Rustic 2 Bedroom home nestled in the Bethells area.

Stunning views of Bethells Beach and the Sand Dunes that lead to the beautiful Lake Wainamu. Relax and unwind in this Bach surrounded by natural beauty and birdsong. In the day hear the birdsong of the Tui and in the evening listen out for the unmistakable call of the Ruru (Morepork) Owl.

This beautiful bach is perfect for a family vacation or a romatic getaway. Only a short stroll down to Lake Wainamu for a walk and a swim in the cool lake. Or a quick 2 minute drive to the beach for a walk along Bethells beach or a surf over the hill at the well know O'Neils surf beach. There is a coastal and lake walk in the area.

In the summer there is the Bethells Cafe which offer food and beverages, on Fridays nights they have musicians come to entertain the locals and visitors.

A beautiful location for a winter escape, rug up and explore the beach and then come home and relax in front of a roaring fire.

A 10 minute drive will take you back to the Waitakere Golf club and more beautiful bush walks.

You have the luxury of privacy of a whole house, offering value for money and accommodating up to 8 people.

Please be advised there is no cell phone coverage and no wi-fi at the bach. Only nature at it's very best.

  • Perfect for us

    Perfect for us. Cosy, creative, wood paneled and well positioned to take in the view of the sea rolling in and the dunes to the south. No Ruru were heard or seen, but a couple of Kereru spent time feeding on Nikau berries and cavorting around in the trees nearby. A comfy main bed with a window to the sea was a nice feature too. Highly recommended.
