About Robyn Pearce
This property is my home, but I don't need all the space, so delight in sharing the beautiful serene location with visitors. I travel quite a bit as a business educator and professional speaker, and am also a writer of both business books and historical fiction.. I have a bunch of other interests such as sailing and learning French.
Robyn Pearce purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Robyn Pearce chose Clarks Beach
This area is very special to me. Ancestors on both sides of my family were early settlers in Pukekohe, Tuakau and the Awhitu Peninsula. Many of my holidays as a child were at Grahams Beach, down the Peninsula, so when the chance to buy land almost on the Manukau Harbour came up, it was an easy decision. The house has been purpose-built for easy beach-side living. I can't imagine living anywhere else!
What makes this Apartment unique
Beat the traffic - be at the beach in under an hour from Auckland's CBD (outside of peak hours!)
Max guests: 3 (sleeps up to 3 adults)
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
Wished I could have stayed longer!
I chose this property for my final days' stay after a month long first road trip through New Zealand. After having stayed I cannot imagine a better place for the trip's ending.
The host Robyn lives on site but your space feels very private. Her hospitality and thoughtfulness were exceptional.
I tend to prefer to mix in a fair amount of cooking and dining in when traveling. While there is not a full kitchen, it's set up well so that I had everything I required.
Robyn provides a nice selection of cereal, bread, jam, teas, etc.
The feel of staying here is as though you're almost at the end of the world, no cares, no worries!
Direct views from the living area and bedroom are peaceful, spectacular and ever changing. Tide comes in and then recedes daily, revealing the intertidal flats where local birds like the oyster catchers forage. Amazing Sunsets.
There are great places to explore by car from here and the Auckland International airport is an easy drive, perhaps 35 minutes.
Next time I return to New Zealand I'll plan to stay a bit longer.
Thank you Robyn!
A lovely place to stay for a quiet relaxing holiday.
Excellent on all counts
Robyn was the perfect host in every way. The location surpassed what we had imagined.
