Coast Retreat is truly one of a kind. The only two houses set on Coast Road, the Bach and the Studio offer uninhibited, grandstand views across Muriwai Golf Course to the sea. Experience the warmth of all day, year round sun in a ruggedly beautiful west coast setting, just 30 minutes from Auckland CBD.

This listing is for The Studio - ideal for couples, small families and groups of up to four. For larger groups check out The Bach, a larger family home next door: listing number 43009 on Book a Bach.

Perfect for golfers, honeymooners, surfers, or busy Aucklander's in need of a no fuss, rejuvenating hiatus from the city. Towels, linen & a cleaning service are provided as well as tea & coffee.

Muriwai is Auckland's West Coast playground, with nearby vineyards and restaurants, a renowned New Zealand Golf Course, the popular Maori Bay & Muriwai Beach, Woodhill Mountain Bike Park tracks, public tennis courts and a skate park, & plenty of beach activities - paragliding, surfing, BMX, fishing, land sailing & much more.

We guarantee you'll feel a million miles from the city whether you choose to venture outdoors or relax on the deck with a book!

In the evening, soak in the outdoor heated bath under the stars in your private courtyard, enjoy a DVD or visit one of the many great restaurants and vineyards in nearby Waimauku & Kumeu.

Coast Retreat offers all the comforts of home in a cosy, coastal, clean, fully furnished, sunny studio accommodation, plus one separate downstairs bedroom. The kitchen has a fridge & microwave, 2 hotplates and all the necessary utensils. We offer free Wifi & a desk to work/study.

It's perfect for a couples retreat but can also be made suitable for two couples or can accommodate small children on request. We have a spare mattress available.

    Loved the views and outdoor bath! Also appreciated the tasteful, gorgeous furnishings and diverse books.found the road noise a bit close for comfort at times.clean and spacious. Quite expensive compared to other places.very little coffee and no tea towels.good place to reconnect with the wild spirit of Muriwai.

    This is a beautiful property that suited us perfectly as we prepared for my wedding in nearby Kumeu. Great location, comfortable beds and we loved using the outdoor shower. Thank you for the stay!

    the bach was very nice, all the necessities with a stylish interior and nicely furnished. Muriwai is a great and wild place - I am a west auckland local so wanted to bring a friend to visit here so they got a different perspective. They loved it! Was a good spot for visiting riverhead, the hot rod show and my family.
