Apartment, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2)
Originally from South Africa, we have lived in NZ since 1999 and love our adopted country. We have 2 adult daughters, both married and one incredible baby grandson. We bought this property when our daughters left home. We live and work in Auckland and purchased this property as a place to escape, explore and relax. it has been a real blessing to us and we enjoy being able to share it with others.
Muirclan purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Muirclan chose Waiwera
We find being near water to be relaxing and the lovely water views made us fall in love with this apartment . Waiwera really appealed to us as it is such a small community and not commercialised. We are often the only people on the beach. The people in the community are friendly. We enjoy walking on the beach, kayaking, swimming and bush walks, all of these are easily available here. Having a thermal water pool and spa was a bonus.
What makes this Apartment unique
A front balcony with estuary and sea views and a cool shady back deck for relaxing on hot days. Thermal pool and spa within the complex.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Sweet little getaway
It's far away from Auckland enough to not feel like Auckland but close enough to not be a hassle. We wanted to stay longer because we were so happy relaxing in our little sweet nest. Would come back tomorrow! Has everything you could possibly need.
Waiwera is a lovely scenic spot
Very comfortable apartment, lovely view, beautiful artwork and excellent outdoor space. Really enjoyed our time here.
Lots of stairs but clean and tidy!
Quiet out of the way, easy walk to the beach, clean and tidy but lots of stairs!!
Fantastic Attic Apartment With Lovely Views
The apartment was tastefully decorated, clean and tidy. It had all the facilities to make our stay very enjoyable. The thermal swimming pool and hot tub were a bonus. Sitting on the small terrace with such lovely views was very relaxing.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for leaving the apartment so clean and tidy. Enjoy the rest of your holiday in New Zealand.
Beautiful and peaceful place!

S & J
Had a wonderful relaxing weekend.
The Attic is well equipped and very homely. Great views. Weather was good. Did a lot of walking and sightseeing. Thank you.
The Attic is walking distance to the sheltered Waiwera beach with calm water for swimming, kayaking etc. Waiwera beach is always very quiet and the endangered dotterels can be seen nesting there.
The Wenderholm Nature reserve is a pleasant walk away and filled with Native Birds. The historic Couldrey House is situated at Wenderholm and is well worth a visit. Orewa is a 5 minute drive away and is full of really good restaurants and a range of shopping options.
Heading North, there are lovely wine estates with fantastic restaurants and quaint areas to visit. Puhoi is an interesting community and the Cheese Factory is well worth a visit for lunch or an award winning ice-cream.
The Sculpture trail at Brick Bay is always changing and is a very pleasant hours walk.
Matakana has a great farmers market on a Saturday morning for lots of tasty treats. The movie theatre there is also worth a visit.
There is an excellent bus service from Waiwera to Orewa and to Auckland city. The pick up is directly opposite the apartment.
