Why LynH6998 chose Waitakere
Alan and I bought our land in 1971, 10 acres of regenerating native bush. There was no road, electricity or water. We surveyed the road ourselves and 'pioneered' a lifestyle over a long period of time. We always had a telephone line and that was a bonus. We learned to be self sufficient, if the power went off, it was our own generator - either a mechanical fault or we had run out of diesel! We went on the Power Board's electricity supply in 1985 and the then Waitakere City Council took over the road maintenance and its extension. After our two children grew up and left home, we realised we could share our piece of paradise with others and so built a freestanding purpose built apartment as accommodation in 2009. We have welcomed many Bed and Breakfast Guests, both International and National, and we now favour a mixture of Guests and independent short to long term Tenants. We are always open to queries and take pleasure in personalising stays to suit you and us.
What makes this Bed And Breakfast unique
Be our ONLY Guests or Tenant on our 10 acres. We live here too, and are happy to engage as needed, but also happy to respect people's privacy and need for peace and tranquility. Explore our bush walk with some board walk, 3 bridges, stream and glow worms, (to visit at night). Enjoy magnificent views of bush and birds from the Unit and it's 2 external decks, soak in the hot spa under the stars.
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Absolutely fabulous hosts with a stunning little retreat away from everything. My wife and I loved our weekend here and are hoping to get back again. Great hospitality from Lyn and Alan with beautiful fresh homemade bread and fresh homemade juice and ingredients for a lovely cooked breakfast and happy to help with anything you may want to know about the area. Great privacy and a wonderful spa to relax in as the sun goes down and the stars shine surrounded by bush and the sound of birds. Highly recommend if you're after a private and peaceful getaway :) Thank you Lyn and Alan
Thank you for you kind comments. It was a pleasure to meet you both and thank you for being such great caring Guests. Look forward to seeing you again. Kind regards, Lyn

Tremendous place to stay; great Hosts, excellent Location - being right in the bush - so invigorating, peaceful.

Fine Hospitality & Gorgeous Views

Worth every penny
The most wonderful weekend getaway experience! Beautiful accommodation set in the most breathtaking scenery and looked after by really lovely hosts. Could not have asked for more. 10 stars!
Thanks for taking the time to review us. We know our humble BnB is a handy escape for folk who live in suburban settings with neighbours, and being only 45 mins from the CBD it's not too far to travel. Sorry you didn't have time to see the glow worms down the bush rack, maybe next time. There were 2 teeshirts left behind, now washed and waiting, should you want to pop in sometime.
The place was everything i expected and more.. the place is stunning ) the accomodation had everything required and very clean.
Thank you for taking the time to review us. I agree, it's almost a relief to arrive at an accommodation and find it is as advertised. We aim to please and are happy to personalise to meet the needs if possible. You were wonderful Guests with +++ for tidiness, (even removed the rubbish) and great communication. Exactly the best of Guests. Kind regards.
The Spa and Comfort
The property has all required. It is clean, cozy and comfortable. The hosts are helpful and accommodating. Take the walk on Bethels beach and have a drink in the spa pool - super relaxing. We had a great time.
Thank you taking the time to review us. Life is busy, we all understand that, but reviews do help other Guests too. regards, Lyn
