Seafront bach with splendid views across the Manakau harbour to Auckland City. This sunny four bedroom bach is ready for you to move in for a restful holiday.

Privacy and feeling of remoteness makes it hard to believe that central Auckland is just over an hour away. Sandy beaches are metres away with walks continuing around the coastline, through native bush, farmland and regional park, exposing more and more coastal views.

When the tide is in, it is ideal for water sports and fishing with the convenience of a jetty 400 metres down the road.

The nearest service station and dairy is a pleasant 5 minute drive away and if anything more is required the township of Waiuku is a further 20 minutes.

West Coast black sand beach and sand dunes only 10-15 minutes drive away.

This northfacing 1970’s bach is on a full section so it has plenty of room. It has open plan living with a sliding door opening onto a large sun drenched deck. It has beds for up to seven people with two large (kings and queen) and two single bedded bedrooms. The bathroom has a shower, toilet, handbasin and a laundry tub. There is a single garage with internal access.

Large backyard with lots of room to throw a ball, play cricket or petanque.

Long term rental available. Enquire for rates.

  • Very much a quintessential kiwi bach

    Very much a quintessential kiwi bach. Basic but comfortable and adequate. As we were from overseas it would have been ideal to have had a linen hire option and an option to have the bach more stocked with necessities such as kitchen and bathroom items but we coped and made do and everything was as advertised/represented so at least we could be prepared! A speaker or stereo would be nice for background music but otherwise the place is well equipped. Lovely outlook from the deck across the bay!
