Paua Retreat - close to Jamieson Bay and with an easy drive to Auckland yet far away from the maddening crowds. Puhoi Village and the Puhoi Pub are within a 10 minute drive. Peaceful, stunning views, everything for a pleasant stay. . Ideal for couples - if you are a business traveler working in the Albany area this would be perfect. Mahurangi West is the new place to be - close to Auckland, stunning views, great beaches and super quiet!! Paua Retreat is ideal for a short holiday.
Paua Retreat is a sunny space with everything for a short or longer stay. Part of a main house but totally separate. The owner lives for 90% of the year in Perth, Australia. There is one bedroom and a full kitchen - everything for a full meal. Lovely deck to sit out on and watch the sun set and rise!!
The guest have total access to the property - place to park car etc.
Interaction with guests
The owner of the main house lives overseas and so there is total privacy.
Mahurangi West Holiday Houses manages the property but will always respect your right to privacy. We will meet you and be there when you depart but other then that we want you to relax and enjoy yourselves - we always respect our guests right to privacy and will never just "pop" in.
