Overlooking west coast. Extremely private, quiet and idyllic. Watch surf break from bed deck or spa. Rustic. Flush toilet & hot shower in small rooms adjoining the studio. Practically off grid. Surrounded by native trees. Bush walks, beach, lake nearby. A real favourite with honeymooners, babymooners and people wanting to get away from it all.
Self contained studio overlooking west coast. Extremely private, quiet and idyllic. Lie in bed and watch the surf break. Deck and BBQ. Hot tub with a view. This place is rustic. Flush toilet and hot shower but in small rooms beside the studio. Practically off the grid. A real getaway. Limited cell phone coverage and no TV, just DVD's, books and the sound of birds. 40 minutes drive from central Auckland. Fantastic views. Beautiful grounds full of natives. 3 minute drive to beach. Close to many excellent walking tracks. Track to the Lake is 5 minutes walk away.
Classic west coast New Zealand. The stunning Bethells lake is safe swimming and gets lovely and warm in the summer. Great walks in the bush beach sand dunes. You are also right on the Hiliary trail one of the most beautiful walks in New Zealand.
  • We stayed here after our Wedding and it was amazingly peaceful, beautiful and quiet. The hot tub is dreamy and the view is to die for. Thank you Anna.

  • The best place we've ever stayed. Such a beautiful cabin with the best view. Would recommend everyone to book 2 or 3 nights or a week. Or longer!! You don't even have to leave the house to have a perfect holiday.

    Isabelle Renate2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The location or view from the house (and even from the bed!) Is just fantastic and we had a great stay.

    Verena2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved staying in Bethells Beach! The cabin was a short drive away from the beach, and the views from the cabin are outstanding. For us, the hot tub really made this spot perfect. And the cabin felt so private and secluded which was great! Highly recommend!

    Lindsey2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place off the beaten path for a get away. Be sure to check out the nearby lake and go shopping before you get here!

    Galen2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • What a place! We had such a great time here! Anna‘s place has a stunning view and a lot of beautiful little details. We did a beautiful walk to the lake as Anna had recommended to us. And at night: you sit in the hot tub and look at the stars - perfect!

    Phillip2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • The photos don’t do this place justice, far better than we expected. We brought a lot of food with us and we had plenty to keep us busy in the area. We are definitely coming back next year. Watching the stars from the hot tub will be a fond memory for us. Thank you Anna, for being such a wonderful host.

  • If you are looking for simplicity, good bed, lovely outdoor bath, shower & toilet overlooking trees & beautiful melodies of the Tui birds ( best wall paper ever.) This is the place. Antje has the necessities covered as well.

    Esther2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful property in an ideal location. Would definitely recommend!

    Devon2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my 21 yr old son had the best time just sitting around the fire relaxing drinking beers and wine. Beautiful waking up with the birds noise in the background. Close the the surf beach and amazing sunset: )

    Teinakore2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a delightful 2 days staying at Antje's Hut. Lots of thoughtful touches and everything has been provided to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. Would love to stay again and would highly recommend to others.

    Sandra2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely location, like a dream!

    Ryan2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous hut! Loved being surrounded by trees and listening to birds singing. Very stylish space and clean! Quick responses from Antje as well! Highly recommend

    Irene2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Slice of bach / tiny house heaven in the woods, just wish we could have stayed for longer. Charming and cosy, the whole place was on point. Perfect for a couples romantic get away or a solo city escape.

    Alex2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I had a great stay at the misty mountain hut, it was secluded, surrounded by luscious green trees. The hut itself was a cool place to stay for two nights- stylish with everything you need amenity wise. The only issue for us was my wife being 6 month pregnant at the time, the outdoor toilet wasn’t ideal as she was up multiple times a night to use it! Whilst we were there we couldn’t use the fireplace due to restrictions because of weather, or the bath due to water restrictions. Antje was very honest about these issues and compensated us for the inconvenience! We had a lovey stay all in all!

    Piha, Auckland, New Zealand

    Nestled in the foothills of the Waitakere Ranges (Oratia), discover the perfect Kiwi retreat. Private and roomy, this 2 storey cottage has modern facilities, native NZ trees at your doorstep, and is close to west coast beaches, Piha and Karekare.
    Set amongst bird filled native bush (Kauris, Rimus, Totara and Kanuka to name a few). Your self contained cottage has modern amenities yet still retains the rustic character of the Kauri cottage, with a Kiwiana feel. Outdoor spaces available to soak up the atmosphere. We live on the property and are your neighbours but will respect your privacy.
    We are on a 2.5 acre native bush section with no visable neighbours. Very quiet and peaceful yet 30mins drive to the CBD and 20mins drive to the beautiful westcoast beaches (Piha, Anawhata and Karekare)
  • Such a serene spot in the middle of the ranges. Had a great quiet weekend away from the bustling city

    Grace2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Friendly hosts. Lovely private place.

