Seafront bach with splendid views across the Manakau harbour to Auckland City. Renovated 2010 with new wool carpet and painted throughout, 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 (queen and double beds) and two smaller (single beds) 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.

Special conditions: Boat in garage not for use.

    We're always delighted when people come back, because we love it there, but do not manage to get there as often as we'd like now we live further away!

    May be hard to locate the batch for a first timer to this area. Great view property, Lighthouse is a must for someone visiting Awhitu.

    For anyone who fears difficulty finding it Google Maps shows the exact location and the Street View shot is also helpful (though a few years out of date (mainly, I think, more growth).,+Awhitu+2684/@-37.1087842,174.6631143,17z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x6d0d5e96a17780e9:0x8c2af801d16c0d29!8m2!3d-37.1075906!4d174.6647397

  • Had a lovely weekend just chilling

    Had a lovely weekend just chilling. Rained but took a couple of long walks in the area then relaxed back at the bach with some wine. Not too far to waiuku for a bit of op shopping.
