Holidays as they're meant to be...

Our holiday home sleeps six. It has comfy sofas and outdoor living that was built for relaxing. There is a log burner fireplace, aspa pool, a DVD library and a well stocked bookcase. The house has a HRV home ventilation system installed. Bach Number Twelve is a great spot for you to relax with your family and friends, no matter what the weather is.

Walk down to the beautiful bay for all tide swimming, or up to the General Store for the morning paper. The region offers wonderful coastline, wineries and eateries. Lonely Planet’s latest edition of the NZ travel guide says "Leigh – applauded for its picturesque harbour dotted with fishing boats and a decent swimming beach at Matheson Bay."

Approximately 1 hour's drive north of the Auckland Harbour Bridge and 90min/100kms from Auckland Airport.

All pillows, duvets, blankets and even hot water bottles are here. Just bring your sheets, towels and tea-towels. On request, we can also supply quality cotton bed linen and bath towels for a small fee. Just bring your beach and spa towels.

For young children, a highchair, a portacot, change mat and mountain buggy are available on inquiry. The deck is gated for children's safety.

A dinghy is available to use, which is kept down at the bay. (There are four life-jackets: two adult, one child medium and one child small.)

Special conditions:

We now have a compulsory cleaning fee ($75) added to the rental.

Bring sheets, towels and tea-towels. These can be provided if you'd prefer - request on booking.

    We booked this accommodation for some of our employees who were needing to stay overnight while completing work in the area. The owners were very accommodating when I realised I had forgotten to ask for sheets and towels to be provided. At the last minute, it was all organised. The boy's feedback was that the property was great and they enjoyed their stay. Highly recommended.

  • We loved staying at this holiday home

    We loved staying at this holiday home. Is a nice, tidy and practical place. Very comfortable and lovely to be able to have our dogs with us. We would most definitely stay again. Owners were very easy to deal with and accommodating also. Thank you!