    Larry2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • The lodge is ideally located just 30 mins from Auckland airport but out of the way so we had time to recover from our flight in a beautiful setting. It's only 20/30 minutes from picturesque locations such as Kare Kare falls, Kite Kite falls and Piha beach all of which we loved! Elke was extremely helpful from the offset and any queries we had she responded to quickly. We would definitely recommend staying here!

    Shirley2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and serene - wished we were staying longer. The whole place is very tidy and homely, and the surrounding bush is very immersive.

    Brett2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully set amongst majestic Kauri trees, the self contained accommodation is charming and rustic. There is a well appointed kitchen, a large sparkling clean bathroom and a very comfortable bed in the upstairs spacious loft bedroom. The stairs up to the bedroom are steep, so anyone with mobility issues should take this into consideration, but we wished we had booked this cottage for longer to enjoy the ambiance and peace and quiet of Elke’s retreat.

    Fay2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the cute, cozy cottage amidst beautiful trees and landscapes. Such a peaceful retreat! Elke added extra hospitality with fruit, biscuits, and extra blankets. We really enjoyed our stay!

  • This property does not disappoint! Even better than the pictures. Eva was responsive, house was spectacular and Piha was breathtaking.

    Christine2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful property with amazing views across the ocean, very peaceful and good place to watch the sun go down, a lovely place to stay while in Piha. The hot tub was a bonus after a busy day. The walk into Piha is all downhill and the climb up is quite steep we enjoyed the exercise some might find this difficult. The Cafe at the bottom serves really fresh food .

    Debbie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 10 nights in this phantastic house and its beautyful surroundings and it could have been 10 nights more. There are so many things you can do, go to the phantastic beach, do stunning coastal walks or through the beautiful native forest or just enjoy a bath in the hot tube after doing that. The views from the deck are stunning at any time. We had a wunderful time!

    Gabriele2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing spot gorgeous better than the photos - just go!

    Sarah2020-02-27T00:00:00Z

    Maureen2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Eva’s home is absolutely stunning. Set on the hill looking down to Piha it feels very private set amongst the trees. The house itself was wonderful to stay in and included everything we needed for the few days we stayed. This is definitely a place I would stay again on future trips.

    Alycia2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • The house is a juwel with astonishing views over the bay at Piha. We enjoyed the stay very much, especially due to its luxurious style and the complete infrastructure. Highly recommended!

  • What a beautiful place with gorgeous view and stylish and cozy. We really enjoyed our stay and Aramis is a wonderful host and responded promptly to our communications. He also adjusted our rate back to a standard rate because an event that had been scheduled and was cancelled due to the C virus. Love the design and the little touches, especially the way the outdoors are integrated with the indoors which created a relaxing atmosphere... And great shower. :) Thanks, Kia Ora!! Julie and Steve

    Rousseau2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The hut is fantastic, exceeded all our expectations! The views are amazing, the outdoor space is so wonderful. The bathroom was sparkling clean. The hut is super close to the cafe and store, the beach and several hikes. Aramis is the nicest guy you’ll ever meet. Would recommend 100%.

    Gabor2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely magical wee place. The location is perfect. The views are stunning. I look forward to returning sometime soon!

  • Wow, just wow. Super easy instructions to follow, fantastic location with a view to match and a surprisingly large space for such a tiny home. Definitely would go back!

    Harrison2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Breathtaking views. The location is pretty far from any stores so make sure you grab everything you need before you head up. There is a smaller store for misc items which was nice. There is no air conditioning in the tiny house, which seems pretty common in New Zealand. We had a perfect weekend for weather, but something to keep in mind. The location is one of the best spots in that area. Very beautiful place!

    Tasha2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning views are so calming inspiring and restful all rolled into one. Perfect retreat for a few days away, lots of bush walks nearby and of course magnificent beach. WiFi was good, shower was good, kitchen well stocked with utensils, parking was easy, the eco toilet was quaint and amazingly non smelly lol. Gorgeous loft bed, loved the deck and being up on the hill. A gem of a place and speedy responses from Susannah when I booked and arrived same day were so very appreciated.

    Jane2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

    Kaleigh2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Simply stunning view. One of which you feel a part of rather than an observer. Whatever the weather. It's just wild, powerful and very special.

    James2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • WOW.. what a spot! My partner and I were blown away by the location, just sitting on the deck having a coffee and looking out to the ocean. The tiny home is clean, has all you need and makes you relax. We really felt at ease whilst there, and made you switch off. Can't wait to visit again one day!

    A hidden gem situated in the Waitakere Ranges, Karekare has left many astonished by its natural structures and the peaceful charm that comes along with it.
    Nestled in the Karekare Valley. Modern, comfortable, self contained. Flat section on Karekare Road. Short stroll (400 meters flat) to the beach or waterfall. The Karekare stream runs through the back of the section. Back unit. I can accommodate a mix of couples and singles. Karekare is a surf beach. It is patrolled at key times during the summer. Equipped with heat pump so perfect for that winter getaway or cool in summer.
    Karekare is situated on Aucklands west coast in the Waitakere ranges. You will be staying in a coastal village a short distance from the beach.
  • Great place just a short walk away from the stunning Karekare Beach

    Anne2020-03-11T00:00:00Z

    Lutz2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Karekare and it’s nature Are awesome as well as the nice almost new bungalow. There is everything you need and maybe more, good equipment. Garth is a really good host, you will feel very welcome. One of our best sunsets at karekare beach. The only thing which not perfect is the internet speed for uploading movies in the cloud and some mosquitos at night.

