We welcome the opportunity to let others enjoy a relaxing affordable holiday at Greenock Farms - Awhitu in the 1950's house on top of the hill, with the fantastic views over the Manukau Harbour. The area is known for its privacy and seclusion for anyone that wants time out.

Remember the days of family time with sprat and flounder netting then on to looking for crabs under the rocks at low tide.

Carve your name into the cliff while your mates are having a swing on the old car tyre hanging from a tree.

Available for rent is the 1950's HOUSE at the top of the hill, with its fantastic views over 18 areas of farm land and the Manukau Harbour and only a 250mtr walk or drive to the beach.

While sitting on your deck you are able to watch the activity of the birds below on the sand bar and your family checking their flounder net or just being kids.

The TOP HOUSE tenants have access to the beach by vehicle or a 250m walk on a track.

There is plenty of room on the lawn at the beach, to park your vehicle, kayaks and fishing gear. Kayaks are available for hire, delivered and picked up.

It is a great spot for floundering - bring a flounder net if you want flounder for breakfast or a sprat net for the kids to play with.

The beach is a safe swimming beach for children and kayaking and also great for kayak fishing out in the Manukau Harbour.

Moor your boat in the shallow water or in the or deeper water on the other side of the sand bar.

You are only 6 km to the 9-hole golf course at the ARA Park on Brook Road.

Bristro meals are available on Friday nights at the Awhitu Golf Club from 5.30pm to 8pm.

You are 6km to the local store for supplies and petrol.

Kayaks are available for hire with paddles and life jackets, delivered and picked up for small fee. Contact Colin at SressFreeAdventures for kayak hire.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our two days at this spot

    We thoroughly enjoyed our two days at this spot. The house was beautifully situated overlooking the inner harbour below and afforded very pleasant views of same. The sheltered front porch was an ideal position to do this from while we ate our evening meal. The house was an easy 200 m stroll from the beach and sand spit below. It contained very well resourced kitchen facilities and the bathroom had an excellent shower. The section was contained and would be very child-friendly. This was a very quiet and tranquil setting. Thanks for the great hospitality and support. Looking forward to the next stay.
