Surprise your loved one with the break of a lifetime. Nowhere else will you find a real photographic studio that provides you with luxurious accommodation, superb facilities & the opportunity for a romantic photoshoot!

In case you're missing some of your home comforts we have a huge TV, computer, internet access - your every need is catered for.

If you really want to leave the apartment (and why would you?), it is only five minutes (by car) to the local beach & any number of cafes & restaurants. Or you can venture further down the road to Takapuna. Shoppers can get their retail fix (& movies at Event cinema) from Albany mall just a stone's throw away. And walkers will delight at the fabulous coastal walkway that goes to the beautiful Long Bay in one direction - taking in Brown's Bay - & historic Devonport in the other - via Milford. For golf fanatics, Pupuke Golf Club is five-minute's drive.

We are just 25 minutes to the city, & not too far afield from an abundance of amazing wineries (Matakana & Kumeu boast some of the best vineyards around), fantastic beaches & stunning countryside. At the weekends there are many markets around Auckland that are worth a visit.

Also nearby: AUT & Massey University, Millennium Institute, North Harbour Stadium & Bruce Mason Centre.

If you have other guests who are looking for accommodation, or if you wish to stay longer than just a couple of days, we also have the Bellbird Apartment (see separate listing).

Special conditions: * Free wireless Internet is provided on a 'reasonable use' policy. * The breakfast tray & bottle of wine is by request (for a fee) * Damages will be charged for. * BBQ by request. * While we do not ask for a deposit we do request a client's credit card details to act as surety. We welcome guests to the studio & trust that they will respect the quiet of our neighbourhood.

  • The 'bach' is delightful and very interesting in its design and facilities

    The 'bach' is delightful and very interesting in its design and facilities. Our home is in the same locality (two bays along the coast) and we just needed a comfortable bed while workmen made our home unusable over several nights. We know and delight in the situation, the adjacent woodland and the nearby beaches and shopping. but we had no occasion to use many of the facilities provided in the home. The wifi worked well for us. 100%|1x Feb 2016
