This is a delightful 2 bedroom apartment with 1 bathroom, open plan kitchen/dining/living. Tiled floors for easy care stays at the beach. Completely refurbished and tastefully decorated with all linen and towels supplied. Fully equipped kitchen with stainless appliances. Covered patio for all weather enjoyment. A perfect place for you to escape to or experience a laid back holiday with your family and friends where shoes are optional and relaxation inevitable. Build sand castles, fly kites, swim, walk, explore the rock pools and just enjoy the simplicity of life at the beach. No sea view from the apartment but walk through "the breezeway" and, at high tide, the water laps at the edge of the lawn.

Arkles is a very popular, child friendly safe beach yet here you are tucked away from the crowds at the end of the bay in this little piece of "paradise". Just up the hill (a 2 minute drive or a 10 minute walk) is the Whangaparaoa Mall with supermarket, chemists, Banks, restaurants, cinemas and more. A pleasant walk around the lake to a children's playground and on to the sleepy Weiti Marina. Quaint Manly Village just a few minutes away by car and a little further on to Gulf Harbour Marina and Shakespear Park with its sheltered bays and fine walks across open farmland and bush. Pack a picnic and catch the ferry to Tiritiri Matangi from Gulf Harbour. "Tiri" is a world renowned open sanctuary.

Other day trips could include a trip to Waiwera Hot Pools and on to the historic Bohemian village of Puhoi and a visit to the Puhoi Cheese Factory. Further north to Warkworth, Matakana, Goat Island Marine Reserve and numerous vineyards.

  • The Bach was awesome

    The Bach was awesome. Cosy with quiet surroundings. Beach literally at your doorstep. Hills in the back sets the mood also. Great that the shopping center was close by. Quick shop and escape back to The Bach and the paradise of Arkles Bay.

  • The house is lovely and recently renovated

    The house is lovely and recently renovated. There is also a fully stocked kitchen with pots, pans, utensils, and even food Louise provided (fruit, milk, chocolate etc) which made our stay even better. The house is right next to the beach which is a beautiful spot.

    A neatly tucked away apartment near the shops and the beach (even though it was winter). Warm,cosy and Louise thanks a million for the bread,fruits and the open pantry.....everything was handled professionally. A revisit is a must.

  • Lovely wee batch presented in lovely condition just as the photos showed

    Lovely wee batch presented in lovely condition just as the photos showed. Perfect spot for a quiet getaway from city yet close enough to get to all places . Beach is only though a small entrance way and the kids and I spend hours playing in front of the batch . While it's a small unit it feels spacious -Highly recommend this spot if you want a quiet spot to get away - Louise sets it up very well and even left a few check in treats for us . Thanks for letting us experience the area
