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.

    What a fantastic location and property would have liked to had more time there. Had everything we needed. Only suggestion would be a full length mirror in one of the rooms. Other than that we had a fantastic time .... thanks :-)

  • We enjoyed a very wonderful weekend staying at this bach

    We enjoyed a very wonderful weekend staying at this bach. It is such a peaceful area and the walks in the area are worth doing. I would also recommend everyone to visit the lighthouse. The owner has helpfully listed these things in a welcome pamphlet you see on arrival. The place is well maintained and is a lot bigger than I had originally thought it would be. The oven/stove is fantastic unlike most bachs and meant I could cook some lovely meals really fast. An absolutely wonderful stay.

    Loved the location ! Good views and lovely deck ! We did have a slight problem with the microwave as it stopped working when we first tried to use it but that's perhaps because of the appliances age. Otherwise a wicked weekend !
