy things for breakfast, a sunlit lounge and a deck full of beautiful birds. Lou even gave us a book on birds when we arrived so we could identify them. Very clean and comfy beds, the kitchen is great to use. The garden was spectacular and the view to the bay was delightful. Thank you Lou for a wonderful stay. 

  •  The property is in quiet street overlooking water. The house is surrounded by vegetation with birds frequently coming to the balcony. The driveway winds its way steeply to the house, a bit difficult to negotiate. Better to park lower down. Really enjoyed the house.
