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 & 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.

  • 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.

  • Close to beaches and local shops

    Close to beaches and local shops. Short drive to Browns Bay for larger numbers of shops, restaurants etc. Large house over 3 levels providing plenty of space if a larger group were staying.

  • Nice, quiet location

    Nice, quiet location. Very spacious house, nicely furnished. Master bedroom bit musty (as downstairs rooms tend to be). Nice decked area. Good internet. We enjoyed our stay!
