Perfectly positioned for peace and privacy, the home is tucked discreetly down an 800m driveway. Terraced lawns and three acres of pristine ancient bush come alive with native bird song on fine days. The effect is instantly calming. Complete with all modern conveniences, the interior of this residence exudes a charming old-world feel.

The spacious guest bedroom available and offered here, with its own ensuite bathroom, makes for a cosy retreat.

Solid timber floors and a large wood burner warm the large dining area. The open-plan space also embraces a beautiful, traditional-style kitchen with a generous butler's pantry. High, sarked, Cape Cod-style ceilings create a wonderful sense of space in the living areas. The feeling is enhanced by big bi-fold windows that open to magnificent views of the surrounding lush, native greenery.

  • Thanks Judy and Mike

    Thanks Judy and Mike. We had a fabulous time at your home, truly a home away from home. The ensuite we stayed in was beautiful, spotless and tidy despite our last minute booking and the hosts were very accommodating with our dog and one year old. We really enjoyed the genuine hospitality.

  • This was a wonderful, relaxed and quiet location to stay

    This was a wonderful, relaxed and quiet location to stay. It provided me with a real home away from home whilst I was working for the week. Judy and Mike were very accommodating and I would definitely recommend it for people looking for a immaculate hide away that's only 1/2 hour or so to Auckland airport.

  • Superb accommodation within family home, beautiful bedroom and ensuite

    Superb accommodation within family home, beautiful bedroom and ensuite. The house is in a lovely quiet location, very secure, lovely wildlife. Quite a long driveway to access the house but again this offers security. Judy and Mike are wonderful hosts, so friendly and welcoming , we were made to feel very welcome, as if we were family. Lovely, lovely people.
