We welcome the opportunity to let others enjoy a relaxing affordable holiday at Greenock Farms - Awhitu in the 1950's house on top of the hill, with the fantastic views over the Manukau Harbour. The area is known for its privacy and seclusion for anyone that wants time out.

Remember the days of family time with sprat and flounder netting then on to looking for crabs under the rocks at low tide.

Carve your name into the cliff while your mates are having a swing on the old car tyre hanging from a tree.

Available for rent is the 1950's HOUSE at the top of the hill, with its fantastic views over 18 areas of farm land and the Manukau Harbour and only a 250mtr walk or drive to the beach.

While sitting on your deck you are able to watch the activity of the birds below on the sand bar and your family checking their flounder net or just being kids.

The TOP HOUSE tenants have access to the beach by vehicle or a 250m walk on a track.

There is plenty of room on the lawn at the beach, to park your vehicle, kayaks and fishing gear. Kayaks are available for hire, delivered and picked up.

It is a great spot for floundering - bring a flounder net if you want flounder for breakfast or a sprat net for the kids to play with.

The beach is a safe swimming beach for children and kayaking and also great for kayak fishing out in the Manukau Harbour.

Moor your boat in the shallow water or in the or deeper water on the other side of the sand bar.

You are only 6 km to the 9-hole golf course at the ARA Park on Brook Road.

Bristro meals are available on Friday nights at the Awhitu Golf Club from 5.30pm to 8pm.

You are 6km to the local store for supplies and petrol.

Kayaks are available for hire with paddles and life jackets, delivered and picked up for small fee. Contact Colin at SressFreeAdventures for kayak hire.

    The property is an old style bach which was what we were looking for. If you want a peaceful scenic remote location - this is the place to be. The sea is safe to swim in with no large waves. And the location isnt that far from Auckland CBD itself.

    Although property is old and basic it is comfortable, adequate and ideal for 2 families. Nice updated shower room. Lots of outdoor space for kids to play ( full section) in farm setting. Views and sandy shelly beach are stunning. Pleasant easy walking track to beach even for our 2 yr old. Kids loved the beach and nice to have plenty of trees for shade. Quiet spot with very few public visiting the area so had the beach to ourselves mostly.

    Other than the tranquil photos, the word that appealed to me was "affordable". This tidy, clean and cozy bach set on a farm was the perfect location for my family weekend away from the busyness of life. Thank you Greehock farm, we will be back.

  • Property is spacious, very clean, well located

    Property is spacious, very clean, well located. It rained almost the entire time I was there, but I was warm and comfortable and when there was a break in the weather, I popped down for a walk along the beach. Overall, a very relaxing stay for me (I was on my own) But there is loads of room for a large family and an outdoor bbq if the weather permits
