You will love your stay at my well-maintained and well appointed cottage that has everything you need for a great and comfortable holiday.

Ideal for larger extended family groups, with bedrooms across two levels and two bathrooms. There are large dinning and sitting room areas and a purpose buiIt outdoor entertaining area with comfy couches, a BBQ and an outdoor mini fridge. There is a further wrap around deck at the back with additional outdoor seating, so you can follow the sun! Light and bright kitchen generously stocked, includes all whiteware.

In this four bedroom property there are two master bedrooms with queen bed suites, and two bedrooms with bunk beds. The rooms are furnished with top quality linen and Sheridan towels. Beautifully styled with comfort for larger groups in mind.

The cottage is set on a secluded 670m2 section and offers a private and tranquil place to enjoy a holiday. Entertain on the deck with the outdoor furniture supplied. It has everything you would need.

Prime coastal location:

Winston's Cove (450m from the cottage) is one of Auckland's best kept secrets and is an ideal spot for a swimming and relaxing. It's our favourite little beach spot in Auckland.

Waiake Beach (650m from the cottage) is a beautiful small bay that is perfect all tide swimming and boating. It has a sheltered estuary to one side of the beach which is great and for kids. There are also a number of picnic/bbq facilities and a children's playground just off the beach. For the best home-made ice cream, head over the road to Tides Cafe and enjoy great coffee and food too.

    daughter & 3 grandchildren, 8,9,10 yrs week of the school holidays. What a disappointment. living areas were v nice,the double bedroom & bathroom upstairs OK, 2 bunkrooms very cramped,no dressing table clothes etc were kept squashed in their bags.My bedroom downstairs was very musty damp made me feel nauseousTried to dry it out with a cracked heater but this smelt & was dangerous.Shower toilet no vanity.Moved to bunkroom no linen found duvet in cupboard. Read by torch so dark.

    Owner/manager responds:

    I am sorry your expectations were disappointed. I personally prepared the house and left it in excellent condition, clean and well ventilated. Following arrival my guests texted to say the house was 'perfect'. Later in the stay she rang with concerns. Her demand for an immediate cancellation and a full refund was met with an open invitation to meet and discuss her perceived issues, which she declined and instead completed her stay. The property has a large heat pump and several portable heaters.

    Well located, an easy walk to the beach, although a little more difficult coming back up the hill. Lovely beaches to get to, easy access to a small supermarket, takeaways, and coffee shop. House itself was showing some signs of wear, so wouldn't suit those looking for the height of luxury, but accomodated us very well, and was very comfortable. The promised resident Tui was regularly present, which was an added highlight.

  • Very clean and comfortable large home, we enjoyed our weekend there

    Very clean and comfortable large home, we enjoyed our weekend there. Well appointed with tasteful decor, our large group had everything we needed. Cold and rainy while we were there so we were grateful for the large heat pump and heater which keep home warm. Owner was particularly pleasant and friendly. Thanks, neat stay and we will be back.

  • steep driveway

    steep driveway. So if taking older family members be aware. Access will be difficult for them.