    Philipp2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great value ! Clean place with awesome views and a beach minutes away.

    Jeff2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • After the long travel from germany i stayed in this nice cabin for 2 nights. Everthing was good. The cabin can easily host 3 or 4 people. Its so close to one of the best beaches i have ever been. Way better than Piha Beach if you like having the whole beach on your own. Its just a 5 Minute Walk. Well worth it!

    Andreas2020-02-22T00:00:00Z

  • Great spot, amazing views,super clean. Tasmin was very helpful telling us about local high lights. The beach is amazing, kite kite waterfall, and lunch at the cafe. Buy groceries before you arrive to Piha... no local marketing really available. Such a great place so close to Auckland.

  • It was my first time in Piha, and Tamsin's place was perfect. The location was beautiful and the cottage was super cosy. Only a short drive to Piha Beach and surrounding places to explore. Thank you! :)

    Sweet bohemian style cottage set in a lovely lush garden full of fruit trees native trees flowers & vegetables. Japanese style bridge across fresh water stream leads to the front door. In summer swim at the beach (10min walk) waterfall pools or just relax beside the stream. For cold winter nights there is a wood stove. Head over the hill to Piha & the Piha Cafe for free wifi Piha Store for essentials West Coast Gallery for art crafts & gifts. This a quiet peaceful retreat- please no parties!
    There are 2 double beds & 2 divans so the total number of guests I will accept is 6. This house is an open plan design with the kitchen, dining room & living room on one level. With verandahs leading off from the dining room & the lower bedroom the verandahs then lead onto the large sunny garden . Upstairs is a large bedroom with a huge view of the garden with large sliding windows. Separate toilet, shower & bath. A beautiful fresh water stream dissects the property. The Regional park backs onto the property so generally all you hear are the birds & the stream bubbling away.
    Karekare is a small coastal village surrounded by the Waitakere Regional Park. The beach is a wild surf beach with black volcanic sand. There is a surf patrol in the summer months but not in winter. There are numerous bush & beach & waterfall walks in the Waitakere Ranges. Waitakere Ranges Regional Parkland covers more than 16,000 hectares of native forest and coastline. The park includes 250km of walking and tramping tracks, beaches, breathtaking vistas, spectacular rocky outcrops, waterfalls and cliffs.
  • A beautiful sparkling clean home on a magical property with beautiful gardens and a stream. Be sure to feed the eel. Helga will supply the food for him. The house does not have AC or fans and can get rather warm during the day but opening the windows will create a breeze. However, they cannot be left open at night with the lights on or the insects including mosquitoes will invade. There is a wood burning stove that we do not need but would have been delightful. Be very careful on Karekare Road leading into the property as it is very narrow with many blind switchbacks. It is a very quiet and peaceful property a short walk from Karekare Beach and a short drive to Piha where there is a cafe and small store and beautiful shoreline. It is a 30-40 minute drive into the Auckland center. Thank you Helga for helping us get our New Zealand adventure off to a great start.

    Al2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Karekare Stream Cottage is a magical place. The lovely garden is full of native wildlife — wood pigeons, fantails, magpies, and even some pukekos, as well a small stream. Majestic Karekare beach is a five minute walk away. Helga is a gracious, knowledgeable, and communicative host.

    Guy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Helga is very welcome and kind person. She provided us with purified water. Cottage is very lovely and has everything you might need. It is covered from the rest of the world by trees, so you can totally relax there. I would recommend this cottage. The only one thing that I did not like, it is road to Karekare. As for me, it is a little bit dangerous, very narrow, especially when you don't know what crazy person will be driving from the other side, so if you feel yourself not confident while driving, do not go there. Great stay, thank you!

    Mariia2020-01-25T00:00:00Z

    Trent2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • A subtropical idyll and quality property. Helga's house is well built, thoughtfully constructed and extremely comfortable. We loved the decor and amenities. I'd happily stay here summer or winter. As well, the house is surrounded by a heavenly garden bordered by a stream, and dotted with fruit trees, numerous flowers and herbs. The birds love it too. Their chirruping was the only noise we heard while we were there.

    Yvonne2020-01-16T00:00:00Z

    Kate2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Helga’s property is extraordinary. The home is filled with light, the design of the interior spaces are thoughtful and beautiful, and the gardens are a fairy tale. The location is top notch (if you can convince yourself to leave the gorgeous home during the day) - it’s only a short walk from Karekare Beach and a short drive from Piha Beach. There’s also a fireplace in the living room which makes the whole memory of the stay even lovelier. Thank you so much for an amazing stay, Helga!

  • Tui was a great host , very helpful and the best part of the property was the amazing view. Good location.

