  • Anna and Brian are the most hospitable and friendly hosts one could possibly imagine. We had a great time in their property, which is in an excellent location to hang out for an extended period because it is convenient to many things - parks, interesting towns, Auckland and shopping. The photos do not do justice to the appeal of the location, which is high on a ridge with lovely views. We would definitely return and recommend this to our friends. Thank you again Anna and Brian!

  • The space was bright and light filled by day, and private and subdued ( after the curtains were drawn) for a wonderful sleep at night. Joy provided items for breakfast, and enough for a light supper on arrival, that were very generous and welcoming. Her tips about the area were very helpful. Her hospitality was outstanding. Highly recommended!

    Judith2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant location for a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of Auckland. Space was much bigger than expected! Minutes walk from a beach, less than 10 mins to the marina at gulf harbour and handy to drive to other beaches in the area. Joy was a pleasure to deal with. The breakfast items were a thoughtful touch, as were the home grown tomatoes- thanks so much. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a quiet place to get away from city life!

    Our house is close to several great beaches, excellent outdoor & indoor activities, restaurants, cafes, shops and amenities. You’ll love our place as it is a new house in great condition and kept immaculate. Most suited are solo and business travellers however a couple may also choose to stay as the second single bed pulls out from the main single bed (forming a temporary double).
    Enjoy a bbq on our outdoor deck with picturesque views over Millwater.

The space was nice and clean, the family was incredibly welcoming, and since I stayed for a few weeks being located near a shopping center with shops, cafes, and a grocery store was ideal. The time I spent here was great and I would definitely recommend to others!

On arrival Ginny bought us some fresh milk and was really friendly then she left us to our stay. Very private and you feel away from everything so it was the perfect trip for us. The pool area is amazing, we were gutted the weather was overcast so we couldn't enjoy it but we still sat around it for a while. The Hot tub is a gorgeous place to chill out and unwind!! This is an astonishing air bnb...don't miss out!!

Go here; when you are Lucky enough that you can book it

It is obvious that our hosts aim to please with beautiful little details...... loved the homemade jam. Walking distance to the iconic Puhoi pub and village and a wonderful comfortable king bed. We highly rate this property.

    We welcome you to share our home, only an hour's drive from Auckland Airport and Whangarei. Our warm, single level home, is in a quiet location overlooking park and river. Peace and privacy, but only a short, 10 minute stroll into Warkworth township through the riverside park, and a 10 minute drive to Matakana.
    Our house is suitable for those with limited mobility as, apart from a small front step, property is on a single level. Our shared bathroom has a stepless shower, and toilet handrail. There is also a seperate, second toilet. Guest room features a flexible slat queen size bed, with high-count cotton sheets. The bed is also fitted with an electric blanket. We additionally offer an Ikea single foldout bed, in a second room, for an extra person. We would also like to invite well socialised fur babies to stay, by arrangement. Our backyard is fully fenced, as we have 2 schnauzer/Jack Russell x dOgs, a large, slightly demented, Birman cat, and a fantail pigeon. There is a medium size crate available for use. NOTE: We have beehives on our property. Whilst the girls are normally placid, they can sting. Just to clarify, you will be sharing our home with us, and our fur babies. We are NOT a hotel, but we do offer you a comfortable homestay - just like visiting your favourite aunt. We live near bush, so there are bugs. Good news. They won't kill you. I do keep my house clean, but not to a 5 * hotel standard -I have better things to do. So, if you enjoy good company, and a friendly place to stay, with super friendly dogs, we look forward to your company, and will probably invite you to share a meal with us.
    Warkworth Township is less than an hour's drive from Auckland. Several bus companies also service the town on their way north and south. We are blessed to be a gentle 10 minutes stroll into the town, where you can enjoy a riverside walk, village shops, and great cafes. Don't miss Chocolate Brown for homemade chocolates and fudge, and excellent coffee, or dining at the Wharf St Bistro - both within an easy walk. The wonderful Matakana Village is a mere 10 minutes drive, with it's famous Saturday market. Beaches, parks, vineyards, and fantastic outdoor activities all lie within a 30 minute radius. A great local bus service connects Warkworth with Matakana & Omaha, and Snells Beach and Algies Bay. This service also connects to Auckland, via the Silverdale Bus Hub. We may also be able to provide an airport transfer service (additional cost). Please contact us for details.

