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, an organic vegetable garden and a 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!

    Location was close to the yacht club which was fantastic. We will stay again when we're at regattas in Murray's Bay.

  • We loved our stay

    We loved our stay. The pictures don't do the place justice. Very relaxing and peaceful. Home away from home.

  • The location is such a beautiful area and the room is very...

    The location is such a beautiful area and the room is very comfortable for a suited couple but can fit more as the area in the rooms and living area is large and also warm, but also the complemented basket of fruit, milk and cereal and shampoo and conditioner meant pretty much we were set although we arrived with a lot of shopping. Highly recommend the are, property, facility and all that it offers, particularly in Summer as we went during winter and as a result was confined to the indoors