    Brad2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful way to enjoy the pride of Aucklands West Coast, Piha. A great outlook view, brilliant location with Mercer Loop track just down the road and situated between Kerekere and Piha surf beaches. Tui is a great host and the cottage has awesome character and charm.

    Tim2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Tui's place. Stunning spot and view. Hard to leave that deck and outlook. Hope to return again .

    Ayako2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Tui is a super friendly host. His cottage in Piha has loads of personality and an amazing view! Main bedroom is comfortable and kitchen is well stocked, a Nespresso, and other cooking supplies. But remember to bring food with you—the local shops are pretty expensive ! Really enjoyed our stay here.

    Mirani2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Tui's place is the typical kiwi bach/crib and has stunning views up the coast. The King size bed is super comfortable and the kitchen has most amenities. i would only heed a slight word of caution to be on realistic terms for overseas travellers - this being a typical kiwi bach, the level of finishings are not so refined. Absolutely fine for the average kiwi but thought it merited a bit of clarity for overseas travellers who often expect a certain level. Tui is a great host and a super communicator, offering advice on local activities (walks, surf and beach activities). A really great spot to unwind completely!

    Isabelle2020-01-09T00:00:00Z

    Piha, Auckland, New Zealand

    Come to Karekare Eco Retreat and feel tranquility wash over you. Nestled a short walk away from one of the world's best beaches and only 45 mins drive from Auckland City, you will be immersed in lush native bush and birdsong. Large sun-drenched windows look out from the living area over a peaceful, forested valley. Enjoy a wine on the deck or in the outdoor bath surrounded by towering Kauri & Rimu trees. Close to Piha, and walking distance to unbeatable trails, streams, waterfalls, & sunsets.
    I try to run the house as environmentally as possible. The house runs off a rain water tank system, so water conservation is necessary, especially during summer. The house uses a composting toilet, which is both more eco-friendly and less smelly than a normal loo. But if you'd like to have a view while you poo there's a longdrop too! Cooking basics such as oil, salt and pepper will be provided, along with a delicious selection of coffee pods. If there is food left over from a guest feel free to use it, and pay it forward to the next guests! The top terrace of the veggie garden boasts an outdoor bath that provides one of the most relaxing experiences you could possibly imagine. Even better, the water drains out into an irrigation system for the veggie garden. If there are any veggies that look particularly juicy please feel free to chomp away! There is also an outdoor shower tucked underneath the house for if you need a quick rinse off after the beach. Karekare is close to the heart of Auckland city, yet it feels like you're a million miles away as soon as you duck off Piha Road and wind down towards the beach. Karekare was voted No. 2 in a list of the best beaches in the world by Passport magazine. “Few stretches of sand have more personality than Karekare. Wild and gorgeously undeveloped, this famous beach has been the setting for on-screen moments from Oscar winner The Piano to Xena: Warrior Princess.” (Lonely Planet) Almost all houses in the area are unobtrusive and private, and you will often have the beach to yourself. There is a Surf & Lifesaving club that patrols the most popular area of the beach for swimming during summer. Please be careful in the water! The West Coast is known to be deceptively dangerous for inexperienced swimmers. PLEASE use the wifi sparingly - it is a rural connection and costs $1 per GB, so watching Netflix etc is super expensive. I want to continue providing WiFi access for my guests but in order to do so we need to embrace the beautiful surroundings a little more and embrace the phone/computer a little less :)
    Karekare is close to the bustle of Auckland City, yet has the serenity of a remote village.
  • A great little spot with amazing native bush outlook. Great bird watching, and wonderfully comfortable beds. The space is totally friendly and stylish, with home comforts for an easy stay. We were lucky enough that we got to watch native birds that came close to the house. Just as a note make sure you get a good run up before you approach the driveway. Awesome little spot.

    Ash2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • My friends and I had a wonderful time soaking in the nature that surrounds Marcus’s place. The location was perfect, being so close to Karekare Falls and the beach!

    Alex2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful little garden, great lettuce and herbs...great touch for people who love fresh food....a new deck was added our neighbor told us which was fantastic...sounds of cool birds...a wood pigeon visited both mornings...everything we needed was there. Thank you Marcus!

    Rebecca2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing home in such an incredible location. The view from the balcony is peaceful and the surrounding forest is stunning and full of wildlife. We loved exploring the local waterfalls and Karekare beach. Would highly recommend

  • The views at this place were amazing! We loved all the windows and it had everything we needed. Our hosts even brought us down fresh fish they had just caught! We had a great stay

    Johanna2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great family and airbnb (lots of space) close to the beaches. Our kid was spoiled with a lot of great toys:)

    Matthijs2019-04-24T00:00:00Z
  • Estelle has a wonderful home hidden away near the beach. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was fully stocked with pots and pans. The highlight of the stay had to be Estelle's hospitality. She made and effort to say hi when we would get in, offered great travel advice and makes a great cup of coffee. The only warning I have is be ready to drive on a narrow windy road to get to the house. However that's the same road to get to the beach, so I'd say it was worth it.