    Our house is rustic, set on 3.3ha- approx 2ha in native bush. We live on a gravel road so alot of dust. Flax, tui, rural views. Your own pathway to a deck and your own private bedroom. ONLY ONE TOILET/ BATHROOOM in house. FOOD NOT PROVIDED. You're welcome to cook. There is space in fridge. We have two lively dogs - Whiskey is a year and 70 cm tall. Tui, 18 mnths - a cat, 2 goats, a horse, a pony and 8 hens. You MUST love animals. NB: WE NO LONGER ACCEPT MALES TRAVELLING ALONE.
    Our open plan living/dining and kitchen area is approx 7 x 8 m2. Glass doors open onto lovely big deck area adjacent to trees. 15mins from Orewa or Silverdale. 40 mins from Wellsford. Plenty of scope to discover Rodney area and easy to head north
    Rural yet only 15mins from motorway and Silverdale or Orewa. Quarry 500m away and therefore trucks to-ing and fro-ing on occasion.
  • Loved staying at Kirsten's place. The house is remote on a hilltop. We were warmly welcomed by a wonderful family, two dogs, a goat, chickenand horses. Bed is super comfy and the shower has indeed a beautiful view. We had lovely conversations, got great tipps and would totally come again.

    Carina2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • A glowing report, so friendly but I believe if privacy was what you wanted they would anticipate this and oblige. The bed and pillows were super luxury to a level of comfort never felt before. Thoroughly recommend the home of Kirsten, Laurie and their 2 dogs who loved both me and my man.

    Margaret2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The house is secluded, in a beautiful setting. Chickens, two goats, two horses, two dogs and one cat are walking around the house. We received a warm welcome and were given tips for places of interest on our route. The guest room is neat and has its own entrance.

    Esther2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Kirsten's place is located in a quiet area in the middle of nature. You can enjoy farm life and native forest. The family is friendly. I spent a nice time at the farm.

    Daniel2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Kaukapakapa, Auckland, New Zealand

    Kereru Studio is a comfortable space for a couple or person wishing to 'escape' for a period of tranquillity. The tidal Te Kapa inlet is at the bottom of the lawn directly in front of the studio for swimming or kayaking. Guests are welcome to use the outdoor spa and kayaks. There is a veranda and outdoor courtyard beside the studio exclusively for guest use. Off street parking is available and our living area is off limits. Because we live on the site there is every chance we will be present when guests are staying. Interaction would be limited to anything we can do to ensure our guests stay meets their expectations. Mahurangi East is a peninsular which leads down to Scott's Landing. It has a lot of walks, lovely views, bush areas and native birds. In the area there are regional parks, ocean beaches, cafes, vineyards and restaurants. About 20 minutes drive away is the popular Matakana village with markets and cinemas. You are spoilt for choice in the region depending on what sort of break you want to have. You would need to have your own transport to enjoy your stay. Off street parking is available. We will provide travel directions and a list of local attractions which may interest you. For tranquillity we do not have a television in the studio but wifi access is available. The kitchenette has a microwave, toaster and tea/coffee making. All linen is supplied there is no cleaning fee.
  • Heather and Allan are such hospitable hosts. The studio is a little slice of paradise - we loved taking the kayaks out and going for swims! We had the best little getaway in our two nights here and would definitely book again.

    Sheena2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Very relaxing location, exactly as described in the advert. Hosts were very helpful but also left me to myself so felt very private. Would definitely recommend for a single traveller or couple looking to explore the area.

    Felicity2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying here, it was peaceful and relaxing. We took cayaks out on the water and had a great time exploring some wonderful bays and beaches. We would recommend this place to anyone seeking a quiet and comfortable getaway.

