Situated in the East Coast Bays of Auckland's North Shore the accommodation is ideal for couples or singles and would suit those visiting family who prefer to have their own facilities.

So close to beaches and cliff top walkways yet totally private with own entrance and opening out onto flat outdoor area.

Guests have full access to the garden and a shared solar heated salt water swimming pool.

Our neighbourhood is endowed with beautiful sea views and coastal scenery. We are adjacent to a series of walkways that cover much of the North Shore. Our local village, Mairangi Bay has many cafes, restaurants, a great fruit & vegetable market, fish shop, bakery and fashion shops. A morning stroll down to the beach, along the pipeline to one of the cafes for morning coffee is a must.

Mairangi Bay retains a real village atmosphere while still providing all the shopping options, including womens' fashion, a GREAT shoe shop, giftware,a fantastic bookshop as well as a number of dining options to choose from. A Countdown Supermarket is at the rear of the main thoroughfare.

Depending on whether you are driving, walking or using the bus you are within reach of other large shopping precincts such as Albany and Takapuna and the Northern Busway makes getting into Auckland City a breeze.

Murrays Bay is the home of sailing and where many yachtsman learnt to sail at Murrays Bay Yacht Club. There is always some activity on the water - especially Sundays and all the boats are a great sight to see. Along the 'Pipeline' at Mairangi Surf Club Sunday is also the day for all the 'Little Nippers' training to be future Surf Life Savers.

There are Markets at Mairangi, Browns Bay and Takapuna on the weekend and always something happening on the harbour.

We think we are so lucky to live here and are happy to share it with you!

    Beautiful accommodations with a perfect location. Great layout with a lovely back yard. Nice touch with fruit, cereal, milk and nuts provided when you first arrive. We had a great stay and will definitely stay again as well as recommend to everyone.

  • Great private downstairs accommodation with a lovely garden outlook

    Great private downstairs accommodation with a lovely garden outlook. Everything was clean and tidy. It's the perfect location for quick access to the beach walkways. Having a supply of fresh fruit was much appreciated.

    The accommodation was gorgeous and private with a lovely outlook on the garden. It was very well thought out with everything that you need. Fiona added lots of extras which was a real treat. Very close and convenient to Murray's Bay and Mairangi Bay.

  • Our second stay here and we love it

    Our second stay here and we love it. The apartment is large and airy with plenty of windows to let the light in, the shower is amazing, we loved having Netflix and free wi-fi, and the electric blankets came in very handy for those chilly nights. Communication with Fiona was great and I wouldn't hesitate recommending this place to others. We'll be back!
