Private Cabin set in the bush, 10 minutes walk to Muriwai Beach to see the Gannets & Muriwai Golf Course is on your doorstep. The cabin is 5 years old with a Queen bed below & double bed on the platform, a modern bathroom, kitchenette, freeview TV and free WIFI. Suitable for 1-3 adults but if you are going to use both beds I have a minimum of 2 nights in the winter. In daylight saving hours I have a minimum of 2 nights always. Please note it's just a little cabin and very basic.
This little cabin is set in the bush, ten minutes walk from Muriwai Beach, the well known Gannet Colony and 5 minutes drive to the famous Muriwai Golf Course. There is a Queen bed below and double bed on the platform. It is perfect for a couple or two single people. It is too small for 4 people so please don't book if you are 4 people and that includes children. You have your own bathroom with a walk in shower and a little kitchen that includes a one element induction cooker, small mini oven, microwave, fridge, toasted sandwich maker, toaster, kettle, crockery and cutlery. The TV has freeview and the WIFI is free.
Muriwai is a little community that used to be mainly holiday homes but these days most people live here full time and commute to the city. It is a wild west coast surf beach so we have a lot of surfers and we have wonderful Surf Life Savers who volunteer so make sure you swim between the flags. The Surf School down at the beach gives lessons, hires surf boards and also hires out land yachts. Surf Kiting is very popular when the wind is right. The other attractions, apart from the 50km long beach, are the world renowned Gannet colony and the famous Muriwai Golf Club which is almost on the beach! There are many places for hiring horses or you can visit some of the vineyards. Kumeu, Huapai and Waimuaku as the Nor'West is where the first ever vineyards in New Zealand were established (Soljans, Nobilos, Matua Valley, Coopers Creek, Kumeu River etc). The Hillary Trail ends (or begins) in Muriwai. It's a day's walk along the coast to Bethel's Beach (check out the website) but the whole trek is 3-5 days. Goldy's Bush in Constable Rd is 2 minutes drive away and you walk down through the Kauri forest to an amazing waterfall (it is all down hill though!) There are steps down to the beach from my street or you can walk through the Edwin Michelson bush track if you prefer. I like to walk through the bush to Maori Bay to check out the Gannets and then down the path to the main Muriwai Beach. From there I either walk along the beach or go to the Sand Dunz cafe for an icecream, burger or cup of coffee before the walk home up the steps. We have the Sand Dunz cafe near the beach and the Muriwai Lodge Topshop up the road, both of which do really nice take-aways plus the Link Café at the Golf Club is open to the public 10am - 3pm and for meals on Friday nights. The Muriwai Lodge does home-made take-away curry's every Thursday night but is closed on Wednesdays. The Full Moon cafe in Waimauku (open 7.30am - 4.30pm) is 10 minutes drive away and has great reviews and if you don't want to drive into Kumeu there's other eating places there too. If you don't like swimming in the sea we even have a local swimming pool. A drive (or walk or bike) up Coast Road, past the Village Green (that has a tennis court, skate boarding rank and basketball hoop), takes you to the north end of the beach where you can drive onto and along the beach (for 50kms). That's also where they take the horses and there are 2 fresh water swimming holes at the car park at the end of the road. There's also tracks into Woodhill Forest from there but the main entrance to Woodhill Forest is up on S/Hway 16 - they have amazing mountain bike tracks (plus they hire mountain bikes). Just a bit further on from Woodhill Forest is the old settlement of Helensville and Parakai Hot Springs which are natural hot pools with amazing water slides. If you're in a car and you're heading north then S/Hway 16 along the Kaipara Coast is a good alternative route to Highway 1 and the Harbour Bridge. You meet up with Highway 1 at Wellsford. You could also catch one of the numerous farmer's markets that are popular now - mainly on Friday nights and Saturday or Sunday mornings. Fresh Choice supermarket is 10 minutes drive away in Waimauku and New World in Kumeu is 20 minutes drive. Both places have restaurants and take-aways.

  • Gillian and Steve were wonderful hosts, and went above and beyond for us. We arrived at the cusp of the Covid-19 outbreak and they offered support in many ways, we're very grateful to them. The location was lovely, and was just what me and my partner needed, a lovely relaxing retreat, close to many beaches and hiking trails. The bed was very comfortable, it had good WiFi and cooking facilities, it was relatively easy to get to (a car is a necessity!) and we had a great time. We would highly recommend staying here 😁

    Jack2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful little cottage that is both cosy to cuddle down in, and open to the lovely surroundings of Muriwai. It is private enough to feel comfortable, but close enough to the hosts to feel looked after.