    A smart studio with a fabulous sea view looking out over Kawau Bay towards Kawau Island. Perfect for a couple and within easy reach of all the Snells Beach amenities including the shops and cafes. The beach itself is only a gentle 5 minute stroll away. An ideal location to simply relax or explore New Zealand north of Auckland.
    The studio has a great view of Kawau Bay, that you even get from the comfort of your bed.
  • Sparkling clean & a great view. Lovely size kitchen if you’re wanting to prepare meals

    Warkworth, Auckland, New Zealand

    Modern and tastefully decorated in a secluded back garden with plenty of native birds and just a short stroll to the picturesque village of Warkworth. So much to see and do in this part of New Zealand. Vineyards, cheese and honey factories, sculpture trails, the famous Matakana farmers markets, snorkeling at goat Island, taking a ferry to beautiful Kauwa island, bus tours to explore further afield to the far north, and just 40 minutes to Auckland. A light breakfast is available.
    Totally private space with own entrance and parking
    Quiet street off the beaten track but close to the village, tourist attractions and beautiful beaches.
  • Helene’s is spacious, bright and lovely with many nice elegant touches to make it lovely.

    Bernadette2020-03-19T00:00:00Z

  • We had the most wonderful stay - Helene's maison is clean, tidy and filled with so many thoughtful touches. We stopped over for the evening before doing a day trip to Kawau Island - was perfect. The variety of the breakfast included was more than we expected with fresh fruit, yogurt, bread, cereal and jams with teas, coffee and even freshly baked biscuits, not to mention the most amazing cupcakes!! Bed was comfy and shower was great. I would thoroughly recommend - Helene and her partner are super friendly too!

    This upstairs room has a nice Futon bed and WIFI. The house has a rural setting, in Puhoi, near State Highway 1, just North of Auckland. The house sits in a big, park-like, garden and views onto the bush with the Te Araoha track from north to south NZ. We offer at the moment free broadbeans and tangelos from our garden and the chickens are laying every day free eggs for you. You can use the communal bathroom and modern kitchen. See you soon! Jan and Marleen
    You can enjoy the views from the decks to bush or garden, listen to the tuis and owls or look at the stars and the milkeyway.
    Our house is within close walking distance (800 metrs) from Puhoi historical village
  • If I could move in with Jan and Marleen I'd be the happiest person in New Zealand.

    Matěj2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Jan and Marleen had to welcome us late that day but still took their time to make us feel comfortable. We very much enjoyed the chats we had and wished we could have talked more. Both are are very knowledgeable and kind. The room and the facilities are very good and the garden is a beauty too. Thanks and all the best!

    Richard2020-02-28T00:00:00Z

  • Such a wonderful stay! Our hosts were such a lovely, generous couple. We felt so welcome and at home. The house is very clean and nicely decorated. We were even given some eggs and bananas from their chickens and banana trees! Extra special touch. A lot of places to relax and read your book, whether that’s in the garden or on the deck area. Would love to stay again.

    Pear Tree Farm is a delightful retreat in Puhoi. Guests stay in an area of our house that is private and accessible by its own entry. The bedroom and private bathroom are for exclusive use of guests with tea and coffee making facilities in the shared laundry space. There is a selection of self serve cereals for breakfast and a microwave but no other cooking facilities are available. The shared laundry space is where hosts sometimes cross the hallway to access the garage.
    The bedroom is spacious and has a ranchslider onto the patio where there is a quiet place to sit. It has a table for dining or working and a TV with Free-To-Air TV and free Netflix. Both rooms have double glazing. The large private bathroom has both shower and a spa bath so bring some bubbles! Our property is 8 acres at the top of a hill, on a private no exit road. It is very peaceful and quiet with views across bush and farmland to the sea. During your stay, you'll see chickens, sheep, and horses. No doubt one or both of the farm cats will introduce themselves to you and you may even meet our newest addition, Gertie the pig, who loves a cuddle.
    A short drive to some lovely local attractions - the Puhoi Pub, the Puhoi Cheese Factory, Puhoi River Canoe Hire and beautiful scenic beaches and bush walks. Local beaches are less than a 10 minute drive. Easy access to Matakana and its Farmers Market and wineries. A great place to stay when you are travelling north of Auckland city or if you are wanting to stay in Puhoi for the weekend.
  • Amazing place - perfect!