    Karekare, Auckland, New Zealand

    This stylish holiday house is perfect for a relaxed getaway. Surrounded by nature, close to Karekare beach and less than an hour's drive from central Auckland. Architecturally designed, two-level home with open plan living downstairs, two double bedrooms upstairs and a spacious deck for outdoor dining and relaxing. Sunny and luminous with exceptional views across a valley of native New Zealand forest. A beautiful, compact house in a unique location. Enquiries for longer stays welcome.
    “Few stretches of sand have more personality than Karekare. Wild and gorgeously undeveloped, this famous beach has been the setting for on-screen moments from Oscar winner The Piano to Xena: Warrior Princess.” (Lonely Planet) After falling in love with Karekare's unique natural environment we designed and built our family holiday home here in 1990. The house is a compact, two-level design, with open plan living downstairs and bedrooms upstairs. Being north-west facing, means the house has all-day sun. The large, private deck functions as an extension of the living area and in summer we usually eat on the deck under the shade of the large tree that the deck has been built around. The house is 1km from the beach - 4 minutes by car or 15 minute walk. Karekare has featured as the location for numerous movies and in 2017 was voted No. 2 in a list of the best beaches in the world, by Passport magazine. Karekare is a great holiday place for nature lovers, walkers and surfers.
    Karekare is a unique wilderness area, part of the 16,000 hectare Waitakare Ranges Regional Park. You are surrounded by native trees and birdlife.
  • A wonderful location! But you must love the live in the busch.

    Roland2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Judith was extremely accommodating and kind when it came to some last minute changes to our itinerary. The property and location is top notch, but the host completes the package. Will absolutely look forward to staying in the future.

    Elise2020-01-01T00:00:00Z

    Mikko2019-12-24T00:00:00Z

    Luke2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • This home met all of our needs. Its close to KareKare Falls, Piha Beach, & Kitekitefalls. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook. The beds are very comfortable. The yard has flowers that attract Tui's and its lovely to watch them. Our host Judith was so informative and truly went above and beyond to make our stay great. Would definitely return.

    Maryellen2019-11-21T00:00:00Z

    Mary2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Judith’s place is a quiet haven in beautiful Karekare. So quiet and relaxing, all you can hear is the native birds in the surrounding bush. The house had everything we needed for a long weekend stay and the perfect size for two couples. Would highly recommend.

    Two private cabins with decks around. Set in a quaint and quiet garden has views of the Piha. Only 5 minutes walk down the track to Piha Beach, with lovely views over garden, bush, and beach from both cabins. A nice place to read a book, enjoy a sunset drink, or just get the sand off between swims. Comfortable for couple with ensuite toilet and separate cooking facilities. Outdoor shower. The fold out lounge bed is great for kids under 12.
    You have your own private kitchenette and balcony (wrapped round the side and back of the cabin facing the bush). One cabin works as a cosy bedroom, the other the kitchen shed with fridge, small oven, hot plate, tea/coffee and sink. A BBQ, outdoor seating and outdoor hot shower all available to you in the garden area. Great base for exploring the West Coast beaches and tracks. There are extensive gardens where i grow citrus, chillis and flowering trees amongst the coastal Nikau forest. Piha is only an hour from Auckland International Airport and is situated on a wild surf swept coast. It is a wonderful bush covered coast with famous walks on the Hillary Trail and amazing flora and fauna. Sleep with the sound of rolling surf and wake up to the call of Tui, Kereru, Kaka and many other native bird life. We can arrange surf lessons and trips to more easily accessible beaches for beginners and our learner surfers. We have a huge stretch of coast running North South in the westerly subtropical belt. Auckland is situated between the Tasman and the Pacific oceans so we have the opportunity to surf two oceans in one day. Usually our best surfing happens in the New Zealand summer which runs from December to May. Surfing in winter presents huge swells and onshore winds so sometimes we have to travel a considerable distance. Our Local beaches are awesome with big waves and with strong rips so good wave knowledge and some experience is necessary. Always swim between the flags.
    With amazing views overlooking Piha beach, the relaxing sound of the distant surf and the call of the moreporks (NZ native owls) its the perfect its Its a perfect escape for a couple or small family. Just a short 5mins walk to Piha beach, Cafe, RSA, Surf Club, Bowling Club and Piha store. 45min drive to Auckland city. Safe neighbourhood set in extensive hillside gardens overlooking Piha Beach.
  • Lovely cabin in perfect location just 5 minutes walk from the beach! Nice little touches like fruit and homemade bread put out in the morning, and no hassle checking in at all. Outdoor shower was really warm and actually very nice. We had a great night stay here, thank you!

    Jessica2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Steve's place was in a wonderful location with easy access to the beach. The space was as advertised. Communication was quick and responses were very helpful. Would recommend staying here if you are coming to Phia.

    Kellie2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • A unique experience staying in a cute rustic cabin with views of Lion Rock and Piha Beach enjoyed from the balcony. Restful sleep in a comfortable bed with the sound of the waves nearby. Steve welcomed us warmly and shared great travel tips. A delicious breakfast tray with homemade bread was a special treat!

