The space

We live overlooking Arkles Bay on the Hibiscus Coast of Auckland and, having travelled extensively, enjoy having visitors from all over the world.

Your accommodation is a very private, self-contained flat with 2 bedrooms and a lounge/kitchenette with a double element bench top convection oven/microwave. Flat screen TV with Netflix

The main bedroom features sea and bush views from the kingsize bed. There is a futon sofa bed in the lounge and two single fold out beds in the second bedroom, which you walk through to access the bathroom, it is suitable for a family. The sleeping arrangements in the second bedroom are flexable. If requested, we can move the futon into the second bedroom to make a double bed. The beds in boxes would then become the divan in the lounge. (see photos)
All of our bed linen is 100% pure cotton and the duvets and pillows are feather. We also have a porta-cot.

The lounge opens out onto an extensive private deck with a BBQ, and the bush and sea views makes it the perfect place to relax. A few of our guests have been fortunate enough to see pods of dolphins which are regular visitors to our bay.

Free, fast WIFI internet with Netflix is available. Off Street parking.

The beach is located just a 2 minute walk away through the native bush garden. Arkles Bay is a safe swimming all tides beach and the local beaches are beautiful with golden sand. The beaches are calm and are great for swimming or just strolling or kayaking. We also have kayaks available for use.

We live upstairs so are here should you need any help.

We have a non shedding, very friendly dog that does not have access to the apartment.

There is a shopping mall and movie theatre within a 5 min walk, and public transport to the city is just 20 metres from the house.
Arrival and departure times are negotiable depending on other bookings.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
