  • It is So near to Auckland

    It is So near to Auckland. A VERY restful home. Lovely to wake up & enjoy & soak in the view. Can see why it was named "Stillwater." Certainly great for time out, be be still & recharge. We were there in July. Would be a bonus in summer with the kayaking.

  • What can we say we keep coming back

    What can we say we keep coming back........the location is so peaceful yet your a hop skip and jump from all Auckland has to offer, parks,reserves, water sports and shopping !! If you feel like just unwinding and watching the tide come in and out, it's magic, the batch has everything you need for a great getaway,very clean and tidy.
