À propos de ce logement
Lovely self contained studio on the ground level of our house with 2 door private access off the driveway and carport. Cockle Bay beach is a 200 metre pleasant stroll away and the beautiful Mangemangeroa Reserve walk nearby.
This is a modern bed/sitting room with a separate kitchenette, shower and toilet. There is a new comfortable Queen bed and sofa bed. Other bedding and mattress available upon request.
The sheltered tidal bay is within a 200 metre walk and a conservation walkway is nearby. The shops/cafes etc at Howick village is a 5 minute drive or about a 20 minute walk. A car would provide easier access to nearby Howick village and Botany town centre which is a 10 minute drive. However there is a bus service across the road. Howick village has many bars, cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and a Saturday farmers market.and Botany town centre has every shop that you could want!
Cockle Bay is 20K southeast of Auckland city and accessible by car or bus which would take between 40 to 60 minutes depending on traffic. The bus stop to take you into the city centre is just across the road.
There are also many other places of interest nearby. We have Whitford countryside bordering us to the east and beaches beyond and Howick beach and the Buckland Beach peninsular very close by. There is also a ferry service from Half moon bay into Auckland city and the fabulous Waiheke Island.
We can negotiate longer stays which may suit holiday makers or new immigrants wanting to become familiar with the area.

Cockle Bay is a quiet established coastal residential area away from the hustle and bustle of city life. It is undulating and pretty with tree lined streets. The beaches and coastal walks, cafes, bars and shops nearby provide everything you could want to enjoy your stay.
Except for an upward sloping driveway we are on sea level with sloping roads either side...great for those who love a good walk. The beach is easy access for those who like to walk on the flat and the bus stop is across the road.
For those on route to other places in the North Island we are very close to the country coastal route south and about 20 minutes by car to the motorway north and south.
The small kitchenette has a sink, microwave oven, fridge, portable double hotplate cooker jug and toaster. We will provide coffee, tea, sugar and essentials for cooking.