    Baz2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was the perfect place to enjoy a couple of days of relaxation. It's just minutes from Muriwai Beach and surrounded by nature. Gillian was the perfect host and made sure I had everything I needed.

    Lara2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

  • Thank you Gillian for a wonderful stay! A perfect start to a perfect trip!

    Vera2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in Muriwai homestead for two nights after our wedding. The setting was perfect, in a beautiful rural location nearby to Muriwai Beach. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and stylish. Gillian went out of her way to ensure we had a lovely stay and added extra touches welcoming us as newly wed couple which was very much appreciated! Would highly recommend.

    Philip2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Gillian & Steve made me feel very welcome during my stay. The property itself is on a beautiful smallholding in the middle of rolling hills and yet It took me just one hour to drive back to the airport upon my departure. Comfiest bed in the southern hemisphere!

    Gabriel2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Gillians' cottage was the perfect getaway for my husband and I to get some R&R in after some hectic days in the south island! The cottage is the perfect distance from wineries and beaches alike. The property is so beautiful and has everything a couple could need! Gillian and her husband Steven are absolutely lovely. You can tell they've really thought through all the details of how to make their cottage a special place. They were communicative and helpful.

It was a very relaxing time for my partner and I (we stayed during the day instead of overnight, which Deidre has allowed us to do, even prior to booking).

    Our one-bedroom cottage is a tranquil haven with a separate kitchen/living area which looks out onto the vege garden. Private entrance with off street parking outside the door. Heating/aircon. Breakfast - muesli, yogurt, toast and egg - included. We are very close to the centre of the historic town and heritage buildings. Guests have easy access to a river walkway and shops, supermarket and cafes are a 5 minute stroll. Thermal hot pools are a 5 minute drive. No extra charges.
    Our place is great for singles and couples, private and comfortable. We have a couple of air mattresses available in the lounge if needed. Pets are welcome. The flat has a hob, microwave and fridge and all the crockery and cutlery you will need to eat in if you choose. There is a new TV with built in DVD player plus a selection of DVDs and books.
    Helensville was the staging post in the nineteenth century for people heading North to the gumfields. MIgrants caught the train here from Auckland, and then a boat to go North on the harbour. We have a brochure for a walk around the town where you can see buildings used in many period films.
  • Wonderful overnight stay, we were flying back to Brisbane the next day and this was the perfect place to spend our last night. Walking distance to the wharf and town shops and away from the bustling city area of Auckland but only 1 hr drive away. So many homely touches and breakfast included. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend. Thank you Rhiannon

  • Such a lovely little place with a beautiful view. You can’t beat it for a nice relaxing time away :) So cosy, so clean, and with everything you need. The owner was also very quick with communication and very welcoming. Would love to stay again!

    A separately set cottage with leafy views over the paddocks of a white galloway farm just 45min drive from Auckland CBD. Perfect first stop North from the airport. Private and filled with natural light, it's a lovely option for those looking to take a quiet getaway with a country flavour. Inc a renovated bathroom, kitchenette (fridge, kettle, hot plate, toaster, microwave w external dish wash area) and comfy couch (folds out to a queen size). We live in a separate dwelling next to the cottage.
    We live in a separate dwelling next to the cottage. As far as farm experiences go, (as we live on one), we'd love to give you a taste of the farm fresh milk to make that morning coffee all the creamier... walks on the farm are also welcome - just chat to us about where to go and what animals are out.
    Our closest town is Helensville, located a few kilometers away. The town is pretty humble with some great little shops, a couple of cafes (a Kombuchery even!), and for your convenience - a medical centre, Countdown, post shop and a lovely playground behind the library for the kiddies. Via the back roads we are just 15min drive to some wineries (The Hunting Lodge winery is awesome!), and 25min drive to Kumeu. We're also a 25min drive to the East coast (Orewa) and the West coast (Muriwai), so you have loads of options to keep yourself busy on a day out (beaches, markets, bush walks, a sculpture trail walk, shopping, restaurants, wineries etc).
  • Great place!

  • Traveling trough New Zealand the last three weeks, we spent every night in a new place. Victoria and Joe‘s house was by far the best we’ve seen! It was extremely clean and tidy, the bed was extremely comfortable, there is a big TV with Netflix, the view from the room is stunning, the dogs are gorgeous and the hosts as a couple are simply wonderful. The only downside is that we didn’t get to spend more time there! Couldn’t recommend them enough!!! :)

    Olga2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Top hosts here, great Airbnb, comfortable bed, sparkling clean, near by all that you need, vineyards, basic shopping, gas station, etc! I’ll definitely be back if I can!

