  • Stunning beach and bush setting, just a short stroll to both the surf beach and Lake Wainamu.
  • Landscaped gardens and beautful decks with fabulous sea views.
  • Within driving distance of many walks, wineries, wave pools, and only 35mins from downtown Auckland.

A truly magical setting in the heart of Bethells Beach township just a stones throw from the surf club on the edge of the Waitakere Ranges.

Stroll from the surf club along the beach and take in the wonder of the wild west coast, the scenery is spectacular!

Your accomodation provides the gateway to any number of incredible bush and beach walks or simply stay home and soak up the ambience of your bach with its landscaped garden and native flora.

If you've got kids then they're going to love boogie boarding down the awesome sand dunes on the edge of Lake Wainamu, there is plenty of safe swimming there too. For the more adventurous take a walk around the lake then cool off in the waterfalls.

There's also rock fishing and the well known O' Neils surf beach within walking distance and a 10 minute drive will take you to the Waitakere golf club with its amazing bush backdrop.

Through the winter, take one of the many local walks and return home to hot chocolate and a warm fire. Or alternatively, head to Henderson (20 mins drive) where you will find wave pools, movies, shopping, Crystal Mountain (theme park for kids) and other activities.

During the summer months sample some renowned West Coast food and drink at the Bethells Cafe.

  • This property was a cosy, relaxed space us and our friends needed...

    This property was a cosy, relaxed space us and our friends needed for a few nights stay away from Auckland cityscapes. Being so close to the beach, and the lake, it was just perfect.

  • Gorgeous homely bach near the beach

    Gorgeous homely bach near the beach. We stayed and rested with the whole family and totally loved it. Although you are out of the city it is just a short drive to Swanston and then you can jump on the trains to get around to all the favourite locations without the need for driving on the Auckland Motorway! The house is full of fantastic board games and books for the rainy days or you can relax in the tub and look out at the beautiful serene private display garden. We will be going back!
