Covid-19 notice: The Gables is open under Level 2.

Just 40 mins S. of Auckland, close to Hunua Falls, the beaches of Maraetai & Beachlands, & Miranda Hot Pools. The Gables is a tranquil cottage in a native bush setting on a 7 ha property, with its own private entrance. Many of our guests are international tourists just arrived in, or soon to leave, New Zealand. It is not available for short-term lease, but is a great get-away. There is no public transport, so your own car is essential.

The space
We are located 30 mins (off-peak) South of Auckland International airport, so make an ideal overnight stop for travellers needing a place to rest before driving further on, or for those returning to overseas destinations. It is a great couples retreat or a stop-over for parents with one or two children.

Guest access
The Gables is fully detached and self-catering, and while within 100m or so of the main house, it is situated so guests will enjoy total privacy.

Other things to note
Covid-19: MOH guidelines apply (including additional cleaning measures, social distancing and contact tracing). Check-in by host continues to apply.

There are 2 dogs, 4 cats and sometimes free range chickens. The dogs and cats live at the main house, but may come to visit.

Basic ingredients are provided for guests to prepare their own breakfast.