    Jim & Patsy2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful position with just the most lovely helpful host. We came in very early morning and Ian met us at the gate to let us in. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean Our Host even went to the trouble of putting down the block out blinds so we could sleep later. It was a delight to wake up and see the resident pig and cat outside our window. The view of horses and open paddocks was just lovely. We would recommend Pear Tree Farm to any weary traveler as a great place to stay.

    Claire2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

    Sy (Geneviieve)2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning rural setting and distant sea view 'hosting' a virtual menagerie of farm animals - horses, chickens, cats, and a pig called Gertie.... Fruit, cereals, and a selection of tea, coffee and hot chocolate are available for breakfast. Well appointed and spacious bedroom and bathroom. Definitely recommend to those wanting a 'peaceful break away'.

    You deserve time out to rest, relax and breathe fresh air in a beautiful place. Just a few steps from the sea, at high tide you can hear the waves lapping. Listen to the birds; play tennis or pétanque; go for a walk; kayak or swim. Baddeleys Beach is ten minutes from Tawharanui Regional Park with its pristine surf beach, wild life and walks and ten minutes in the other direction to Matakana with its restaurants, breweries, art galleries, sculpture park, shops, theatres and weekend market.
    The guest wing of the house includes a stylish bedroom with a queen size bed, bedside tables, writing desk and breakfast cabinet with a fridge, kettle, toaster and microwave. There is a separate toilet and the en suite has a shower, fluffy towels and robes for your use during your stay. The lounge/tv/dining room has a beautiful view over the bay, a smart tv, Netflix and access to 2 decks, one of which has an outdoor table and chairs and barbecue.
    Baddeleys Beach is a very small, quiet beach at the end of a short sealed road and most of the properties are holiday homes so outside holiday periods it is especially peaceful. There is a large reserve with 2 tennis courts, a petanque court, toilets, picnic tables, a children's playground, and a boat ramp. The beach is tidal with scenery changing by the minute and a multitude of bird life. Swimming is best one hour either side of high tide. There are several deeper water beaches close by.
  • Janet is a great host. She has a good knowledge of the local area and can advise you of places to see, things to do and places to eat etc. The accommodation is super stylish and spotlessly clean. It is in a great location to explore the Matakana area. Janet provides a fabulous assortment of breakfast goodies. A wonderful place to stay to explore or relax and unwind!

    Dianne2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Janet was very gracious and the suite was very comfortable. Location was good - close enough and central to easily drive in to do some things but far enough away from the busy town to give the feeling of real 'holiday'. Amenities were great.

    Nadja2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • A truly wonderful location to unwind, great accommodation, and Janet was very helpful. She suggested a night walk to spot Kiwi, and we were not disappointed. Just book it, you'll be pleased you did.

Even from your bed you can watch the ocean! A nice breakfast is prepared in the fridge and Janet is the hospitality in person! She gives wonderful recommendations and also provides a fantastic guide booklet she made herself with the best tips for the area. She knows it very good! We also loved to use her Kajaks in the bay and the sunshelter and towels for the beach! And not to forget her lovely dog Teddy which is the cutes teddy bear you can imagine! He is very well educated and loves to get cuddles. We highly recommend staying with Janet. It is such a great holiday experience!! Thank you Janet!

    Maja2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Pamela made us feel so welcome, as if we were guests she had been looking forward to and not part of a financial transaction. We hadn't expected to arrive so late but she took all the embarrassment out of it. We really enjoyed chatting with her and her friend Tony, getting some local knowledge too, and having the big space available in the fridge was SUCH a help. Will definitely contact Pamela again if we have a chance to stay in that area. As an ex-dog owner, I can't believe how her house is SO spotless despite having poodle Charlie's happy presence. She does an amazing job of creating a caring, welcoming environment and atmosphere. Go and stay with Pamela, you'll feel right at home and won't regret your choice.

    Rankin2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

  • Wow! What an amazing host Jenny is. She gave me a really nice warm welcome and gave me a tour of her apartment. It was super clean! The bedroom where I stayed was as clean as any 5 star hotel! The water pressure of the shower was amazing and the bathroom was clean as whistle! We had some great conversations and Jenny also provided a huge continental breakfast, which went beyond my expectations. I have stayed at many Airbnbs and Jenny's place was the best value for money. She made me feel comfortable and I even booked again for a whole week next month that's how much I liked it! Ps: sorry for accidently setting off fire alarm from the steam from shower!

