Private 3 acre waterfront property overlooking Manukau Harbour. 180 degree views. Fully equipped 3 bedroom house with separate cottage sleeping 12 in total. Private setting with room for the kids to play and explore. Beach access via short bush walk on the property or 1 minute drive/5 minute walk via road to safe swimming beach, boat ramp and reserve. Plenty of parking for cars and boats with a fish filleting bench to tend to your catch after an enjoyable day fishing on the Manukau Harbour. If the weather turns sour there are loads of toys and boardgames available to keep the kids amused. These are setup in the kids play area in the garage which adjoins the main living area. There is a large log fire in the lounge which keeps the house cosy and warm in the winter months with loads of easily acessible firewood. House opens onto extensive decking for bbqs and enjoying the harbour views. Ideally setup to accommodate 2-3 families wanting to enjoy your week ends or holidays together or equally as enjoyable for smaller groups or couples wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

This is the ideal weekend destination for Aucklanders as Grahams Beach is approx 30 minutes drive from Waiuku or just over an hour from Auckland. There is plenty to discover on the peninsula from beach and bush walks, art gallery, vineyard(next door), not to mention all of the secluded and pristine bays to explore. 10 minutes drive away at Matakawau is a service station, general store and takeaways. The Awhitu Golf Club offer a bistro on Friday evenings.

 Loads of space for the 9 of us (two families). Loved having the big dining table - lots of great conversations happened around it. Excellent kitchen facilities and the sleepout was a great escape for the kids (which was great for us parents too!) Great access to the beach through the cool bush trail you've made. The few things that needed attention I have emailed owner directly and she was receptive to feedback. 

 Great place to stay. Quiet, private and with its own access to the beach. Lovely!! Added bonus of the boutique winery next door :) 

 we stayed only two nights and wished it was longer, very peaceful and quiet which we loved, caught some amazing fish off the beach at the bottom of the track at low tide, awesome! The house has all the comforts of home with a big kitchen that has everything you need, we hope to be back again soon, one of our favorite places so far, thank you so much. 

 Lets just say I hope that Grahams Beach stays a well kept secret. This home and its location are very special. Very comfortable accommodation with everything you might want supplied and the added bonus of Awhitu Wines right next door. And our dogs loved it too!! 

 Great bach, fantastic spot. We all had a wonderful time, would stay again
