This quaint '50s home is a 2 bedroom free standing house with a detached sleep out. Using both buildings sleeps up to 9 people comfortably. There is also lawn space for tents plus an additional outdoor shower (hot!!) and toilet. Recently renovated, you have all facilities needed to make for an enjoyable stay away from home, whether you're a couple or a group.

Centrally located with food outlets right at your doorstep, shopping and movie theatre just a casual stroll up the street, the beach just a five minute walk away, parks for children to play at, boat charter tours nearby, view of the cruise ships coming into Pilot Bay, the infamous 'Mauao' to climb, and ample outdoor activities to partake in.

It's worth noting that due to the amazing central location, on a weekend there can be some music heard from local bars but this doesn't tend to bother people and is quiet at an acceptable hour.

Overnight weekend stays will only be accepted three days before the booking. Preference will be given to booking requests of two or more nights on the weekends. Overnight stays during the week are fine.

Feel free to contact us if you have any queries.

Special conditions: The sun drenched courtyard between the house and sleepout is perfect for casual entertaining. Facilities include large tables, gas BBQ, outdoor bathroom and even a hot shower. Large lawns front and back are great for play or additional tents allowed with prior approval. We have lovely neighbours who we get on well with and we'd like to keep it that way, therefore no parties thanks. They will inform us, or the authorities if needed. Smoking allowed outside only.

  • Good location in fairly easy walking distance of most places

    Good location in fairly easy walking distance of most places. The house is fine for a beach holiday home: plenty of space, nice area for BBQ outside with shade and protection from wind, books and games for the kids inside and pretty much everything you need to be comfortable. It's not the most modern of places but cool nevertheless. One watch out: there are effectively 2 bedrooms in the main house and 1 annexe and each of these has a 3rd bed either in an alcove or the same space.

    The property was exactly what we were after - easy walking to hockey turf, beach, shops and bars. Not a flash bach so very reasonably priced and perfect for families. Only (slight) negative is that there is a service road that runs alongside which is noisy with rubbish collections/deliveries but this didn't bother us. I would definitely stay there again.

    The property is very nice but there is a damp smell in the sleep out and in the main bedroom, but apart from that it's in a good spot. We would definitely come again.