    James2018-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Jenny’s place was a little difficult to find as new development, not on my ancient sat nav. Otherwise, the place was lovely, new and spotlessly clean, comfortable and cosy. Jenny is a warm and friendly host and she made me feel at home straight away. Nice bedroom (although could do with a table!) and lovely shower room on the landing. Jenny supplied towels, shower gel, cups of hot tea and light breakfast, plus a friendly chat. Would recommend.

    Maike2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the warm welcome from our hosts, the big sparkling clean swimming pool, rural views, top quality accommodation including comfortable beds and lounge, big kitchen and bathroom, quality linen and towels, generous tasty breakfast provisions including fresh eggs. Easy quick drive to Warkworth and lots of interesting sights and places to visit in the general area. Fabulous stay. Perfect.

    Sue2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Totara Bend. This place really did exceed our expectations. Definitely one of the best Air Bnb places we have stayed at. The service we received was outstanding!! Warm and friendly hospitality, Graham and Roma really know how to make you feel as if your part of the family. Beautiful spacious abode very clean and tidy with all the essentials. Property set up on huge 16 acres back drop , great panoramic views of mountains and NZ farm lands, Totara Bend has heaps of little pockets of treasures waiting to be discovered and If you love a little outdoor adventure this place will not disappoint. One of our highlights for sure was being able to view the night sky from the deck,seeing the stars blanket the mountains was so surreal and something you must do if you visit. This property is a short distance to all ammenities and stunning beaches. Totara Bend has so many hidden gems, would highly recommend this place to anyone that is wanting a little getaway. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Thanks again Graham and Roma. We appreciate you both. Hoping to come back in the near future.

    Jan2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a great place to stay! Lots of space, well-equipped kitchen, BBQ worked well, lovely bedroom, bed, patio and view. Graham and Roma were wonderful hosts. Enjoyed chatting with them and learning about their property as well as feeding the eels.

    Nancy2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • A Perfect Little Hideaway, The space was clean, bright, and comfortable. A very well set out kitchen area and large walk in shower. Perfectly situated in the rolling hills, with pine trees, but only 8mins away from Warkworth township. Really enjoyed meeting Drama, the bulldog, who revels in making new friends and is a very affectionate host but completely respects guest privacy and areas. Graham and Roma are also fantastic hosts, friendly, great conversationalists, and make everything available to guests; including the pool and vegetable garden. We stayed here for proximity to Matakana and Goat Island, straight from Auckland Airport, and it was the perfect place to relax and unwind, as well as provide access to nearby locations. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay north of Auckland.

    Daniel2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Graham & Roma's farmstay is outstanding, and so is their hospitality. The setting is beautiful and it's ideal for children 3 and up (with swimming pool, playhouse, swing, bushwalk, etc) and perfectly set up for couples as well (the accommodation is well appointed/new and the beds are super-comfy). And with doves in the trees, 'friendly' eels in the pond and the occasional friendly horse wandering through, it's a lovely place just to hang out. It's also a mere 8 minutes to Warkworth and another 10 minutes to Matakana, so it feels much more remote than it is. Our family adored it.

    Gary2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Such a beautiful rural setting, Graham and Roma are excellent hosts and make you feel really welcome. Really enjoyed our stay, especially the wonderful swimming pool and views!

