    Property description
    North Shore City
    Condo/Apartment – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    Close to the city but a million miles away!

    Backing on to Kauri Park (a forest) you can be at peace and be with nature.

    The apartment is in the downstairs (ground floor) part of the house with the host family living upstairs. So, you can have your own space or, if you like, you can socialise with us.

    Even though our place is somewhere to get away from the hustle-and-bustle it's still reasonably close to downtown Auckland and there are also some local conveniences nearby. The best of both worlds really!

    Guests have their own entrance and access to a kitchen with fridge/freezer, dual hot plates, electric frypan, convection microwave and dishwasher. There's even an espresso coffee machine, rice cooker, blender and fruit juicer!

    There are two large bedrooms, each with very comfort...

    How to get there
    Airport: Auckland International Airport: 31.0 km
    Railway: Britomart Transport Centre: 11.0 km
    Ferry: Birkenhead Ferry Terminal: 4.0 km

    Odds are we can pick you up form the airport (NZD 100). Otherwise there are many ways to get from Auckland airport to our place. Outside of rush-hour it's around 30 minutes from the airport. If you are in a small group then a standard taxi is around NZD 90. President taxis are good value as it's a door to door luxury car service for around NZD 80. You can book them online and they will meet you at arrivals.




    Avoid driving through Auckland during the rush-hours (roughly between 7-9am and 3-6pm weekdays).

    Whether you are heading north or south on SH1 take the Onewa Road off-ramp. Head up Onewa Road which changes it's name to Highbury Bypass, then...

As an expatriate kiwi absent from New Zealand for 30 years arriving in Auckland with my non Kiwi wife, this "nature retreat" was the best transition and acclimatisation we could have hoped for. The view of the Kauri forest from the porch and visits from the local birdlife, including an enchanting tui, was the perfect way to wake up each... more

We booked nature retreat after reading other reviews. What went wrong? The whole place was very dated. And we were led to believe it had just been done up. Our view initially consisted of two rotary lines full of washing, one outside the kitchen window and the other outside the patio window. The cooking rings were as described, a very... more

Good, convenient location if you drive. Easy to get on and off the major motorways. Wifi worked great. There's even Netflix! What you see in the photos is spot on. Unit was just the right size for us and very private. It was clean and comfortable. Nice that the living area opened onto a patio and the back garden which... more
