    The property is an old style bach which was what we were looking for. If you want a peaceful scenic remote location - this is the place to be. The sea is safe to swim in with no large waves. And the location isnt that far from Auckland CBD itself.

    Although property is old and basic it is comfortable, adequate and ideal for 2 families. Nice updated shower room. Lots of outdoor space for kids to play ( full section) in farm setting. Views and sandy shelly beach are stunning. Pleasant easy walking track to beach even for our 2 yr old. Kids loved the beach and nice to have plenty of trees for shade. Quiet spot with very few public visiting the area so had the beach to ourselves mostly.

    Other than the tranquil photos, the word that appealed to me was "affordable". This tidy, clean and cozy bach set on a farm was the perfect location for my family weekend away from the busyness of life. Thank you Greehock farm, we will be back.