    Kaipara Flats, Auckland, New Zealand

    Opahi Bay, Mahurangi West has to be one of Auckland’s best-kept secrets. Getting to this charming cottage is a 50-minute drive from the CBD, along the Northern Motorway. Stay at the cottage, wake up to the birds, enjoy the beautiful garden surrounds and step out onto the beach to relax, swim, walk or play in the beautiful, sheltered bay. The cottage’s proximity to nearby Puhoi, Matakana and Warkworth allows you to make your stay as adventurous or relaxing as you’d like.
    A great 'glamping' retreat for two people or a small family. There are two bedrooms, and one bathroom which is off the main bedroom. Please note that there is no lounge. In the main bedroom, you’ll find one queen-sized bed and, in the second bedroom, a queen-sized bed and king-single bunks. The cottage is equipped with a fridge, and tea and coffee making facilities. There is an area to prepare a continental breakfast. A barbeque is available for use on the verandah.
    Opahi Bay is a jewel on the coast. There are many opportunities for swimming, fishing, kayaking and sailing. A walk around the rocks or a 5-minute drive will bring you to the pohutukawa lined beaches of Mita Bay, Mahurangi West Regional Park and beautiful Te Muri beach - location of several New Zealand movies.
  • Julie was a terrific host. Easy booking, great communication and a lovely stay. Thank you.

    Fiona2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely little spot in a quiet little bay in Mahurangi West. Great location with access to a number of other beautiful bays and Puhoi, Warkworth and Mahurangi East all within close driving distance. A lovely place to enjoy the summer days.

    Julie2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • A stone’s throw from the beach at Opahi Bay, a lovely seaside community with a safe swimming beach for children, we had a very comfortable stay here. The whole place was very tidy, with comfy beds, and a great shower. No kitchen, but this didn’t bother us as we ate elsewhere. There is a kettle, fridge and bbq though, enough for simple meals. We appreciated the wifi as cellphone reception is limited in the area. Julie was a responsive and friendly host.

    Escape to the country, total privacy, peace, tranquility within easy driving distance to Warkworth township. Fancy the sound of Moreporks calling at night, wood pigeons flying by, fantails flitting around you and tuis feeding on the flax and kowhai? Romantic bath house - light the candles and gas fire at night. Gorgeous barn with chandeliers and log burner. Quality king size bed. Great cooking facilities.
    The Country Escape is unique because it provides full use of a large and beautifully converted barn next to very mature native trees, completely secluded only 45 minutes drive (if no traffic) from Auckland harbor bridge. Native birds frequently visit, a cheeky fantail sometimes comes inside. Tuis squabble in the flax flowers, and native wood pigeons fly overhead to the puriri trees.
    Country Retreat is located 5 minutes from Kaipara Flats, a pretty historic village with a church, school, cricket grounds, sports club and historic butchery (display only) http://www.kaiparaflats.co.nz/ It is located between the Kaipara and Matakana coasts. The nearest supermarkets are in Warkworth 11 minutes drive, Countdown open 7am - 10pm, New World opens 7am to 9pm Shell, Mobil and BP service stations are open 24 hours

    Ivan2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • I just loved my time at my country retreat... It's off the beaten track (but only 15minutes from Warkworth), and the seclusion and quiet were ideal for anyone wanting to get away from it all. The bed was comfy, the outdoor bath and shower was delightful, and there were lots of thoughtful little touches (fresh eggs) and tea light candles. I'd go back anytime. Remember, this is a rustic barn conversion so if the odd little country visitor (like a mouse or a weta) is going to ruin your day, it's not for you. It was certainly perfect for me - thank you Tania!

    Gillian2020-03-04T00:00:00Z

    Benni2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and extremely good value with easy communication. Just a short walk to a great and safe beach. Quite a lot of noise from first floor apartment but that was expected after reading previous reviews.

    Adam2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The flat has everything needed for a great stay. Well equipped kitchen and modern throughout. The bedroom is oversized, we were able to fit our daughters cot in the room comfortably. The bed was very comfortable. The only downside is the noise from the upstairs unit, footsteps and talking is easily heard. Waiwera beach was very quite, most days having the whole beach to ourselves which was awesome! The water is very safe, flat no waves so great for little ones and only 2 mins walk from the flat. Communication with the owners was very fast, no problems there. Overall I think this is really great value for money, I hope we can come back for another trip soon. 😊

    Karen2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • A very quiet location and so close to the beach. The unit was very clean and comfortable a great getaway spot.

