Description

  • Peaceful and private
  • Spacious
  • Relaxing

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.

  • Great location for getting to Auckland airport

    Great location for getting to Auckland airport. Also visit unexpectedly impressive Hunua falls and Auckland Botanic gardens nearby. Friendly owners and their pets welcomed us instantly into their rural homestay. Comfortable bed, lovely bathroom and own sitting area, owners share rest of house.

  • Rural and tranquil - but not isolated

    Rural and tranquil - but not isolated. Hosts(Simon s parents) are super hospitable. Modern pleasant room. Access to great kitchen / dining area. A little hard to find. You actually see the postbox of 136 first and 134 is discreet on the gatepost (shared drive). It was dusk when we arrived - so probably didn t help.

  • Felt like coming home after a very long journey

    Felt like coming home after a very long journey. The hospitality and kindness of the hosts, Judy and Mike are outstanding. I can't express it as good in english as in german, but I try: This is a very unique place, great surrounding, nice pets (loved the dogs), and Judy and Mike build a home with their own hands that makes you feel, the holidays should last longer. Was hard to leave, but I had to. Thank you so much for a few wonderful days in your home.
