Rustic 2 Bedroom home nestled in the Bethells area.

Stunning views of Bethells Beach and the Sand Dunes that lead to the beautiful Lake Waimanu. Relax and unwind in this Bach surrounded by natural beauty and birdsong. In the day hear the birdsong of the Tui and in the evening listen out for the unmistakable call of the Ruru (Morepork) Owl.

This beautiful bach is perfect for a family vacation or a romatic getaway. Only a short stroll down to Lake Wainamu for a walk and a swim in the cool lake. Or a quick 2 minute drive to the beach for a walk along Bethells beach or a surf over the hill at the well know O'Neils surf beach. There are bush walks in the area and in the summer there is the Bethells Café which offer food and beverages, on Fridays nights they have musicians come to entertain the locals and visitors.

A beautiful location for a winter escape, rug up and explore the beach and then come home and relax in front of a roaring fire.

A 10 minute drive will take you back to the Waitakere Golf club and more beautiful bush walks.

Please be advised there is no cell phone coverage and no wi-fi at the bach. Only nature at it's very best.

    Great spot with views of the dunes and the ocean. Plenty of firewood and nice to switch off from the internet for the weekend!