  • We had a quiet and relaxing stay. The space was clean and cozy. It was an easy walk to the beach. Steve provided a lot of great recommendations for places to check out in the area. If you get a chance check out the Piha Cafe!

  • Steve is the perfect host, always there with a big smile when you need him. And then, there is the bread... book quick, this is a great place to stay!

    Ella2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great place over two huts. The sleeping hut was windows on two sides of the building giving a feeling of sleeping in amongst the forest. With all the birds singing around and the sound of the beach. Which you could see through the trees. Insect mesh screens on the windows too meaning you could open the windows wide and let the fresh air and sound flow through. Loved it. 5 minutes walk to the beach. And what a beach. Steve a great guy too, friendly and helpful. Makes good bread, too.

Gorgeous views from the balcony and the hot tub is just the icing on the cake. Endless amounts of information on local walks, hikes and places to visit. I couldn’t recommend this stay anymore. Big thank you and hope to visit here again.

An architecturally designed home on a stunning cliff top location over looking one of New Zealands most famous beaches - but the best part was this was like visiting old friends from the moment we met.

    Come stay in our secret hideaway atop Auckland's Waitakere ranges. Rest in your own log cabin on stilts, away from the bustle of the city. With a national park of subtropical bush on your door-step, and stunningly beautiful beaches 15 mins away, this is a true haven for any type of traveler - you'll never be short of an adventure.
    The cabin is a separate building to the main house and you have it all to yourself. There's a full kitchen, living area and a partitioned bathroom/ shower all in an studio layout.
    We live in the middle of what we call the bush, so it's blissful isolation. You're 10 minutes drive from Titirangi village with shops/ restaurants and cafes. 15 minutes from incredible beaches. Bush-walks on your doorstep. 30 minutes drive from central Auckland.
  • If you're looking for a cozy little place to get away for a while, this is it.

    Zach2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay with a wonderful host! Thanks so much Sean 😊

    Alexandra2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Sean's place is quite simply fantastic. A cozy cabin nestled in the woods, Sean's place was inviting and very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked, bathroom (and overall space) was sparkling clean. The views from the balcony are breathtaking (specially during sunset). We very much enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it!

    Marcelo2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This was probably one of my favorite stays in New Zealand. The place was very jungle like with a cool Tarzan cabin feel. The entire backyard was so beautiful with a pool and also a swing, similar to Bali pictures where you swing over a jungle. Sean and his roommates were especially nice and fun to talk to. There were also some pets minding their own business relaxing around the place as well. The location was near a small town where you can get some food or gas if needed. There can be mosquitoes at night, but Sean does include mosquitoes nets so just drop those down before night hits and you should be good. Would definitely recommend this place!

    Tung2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Had a nice stay at Sean’s, he was really helpful and let us drop some stuff off early. Main bed was really comfy, sofa bed less so but that’s expected, thank you!

  • Comfortable and stylish, well equipped and at a fantastic location. Wish we had longer than just one night. Sitting on the sun deck watching the waves with a bottle of wine - heaven!

    Sally2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • What a magnificent location. The view from the house was spectacular and it was great to be able to wander across the road and right onto the beach. The house itself is beautifully appointed. I had a wonderful one night stay.

    Elizabeth2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very welcome at Brenda. Great apartment with great views. In two minutes you are on the beach. Brenda is a fantastic host who is on hand to offer advice and great tips. Thanks again for the wonderful time.

    Come and relax with our NZ birds in this peaceful forest-garden setting. Stand alone cabin with double bed. Bathroom a few steps away, shared with host. Kettle, toaster, gas cooker, cups, plates, towels & linen. Surf beach & store 10 min easy walk.
    Secluded sunny escape in a tranquil spot. The classic character hut was once the laundry to the main house on the site. The small, amazing space is surrounded by stunning trees and garden. Inside you'll find a comfy, double bed length 1.87m with sheets and duvet, drawers, hanging space and a handy bench for sitting or for your bags. Enjoy the morning sun on the deck with table and chairs and watch for the birds. On chilly days you can sit beneath the fluffy blanket and use the small heater and electric blanket
    The Piha Beach Hut is tucked behind the main house up a driveway from the no-through road that leads to the stunning Piha waterfall. The waterfall track is open and 5 mins walk from the hut but most forest tracks are closed to prevent the spread of Kauri dieback disease killing these trees. Please ensure all mud is removed from shoes before leaving Piha.. It is 10 to 15 minutes to beach and cliff paths. Ten minutes walk to the village store, Piha cafe and locally-run bar. RSA restaurant and Piha Surf club are great for eating-out and our community run art gallery is perfect for holiday gifts Thurs-Sunday.
  • Claire’s place was absolutely beautiful, a complete oasis, and is as seen in photos—a place of much needed serenity. I felt like I had a home away from home. The stay was remarkable and close to so many amazing places to enjoy nature, hike, and have a great swim on the beach. The nearby Piha Cafe was also so delicious to eat and dine at while there. I greatly recommend this stay in Piha.

