  • Stunning close-up waterfront bush and sea views and native birdlife offer the ultimate serenity
  • Sunny architect-designed voluminous split-level bach with open-plan living oozes style and character
  • The location feels remote yet is just 5 mins drive to the best beaches, vineyards, cafes and ferries

Within 5 minutes drive from arrival on Waiheke, your ultimate Bach 52 chill-out experience awaits. This cleverly designed, stylish space is discretely located at the end of an elevated bush-clad peninsular running alongside Anzac Bay, with accommodation and decking laid out to maximise sun, privacy and the dramatic grandstand native bush and bay's-edge views below. A private bush track leading from the house takes you to a little-known, safe, all-tide swimming beach.

The tranquil waterfront location and outlook to the Te Whau headland across the bay feels remote, yet is so central to the island's very best beaches, vineyards and cafes, as well as car and foot passenger ferries. It's a surprisingly short stroll to the shops and cafes of Ostend village, where you'll find the famous weekend markets. From here you could explore the white sands of Palm Beach - just 2-3 minutes by car. A 5-6 minute drive will have you at Oneroa village and beach, or in the other direction at Onetangi for more great beachfront cafes. Ostend is the hub of the island's bus service and you'll find a stop to take you almost anywhere, just at the end of the street.

This striking one bedroom house has undergone meticulous renovation in recent years, including a custom-built Smeg kitchen and new bathroom and toilet. Large windows throughout frame magical views - you feel as though you're hanging over the water. Bi-folding and French doors seamlessly connect all living spaces with decks which enjoy all day sun. The bedroom, also with dramatic bush and sea views, is spacious and fresh and the enormous Pohutukawa picture window gives the feeling of a tree house - just stunning when in red Christmas bloom.

B52 is the ultimate place and couple's space, to escape, chill, dream, unwind, disconnect from the rat-race and reconnect with your own pace. So easy to find, so hard to leave - unforgettable nature, seascape and landscape...

  • Loved the location

    Loved the location . Awesome views. Very clean and tidy. Just one tiny complaint... the duvet cover had some dirt marks /stains. The kitchen was well equipped.

  • Just gorgeous

    Just gorgeous. Very clean, smart modern style and well equipped - with a delightful water outlook - very Swallows and Amazons! When booking, I thought it might feel a bit 'out of town' -- but wineries, shops, coffee, sushi(!) all very handy. The location itself is extremely peaceful - artfully set within lovely old trees (lots of native bird-life) on a no-through road, so no passing traffic. We were very cosy despite the chilly autumn nights. Not fully fenced for dog - but we improvised!
