Indoor fireplaceThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

Our home's called “Tui’s Rest” after we sat on our sunny deck, while Tuis landed on the trees nearby.
Plenty of space with lovely views.
Fast wifi, large TVs & DVD upstairs and down.
The bedrooms all have top quality beds and linens and blinds as well as curtains.
For food-lovers, our kitchen is well equipped, also a gas BBQ.
There are plenty of restaurants and take-outs locally.
Three minutes’ drive to Waiake beach, five to Browns Bay, or ten to Long Bay Regional Park.
Enjoy it - we do!

We really loved Tui’s Rest. The home is beautiful and serene. We wanted to stay in everyday because it was so relaxing and quiet. It’s well kept with lots of tips in binders. John and Claire were easy to communicate with through Airbnb. If we ever visit again we will stay here.