    The room is a simple and calm place to rest your head with a beautiful view of dense native bush. It is next to our house so please ask for anything specific you may need and we'll try our best to accomodate you - drying racks if you're a surfer, a desk if you're working, an iron and ironing board for a wedding etc. Etc.
    This is a 1950's bach and sleepout. It feels homely and light. The native Bush in front of all of the neighboring houses joins together to create a peaceful outlook with beautiful Kauri trees and native birds to look at.
    I love living here. I love the proximity to the beach and the city both. I love the local walks and the community feel of the place. Cable road is a nice street to live on of like minded people who appreciate the Bush and native birds immensely.
  • Friendly dog, and people in a quiet place near some great surfing.

    Megen2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful room set in an idyllic location with a beautiful and very welcoming family hosting. Set in the hill just back from the beach the room was exactly what we needed after a long flight. Fresh clean sheets and a comfortable bed, led to a perfect night's sleep. Jessie gave us plenty of tips and tricks for the rest of our trip which I'm sure will make it all the better. An absolute pleasure to stay at.

The host was very friendly and made us feel welcome and even though the main house is right next door, privacy was never an issue. You get what you pay for and I can recommend it for people who want to get away from the City.

    Our house is close to several great beaches, excellent outdoor & indoor activities, restaurants, cafes, shops and amenities. You’ll love our place as it is a new house in great condition and kept immaculate. Most suited are solo and business travellers however a couple may also choose to stay as the second single bed pulls out from the main single bed (forming a temporary double).
    Enjoy a bbq on our outdoor deck with picturesque views over Millwater.

The time I spent here was great and I would definitely recommend to others!

  • Loved staying at Kirsten's place. The house is remote on a hilltop. We were warmly welcomed by a wonderful family, two dogs, a goat, chickenand horses. Bed is super comfy and the shower has indeed a beautiful view. We had lovely conversations, got great tipps and would totally come again.

    Carina2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • A glowing report, so friendly but I believe if privacy was what you wanted they would anticipate this and oblige. The bed and pillows were super luxury to a level of comfort never felt before. Thoroughly recommend the home of Kirsten, Laurie and their 2 dogs who loved both me and my man.

    Margaret2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The house is secluded, in a beautiful setting. Chickens, two goats, two horses, two dogs and one cat are walking around the house. We received a warm welcome and were given tips for places of interest on our route. The guest room is neat and has its own entrance.

    Esther2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Kirsten's place is located in a quiet area in the middle of nature. You can enjoy farm life and native forest. The family is friendly. I spent a nice time at the farm.

    Daniel2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Kirsten. The room is very clean with a large bed. It’s a quiet neighborhood and we had a great hospitality. I recommend

    Stijn2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place in the countryside. The room is cosy and has his own deck where you can sit in the evening and catch the last rays of sunshine. Kirsten and her family are very warm and welcoming. We enjoyed our stay very much.

The area was also very convenient, along with having a fair amount of attractions. Overall it was the best Airbnb experience I’ve had.

