Description

  • Surrounded by native bush but only a stone's throw from cafes, shops, North Harbour stadium, Massey
  • Sunny, private spot - there are no other houses on the property
  • A perfect stepping stone for travelling north of Auckland

This self contained, one room bush hut is in a unique spot - it's located on a 25 acre bush block next to Albany Scenic Reserve, but is only 5 minutes drive from:

* Albany Westfield mall - cinemas, shopping, supermarkets, restaurants & cafes,

* North Harbour Stadium,

* Massey University,

* Northern motorway exits, Albany Bus Station.

Several beautiful beaches (Long Bay, Browns Bay, Mairangi Bay) and the Okura River Walkway are all close by.

The cabin is nestled in amongst a large stand of nikau and other natives. You'll hear local tui, wood pigeon, morepork and maybe a couple of our 'tame' pukeko, but not much else.... There is a small stream running past the front of the cabin (so small children need to be watched when outside).

The cabin is fairly basic and been refurbished using recycled materials, with minimal impact on the natural surroundings; the water supply is fresh, filtered rain water (no connection to town supply or public sewage system). It is ideal to get the feeling of being 'away from it all'. However, modern additions incude a largeTV with DVD player and freeview channels, gas hob and all the necessary kitchen equipment to be self-sufficient.

NB. the wee bathroom is accessed off the covered porch (see photos).

During cooler months there is an oil filled heater plus electric blanket on the main bed.

There is only patchy mobile coverage (no Telecom at the cabin itself).

Checkin: 1.00pm (or earlier by request, if available)

Checkout:10.00am (or later by request, if available)
