Description

  • Native Tui sip from feeders right on the deck and Wood Pigeon perch in a nearby blossom tree
  • Amazing hiking around Shakespear regional park and your pick of beaches on either coast
  • Launch the boat at Army Bay, or the Kayaks at Okoromai Bay or Kite surfing at Te Haruhi Bay

The most amazing thing about this place is just how quiet it is! Yet movie theatres, cafes and local markets are only 5 - 15 minutes drive away. Shakespear regional park is a beautiful part of Auckland. A quick stroll down to Okoromai Bay can have you waddling for cockles in the sand, in preparation for the nights dinner. There's well over 2.5 hours of walks around the regional park, which has a massive pest-proof fence surrounding it's perimeter that has helped an abundance of native birds return to the area. It doesn't matter whether there's a strong southerly or northerly wind as 10 - 25 minutes can have you walking to either of two beautiful swimming beaches (Army and Te Haruhi Bays) on either the northern or southern side of the coast. Whangaparaoa's coastline is dotted with beautiful beaches, which you'll see on your drive out to Army Bay, so you'll never be short of options.

Kahlo retreat is a modern, architecturally designed home with indoor outdoor flow and amazing views from its upper levels. Chill-out on the North-Facing decks up top or soak in the spa and relax in the hammock down-stairs. Rooms are large and spacious and there's plenty of storage and space for a few families.

Fishing is great just out from Army Bay and the Sunday markets (albeit small) are a great little visit for a morning coffee, or a jump off the wharf for the more adventurous. There's also a world-class golf course! This really is a wonderful place to stay if you just want some quiet nights with you and those close to you to chill-out.

The neighbours just below the property volunteer and work for the local bird sanctuary at Tiritirii Matangi island (which you can catch a ferry to from Gulf Harbour), so if you give them a wave, you might be lucky enough to learn a bunch about the local bird and plant life.

If it does happen to rain, there's a huge selection of DVDs, Netflix, games and a competition grade ping pong table to keep the whole family entertained.

    Very spacious home with beautiful view and ambient surrounding would make this bach ideal for many in particular to family with kids. 5 minute walk to the bach for fishing and cockle hunting and every necessity is provided for in the house. Josh has been pleasure to deal with and we'd like to highly recommend the home for holiday retreat. Thank you.
