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!

    We just spent two wonderful weeks at The Tropical Garden By The Sea. The unit is comfortable and well appointed with a beautiful private garden. We were steps away from the Coastal Walkway and a number of beaches. Shopping and cafes were also within walking distance. If you do not wish to drive while visiting Auckland this location is a good alternative, particularly if you do not mind walking or taking the bus. There is regular bus service to downtown Auckland and other city destinations.

    Owner/manager responds:

    What a delight it was to host this great couple from Canada who were returning after an absence of 16years. They made use of every minute of every day and boy did they cover some ground! Mostly by foot, I might add. They made themselves familiar with the bus routes on the North Shore and to and from the city, leaving detailed instructions in our booklet for future guests. That was most appreciated! We enjoyed their company and hope they have a great time on the rest of their NZ sojourn.
