Situated approximately a 40 minute drive from the heart of downtown Auckland. This retreat nestles in the Makarau Valley surrounded by indigenous bush and luscious green pastures. Our place is good for a quiet and relaxing home away from home.
Due to our location we offer a continental breakfast and we are also happy to provide a cooked dinner to be eaten with us in the main dining room (by prior arrangement so we can cater accordingly).
Our 3-bedroomed home is a modernised 100-year old villa that also has a 2-bedroomed bungalow attached by means of a reading/library room. Each house has it's own bathroom/shower/toilet. The entire house shares the kitchen, pantry, laundry and bathroom areas. One bedroom has a King single bed with a study table. The second bedroom located in the main house has a king single. There are also bunk beds in the common space attached to the study which is great for kids. We also have a camp cot for an infant if required.
Zugang für Gäste
Guests are able to access all parts of the house expect for our own private bedrooms.
Interaktion mit Gästen
Some of us work full time and some part time, so there is always someone around with pockets of quiet. It's home away from home. We are a very social family and love meeting people. We are well travelled and have many stories to share along with good food.
Weitere wichtige Infos
We are located 5.3km's from SH16 of which the last 3 km's is on gravel road. The house is north facing. We look out to paddocks on the south side and a mountain and forestry to our north. We have a small stream that runs at the bottom of our garden that flows into the Makarau River. You can just sit on the deck or you can go for a small "adventure" to check out the stream and its small pools. We have free range chickens and one rooster who will delight you with their antics. We also have 2 dogs and 4 cats that are part of the family.
Respect us and our home. Relax and enjoy.

We are an open, honest and super friendly family. It's about constantly having a cheerful disposition. We live rural so no city lights anywhere to be seen. It is quiet and soul regenerate. I grow my own organic fruit and vegetables. I love my home and it is well lived in that I share with my husband, my parents, a son and some furry & feathered creatures (2 dogs, 4 cats, 4 hens and 1 Rhode Island Rooster who are free range). I enjoy sharing my home and good food with family, friends and strangers.