    Tina2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • We spent an incredible few months at Shanon's place and it has been one of the highlights of our time in New Zealand. Waiwera is stunning, the beach is amazing and about a three minute walk away from the home. Wenderholm Regional Park is a 10 minute walk away and has some beautiful trails with easy and moderate hikes. If you stay here I'd recommend getting up early to enjoy the unreal sunrises at the beach and checking out the Sunday market in Orewa. There are frequent buses between Waiwera and Orewa (larger town with grocery stores, cheap 10 minute ride away). The home has fast wifi and nice amenities, Shanon was fast to respond to any messages we sent, good communication. This place is perfect, we're missing it already!

    Katie2019-09-22T00:00:00Z

Relax in a stylish modern bungalow and in summer enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast on the cantilevered deck while admiring the beautiful views. In winter the wood-burning fireplace makes this the perfect retreat for cosy weekends whatever the weather.
    The cottage is recently built to a very high standard with good internet and mobile phone coverage. There is a TV and blue ray player, a barbecue area and kitchen with dishwasher, pyrolytic oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge-freezer and Nespresso coffee machine. It is fully double glazed and has a wood burning stove. There are insect screens at some windows with sun blinds and black out blinds as well as curtains. A washing machine and tumble dryer are located in the bathroom for guest use. The bedroom has a king size bed and built in wardrobe. Bed linen and towels are provided.
    This is a beautiful rural location but is only approximately an hour north of Auckland and the airport. Close to the pretty village of Puhoi, one of only two historic villages in New Zealand, this area has many wineries, Regional Parks and beaches. The black sand beaches of the west coast are also less than an hour's drive, while to the north is Matakana with its many attractions and activities. There's lots to explore nearby or just relax and enjoy the view.
  • Wow, this place is simply stunning! We chose it to complete our NZ tour as it is only an hour away from Auckland airport. It has the most spectacular view of any property we have ever stayed in and with a double aspect view from our bed it was heaven to wake up to. From our balcony we could see the lights of the city and even as far as the Coromandel peninsula as well as a view into the valley that has been reclaimed by our hosts into original bush to encourage birds to visit. Susan provided a very generous delicious breakfast and a cheese platter for when we arrived as well as a glass of wine to welcome us which was very much appreciated. The apartment is completely separate from the main house and very private. It has been decorated with great thought and style with lovely bedding, towels and beautiful kitchen equipment. The bathroom is gorgeous and luxurious with great products provided. We were only 5 mins drive down the hill to Puhoi which is an historic settler village that has remained largely intact. There is a small village store for most basics and a larger supermarket 20 mins drive away. We loved our stay here and would recommend it for anyone who wants peace and quiet with great views to relax and unwind. We hope to return someday if we ever visit Auckland again.

  • The best place to relex after a long flight, it is a wonderful place to be!!

    Tamara2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place and perfect spot for a nice getaway. Couldn’t fault the stay at all. Susan was very welcoming and helpful and made our stay that much better! Would definitely stay again and would recommend this place to anyone.

  • Susan is a brilliant host and her place is amazing. We landed in Auckland and drove straight to hers. We love the finishes of her guest cottage inside and out. The view out is beautiful and quite other worldly. We look forward to the opportunity to stay at hers again on any future visit to New Zealand.

  • This is a beautiful cottage. It is situated in the grounds of the owners' main property and it has fantastic views to the south east towards the Coromandel Peninsula and all the coast in between. It is even possible to pick out the Auckland Sky Tower. The cottage has a wonderful balcony from which to soak in the view - we had dinner and breakfast on the balcony. The cottage is very well equipped and beautifully decorated. The curtains in particular add to the character of the place. The bathroom is excellent, especially the walk-in shower. The huge bed is very comfortable.

  • Susan's apartment is a wonderful place to stay while in the area. We have stayed at well over 30 Airbnb locations in a dozen countries and Susan's is among the very best. The privacy of the location, the beautiful views, and the comfortable living quarters made our stay memorable from the moment we walked, and we were continually finding thoughtful touches throughout. We would gladly have stayed longer.

