Spend time away from the city in our tranquil cabin known as the Potting Shed. Lovingly refurbished using reclaimed timber, the Potting Shed overlooks Waimauku Valley & the Woodhill Forrest. Close enough to Muriwai Beach that you can hear the waves at night amongst the calls of native morepork birds. ***During level 4 in NZ we are asking guests to use the bbq near the cabin instead of the shared kitchen and to self isolate down in the cabin area. Minimum stay during this time is 7 days. ***
“Great location to base yourself if you're wanting to tour West Auckland or get out of the City. There is lots to do around the area as well (Muriwai Beach, wineries and breweries). We made great use of the wood fire pizza oven and the hot tub, and the airbnb was very comfortable even in Winter! Tanglewood Retreat would be awesome to book out with a larger group in the Summer time too. My only recommendation would be to check in while its daylight so you can get your bearings, it would have been difficult to find the kitchen and toilet block in the dark if not for Stace's partner showing us. We will definitely be back!”
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.
“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.”
Available short-term for guests is a double bedroom with private bathroom for a single or couple. You will be sharing the rest of the house with us, a professional couple in our early thirties. We have recently made this room up to be an official guest room so please come and stay with us! There is a desk, chest-of-draws, wardrobe space, and the bed is super comfy! Our bedroom is at the other end of the house so you will have some privacy. Other areas are shared with us.
“We had a great stay! The house offers everything you need, the bed was very comfortable and it was nice to have a our own bathroom. Very new and lovely neighborhood close to the beaches and Auckland. We would definitely recommend it :)”
