Only 45 minutes from central Auckland, this bach is a world away from the hubbub of the city. If you love surfing, or want a retreat close to the sea, this is a wonderful place to stay. The private garden is beautifully maintained and has places where you can lie in the sun or rest in the hammock and read in the shade. It's a short stroll down the hill to Lake Wainamu, for a lovely swim or a long walk; and a quick 2 minute drive to the beach for swimming or surfing at O'Neills. And when you return, just close the big wooden gates to retreat into your own private sanctuary. If it gets cold, just stoke up the log burner for a cozy fire.

There are bush walks - both easy and challenging - in the neighbourhood, and the unique transportable Bethells coffee cart offering food and music on the weekend.

  • House is absolutely fantastic! Definitely a real retreat as cell phone coverage...

    House is absolutely fantastic! Definitely a real retreat as cell phone coverage is slim. House has all the amenities you could ask for and is a perfect location to walk to the beach and lake. The outdoor area is pure bliss to relax in. Would 100% stay again!