    Victoria2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible place to stay, exactly (if not better) than described. Claire is a fab host - she has thought of everything you might need, and is very helpful with any questions.

    Helen2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Claire's place was the perfect spot to relax and unwind after a red eye flight. The accommodation was very cozy and comfortable, as well as a quick walk to the beach or Kitekite falls!

    William2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I had heard how beautiful Piha is and were keen to visit - we were not disappointed! We had such a lovely time staying in this beautiful hut, with everything provided we could possibly need, including cooking facilities. There is so much to see just in the garden but it is also within easy walking distance of the beach and kitekite falls, both of which you absolutely must make time to visit. Claire is a wonderful, thoughtful host who was happy to chat but also gave us plenty of space to enjoy our Piha break.

    Helen2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Claire’s place is exactly as advertised, but her welcome is above and beyond description!

    Martin2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Claire's little hut. The room is suitable for two persons (adults). The bathroom is shared but very nice and the kitchen is small but very well equipped. Claire's place is well located and it's only a short walk to the beautiful waterfall track as well as to the the magnificent beach. The hut is just a lovely place with an even lovelier host! Highly recommended

  • A fab wee place to stay with the most perfect view. The stars off the balcony were sublime and the sound of the breaks from the beach will lull you to sleep at night! Highly recommended!

    Corrie2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely stay with a million dollar view! Spectacular sunsets from the beautiful deck. The house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I would recommend this place to couples or small families. It’s a short drive to the beach, which you could walk as well, but walking back up might be an effort with the hills, so I would suggest having a car. We’ll be adding this to the list of places to come back to!

    Ali2020-03-18T00:00:00Z

  • This is one of the coolest spots I’ve ever stayed at. It has a tiny home feel and all the amenities you’d need for a couple day getaway. The outdoor shower and bathtub was so nice to get in at night. The space is super clean, cozy and a lot of fun to stay in. My girlfriend and I absolutely loved it and would stay here again in a heartbeat. Elke thought of everything and we’re so glad we had the chance to stay here.

    Josh2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Kowhai Cottage! The hosts were super approachable and easy going, even going out of their way to help me break into my suitcase I had locked myself out of =P A cosy space and a unique experience that I didn’t expect to find in Auckland. The location was great for us as it was away from the busyness of the city, but not too far to head back into town. The personal touches of having some fridge/pantry items available, as well as a bath bomb and candles helped us to feel at home and enjoy the space more. Even though there are other houses on the property it still felt private and didn’t take away from our experience.

Thank you for creating this space to enjoy.

    Stand alone Cabin in the heart of the Waitakere rain forest, 45 minutes from Auckland CBD. Perfect for Couples. A Low-Fi getaway.
    The house is a stand alone Cabin in the heart of the Waitakere rain forest, 45 minutes from Auckland CBD. The cabin is close to Kare Kare beach and a short drive to Piha beach. It is a secluded setting in the Waitakere rain forest with views over the valley. The cabin is ideal for couples and families with older kids. The nature of the deck and internal staircase make it unsuitable for smaller kids. Pets are okay. There is a double bed, a single and a smaller single bed. There is a wood burning stove to cook on in addition to an electric hot plate, frying pan and microwave. There is a fireplace for cozy nights. Shower, separate bath and flush toilet. There is a turntable with records and a great DVD collection. It's a low fi getaway!
    Although 45 minutes from the heart of Auckland, this is a tranquil spot in the heart of the Waitakere rain forest. Close to iconic West Coast beaches.
  • Beautiful and colourful bach in secluded forest location. Best place ever to relax in quiet environment with a rich bird life. Steep driveway, but nothing beats a bit of excitement

    Finn2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • We LOVED everything about our stay at the cabin. It is a cosy, rustic, stylish and peaceful retreat hidden in the lush Waitakere Forest - which made us feel away from civilasation for the time we spent there. Couldn't recommend this place more, gorgeous views, amazing vinyl collection and a movie choice for everyone.

    Kaitlin2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Second time we stayed at Esther's place and it felt like coming home. Such a good atmosphere. Just listen to good music, read a nice book, cook a simple meal, have a beer and switch off and relax. All this while looking out over the treetops. Thanks so much Esther. Would love to come back again.

    Charlotte2020-01-12T00:00:00Z

    Osman2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • The ground floor of Jacqui’s house and her garden are filled with oriental curios and examples of her weaving art which make for an unusual stay. The 2 bedrooms are great but the fridge, microwave and other facilities are limited. The house is perfectly placed to get to the beaches and the various cafes that offer good food. We can recommend it.

    This cabin sits only a little below the Piha lookout giving surf views out as far as Murawai. Fantastic sunsets all year round and curious birdlife to share it all with. This is a surfer's hut but without the crowds. A hideaway from the main drag. Your hosts, Mike and Erin, are accomodating and happy to leave you alone to enjoy the space but are within cooee if you need anything. This bach is a work in progress but clean, warm and dry. It will only get better each time you visit.
    There is off-road parking available and plenty of space for surf boards and the like.
    Set in a volcanic basin, Piha has good food, coffee, a choice of surf breaks as well as being set in a regional park with many great walks available.