    Ian and I welcome you to a wee taste of country life less than an hours drive from Auckland City. The Shed offers peaceful rural and water views plus the occasional, distracting visit from wild deer and peacocks. It is a restful stop on your travels, or an escape from the hustle bustle of life.
    The Shed is set up primarily as my work space, ( a women's shed), used when the Shed is vacant. There is a small bedroom which has a queen size bed with views looking across the paddock into our parcel of native bush and pond. The sunroom/lounge has a fold out double sofa and opens out onto the deck with rural views to the Kaipara Harbour. The kitchen/dining room is well equipped with a 5 burner gas hob, mini bar fridge, microwave, panini press, cooking equipment, dining table and chairs. Smart Tv, Netflix, books, magazines, a couple of jigsaw puzzles and dvds are available for 'slothing' and there are a couple of fishing rods for the keen. Come stay, relax and enjoy this space, and please leave the Shed as tidy as you found it, thank you.
    The neighbourhood is reasonably quiet. Neighbours are either farmers or lifestyle block owners, the roosters that reside across the road are the noisiest! MacNut Farm and lily ponds, and the Jetty Cafe at Shelly Beach are the closest for breakfast, brunch and lunch. There is 4wd access to Muriwai Beach from the end of our road, or you can walk it (approx 40mins) Have a relaxing soak at Palm Springs Thermal pools, open 10am-8pm except Sunday which is 3pm-8pm and closed Tuesdays. Other things to see and do are the Kaipara Harbour Cruises, Fishing, Golf, South Kaipara Horse Treks. Helensville itself has a , couple of cafes, Turkish kebab shop, boutique brewery (only open weekends) and a not to miss is fresh bread and delicious pastries from the Bread Project open Tuesday to Saturday quite often sold out and closed by lunchtime. We have a library, art galleries, medical centre and a small Countdown. On the way to Wellsford stop in at Kaipara Gardens and Sculpture Trail or book a tour at Alan Gibbs Sculpture Park . Love the outdoors head to Woodhill Bike Park, Woodhill Tree Adventures, Muriwai Beach and gannet colony. The Hunting Lodge, Westbrook wineries and Tasting Shed at Kumeu are worth a taste too!
  • Ronelle and Ian were wonderful hosts. They were very hospitable, generous and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The chocolate bar welcome snack was delicious to nibble on with a glass of wine as we watched the sun set over the hills. We highly recommend this cosy, rustic and welcoming Airbnb.

    Roger2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely blown away by this beautiful little guest house, the place was spotless, check in was seamless - the place being left unlocked for us to arrive whenever we chose. Very thoughtful to leave us a little gift, and very accommodating with the late checkout. Couldn’t recommend this house more!

    Hannah2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • ‘The Shed’ is a cozy place, perfect for a weekend getaway..to escape the busy city life! Ronelle and Ian are lovely hosts, great at communicating with their guests. We enjoyed our time there and would definitely like to go back.

We loved every single moment of our stay. The Host was wonderful and very responsible by seconds. little touches like providing milk, jam, and cooking needs. highly recommend!

    Hyelim2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is awesome! It's got a super cool arty decor and is beautifully clean. It has total privacy and seclusion, a stunning view off the balcony and bedroom which makes you relax as soon as you arrive. If you are looking for serenity this place is for you. Hosts are very warm and friendly too. We went on a great walk to Muriwai Beach and enjoyed going to the Macadamia Farm and Cafe during our stay here.

    Stan2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The photos do not do this place justice. We loved everything from the quirky little pieces of art on display around the place to the wonderful view from the balcony outside. If you are looking for a place to get away from it all and just relax this is the place to go. Thank Ronelle and Ian for sharing your little piece of paradise with us

  • The room was clean, tidy and comfortable, The landlord is enthusiastic, Tell the landlord that you want a BBQ stove, I did not expect the landlord not only pushed the stove to equip us with a complete set of tools from oil to foil. The landlord also has two enthusiastic "Shepherd Cats". Cat Ed has also been enthusiastically inviting us to play at his ranch. The landlord also carefully crafted an album for the animals in his family. Every animal has a resume, and their sheep have made a lot of commercials. Very lens-like.

  • We very much enjoyed our stay at this family’s house. We loved the beauty and quietness of the countryside. We enjoyed our own conversations in the private courtyard, and when appropriate being treated as part of the family. We felt comfortable enough to cheer on the All Blacks just as loudly as we would at home with our own families, while sharing our birthday celebration bubbly and nibbles. (Hope it wasn’t too much, Sue!) We would highly recommend this place to anyone.

  • Heidi and Shane’s treehouse was lovely! They are both welcoming and nice. My bf and I stayed for a day and a half but wish we could’ve stayed longer. The treehouse itself was unique and we enjoyed staying there. The shower has a clear wall so you can see out into the trees. It was pretty cool! Breakfast brought to the door was a very nice part of our stay. Not just yogurt or milk + cereal; a legit breakfast spread to enjoy. Would love to stay here again.

    Chi2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

  • Heidi and Shane’s treehouse was such a joy to stay at and their kind hospitality was equally matched! Nestled in the bush of their property, you feel as if you’re completely swept away in the trees. The perfect retreat for a night outside of the city. The chickens and shower views were a treat! Not to mention waking up to homemade breakfast and eating on the deck was sublime. Would absolutely recommend.

