Avoiding the city accommodation with it's ever present late night disturbances and confined spaces. Here is a brand new build of luxury in the country but just a snappy drive north of the harbour bridge. Nestled in Norfolk Downs Estate, this 5 acre north facing property is simply stunningly beautiful. Powered mainly by a powerful solar system and with its own water supply, you are mostly off the main electricity grid. Just 7 minutes away from a bustling new shopping complex at Silverdale and beautiful beaches a few minutes further on.

Wayne and his wife Willi Williams reside in the large main dwelling and are there to help with ensuring your stay is one to treasure above all others. This is extremely well insulated with solid wood walls and high quality double glazing. Each room has a ranch slider opening up to the panoramic views. Want fresh fruit? Just stroll around the grounds and help yourself. Note: we are importing some very special single beds when together make queen and a beautiful sofa to enhance our visitors comfort. These are not expected until early November so existing bedding and lounge chairs are in place until then. You can hit a few golf ball around the paddock, Kick a few rugby and soccer balls, read your holiday books in quiet, paint your passion, dine in splendor, wake to the birds and frogs nearby and accumulate many memories.

Special conditions: No pets. Guests by invitation only as this is a private road. Speed limit is 50 kmph so must be observed. Families welcome. There is parking space for trailer or additional vehicles.

  • Very new and tidy property with modern fit-out

    Very new and tidy property with modern fit-out. Was very quiet with the exception of a few early morning farm animal noises which was not a bad thing. Had an issue with water pressure on the final day but in no way does this detract from staying here again.

    Owner/manager responds:

    The water pressure issue was the pump tripping but a push of the button fixed that. Only happens very infrequently which is a built in mechanism to protect the pump if a surge occurs. A minor inconvenience for which we apologise for. The farm animals neighbouring make a few expected sounds when they wake and that is rural life.

  • Perfect! Amazing! I wish I could live there

    Perfect! Amazing! I wish I could live there... So calm and quiet even if it's so close to the biggest city in NZ. Very clean and organized as well. It has everything that we need for a perfect and relaxing staying! You will not regret to spend some time in this paradise... For sure we will be back! Soon!

  • Willi and Wayne's bach was amazing for our first Bookabach experience

    Willi and Wayne's bach was amazing for our first Bookabach experience. The bach looked to be recently built, with wood interior and well-supplied kitchen. Walking through the field and trees on the property and picking lemons right off the trees was a treat (and made for some tasty lemonade). Beautiful views of the pastures from the back deck.