  • Best Airbnb ever. Usually when planning a trip, you choose a location you want to visit, and you find an accommodation there. For Susan’s place, I highly recommend the opposite. You book her place, and then you explore the area around. I have stayed in more than 100 Airbnb’s and this is by far the best ever. The pricing is not cheap but trust me, it’s worth the value of what you are getting. The views are priceless, the finishing and quality of the house is immaculate and off the highest quality. You get better amenities than a 5 star hotel. Loccitane toiletries, Sheridan towels, Super high quality mattress. Branded washer, dryer, oven, microwave, tv etc... every detail has been carefully curated to ensure your holiday of the highest level. A welcome platter that includes croissants, cheese platter, ice cream, butter, bread, jam, milk, cold pressed orange juice, eggs, yoghurt, Lindt chocolates, cereals, chips. To TOP it off, susan was very friendly, pro active and made many recommendations for things to do. Highly recommended for couples who need that romantic quality getaway without bursting the Budget on a 5 star hotel suite

  • Not enough kind things to say about this gorgeous cottage. All 5 star reviews are accurate and could not ask for more helpful hosts. An Oasis less than an hour outside Auckland. Would highly recommend Susan’s Cottage.

    Casa Pequena is your escape pod from the cabin fever of COVID19 lock-down. Brand new and barely used before Level 4 came into effect, Casa Pequena allows you to self-isolate from the trials of life in your own private north facing garden the day after lock down is lifted. You'll have beach access, bike trails and whatever amenties are open, all within minutes walk from Casa Pequena. Public transport is close by and you're half an hour easy drive north of Auckland to the lovely Hibiscus Coast.
    Designed from the ground up to fit dimensions unique to this garden setting, Casa Pequena has features you won't find in your average hotel room. There is a mezzanine bed where the sound of distant waves can be heard coming through the same window that lets in the first rays of sunrise. You have a north facing, private slice of garden all to yourself to enjoy the Autumn outdoors. There is a special type of composting toilet which has minimal impact on the outside environment. While the inbuilt fan ensures there is minimum impact on your environment too. Natural curves in the interior decor mimic the waves of the beach, giving an intimate, yet uncluttered feel inside with an identity all of its own. You'll feel yourself transported elsewhere here. Leaving behind your other world in no time at all.
    Orewa is a town growing in style and diversity as its coastal location near a large city is further appreciated. Yet at the same time it feels spacious and uncongested by the hustle and bustle city life.

    Te Rakau is uniquely positioned on a private point overlooking Hatfields Beach and Whangaparaoa Harbour. The Lodge room is detached from the main house and is the upstairs unit of 2. It offers a private, tranquil retreat and has its own entrance and parking. It has a separate bedroom, bathroom, and lounge, with a Sofa bed for extra guests. With Hatfields Beach, Orewa and Wenderholm Regional Park on your doorstep it makes for a great location. The airport is within an hour's drive.
    The place offers a secluded private beach area and a view of the horse paddock, subject to feeding season.
    Very remote neighbourhood
  • A lovely secluded, quiet and comfortable location with breathtaking views. Thank you Linda

    Sharon2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • One of those rare little pieces of Heaven stuck on earth, where time stands still and one looses themselves in serenity.

    Remy2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place has a view to die for, absolutely stunning! The bedroom is all glass walls on the seaward side, so you can see it from the bed, or the chèz long if you prefer. Kung Fu is just adorable, so friendly and came right in to say hello and hang with us, very sweet.

    David2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible location! Amazing views, private beach, and proximity to Auckland and airport!

    Rob2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. Beautiful location, spacious and well appointed accommodations, friendly hosts and an awesome dog. Loved our short stay and highly recommend this unique location. The owners have really spent the time and effort to create a special experience. One note, you will either need a car or to arrange for transport services. There are transportation services in Orewa that can be scheduled (we got around fine using Comfort Airport Shuttle).

    David2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous stay. The view and private beach definitely a wow factor..beautiful memories thank you

    Tom2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding location and the absolute epitome of serenity and tranquility. Alastair and Linda are unbelievably good hosts and were extremely helpful when we had an issue with flight disruptions. We thoroughly recommend! Gareth & Vanessa

  • Photos and description don’t do this place justice. The view, the fresh air, the private beach!!! All make it an absolute dream. People should know there is another apartment directly below but it made no difference to our stay. Also, there is a lovely small town close by and a fantastic national park just around the corner. Good internet and tv too!