  • Very relaxed, laid back. If you want stupendous sunsets and independence this is your bach. Jess was very friendly and let us check out a couple of hours late so we could enjoy the beach at leisure.

  • Perfect hideaway in a gorgeous location! Thoughtful touches with milk and water in the fridge and tea and coffee. Jess is super friendly and have some excellent tips on beaches, walks and places to eat. I would definitely stay again. Thank you!

    Enjoy the breathtaking elevated views over Karekare beach from your balcony. Access the Hilary trail right on our doorstep, or head to Piha and Karekare beaches for a dip in the ocean. Then come back and soak in the hot tub amongst the Tuis! A truly relaxing, Piha experience!
    A spacious double bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and bathroom en-suite (shower but no bath). Outstanding views from the deck overlooking Karekare beach and bush. There is a sunny enclosed patio space with tables and chairs, barbecue and a spa for your use. You will have shared use of our family home, including the lounge, dining room and kitchen. We have two children aged 12 and 14 who are very well behaved! We have 6 lovely chickens - feel free to pop down to the chicken coop and grab a few eggs! We don't have any roosters! We are getting a puppy in September 2019 but we will ensure that he will not be in the shared space - unless guests would like to meet him of course!
    Stunning beaches - we are a 5 minute drive from Karekare beach and Piha beach so take your pick! We are right on the Hilary trail and there are other bush walks five minutes drive from us. Piha village has a huge amount of variety for eating - not to mention the best chips in New Zealand at the local fish and chip shop! On top of that there is the Piha Cafe, the Surf Club, Bowling Club and RSA for your pick of eateries. There is also the Piha store, surf shop, library and post office. Please note that if you want to do a food shop it is best to go to a supermarket before you get to Piha as the shop at piha has limited stock.
  • We received a warm welcome from Luan into their beautifully located family home. Our stylish bedroom was spacious with epic sea views and had a lovely balcony . Great kitchen &dining table with same spectacular views ( if you're lucky fresh eggs from happy hens !!) ,cosy lounge and a jacuzzi to relax. Only short drive into Piha and plenty of tramping on your doorstep. We felt very welcome and enjoyed chatting to all the family, including their adorable labrador puppy. Could have not chosen a more beautiful place and nicer hosts for a very special occasion.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Luan's home. We made use of the spa which was great in the cold weather! The space is stylish and super clean. We enjoyed some eggs from the pet chickens in the morning which was a great touch. We wished that we were staying for longer.

    We love sharing our beautiful home with guests . We are up and above Piha with stunning panoramic views to the sea & beyond. We have two beautiful bedrooms (advertised separately) with a shared bathroom between both bedrooms. Warm, cosy, relaxing with excellent wardrobes. You will share the main living areas with us, living room with TV and of course our stunning views! The two bedrooms are ideal for a couples getaway or girlfriends escape.
    We’ll offer a basic breakfast to start your day and there are many dinner / lunch options down in the Piha hub (the Famous Piha cafe for breakfast/lunch/dinner, The Piha Store with coffee and cabinet food with excellent food choices & the Piha RSA for a drink) There are many wonderful walks just right out from our property, beautiful beaches, waterfalls and more.
    Piha is a unique destination, beauty like no other. Piha is a place of tranquil power and beauty, with a long beach of fine black iron -sand, spectacular rugged and historic coastline populated by a small, environmentally sensitive community. A mecca for surfers, swimmers, and picnickers, Piha is the place where people go to "get away from it all". There are wonderful bush walks right at the doorsteps of our property, waterfalls, beaches, and more. Karekare beach is a short drive away. With also Titirangi village approximately 30 minutes away, Auckland CBD approximately 50 minutes away, you can experience the best of both worlds.
  • There is so much beautiful. The view was amazing. The room was comfortable. Perfect break fast:) Maria&Gabriel are so friendly and so kind. I want to stay again on one day. Thank you so much.

  • No words to describe! Such an incredible home in a very special town. Maria and Gabriel are two of the most magical people I have come across and they welcomed us into their home with open arms. Can’t wait to return!

  • It was a real joy to stay at the Piha Skylounge-I loved everything about it. The house was beautiful and the view from the living area and top deck is as amazing as in the photos! But I loved the hospitality the most, Maria & Gabriel were so welcoming & friendly which was great, especially as I was travelling on my own. I loved the complimentary breakfast too-what a treat!

    Louise2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great views, great space and great hosts. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Maria and Gabriel are the best of what Airbnb can be: a unique experience that feels more like visiting friends than booking a hotel room. I highly recommend.

  • Our stay with Maria and Gabriel was great! They are warm-hearted, super friendly and great conversationalists, we really enjoyed chatting with them over the course of our time in Piha! Maria and Gabriel also have great local tips. The room was comfortable and stylish, and the chocolate they provided was a nice touch, as was the downstairs tea and coffee station. The provided breakfast spread is plentiful and the views from the living room are unbeatable!
