The Tower House is situated a pleasant downhill walk away from the beach with a choice of the road or bush track for the uphill return. Around the corner is Only Fools and Horses' swimming pool with Horse Hire available a little further on.

Muriwai, on Auckland's unspoilt wild West Coast, 35 minutes from Downtown Auckland and 50 mins from the Airport, is noted for its Gannet Colony, Golf Course, 30-mile surfing Beach and its proximity to adventure activities in Woodhill Forest and to walks and trails for all abilities. There are tennis courts and two cafes and a dairy. Waimauku and Kumeu are noted for their wineries, wedding venues and restaurants and there are Hot Pools at Helensville.

The Tower House has extensive decks and verandahs allowing outdoor living in all but the very worst storms and with numerous bifold doors the house, in fine weather, can be opened to the elements and to the constant activity of the sky and the sea. The third 'bathroom' is outdoors on the back deck. A log fire keeps the house warm in winter.

Two-thirds of the house, which measures some 300 sq m, was built as an extension to the original, improved cottage. The house has been used as a family home.

The Tower House has been used for retreats, seminars, corporate events and as a film set. The house is particularly well suited for families and groups of families - children are welcome. All sorts of other groups have also stayed. The Tower House aims to provide exceptional value for large numbers.

  • The house is amazing / gigantic

    The house is amazing / gigantic. 12 of us has room to spare - with separate areas for kids and adults. The owlish tower is a fantastic spot to watch a sunset from.

    Stunning property - tranquil, comfortable and big enough to absorb everybody. Lots of books! A restorative for the spirit. This was our second time, and I expect we'll be back again.

  • This house is AMAZING

    This house is AMAZING. We were looking for somewhere for a choir retreat and it's perfect as there is a big living room and lots of space for up to 14 adults. The tower is also really cool - and great for singing! Thanks for making an amazing weekend even more magical. :)
