  • Stunning beach and bush setting, just a short stroll to both the surf beach and Lake Wainamu.
  • Landscaped gardens and beautful decks with fabulous sea views.
  • Within driving distance of many walks, wineries, wave pools, and only 35mins from downtown Auckland.

A truly magical setting in the heart of Bethells Beach township just a stones throw from the surf club on the edge of the Waitakere Ranges.

Stroll from the surf club along the beach and take in the wonder of the wild west coast, the scenery is spectacular!
Your accomodation provides the gateway to any number of incredible bush and beach walks or simply stay home and soak up the ambience of your bach with its landscaped garden and native flora.

If you've got kids then they're going to love boogie boarding down the awesome sand dunes on the edge of Lake Wainamu, there is plenty of safe swimming there too. For the more adventurous take a walk around the lake then cool off in the waterfalls.

There's also rock fishing and the well known O' Neils surf beach within walking distance and a 10 minute drive will take you to the Waitakere golf club with its amazing bush backdrop.

Through the winter, take one of the many local walks and return home to hot chocolate and a warm fire. Or alternatively, head to Henderson (20 mins drive) where you will find wave pools, movies, shopping, Crystal Mountain (theme park for kids) and other activities.

During the summer months sample some renowned West Coast food and drink at the Bethells Cafe.

 Great value for money in an excellent location. There was lots of space for two families with little children, comfortable beds, and everything we needed to have a excellent stay. Bethells beach is stunning and there are lots of walks in the area. Good lagoon swimming for kids. Great BBQ and garden. Thank you for sharing your bach with us. 

 Great location. Property is well presented and has a great outlook. 

 What an amazing location and we had an incredible four days of true bliss at the batch. Our family enjoyed every moment of it, and it was great to bring us together without electronics. Lol The scenery just blew us away especially Bethells Beach and Wainamu Lake. Thank you so much for reminding us how beautiful New Zealand truly is. 

 Excellent location close to beach. Very easy to communicate with the owner. Really enjoyed our stay. 

 Great location, and lovely garden but the house is quite basic and perhaps a little too expensive. 

  •  Thanks for your comments. The house is exactly as described and photographed and we have not changed the peak pricing since we listed the property in 2009 even though we are fully booked every summer.