The chalet itself was just beautiful, sparkling clean, and tidy! The big double doors open out on a gorgeous wee deck! The highlight of our trip was either the delish fresh breakfast delivered in the morning or the amazing glass shower wall! Cant recommend Heidi and her property enough!! Would definitely love to come back here one day :)

The little touches she added really made the stay great (try her jam!!), I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Helensville which is a 15 minutes away there are some great little shops, a couple of cafes, and for your convenience - a medical centre and supermarket. Via the back roads we are just 20min drive to wineries (The Hunting Lodge) and 25min drive to Kumeu. We're also a 25min drive to the East coast (Orewa) and the West coast (Muriwai), so you have loads of options to keep yourself busy on a day out.

  • Great space, gorgeous touches to the place. We were able to explore the property and see the animals which the kids really enjoyed. Loved it!

    Samantha2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • A great stylish spot in a tranquil setting. It was perfect for us - a little calm escape at the end of the day!

  • Great place to stay. Lovely outlook and very private. Would happily stay again. I’d take my own pillow if you have access to one as they were really thin. I’ve suggested to nick and Rae to look into these. Very clean, tidy and comfortable cottage.

  • Nick and Rae's place was perfect for our family of four. Our 11 year old felt comfortable sleeping in the second bedroom, which as described in the listing, must be accessed via the deck area. The entire space was stylishly decorated and sparkling clean. Rae came down for a quick hello and we enjoyed the fresh eggs that were left for us. If you're looking for a quiet place to unwind, this is it!

  • What a little GEM. The serene surroundings alone set the peaceful stay. Not far from Puhoi, Matakana and Leigh. Owners were welcoming whilst also giving us our privacy. Would definitely stay here again.

    We are renting out our beautiful Cobhouse. The Cobhouse sleeps 2-4, with a loft that holds a king size bed as well as a fold out couch downstairs which can sleep an additional 2. There is an outdoor toilet right outside the Cobhouse, as well as a brand new beautifully built toilet and shower block a short stroll away. There’s also a shared rustic indoor kitchen and hang out area over by the toilet & shower block. Get back to nature and enjoy tranquility like no other.
    The Aroha Cobhouse has truly been a labour of love, with so many people from all different backgrounds and parts of the world coming together to create this beautiful space. Using traditional building techniques and all natural building products we have created a buiding like no other. The cobhouse is completely off-grid, and apart from the concrete in the foundations is built out of completely natural and recycled materials.
    We are a 10 minute drive from Muriwai Beach, a great surfing spot and home to a spectacular colony of gannets which is worth checking out over summer when they're nesting. There are many beautiful walks in the area including the Te Henga Walkway. We also only a 5 minute drive to Woodhill Forrest. There are many vineyards closeby, and Hallertau Brewery is about 15 minutes drive. Trees Adventures is a 5 minute drive. Bethells Beach & Lake are not far, and neither is Piha Beach.
  • A lovely cottage in peaceful surroundings. Very relaxing

  • Beautiful location, and only a 30 min drive from the city! Got some much needed fresh air. Would recommend to anyone aiming for a quick getaway from the city life. The hosts will help you with anything you need, but will also give you the time and space to do your thing.

  • Amazing location and place to stay, a hidden treasure. A beautiful rural escape with out having to travel miles....

    Wendy2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Neat little weekend getaway. Close to Kumeu and local amenities. The location was quiet and beautiful, host was amazingly friendly and welcoming. The cobhouse was perfect. The fireplace keeps it warm and cozy, there were thoughtful touches with decor and a wonderful amount of space for all of our things. Its magical place when the light hits it just right during sunset, I recommend a weekend getaway here. We’ll be back!

    Kerrie2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • The Tanglewood Retreat is an absolute treasure. The place has the most magical feel to it. We had a blissfully relaxing and rejuvenating stay in the gorgeous, cosy cob house - an experience in itself. The amenities were stylish and clean, the wood-fired hot tub was divine and the breakfast ad on is a nice touch...and was quite the spread! A perfect way to start the day. Stace and Riccardo clearly put a lot of love and soul into hosting. We can't fault the amazing hospitality and we'll be excited to return when we're next in the area.

    Lisa & Tom2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot! Arrived just in time to watch the sunset and what a stunning one it was! Nearby waimauku and kumeu for dining and not far from muriwai so we were able to watch the sunrise as well!

    This is a self-contained studio with it's own private entrance. Room overlooks native bush and is part of a 5 acre property where owners live. We live in a beautiful rural neighbourhood, but are only 3 minutes to Albany village, 5 minutes to the mall with lots of dining choices and 5 minutes to the motorway and bus station.
    The studio is part of the large barn to the right of our main property. We do have a TV in the studio, but it is only set up for watching DVD's. We have a selection to choose from.
