An easy one hour drive north of Auckland, brings you to Hennys Hideaway. Nestled in 1.5 acres of private bush, the only neighbors you can hear are the tuis. Here you enjoy spectacular north facing views spanning from the Sandspit wharf out to Kawau Island on the huge, very private deck.

A short walk through the bush takes you down to a secluded beach. From there, it is a short walk around the waterfront to either the Sandspit campground or beautiful Brick Bay for a swim. Feeling lazy or picnic too large? Drive down in 1 minute!

15 minutes by car to numerous attractions. Stunning Omaha Beach, Matakana Village with the Farmer's Market and cinemas, numerous wineries and Warkworth. A 20 minute drive brings you to Leigh, Goat Island Marine Sanctuary for snorkelling, wild Tawharanui Beach for surfing and dramatic Pakiri Beach with horse back riding. There are beautiful walks everywhere - either in the bush or by the sea.

Our beautiful, north facing home has just been renovated and includes a modern granite kitchen / family / dining with underfloor heated tiles throughout, wood burning stove in the formal lounge, and a spa pool. It also has a games room with a pool table and a loft above - perfect for the kids or teens to have their own hangout space. Large television with Sky TV and DVD. Wifi included.

We welcome you to self cater and use your own linens and towels and clean the house yourself on departure. Or, for an even more relaxing stay, allow us to provide these for you and let us do the cleaning at the end.

We welcome well behaved pets and charge only $20/pet/night plus the Cleaning Fee. Let your furry friend have a holiday with the family rather than staying in a kennel. Please note that our property is not fenced.

  • The location is paradise

    The location is paradise. A short walk down a bush track gets you to a stunning bay. Great bush walks accessed from property. No one around. Spa pool!! Incredible views from the deck, lounge and bedrooms. Enjoyed the pool table and kayaks. Close to cafes & wineries. Made for a special family holiday and we would love to go back.

    An awesome spot to spend a few days, a great house with everything you need, killer views, and very easy to communicate with the property manager if you need to. This was our 2nd visit to Hennys for a lads fishing weekend, and we will be back again in future no doubt. The only thing I would recommend changing is another 2 double beds upstairs instead of the singles & bunks, that would make it perfect for 2 or 3 couples.
