This is our personal holiday home. It was originally the honeymoon suite of the Coach Trail Villas and is a wonderful place for a couple to get away and relax.

It is called The Attic and the bedroom, situated upstairs, is a spacious, quaint attic style.

Fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and laundry, with all the comforts of home. 2 minute walk from the thermal resort, however the apartment is in a complex that has it's own thermal spa and swimming pool for more private relaxation. This pool area is for paying guests only and all guests are expected to be considerate of the other residents and follow the pool rules.

A short walk to the lovely quiet beach where you can swim, kayak, paddle board etc. There are many sea birds breeding on the beach.

Overlooks Wenderholm Regional Park which is a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk and offers scenic walks with abundant bird life.

Close to Orewa which offers an abundance of shops, restaurants and a popular beach. Only 30 minutes drive from Auckland City. Many farmers and craft markets nearby at weekends.

The quaint and historic Puhoi village is a 10 minutes drive away and is well worth a visit. Many beautiful, scenic walks close by. A library of books to read and a collection of DVDs is available to watch.

Special conditions: Strictly no smoking. The swimming pool is shared by all residents and users are expected to be considerate of others. As this is an Attic Apartment, there are stairs to the unit and to the bedroom. These are not difficult to manage, but please bear in mind if you have mobility issues. This apartment is not suitable for children.

  • Stunning location and views

    Stunning location and views. This holiday home is very beautifully decorated. I book it for friends and associates regularly and they always love their time at The Attic.

  • Great little bolt hole so close to Auckland

    Great little bolt hole so close to Auckland. Many things to do in this part of NZ. Travelled to Puhoi to visit the buildings and pub and on to Puhoi cheese. Its just a short journey through to Walkworth as well. Great walking around Waiwera includingthe track across to Wenderholm and up the river from the village. Food was good at the cafe. Pool in the complex always great to relax in. I have stayed before and will be back again.

  • A perfect, quiet hideaway,with lovely views out over the Waiwera estuary

    A perfect, quiet hideaway,with lovely views out over the Waiwera estuary. Lovely furnishings and atmosphere, highlighted by the owner's own wonderful photography. Only dipped out on 5 stars as you do have to cart your gear up a 'few' stairs, but the high view almost balances that out. Great hot pools, beach walks and Wenderholm just a few minutes away. Do yourself a favour and take a break here.
