No other Guests anywhere near this apartment! Explore 10 acres of regenerating native bush, using "Sheila's Track" down to and across the stream. Enjoy nature at its best, plenty of peace and quiet, enjoy the bird-life.

Sadly, the Cascades Kauri Park and many of the collection of lovely bush walks throughout the Waitakere Ranges eg. Goldie’s bush walk (1 hr return walk to Mokoroa Falls) are closed due to Kauri Dieback Disease. You can still drive along the Scenic drive, enjoying stunning views of Auckland, Putamatekeo summit. Visit the amazing Arataki Visitor Centre, a 25 minute drive away and enjoy the nearby Titirangi Village, with Lopdell House and the Te Uru Gallery, cafes, restaurants and bars.

Easy access to the wild West Coast of Auckland with its beaches and walkways. Take a 10 minute drive to dramatic Bethells Beach, with its towering cliff-tops, blow-holes, sand dunes and sea caves; coastal walks, including a 15 minute walk along the beach to stunning O'Neils Bay (the local surf spot).

Very luckily, our coastal walks are still open and you CAN STILL walk from Te Henga to Muriwai (4-6 hr walk). See the striking sand dunes and swim in the land-locked Lake Wainamu.

Visit the regionally-significant Te Henga wetland – the largest in the region and former Maori Pa site and view the stunning Waitakere dam, source of the majority of Auckland's water.

Explore the West Coast of Auckland, as featured in Hercules, Zena, Warrior Princess and acclaimed movie, The Piano. Enjoy the Muriwai-Bethells Coastal Clifftop Walk-a breath-taking experience (part of the famed Hillary Trail)! View Muriwai beach's renowned Gannet colony.

  • Te Henga is an area that we like to come to get-away...

    Te Henga is an area that we like to come to get-away from it all and unwind and relax. We have stayed elsewhere and all are lovely but we especially liked bush, sand and sea for the quietness and friendly hosts. We will come back again ??

    The Bach was immaculate and situated in a stunning location with views over Bethells beach. We really enjoyed our stay relaxing here and listening to all the birds. We had everything you could need and Lyn provided a beautiful homemade breakfast. It was a great start to the new year and would happily return! Thanks Lyn and Alan.
