Exclusive access to a spacious Queen room & private lounge in a quiet rural home, minutes from Hunua Village. Lovely big garden setting with views of the Ranges. Private entrance. Guest-only bathroom. Private living room: WIFI, continental breakfast (muesli, yogurt, cereals and bread provided), tea & coffee, fridge, toaster & microwave included. Located on the door-step of the mighty Hunua Ranges, 45 mins from Auckland Airport. No extra cleaning fee. We look forward to welcoming you.

The space
The private lounge looks out on the very pretty garden - curl up in the afternoon sun on the window seat, take a stroll out onto the deck & explore the garden & hedge maze. On a clear night, the stars are amazing, and it is very quiet here - only the sound of nature, but yet so close to the city. You'll have a great night's sleep, and be rested and ready for the next day's adventures.

Guest access
The bedroom, lounge and bathroom are in a separate part of the house - you won't be disturbed, but we are in the home if you need anything. Situated in a 15 acre farmlet, our garden is a semi-formal layout with over 40 roses, a sunken garden, vine covered bowers and a swing seat overlooking our established lifestyle block. Unique to the property is our hedge maze! But don't worry - not large enough to get lost in! Say hello to our pet Highland cows, and enjoy the antics of our flock of free-ranging hens as they go about their busy days. A basket of dry wood should you wish to sit out on the deck overlooking the ranges beside a chiminea fire is available for a small fee on request - so relaxing and perfect on a starry evening!

Other things to note

Location

Hunua, Auckland, New Zealand

Hunua Village is a 5 minute drive for essential items and a licensed cafe. The little gas station has a great range of snacks, icecream and baked goods - they also make a terrific coffee. Central Auckland or the airport are only 45 minutes away (off-peak). We are a ten minute drive from the Hunua Ranges Regional Park with an easily accessed big waterfall and fabulous walking and biking tracks. We are a great base for visiting both coasts of New Zealand. A half hour drive east puts you on the Firth of Thames and the acclaimed Seabird Coast and Miranda Hot Springs. The same distance west and you can experience the wild black sand beaches of New Zealand's world famous West Coast.
Also only short drives away are Bracu Restaurant for fine dining or John Hill Estate winery. The well appointed townships of Pukekohe or Papakura/Takanini are within easy reach (15 minutes). The wonderful foodie's market at Clevedon on a Sunday is a must do!
