Seafront bach with splendid views across the Manakau harbour to Auckland City. This sunny four bedroom bach is ready for you to move in for a restful holiday.

Privacy and feeling of remoteness makes it hard to believe that central Auckland is just over an hour away. Sandy beaches are metres away with walks continuing around the coastline, through native bush, farmland and regional park, exposing more and more coastal views.

When the tide is in, it is ideal for water sports and fishing with the convenience of a jetty 400 metres down the road.

The nearest service station and dairy is a pleasant 5 minute drive away and if anything more is required the township of Waiuku is a further 20 minutes.

West Coast black sand beach and sand dunes only 10-15 minutes drive away.

This northfacing 1970’s bach is on a full section so it has plenty of room. It has open plan living with a sliding door opening onto a large sun drenched deck. It has beds for up to seven people with two large (kings and queen) and two single bedded bedrooms. The bathroom has a shower, toilet, handbasin and a laundry tub. There is a single garage with internal access.

Large backyard with lots of room to throw a ball, play cricket or petanque.

Long term rental available. Enquire for rates.

  • We really enjoyed our stay

    We really enjoyed our stay. The bach is comfortable, and had everything we needed for a quiet weekend away. It was really nice being a short stroll from the beach. The information and communication from the host was great. We had no problems! Thanks for hosting us.

    What a fab little batch, perfect for a family getaway and explore weekend . Clean and tidy inside and a lovely big lawn and deck outside. And what a wonderful setting - loved the view and peaceful surroundings. Minutes walk to two beaches and a great little jetty to fish from. Thank you, we really enjoyed out stay and wouldn't hesitate to come back and explore more of the Awhitu Peninsula from this classic kiwi batch!
